God Wants You to Esteem Yourself Because He Does


Don’t Envy

Let me be blunt. If you spend time envying others who have qualities you wish you possessed, you are wasting your time. It is okay to admire someone else and you can even let that admiration provoke you to become stronger in your faith. But keep in mind that you will never be that person. A much wiser investment of your time and energy would be to esteem yourself by discovering the unique, valuable person you are. Focus your energies on identifying and developing your own strengths and talents. This honors the Father who fashioned you with His own hands. Everything God creates is GOOD and that means YOU.

Too Concerned about What Others Think?

This is another time waster. Yes, you want to be an example. You want others to see the love of God in you. Even still, you are not perfect, just forgiven. You can esteem yourself by embracing this truth.

Don’t be glib about your weaknesses. On any given day you are not going to have it together one hundred percent. Examine yourself and repent when you fall short. Don’t beat yourself up. Receive God’s love and forgiveness and go on.

God wants you to esteem yourself. He does. You are precious to Him. There is something He has placed in you that no one else on earth possesses. Let God work in you and bring out those special qualities. This is a process. It’s not going to happen overnight. Be patient. Give God the reins to your soul and spirit. Read and study His Word and let Him speak to your heart. If you do this continuously you will be who HE wants you to be. And, that’s all that matters.

Make these faith declarations:

I am uniquely and beautifully created by God Himself. He loves me exactly the way I am. He is helping me to become my best.

I am useful and important to the Kingdom of God. I embrace who I am, the abilities God has given me and how they might be a blessing to someone else.

I am precious to the Lord. He is always thinking about me.

I give God the reins to my heart and soul. I meditate on His Word daily to become the person He wants me to be.
