You Are Valuable

Read: Jeremiah 1:4-10

Verse: "For You formed my inward parts; You covered me in my mother's womb. Marvelous are Your works, and that my soul knows very well." (Psalm 139:14)

People may say that you don't look good. They may say, "You are skinny. You are short. You are dark." Many times we think why we are not like someone else. People often see what is lacking in their lives and then they become sad and think they are useless. What you think about yourself and what people comment about you may not be the truth. The truth is what the Word of God says about you. His Word says that you are so valuable to God that He gave His only Son to die on the cross for you. Just think about that.

Once we know how valuable we are in the eyes of God, our whole perspective changes. When someone is preparing a dish he or she takes time to prepare it well. God has also taken His precious time to make you. He has fearfully and wonderfully made you. This means that He has designed
you well. The medical profession will attest to what I just said. Every doctors agrees that a human is fearfully and wonderfully made.

Spent more of your time reading the Word of God. The Word of God will teach you to see the way God sees you. In the Bible we see God taking simple people who thought that they were weak, unable to talk, too young for ministry, unclean, old etc. and using them mightily for His glory to touch the lives of people. If we look at the latter lives of these people we see that they who thought they were of no value recognized their value in God. today, we call them the heroes of the Bible. You may think that you are good for nothing, you are useless and that you are a zero. But once God’s Word get inside you, you will become a hero. Rise up!

Prayer: I am valuable in God’s sight. I have been purchased by the blood of Christ. I have been raised together with Christ and have been made to sit with Him in the heavenly places. I am a child of God. I am the apple of God’s eye.
