According to CEOWORLD MAGAZINE, as at 2018, the world population stood at 7.6b. This implies that around this figure are dwelling on the planet; Earth. These people are moving about, carrying out different activities ranging from occupational, recreational, spiritual, among others. The pertinent question will be the reason why these people are involved in such activities.
Marriam-Webster dictionary defines Identity as the distinguishing character or personality of an individual. There are different types of identity, these include Social, Cultural, Spiritual, National, Regional, Personal, and others.
It will be amazing to know that a larger percentage of the population are going about without a sense of identity. They do not know who they are, I am not talking about their names, gender, nationality, race and other. This identity is the description of who you are, the ‘real you’. Personal Identity talks about who you are, your inner man……. your inbuilt nature.
THE GOD OF NOW
Hear me, O Lord, hear me, that this people may know that thou art the Lord God, and that thou hast turned their heart back again.Then the fire of the Lord fell, and consumed the burnt sacrifice, and the wood, and the stones, and the dust, and licked up the water that was in the trench. (1Kings 18:37-38 KJV)
Most of the time people including Christians are of the belief that certain issues are beyond God. They look elsewhere for solutions to their problems and see God as the last resort. They see God as the remaining option when they have tried all sources. The only option remaining after others are null and void. Some people are of the opinion that God is too slow to act on issues or in some cases, fails to respond. The situation is so bad that some will pray but because they did not receive answers immediately or answers are not forthcoming, their faith faint. Like the god of Baal, thinking that God is talking, He is in a journey, He is sleeping among others (1 Kings 18:27).
I want to let you know today that God is ever present and always ready to help you.
The Bible says;
Behold, the Lord's hand is not shortened, that it cannot save; neither his ear heavy, that it cannot heal. (Isaiah 59:1KJV)
