Do you ever think to yourself, “I’m just not good enough!”
At parenting. At marriage. At relationships. Even your relationship with God.
Sometimes the tendency to put so much emphasis on not feeling good enough becomes so prevalent in your hearts and minds that you begin to believe it and fear takes root.
Fear can keep you from accomplishing great things in your life. It can hold you captive if you allow it. We cannot give in to fear. It only hinders our potential and growth process, and the plans that God has for our lives.
Allowing fear to dominate our thinking process can keep you from
If you are not careful and if you allow these unwanted feelings to become stagnant in your thoughts and minds they can and will mostly certainly hinder the child of God from fulfilling the purposes God has destined for them.
While at the same time unknowingly preventing the child of God from using the gifts that God has so graciously bestowed upon each of His children, which was intended to be used for His Glory.
Taking authority and praying over your thinking is key to not allowing such thoughts to take root.
You must expel the unwanted weeds that try to grow unapologetically in your minds.
But sometimes you will fail. And fail miserably.
We all do and will at times.
Thankfully, God understands.
I for one am so grateful that He does.
He knows the desires of our hearts.
He knows if and when your intentions are genuinely pure or filled with ulterior motives.
Then there are times when you look around and allow the comparison game to take hold.
Weighing up the similarities or collation of others lives, achievements and accomplishments.
While allowing the dissimilarities to inflame and fester which will bitterly poison your hearts and souls.
Sometimes our fragile, but also resilient souls can become sick with such jealousy and envy.
You began to ask yourselves unwarranted questions like:
Why does everyone else seem to have a picture perfect life, everyone except for myself?
Why does everyone else seem to accomplish so many more goals in life than I ever could?
Why can’t I be as smart or as intelligent as she is or as he is.
And so on and so on …
You can begin to falsely wonder when and if you will ever emerge from the cocoon you feel enclosed in.
Desperately wanting to grow and evolve into that which God had intended of you when He knit you together in my Mother’s womb.
Pause for a moment!
You must realize that none of this is true.
These are all the deceitful lies of the enemy.
Lies that are intended to make the child of God feel alone, forgotten, and unworthy.
You have to move past the illusion that you are not …
Good enough, Talented enough, Smart enough, Accomplished enough
And the list goes on …
Just remember what God says in His Word …
He came to this dark world and became flesh.
“And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us,
(and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,)
full of grace and truth.” - John 1:14 KJV
On that fateful day on a hill called Calvary He hung on a cross to prove His love.
“But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.” - Romans 5:8 KJV
“He reached out His hand for me whispering my beloved I have redeemed thee.“
The Depth of God’s Love for You is Immeasurable.
Ephesians 3:18-19 KJV says: “May be able to comprehend with all the saints what is the width and length and depth and height — to know the love of Christ which passes knowledge; that you may be filled with all the fullness of God.”
Now, Pause for just a moment!
Re-read that scripture and be reminded of His Love.
The great depth of His Love.
In stillness, you’ll hear.
Jesus softly whispers.
You are Enough. You are Worthy. You are Loved. You are Cherished. You are Valued. You are Forgiven.. You are Redeemed.
When you know who you are in Christ Jesus you realize how essential that knowledge is to fulfilling your divine calling and purpose.
The more you understand who you are in Christ Jesus and who you were created to be, the more power you will have over the deceitful lies that try to keep you from fulfilling your divine purpose.
Whenever you start to feel unworthy you can be gratefully reminded of these beautiful truths.
The truth that you were created with great value.
The truth that you were created with a higher divine purpose and calling.
The truth that your worth comes from the heart of God himself and not from man.
The truth that you can be rest assured that wherever this journey called life may lead you God will never leave or forsake you.
The truth that God has faithfully promised that with Him you will never walk alone.
The truth that God is right beside you every step of the way.
The truth that God cares for you.
The truth that you can trust Him.
The truth that you were meant for so much more than the lies that keep telling you that you are not enough.
The real truth is…
In God’s Eyes You Are More Than Enough!
It’s up to you to either continue believing the lies or to trust and believe on God and His promises, Word, and truth.
It’s your choice.
“For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works,
which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them.” - Ephesians 2:10
I praise you, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made.
Wonderful are your works; my soul knows it very well. – Psalm 139:14
Have I not commanded you? Be strong and of good courage;
do not be afraid, nor be dismayed,
for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go. – Joshua 1:9
