Here is a life-changing truth just for you! You Are Significant Do you know this to be true? Jesus tells his disciples in John 8:32, “You shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.” Do you see how your self-esteem could change radically just by accepting the love of Christ?”
I once suffered from low self-esteem. Growing up in a dysfunctional family I searched for love and acceptance in all the wrong places. Shame and condemnation were constant companions. Searching for self-worth is God-given, and therefore, only He could satisfy my heart. “Ultimately, the brokenness in my life became the key that unlocked the love I sought – the love of the Father.”
I learned what the Bible said about my identity in Christ. God’s amazing love overwhelmed me. As a daughter of the King, I am:
Redeemed – “Into Your hand, I commit my spirit; You have redeemed me, O Lord God of truth.” Psalm 31:5
Accepted – “To the praise of the glory of His grace, by which He made us accepted in the Beloved.” Ephesians 1:6
Adopted – “Having predestined us to adoption as sons by Jesus Christ to Himself, according to the good pleasure of His will.” Ephesians 1:5
Chosen – “But you are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, His own special people, that you may proclaim the praises of Him who called you out of darkness into His marvelous light.” 1 Peter 2:9
Loved – “For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.” John 3:16
Blessed – “Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places in Christ.” Ephesians 1:3
Choose to believe God’s word!
Thank you, Lord, for your love and grace.
Love and Blessings,
