You Are Worth It!

I thought we could all use a little refresher this Monday morning on who we are as a child of God. (Well, technically it is Sunday night, but most of you will be reading this in the morning) I know I could use a refresher and I know my friends could use a refresher. You see satan is trying to rear his ugly head in the lives of a couple of my friends and it just makes me mad!

If you are a child of God, when you awoke this morning you have a very real enemy that was at work even while you slept. He wants nothing more than to destroy you, your family and your relationship with God.

He is the author of fear, anxiety and lies. The voice that says "you are not good enough", that's his. The voice that says "you are worthless and useless", that's his also. He will try and feed you these lies every chance he gets.

Please do not listen to that nonsense!

Do you know how much you are loved? Do you know that the Creator of the Universe knows you by name and desires to have a relationship with YOU?

You were worth God giving His only son to die for you. Let that sink in for a second. Yes, you were worth it to Him!

And if you have accepted salvation that comes through Jesus Christ, then you are a Princess. That is right, you are a daughter of the King of Kings and Lord of Lords! You are joint heirs with Jesus. Now that is something to shout about! It totally blows my mind, but definitely something to shout about!

So stand a little taller today not because of who you are, but because of whose you are. You are God's masterpiece created for a purpose. Don't allow satan to feed you any of his lies today. After all, you are a Princess and you have work to do!

"For we are God's masterpiece, He created us anew in Christ Jesus so that we can do the good things He planned for us long ago." Ephesians 2:10

we can never hear this too much. thank you for being such an encouragement. satan is always on the prowl, but God defends us ever so diligently because He loves us so much. once you have tasted that love, nothing else will satisfy.

I love this sentence: "So stand a little taller today not because of who you are, but because of whose you are. " That is a great reminder for me.
