The Greatest Gifts
After salvation, the two greatest gifts God has given us are identity and authority. Because God has given us an aspect of His nature as the core of our identity, no matter what anyone says about us or what circumstances bring to us, we can always go back to the foundation of who God says we are and stand on it, secure and unshakable. Because God gives us authority in our lives, we always have a choice. Together, our identity and our authority make it possible for us to give and receive love (for without knowing who we are, we could not accept we are loved, and without choice we couldn't give genuine love to others). So, thank God each morning for His creation of your identity that reflects the nature of God into the world, and His authority that gives you ownership of your choices instead of others (including the enemy) having power over you.
