What a day to ponder our worth? Good Friday.
But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us. Romans 5:8
If you struggle with feeling like you are not worth it, like so many of us do, today of all days you can stand firm that you are worth everything. God the creator of the universe sent His only son to die on the cross so that YOU could have eternal life with Him. Jesus hung on that cross for YOU. He thought of YOU when He cried out His last words “It is finished.” The work He had come to do for YOU was finished on the cross. He paid the debt for your sins, you could have never paid it on your own. He paid it so that your life could be made whole. If you don’t think your worth it, stand on the truth that Jesus saw you even while you were still a sinner and felt you were worth the pain and agony He suffered to make you new. He looks at you with such love and admiration, you are a treasure.
It can be so easy to tear ourselves down, but really who are we hurting? In these times try to remind yourself that your words are not only hurting you but you are basically calling God a failure. May I remind you as I said earlier “The creator of the Universe” the one who knew you while you were still a secret even from your parents, thinks you are marvellous!
You made all the delicate, inner parts of my body
and knit me together in my mother’s womb.
Thank you for making me so wonderfully complex!
Your workmanship is marvellous—how well I know it.
You watched me as I was being formed in utter seclusion,
as I was woven together in the dark of the womb.
You saw me before I was born.
Every day of my life was recorded in your book.
Every moment was laid out
before a single day had passed.
How precious are your thoughts about me, O God.
They cannot be numbered!
His thought are precious toward you. They cannot be numbered!!! Start today on Good Friday, the day God gave everything He had just for YOU, remind yourself how He really feels about you even when you struggle to see yourselves that way.
To Him YOU are completely worth it.
Until Next Time,
