Developing an Unshakable Identity

You might be surprised to learn that God’s opinion of you doesn’t change every day. Regardless of whether you’re having a good day or a bad day, His opinion of you is amazing. Though you might feel awful at times, God’s opinion is that you’re awesome!

A Biblical self-image is a great self-image, but you must believe what your Heavenly Father says about you in His Word. Even when everything around you seems to be shaking, here are a few examples of how your life can be grounded on God’s steadfast opinion about you.
