You Are Worthy

Surely he hath borne our griefs, and carried our sorrows: yet we did esteem him stricken, smitten of God, and afflicted. But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed. (Isaiah 53:4-5)

Most days I feel unworthy. I don’t feel like I deserve anything good to happen in my life. I don’t feel worthy of love or friendship. I plain just don’t feel worthy of any kind of blessing or goodness or kindness showed to me.

Now, if I let these feelings overtake me, I can fall into a deep pit of despair and depression that becomes overwhelming, and you know Satan loves to just kick you when you are down. I’m not sure if you realize this, but your enemy doesn’t fight fair. You are not in a boxing match, for that has rules; you are in a street fight with the devil and there are no rules in a street fight. He will bludgeon you when you are down and he won’t let up.

Finally, when I come to my senses, I can hear that still, small voice say to me, “My body was broken for you and you are mine.”

Do you not realize you were worthy of His dying for you? You may not feel worthy, but you are worth-ful. No man dies for anything that doesn’t have worth. He died because you have worth to Him. He died so that you could have everlasting life with Him, an abundant life full of His blessings and goodness.

It doesn’t matter how you feel; it only matters what He says. You are His. Trust in this today, in Jesus’ name! Amen.

When I read this it made me wonder how many folks there are in this moment feeling so inadequate, so unworthy, so defeated. I pray you are encouraged and uplifted by this today, knowing that you are loved and when the enemy tries to beat you when your down just remember to look up, call out to Jesus, just a whisper of His name and He will be there with an outstretched hand to help you up. I’ve been there personally and in that moment all I could utter was Jesus and I instantly felt His presence surrounding me and I knew in that moment that everything was going to be okay. He’s just as real as the breath you breathe. He’s waiting for you to call out to Him today. You are His! He loves you!

Have a wonderful day in The Lord!
