Has anyone ever felt like they just don’t stack up, like no matter how hard you tried, you just weren’t enough
Has anyone ever felt like they just don’t stack up, like no matter how hard you tried, you just weren’t enough?
Me too. You’ve got a group of people around you who no doubt feel the same too. Let me encourage you today that how we feel in a moment, isn’t who we are, instead who we are is children, sons, and daughters of the most high God, chosen, not forsaken, set free by the blood of Jesus.
The bible says this:
Since we’ve compiled this long and sorry record as sinners and proved that we are utterly incapable of living the glorious lives God wills for us, God did it for us. Out of sheer generosity he put us in right standing with himself. A pure gift. He got us out of the mess we’re in and restored us to where he always wanted us to be. And he did it by means of Jesus Christ.”
The truth is... we aren’t worthy.
But because Jesus is, we are all worthy.
How crazy is it that we all deserve to pay for our sin, but Jesus - the one person who didn’t have this debt to pay, did so! So that we could all experience true freedom, and live in his glory.
I want to encourage you today to step out of the mindset that says you’re not good enough, and instead trust that Jesus’ sacrifice on the cross was enough, and that because of that - you lack nothing.
Song for today: I want to encourage you today to listen to the song “who You say I am” by Hillsong Worship, and let the truth of who God says you are become your reality, as you step out of who the world says we are, into our true authority as children of God.
