Tonight as I started my nightly routine with the kids of cleaning up the dinner mess, getting baths, etc. I began to feel myself growing more and more angry and hurting for the people in my life right now.
This evening I got a phone call from someone who was struggling with low self-esteem and fear of failure. So as I went about my routine I was thinking about not only this person, but myself and many others who I know are struggling with feelings and thoughts of inadequacy in their lives right now. And that hurts me so much to see loved ones being so down and hard on themselves. The anger that I felt was because I knew in my gut that this is Satan’s doing. He hates us, he wants to destroy us and how he does this is by seeping lies into our lives. And I refuse to let him win.
I want to just say this- YOU ARE LOVED, YOU ARE WONDERFUL, YOU ARE BEAUTIFUL!!
God loves you more than you could possibly fathom!! You are enough!! No matter what you have done or what has been done to you- you are so so so enough!! God aches for you to know how much he loves you! He created you for such a special purpose!! David says in Psalm 139: 13-14,” For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother’s womb. I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well.”
I want you to just let that sink in and wash over you. God created your inmost being, he knit you together while you were in your mother’s womb!! I love that David used the word knit here; because knitting is such an intricate thing, you have to plan what you are going to make, you have to keep the right tension in your yarn, you have to slide each loop carefully off that needle otherwise you end up with a disaster. God knit you with such care and perfection- he planned your life before you were even born!
You are fearfully made! I looked up the definition of “fearfully” and one of the descriptions said this, “full of awe or reverence.” And Reverence means,”deep respect for someone or something.” When God made you he was in awe of you and had deep respect for you and he still does and always will!! Don’t forget that wonderfully made part- you are wonderfully made- the complete knitted together human being that God made a perfect plan for!
David goes on to say, “your works are wonderful, I know that full well.”
Just let this wash over you- God’s works are wonderful, you are wonderful, God is in awe of you!!
Don’t let Satan win in your life- God wants and he aches for you to know how loved you are. And if you let him he will help you stop Satan and his lies dead in their tracks. I am praying for each person that reads this- that they feel the overwhelming love of God right now and will allow that love to conquer all fears and doubts.
