BLOG: If there is anything that Satan wants to mess up it is your self worth. If he can get you to doubt yourself, then you will doubt the One who created you.
Just to be clear, self worth isn’t arrogant pride. Self worth is believing who God created you to be.
If Satan can get a mom to believe that she isn’t capable. She will abandon her ability to raise her children.
If Satan can get a dad to believe he isn’t worth of being a dad, he can lead him to abandon in his children and his marriage.
Once your self worth is destroyed, you will look for acceptance anywhere you can find it. Morals and values don’t matter. Anything to escape the depression and discouragement. Some turn to life controlling problems. Others seek acceptance in destructive relationships. The desire to be accepted is so overwhelming it will drive you into the arms of something or something you believe will give you what you are missing.
What should you do?
Stop looking to people, causes, relationships, organizations, or life controlling problems to give you value. Humanity is flawed and cannot love you as God does.
Discover who God created you to be. Generally and specifically. You may know that you are a spouse or parent. So determine to be one for Christ. But more specifically what did God gift you to do? How is He calling you to serve Him?
Tell yourself who you are. Say it out loud if you have to. But do’t let others or this world tell you who you are. You can say, “I am a child of God, the Creator of the heavens and universe. He loves me and I love Him too.”
Stop chasing rainbows. The world promises so much if you will . . . . Don’t compromise your heart to gain fleeting recognition or a few dollars.
PRAY: Dear Jesus, show me who I am. AMEN.
