treasured beyond measure. We want to be people of importance and deserving of some merit. However, the feelings of inadequacy, worthlessness and negativity tend to camouflage who we are made to be and creates a false view of who we truly are. So much that our hope of finding significance becomes dim. Hence, we set out on a very treacherous trail in search for our so called deserving value or worth.
Many find pleasure in wealth, prestige, power and call it significance. Some people go so far as to change their skin color, or change body parts and claim to have found their worth. The things we find significance in has become over rated and scary. Sex has become one of the leading so-called source gaining significance. This is absolutely wrong! It is unfortunate that so many people think that they have to loose their dignity and lower their moral standards in order to feel worthy.
We often miss the point! If no one ever told you...I will! Your worth does not in any shape, size or color depends on sex, possessions, abilities, skills or achievements, nor is your relationship with other people.
People will tag you at different levels based what they see or based on a lack of knowledge of who you are-yes, they improvise who you are, therefore what you're worth. How can one know the real value of tomatoes when every market vendor sells the same kind each at a different price? It's frustrating, right?
We don't want to be confused about our significance so, here are some key points I hope you'll realize about your value.
1. You were created by God in His own image and likeness (Genesis 1:1). You are therefore a reflection of beauty beyond compare. (Psalm 139:13-15)
2.You are priced tagged by God and no one or nothing can replace you. God has brought you with a price far beyond measure. (2 Corinthians 6:20)
3. You are more valuable than you think! (Matthew 10:31). God sacrificed to give you true significance, and this is how it was proven that you are worth more than a pound of gold. He sacrificed the one thing He loved the best to give you a life of worth.
True significance comes through having a relationship with God through his Son Jesus Christ, and in
Him, we have all sufficiency (2 Corinthians 3:5; 12:9). Find your identity in God and your significance will become as clear as crystal. You will find true meaning in life as you begin to acknowledge God-the source of your complete satisfaction in life.
We need to start seeing our selves through the eyes of God rather than what others perceive of us or through worldly pleasures. What or who God says I am?
