Embracing Your Worth in Divine Love

Luke 12:24

Consider the ravens: for they neither sow nor reap; which neither have storehouse nor barn; and God feeds them: how much more are you better than the birds?


Beloved in Christ today, I want to share a word of encouragement with you. I want to talk to you about feelings of unworthiness, feelings of being unlovable, or feelings of self-condemnation. I want you to remember one truth as we delve into this topic: you are precious and loved deeply by our Heavenly Father.


Every one of us, at different moments in our lives, have felt unworthy or unlovable. There are times when we look at ourselves through the lens of our past mistakes, regrets, or perceived inadequacies, and we start to believe the lie that we are less than who God says we are. We start to feel unloved and unworthy. We begin to see ourselves as flawed, defective, and not good enough.


However, I want to remind you today of the beautiful truth found in the Scripture. In Psalms 139:13-14, King David speaks of God's intricate work in creating us, "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."


The Lord fashioned you. He meticulously, intentionally, and lovingly designed you. You are not a mistake, an error, or a forgotten afterthought. You are God's masterpiece, His prized possession! Despite our shortcomings, our blemishes, and our mistakes, we are still wonderfully made in the eyes of our Creator.


In Romans 5:8, Apostle Paul tells us, "But God shows his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us." Even when we were steeped in sin, completely unworthy, God, in His infinite mercy and love, sent His only Son, Jesus, to die for us. If this does not show the depth of God's love and the magnitude of our worth in His eyes, what else will?


Sometimes, we might find ourselves caught in a cycle of self-condemnation, feeling bad about ourselves because of our mistakes and failures. But remember Romans 8:1, "Therefore, there is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus." The Lord does not condemn you, beloved. He forgives. He frees. He restores.


Feelings of unworthiness, feeling unlovable, or feeling bad can be overwhelming. But, do not let these feelings define you. Instead, let God's truth about you define you. You are loved. You are valuable. You are worthy.


When these feelings start to creep in, I encourage you to meditate on God's Word. Reiterate to yourself the truths He says about you. Pray, seek His face, and allow His love to fill you to overflowing. Let His love drown out the lies of unworthiness, unlovability, and self-condemnation.


Remember, dear ones, God loves you, not because of anything you have done, but simply because you are His. So, stand firm in this truth, embrace your worth in His divine love, and let His love transform you from the inside out. May His love always guide and sustain you. God bless you.
