Sometimes when I hear or read something I think, ”I’m going to have that for a DIG”.
This happened yesterday and I shamelessly steal what I heard a lovely sister preach.
Many of us feel a sense of worthlessness, thinking that we are or will amount to nothing.
This could have come from what other people have said about us in the past.
However we ought to forget about that and think about ourselves as God thinks about us.
He thinks that we are VIPs.
We have Value, we have Identity and we have Purpose.
God loves us and values us as individuals, having created us as individuals (Psalm 139 v 14).
God has provided us with an identity, we have been adopted into His family and we are His children (Ephesians 1 v 5).
God has created us with a specific purpose and plan in mind (Jeremiah 1 v 5 and Isaiah 49 v 5).
This morning you must believe this about yourself, that you have value, identity and purpose and all of this is from God.
You are a VIP; that is what God can see when He looks at you.
You are a person of value, identity and purpose.
God will always treat you in a special way, having only the best things for you (3 John 2); in a sense He is always rolling out the red carpet for you.
Speak this out today…..”Thank you Lord that you love me, value me, and have given me identity and purpose through the finished work of Jesus Christ”.
Ephesians 1 v 5…..Having predestinated us unto the adoption of children by Jesus Christ to himself, according to the good pleasure of his will
