Realizing Your Worth
I know me, I am not ignorant of my weaknesses, faults or personality flaws. I know I'm not perfect and I certainly would not be my first choice for ministry or a representative of God's Kingdom. Though I know I'm tainted with many imperfections, I FULLY know how special I am to my Father God, my Bride Groom Jesus and the precious Holy Spirit.
So many miss out on the marvellous fullness of an intimate relationship with God because they don't feel they deserve it. Well, let's start by making one thing clear...YOU DON'T and neither do I! The price that was paid far exceeds our ability to earn the sacrifice or the love of the Creator of the Universe. You see, by nature, I'm a mess. I'm subject to the relentless attacks of the enemy just as many of you are and I've experienced pain and abuse which had left me damaged and broken. I also know that I MUST remain hidden in Christ in order to walk out my healing, deliverance, peace, joy and become more effective for His Kingdom.
How do you realize your worth and get past your limitations? You must not only know the Word of God and spend time in His presence, but you must remain there until you make a connection with His Spirit. Then stay a little longer, long enough to feel His arms wrap around you, hear His voice and experience His love. I could talk at my husband all day long, but until I stop and look deep into his eyes, share my heart with him, express my love and genuinely seek to know what pleases him, there's no intimacy or deep heart connection. Our relationship isn't all about me and my needs, but we are always mindful of each other.
When you begin to connect with God in this way, He will ravish your soul and captivate your heart! There will be no denying His love for YOU! It will fill your thoughts throughout your day and every decision you make will be made with His will in mind. You can't go wrong with that!! Don't remain on the outside looking in. He can't love you any more than He already does, but until you commit to go deeper it won't be experienced or realized.
Seek Him with ALL of your heart, He's waiting for intimate time with you in THE SECRET PLACE! It's where you'll find love, peace, fulfilment, realize your worth and receive the direction you need for your life!
Psalm 91:1 (NKJV) He who dwells in the secret place of the Most High Shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty.
Psalm 91:14-16 (MSG) “If you’ll hold on to me for dear life,” says God, “I’ll get you out of any trouble. I’ll give you the best of care if you’ll only get to know and trust me. Call me and I’ll answer, be at your side in bad times;I’ll rescue you, then throw you a party. I’ll give you a long life, give you a long drink of salvation!”
Ephesians 3:14-21 (MSG) My response is to get down on my knees before the Father, this magnificent Father who parcels out all heaven and earth. I ask Him to strengthen you by His Spirit—not a brute strength but a glorious inner strength—that Christ will live in you as you open the door and invite Him in. And I ask Him that with both feet planted firmly on love, you’ll be able to take in with all followers of Jesus the extravagant dimensions of Christ’s love. Reach out and experience the breadth! Test its length! Plumb the depths! Rise to the heights! Live full lives, full in the fullness of God. God can do anything, you know—far more than you could ever imagine or guess or request in your wildest dreams! He does it not by pushing us around but by working within us, His Spirit deeply and gently within us.
Lamentations 3:22-23 (NLT) The faithful love of the Lord never ends! His mercies never cease. Great is His faithfulness; His mercies begin afresh each morning.
