What Defines You? (Overcomer Movie)

My husband Mike and I went to see the “Overcomer” movie recently, a good movie that asks an important question:

What do you allow to define you?

Another word for ”define” is ”shape.”

When the question was asked in the movie, I immediately answered within, ‘‘I am a child of the Most High God.”

It was interesting to see how the movie characters answered.

Remember that ”I AM” is the name of our God (see Exodus 3:14), therefore they are the most powerful words in the universe!

So be sure that the names you call yourself are ones that you want to answer to because what follows the words ”I am___________” shape the choices you make.

What are you allowing to define you?

Or does what God says about you define you?

Back in 2011, I studied the book of Ephesians and wrote a list of what I have in Christ, much like a character does in the movie.

Ephesians 1:3 begins:

Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places in Christ,

To me, that means that God gave us every spiritual blessing available, from which our natural blessings come. Good news indeed!

Here is the list I wrote. I pray that you too know who you are and what you have in Jesus:

What God has Done for Us

  1. Blessed us with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places in Christ
  2. Chose us in him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and without blame before him in love
  3. Adopted us as sons by Jesus Christ to Himself
  4. Redeemed us through His blood
  5. Forgiven us of sins
  6. Given us the riches of His grace in all abundance and prudence
  7. Makes known to us the mystery of His will
  8. Given us an inheritance
  9. Sealed us with the Holy Spirit as a guarantee
  10. Made us alive in Christ
  11. Given us His peace
  12. Given us access to Him in Christ
  13. Made us fellow citizens with the saints and the household of God

The rest of the book of Ephesians gives guidance on how to live in view of all that God has done for us!

I highly recommend the ”Overcomer” movie, especially for those who are struggling with their identity.

We have a Father who loves us to life.

When you know and believe that, it will change what you will and will not accept in your life, including in your health habits.

Be Blessed with Health, Healing, and Wholeness,
