Look, if you sold a few sparrows, how much money would you get? A copper coin apiece, perhaps? And yet your Father in heaven knows when those small sparrows fall to the ground. You, beloved, are worth so much more than a whole flock of sparrows. God knows everything about you, even the number of hairs on your head. So do not fear.
Matthew 10:29-31 Voice
Have you ever gone through/or are going through a period where you never felt good enough; never felt loved enough; always comparing yourself to someone else and felt you needed to be perfect in order to be accepted by family, friends and peers? Have you ever had a significant other, lover, friend or family member tell you that you would never be anything; you are ugly, you are fat, and/or you are stupid? Do not accept those lies that the enemy speaks or makes you feel! The enemy comes to kill, steal and destroy, our joy, our minds and our worth and we cannot let that happen! We must speak life to ourselves! So, when you start to feel broken, empty, rejected or like a failure, remember who you are and Whose you are! Remember you are:
- Loved By God
- More valuable than sparrows
- More than conquerors
- Fearfully and wonderfully made because God made you into his own image and guess what? You are worth it!
Father God, We are so grateful that we are priceless in your eyes! When we focus on how much You love us and the price You paid to redeem us, we will come to see ourselves the way You see us and that will help us to understand how valuable we are as your children. Father, we thank you for your love, grace and mercy that You extend to us every day in Jesus Name, Amen!
