“I will give thanks and praise to You, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made; Wonderful are Your works, And my soul knows it very well.” - Psalms 139:14 AMP
God created us in his image. Each one of us is fearfully and wonderfully made.
God put it on my heart to speak to those who are feeling as if they are worthless today. Maybe you have made a mistake or feel like you ruined a relationship with a friend or family member or messed up a situation at work. I’ve been there. Remember today that you are human, this means you are imperfect.
We all make mistakes and we all mess up. But God knows the heart, he knows us like no other can, and sees the struggle within, and he loves us still. His love for us is endless.
“so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through your faith. And may you, having been [deeply] rooted and [securely] grounded in love, be fully capable of comprehending with all the saints (God’s people) the width and length and height and depth of His love [fully experiencing that amazing, endless love]; and [that you may come] to know [practically, through personal experience] the love of Christ which far surpasses [mere] knowledge [without experience], that you may be filled up [throughout your being] to all the fullness of God [so that you may have the richest experience of God’s presence in your lives, completely filled and flooded with God Himself].”- Ephesians 3:17-19 AMP
There is no condemnation in Christ. This means there is no need to hold onto guilt or shame. You are washed clean by the blood of Jesus, all you need to do is ask for his forgiveness.
No matter what your situation is, there is no suffering or difficulty, that can ever separate you from God’s love. Jesus already paid your price.
“For I am persuaded that neither death nor life, nor angels nor principalities nor powers, nor things present nor things to come, nor height nor depth, nor any other created thing, shall be able to separate us from the love of God which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.” - Romans 8:38-39
So if you had a rough day, if you let yourself or someone you care for down and feel at your worst, know that you are still his Beloved. He adores and treasures you and is waiting for you to forgive yourself and see yourself the way he sees you.
You may carry with you feelings of shame or unworthiness due to things others have said about you or due to rejection you experienced from a parent, or loved one. You may have been told you have no worth and will never be loved. But God says otherwise, he loves you and wants to free you of this thinking.
“(...) having loved His own who were in the world, He loved them to the end. - John 13:1
“Your eyes saw my unformed body; all the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be.” - Psalms 139:16 NIV
God is calling you to do mighty things. There will be times you feel less than or defeated. But, you must be sure you do not stay there dwelling in that emotion for long. When you feel as if you’re at your worst, get up and declare that you are strong and are capable.
“Each time he said, “My grace is all you need. My power works best in weakness.” So now I am glad to boast about my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ can work through me.” - 2 Corinthians 12:9 NLT
Declare this with me today: Father, You make no mistakes. I know that I am fearfully and wonderfully made. I declare that all lies spoken against me have no hold. For it is how you see me that matters. You have created me with a purpose and a calling and I will not allow the lies of the enemy to blind me from seeing just how deeply you love me. Today, I choose to see myself through your eyes Lord. I see the goodness and value that you placed within me. I forgive myself and love myself today because you created me in your image. I know that the best is yet to come and I will choose to see myself through your eyes. I rejoice in your love today. In Jesus name, Amen.
Growing with you,
