I wrote a letter to our children as each became a teenager. In one I talked about our identity in Christ, remembering that when I was a teenager, I felt unsure of myself, lacking confidence. I had to learn that I was God’s beloved—His child. I said in the letter, “Knowing who you are comes down to knowing Whose you are.” For when we understand that God has created us and we commit to following Him, we can be at peace with who He has made us to be. And we also know that He changes us to be more like Him each day.

A foundational passage from Scripture about our identity as God’s children is Deuteronomy 33:12: “Let the beloved of the Lord rest secure in him, for he shields him all day long, and the one the Lord loves rests between his shoulders.” Just before Moses died, this is the blessing he proclaimed over the tribe of Benjamin as God’s people prepared to enter the land He’d promised them. God wanted them to remember always that they were His beloved, resting secure in their identity as His children.

Knowing this identity is important equally for everyone—teenagers, those in the middle of life, and those who have lived a long time. When we understand that God created us and watches over us, we can find security, hope, and love.

It's good to have you with us for today's reading from the daily bread devotional. It's titled, resting, securing God, and it was written by Amy Boucher pie. I wrote a letter to our children as each became a teenager and why and I talked about our identity in Christ, remembering that when I was a teenager I felt unsure of myself lacking confidence had to learn that I was God's beloved his child. I said in the letter, knowing who you are comes down to knowing whose you are.

For when we understand that God has created us and we commit to following him.

We can be at peace with who he's made us to be. And we also know that he changes us to be more like him each day a foundational passage from Scripture about our identity as God's children is Deuteronomy 3312 let the beloved of the Lord rest secure in him, for he shields him all day long and the one the Lord loves rests between his shoulders just before Moses died. He proclaimed this blessing over the tribe of Benjamin as God's people prepared to enter the land he promised them. God wanted them to always remember that they were his beloved, and to rest secure in their identity as his children knowing our identity as God's children equally important for everyone. Teenagers those in the middle of life, those who have lived a long time. When we understand that God created us watches over us we can find security, hope and love. Today Our Daily Bread devotional Scripture reading is from Deuteronomy chapter 33 verses one through five and verse 12 this is the blessing that Moses, the man of God pronounced on the Israelites before his death he said the Lord came from Sinai and donned over them from seer, he shone forth from Mount Perrin. He came with myriads of holy ones from the South from his mountain slopes, surely it is you who love the people all the holy ones are in your hand at your feet. They all bow down and from you receive instruction. The law that Moses gave us the possession of the assembly of Jacob. He was king over just to run when the leaders of the people assembled along with the tribes of Israel about Benjamin. He said, let the beloved of the Lord rest secure in him, he shields him all day long and the one the Lord loves rests between his shoulders. Let's pray, loving father, you created us and you hold us close.

Let our identity as your children permeate our thoughts and actions today. Thank you, Lord.

It's in Jesus name we pray. Amen. Today's encouragement was provided by Our Daily Bread ministries
