You are valuable! It’s easy to buy into the message that our world is continually shouting out at us and believe that we are nothing, but this is just not true! We are something special and this is not just positive self talk, this is reality as God created it to be. What I am about to share with you is proof positive that you are valuable, that you do matter and that there is an amazing plan and purpose for your life!
Fix Your Self Image! Because you are valuable, you need to continually be working to fix, grow and strengthen your self-image! Here are three things you need to remind yourself of continually:
1.) You Were Made In The Image Of God! In Genesis 1:27 it says: “So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them.” Stop striving for the approval of others and feel good about who God made you to be! You have a choice to make: You can base you self-image on what the world says or what God says – your choice and the choice should be obvious – you were created in the image of God!
2.) You Were Bought At A Great Price! (God has a plan for your life!) I Corinthians 6:20 says: “20 you were bought at a price. Therefore honor God with your bodies” I love the way John 3:16 puts it: “For God so loved the world (put your name here) that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever (Put your name here) believes in Him, shall not perish, but have everlasting life!” You are valuable and your value comes from God, not what others think or say! Psychologist have proven that our mind completes the picture, in other words if you see yourself in a negative way, then you will live a negative life! See yourself as unqualified, unattractive, inferior and inadequate and you will act in conjunction with your thoughts and be unqualified, unattractive, inferior and inadequate! See yourself in a positive way and you will have a positive life! See yourself as qualified, attractive, ready, willing and able and you will act in conjunction with your thoughts and be qualified, attractive, ready, willing and able! Here is an amazing truth: We become what we allow our mind to focus on! (Negative or Positive?) Focus on the reality that you are valuable because God says so!
3.) You Are Worth Coming Back For! In John 14:1-4 we read these amazing words: “1 “Do not let your hearts be troubled. You believe in God; believe also in me. 2 My Father’s house has many rooms; if that were not so, would I have told you that I am going there to prepare a place for you? 3 And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come back and take you to be with me that you also may be where I am. 4 You know the way to the place where I am going.” Jesus is coming to get us and He wants us to be together with HIm! If that does not make you feel valuable, then I don’t know what will? 2 Corinthians 4:7 says 7 But we have this treasure in jars of clay to show that this all-surpassing power is from God and not from us. Our value is in us and it has been put in us by God our Creator! My body will one day go in the ground, but my spirit goes on into eternity where there are no tomorrows, only today with the Lord!
Why You Are Valuable: You are valuable, because God created you in His image, because God paid the ultimate price of His only Son’s life so that you can have relationship and because He is coming back to get you to take you into an amazing future that words cannot even come close to describing! Find the value in you and in others – you will be glad you did!
