Faith enabled Moses to choose God’s will, for although he was raised as the son of Pharaoh’s daughter, he refused to make that his identity, – Hebrews 11:24
The issue of identity is something that many teenagers struggle with. At school, you may not be sure what group you fit in with. That might cause you to do or say things to get acceptance that you later regret.
Moses was no different. He too struggled with his identity. He had to decide did he fit in with Egypt and Pharaoh, or did he fit with Israel. It probably would have been easier to side with Egypt. He would have had lots of great clothes, friends and tons of good food. However, Moses decided instead to not make that his identity. He chose instead to follow after God.
Choosing to look to God for your identity is one of the best decisions you can make. If you base your identity on anything else than God you will always be unhappy. Anything other than God can change. Your friends could change. Your social status could change and if your identity is solely based on those things, you could be really shaken if something changes.
Instead, choose to look to God for identity. Let Him be the one to tell you your worth. When you base your identity on God and His plan for your life you’ll find true peace.
