Ready for the truth?

Our value isn’t based on things.
Our value isn’t based on accomplishments.
Our value isn’t based on the number of friends we have.
Our value isn’t based on what other people think of us.
Our value isn’t based on any type of social status.
Our value isn’t based on the family we were born into.

Our value is established by our Creator.

How much value does He place on you?

Enough value to send someone to experience excruciating pain for you. To experience rejection for you. To experience betrayal for you. To take on ALL the things that could separate your ability to see His love for you. To actually die for you.

Our value is based on how much He loves us. And how much is that?

“Greater love has no one than this, than to lay down one’s life for his friends.”
John 15:13

One of our greatest struggles we can have can be seeing the value in ourselves. Our enemy fills our minds telling us we aren’t valued, or loved. Telling us we can’t get anything right. That because we don’t have many friends we’re unloveable. That because we’re currently unemployed we’re terrible at any and all jobs. The enemy loves to make sweeping all encompassing statements of our supposed mistakes and failures or the sucky situation we feel we’re in. The enemy just wants us to feel like s#it. Basically he lies about us.

When God says, “You’re valuable to me. I love you.”

When you stop and think….

Who actually does love me?

My guess is that there are more people than you currently can name off that love you, especially if you’re under the barrage of the enemy’s lies about you. The enemy wants you to feel isolated, and alone, and like a failure. He’ll remind you over and over of your little ‘so called’ failures and mistakes … which when you step back and look at the majority of them aren’t as life shattering as he is making them out to be. Sure we ALL f#ck up. That’s being human.

But we also can decide to stand back up after being knocked down for the umpteenth time and acknowledge “God loves me.” Knowing we have people in our ‘corner’ who love us and pray for us regularly.

Do you know you are loved?

Admit it … you are.

Admit to Him you’ve made mistakes. Ask Him to forgive you and He will. Then forgive yourself.

Admitting that you are loved … is the first step out of the deep dark hole you currently feel you’re experiencing.

Our value is what God says you are worth.

“For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved. “He who believes in Him is not condemned; but he who does not believe is condemned already, because he has not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.””
John 3:16-18 NKJV

Knowing that this IS THE TRUTH… means you are VALUABLE.

Why do I know these things?

The answer is obvious to anyone who’s been there…. multiple times. It’s a battle and fight. The enemy does not want you or me to fully realize our value IN Him.

Shields up.

“….above all, taking the shield of faith with which you will be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked one.”
Ephesians 6:16 NKJV
