Do you ever feel like you just aren’t good enough? Either for yourself or just anyone?
Let me tell you something. The devil is a trickster. He tries to get in our minds and fills us with all these lies. He likes to make us think that we aren’t good enough to get the grades, to get the girl/guy, etc.
All these lies start filling our minds and they eventually influence our spiritual relationships with God. We start feeling like “Well, if I’m not good enough for so and so, how am I good enough for God???”
As Christians we aren’t suppose to be caught up in all this darkness. God called us to be living in the light instead. He wants you to step out of this cloud of doubts, insecurities, worries, etc. and be confident in Him and yourself.
We must remember the truths that God tells us, not what the devil tells us.
TRUTH #1: YOU ARE CHOSEN
God chose you. He was going to did for you, not because you wanted Him to but because He always had a purpose. His death enables us to be good enough. We are no longer bond to the flesh.
You did not choose me, but I chose you and appointed you so that you might go and bear fruit—fruit that will last—and so that whatever you ask in my name the Father will give you. – John 15:16
TRUTH #2: YOU ARE ABLE
Life isn’t going to be easy. It’s hard. Life is not fair. We don’t always get what we want. But even when we are tempted, He is going to give strength to endure it. He gives us an escape to get out of this situation, so don’t beat yourself up.
No temptation has overtaken you except what is common to mankind. And God is faithful; he will not let you be tempted beyond what you can bear. But when you are tempted, he will also provide a way out so that you can endure it. – Corinthians 10:13
TRUTH #3: YOU ARE UNIQUE
He made you exactly to be YOU. He knew who you were before you were even born. Recognize that you are God’s workmanship. Be confident in your gifts that He has given you and remember that you are not like everyone else, so don’t compare yourself.
I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well. My frame was not hidden from you when I was made in the secret place, when I was woven together in the depths of the earth. -Psalm 139:14-15
TRUTH #4: YOU ARE LOVED
In case you didn’t already know this, HE LOVES YOU. HE DIED FOR YOU. It doesn’t make sense. “How can God love me?” We don’t deserve His love and mercy but He gives it to us anyway. We are His children. He loves us so much.
For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. – John 3:16
Remember these truths. Have confidence in our Lord and in yourself. Don’t beat yourself up too much. God’s got a plan and we have to trust and be faithful in Him. I hope you can be filled with some Godfidence and believe these truths.
