Message In The Music- Identity by Lecrae

There are times in our lives that we get consumed by this world. We focus on material things and we try to get the approval. This song blessed me and it taught me that no matter what anybody says or feels. My identity is found in Jesus Christ and that is all that matters. I urge you to meditate on the lyrics to the song and you will be richly blessed.

\The song is on the 'Rebel' album by Lecrae
Lyrics to Identity :
(feat. Da' T.R.U.T.H. & J.R.)

Hair, check!
Shoes, check!
A brand new fit, lookin' cool, check!
I'm lookin' in the mirror like oooh, yes!
A cover for an insecure dude, check!

But she won't feel me and they won't like me
If I ain't in them J's and them brand new nikes
Let's think deep from aside the sikey
When it's all said and done even I don't like me

He live in the gym and his hair stay faded
Late model cars so they think he made it
He's Christian, gave his life
But he still ain't satisfied, and is saved in Christ
Still finds his identity in looks and cars
If he only knew that he ain't have to look so hard
If he looked in God
It may seem odd
But he be so satisfied, it'll leave you in awe

I'm not the shoes I wear
I'm not the clothes I buy
I'm not the house I live in
I'm not the car I drive, no
I'm not the job I work
You can't define my word
We're livin' on God's reverse
Identity in found in Christ, found in Christ

Hey, how do I gain success
What do I say I'm blessed
Is it the car that I drive
Or the place that I rest
Or the way that I dress, now, now
Is it the cars in the driveway
The stage and the set
Or my face in the press
It's the applause that dies
Or the praise that's stressed
Then my face is depressed, now
It's cause my value in the work
I produce in the booth it's
[ Identity Lyrics on ]
