As humans, we have a strong tendency to spend our lives
searching for who we really are - our identity. In the process,
we go from place to place, idea to idea, and follow all sorts
of trends and philosophies just to find ourselves. All these
kinds of attempts are dead end roads. We will never know
who we are by chasing after it ourselves. We will only come
up at the end of our lives still as lost and unidentified as we
were in the beginning. Rather than seek to find ourselves
we can seek God, the One who made us. Hunger to know
Him and Who He is. If we do that, miraculously we find
that we also know who we are. If I want to know who I am
and what my purpose is, I need to seek God. Then I will
know Him and I will find me in Him.

Heavenly Father, please forgive us for trying to find
ourselves by looking in all the wrong places. We
thank you that You have provided the way to find
who we are, by knowing You. What a wonderful God
You are! In Jesus' name.

Read Matthew 16: 25

"For whoever wants to save his life will lose it, but
whoever loses his life for me will find it." (NIV)

"For whosoever will save his life shall lose it: and
whosoever will lose his life for my sake shall find
it." (KJV)
