Should you ever doubt your value or your worth, consider that Love Himself died for YOU.
Perfect died for the imperfect
Love gave His life for the greedy
Whole died for the broken
Truth died for liars
Friend died for His enemies
Selfless died for the selfish
Love gave His life for the haters
Sinless died for the sinner
The world may tell you that you are unworthy, but Jesus Christ said something very different when He hung on that cross and died so that, in Him, you could live.
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. ~John 3:16-17 (NKJV)
The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I came that they may have life, and have it abundantly. ~John 10:10 (RSV)
Dear Heavenly Father, I pray that when the world comes against us and tells us that we are unworthy, that Your Truth would speak louder. I pray that when our past riddles us with guilt and condemns us, Your Spirit would whisper the Truth of Your Grace even louder. When we can’t live up to expectations, when we doubt our value, when we simply feel unloved; that You Lord, would fill us, carry us, sustain us, and help us to understand that we are not who the world says we are, but that we are who You say we are. Help us to drown out the lies of the enemy so that we can live in the truth of the incredible love that You have poured out on Your children. Whatever the world may tell us, help us to remember that we are children of the One True God. In the precious name of Jesus we pray. Amen.
