So God created man in His own image, in the image and likeness of God He created him; male and female He created them. — Genesis 1:27 (AMPC)
Adapted from the resource Wake Up to the Word – by Joyce Meyer
Have you ever taken time to consider what you think about yourself? Most people haven’t, but it’s an important thing to do. I can remember desperately struggling for many years with my confidence and self-esteem, but when I finally learned to see myself as God does, it revolutionized my life. My father had told me I was no good and would never amount to anything, but God tells me the truth: that I’m His, and through Him I can do greater things than I could ever imagine. And the same is true for you!
It really isn’t what other people think about us that hurts us the most; it’s what we think of ourselves. This is why it’s so important to see yourself through the perspective of God’s Word. He’s created you with unique gifts, talents, and purpose, He paid the highest price (Jesus’ life) to redeem you, and He loves you with an everlasting love. Knowing that, you can truly walk in the confidence that you are a child of God!
Prayer Starter: Father, please help me see myself the way You do. Thank You for seeing me as Your child, and for reminding me of who I am in You when I forget. In Jesus’ Name, amen.
