TODAY'S WORD 4U 2DAY
YOU ARE NOT JUST ANOTHER FACE IN THE CROWD (2)Psalm 57:2
‘I can’t do anything, I’m totally useless! And they said I was pathetic. Just look at me. I’m hopeless, my life’s a mess, everyone would be better off without me.’
Have you ever thought or spoken words like this, believing inside that they’re true? If so, stop. There is good, wholesome, life-lifting truth that can take the place of these sorts of lies.
Your self-worth is not based upon what you think or what others think about you. The one true authority on your self-worth is Jesus Christ, and since He gave His own life up in order to forgive you (read these words of truth in Luke 5:20), that should tell you just how valuable you really are. And there’s more. He doesn’t allow the value He’s placed in you go to waste; Romans 12:6 tells us; ‘In His grace, God has given us different gifts for doing certain things well.’ Above all else, He has made you for friendship with Him, and to bring Him glory through that friendship.
If you don’t usually do these ‘What Nows’, can we encourage you to take a little time to try this one? Find a mirror, preferably in a place where you can be on your own! Look closely at your face for a while. Examine your eyes. Think: what does it mean that God is in you? That He is present in your physical being? Let the questions linger.
