You Are Valuable
LUKE 12:6-7 NLT 6 "What is the price of five sparrows -- two copper coins? Yet God does not forget a single one of them. 7 And the very hairs on your head are all numbered. So don't be afraid; you are more valuable to God than a whole flock of sparrows.
Thoughts of inferiority attack us all. No one, no matter how beautiful or successful, is immune.
How should you determine how valuable you are?
The best way to determine the value of something is to find out what someone is willing to pay for it. What was the price God was willing to pay for you?
ROMANS 8:32 NLT 32 Since he did not spare even his own Son but gave him up for us all, won't he also give us everything else?
The price God was willing to pay for you was the death of His Son. No greater price could have been paid!
Who should you allow to determine your value? Who is really smart enough to know you and your potential?
A parent? A spouse? A boyfriend or girlfriend? A neighbor? A boss or teacher?
Hardly! All these people are limited in their knowledge and understanding. Compared to God, they are not really that smart!
God thinks you are extremely valuable! Don't let the devil rob this precious truth from you.
While you are not yet displaying your full potential, God sees what you will eventually become. God thinks you are valuable enough to die for!
Although there are billions of other humans, you are not lost in the crowd. God knows you! He knows the number of hairs on your head! He knows every desire and dream you have. And even though He knows everything about you, He still loves you with an everlasting love!
God is committed to you. He has promised to never leave you or forsake you.
HEBREWS 13:5 NLT 5 Don't love money; be satisfied with what you have. For God has said, "I will never fail you. I will never abandon you."
In light of the amazing price God paid for you, there is no chance He will change His mind about you.
SAY THIS: Almighty God says I am valuable!
