Wisdom from Above

Dr. Charles Stanley

May 2, 2018

Your True Worth

Wisdom will enter your heart, and knowledge will fill you with joy

Proverbs 2:10

Often, when we struggle with disappointments or despair, we attribute

our failures, painful feelings, and misfortunes to our worth.

We believe that we don't deserve acceptance or anything good because

something within us is inherently lacking, useless, or broken. Sadly, it

may be very difficult to break out of those beliefs because they are so

ingrained in our identity.

But friends, if you wrestle with feelings of worthlessness, you must

accept the reality that your view of yourself is not right. The only One

who truly understands your potential and value is the Father, and He accepts

you, promises to love you unconditionally, and enables you to do

all He calls you to do. The Lord created you exactly as He wanted you

(Psalm 139:13-14). And when the Savior looks at you, He sees someone

worth dying for-a person He wants with Him for eternity. So to

overcome feelings of hopelessness or insignificance, you must accept

His assessment of your value over your own.

Zephaniah 3:17 affirms, "The Lord your God is in your midst, a victorious

warrior. He will exult over you with joy, He will be quiet in His

love, He will rejoice over you with shouts of joy." Not only does your

heavenly Father rejoice over you, but He also is committed to winning

the battles for you. Therefore, when disappointments or feelings of despair

arise, refuse to entertain any thought of worthlessness or inadequacy.

Instead, train your eyes on your Savior and Creator. And accept

who He created you to be-a vessel who shines with His glory, regardless

of your circumstances.

Father, set me free of feelings of worthlessness and inadequacy.

Thank you for loving me, redeeming me, defending me,

and equipping me to do everything You call me to.
Amen
