Ignorance of who we are causes us to operate below the God kind of standards. The people who don't know who they are in God are victims of circumstances and can't see beyond their situations.  A mighty man called Gideon was hiding from his destiny, he was called of God to wipe out the midianities to free the children of Israel from their oppression but because of fear he also hide like the rest of the Israelites. God sent an angel to remind him of who he was. Judges 6:12 And the angel of the LORD appeared unto him, and said unto him, The LORD is with thee, thou mighty man of valour.

The angel reminded Gideon who he was but he started pointing at the circumstances as an hindrance. Judge 6:13-14 says, And Gideon said unto him, Oh my Lord, if the LORD be with us, why then is all this befallen us? and where be all his miracles which our fathers told us of, saying, Did not the LORD bring us up from Egypt? but now the LORD hath forsaken us, and delivered us into the hands of the Midianites.14 And the LORD looked upon him, and said, Go in this thy might, and thou shalt save Israel from the hand of the Midianites: have not I sent thee? When we get to know who we are in God we see beyond our natural strength and tap onto the Super natural because our natural abilities can't accomplish anything.Zechariah 4:6 says,.......Not by might, nor by power, but by my spirit, saith the LORD of hosts.

You see God gave birth to us and that's where we draw out identity because as He is so are we in this world.

1John 5:4 says, For whatsoever is born of God overcometh the world: and this is the victory that overcometh the world, even our faith.
