You Are Priceless

By   /   September 24, 2011  /   Comments

I am often amazed at the number of people that I run across who have allowed someone else or even themselves to make them feel inferior and even worthless. When God created man (woman), He created man (woman) in His image and that is priceless. I will not allow anyone to make me feel less than who God created me to be. You may not think it or even know it, but God has helped me to see that I have worth. You have got to get to the place where you see yourself as God sees you.

You cannot let anyone tear down what God has built up in you. Too often in life, people allow others to dictate their worth. That is the wrong thing to do. The scripture says that everything that God made was good and very good. That says that I have value. God is the one who lets you know your true worth. God created us a little lower than the angels. As a matter of fact, we are God’s greatest creation. That may not mean much to you, but that means the world to me.

How do you see yourself? Do you see yourself the way God sees you or do you see yourself the way others have made you see yourself? If you do not see yourself the way God sees you, then you are shortchanging yourself. You need to stop at this moment and say to yourself, “I am valuable!” Regardless of how people have made you feel, your value is priceless to God. Even if you have not been feeling the best about yourself lately, today should be the last day that you allow yourself or anyone else for that matter to make you feel less than the way God sees you. Whether you know it or not, the same Christ that was in Jesus is the Christ that is in you. That says that you have everything in you that you need to make it.

If you are in a marriage or a relationship that is making you feel worthless, get out! God did not create you to live like that. If you are on a job where they do not appreciate or value you, pray and ask God to deliver you or even to make them see your value. One of the worst feelings is feeling like no one sees your value. Even if you feel like that, just know that God sees your value and He values you.

Everything that you need to live a successful life is at your fingertips. God already has what you need at your disposal. When we think about success, we often think about material things, but that is not necessarily success. There are many people who have material things, but are still living miserable lives. Success as I have read before and truly believe is simply becoming what God wants you to become; doing what God wants you to do; and possessing what God wants you to own. That in itself is priceless! If you and I are priceless to God, what are we waiting for to become what God wants us to become; and doing what God wants us to do; and possessing what God wants us to have?

The answer lies within you. Who are you going to continue to listen to? Are you going to listen to the naysayers or are you going to listen to God? You have lived long enough with someone else’s label (lazy, trifling, drama queen, good-for-nothing) attached to who you are. Start believing God and what God has said about you. Start today and change the way you view yourself because you are priceless to God.
