We all have those thoughts from time to time. Even those of us who know who we are in Christ. Thoughts of rejection.
Feelings of not being good enough or worthy enough is something many people deal with. We live in a fallen world and many of our negative experiences leave a person with a feeling of brokenness.
We wonder why this may or may not have happened to us, why this person did or didn’t do something, and we think is it because I’m not worth it? Sometimes it’s just an attack of the enemy in an area of vulnerability for us. One of the things you have to realize is that sometimes no matter how hard you try or what you do, there will be people who don’t value you.
You have to come to terms with the fact that God values you and nothing anyone says or does changes that. You have to learn to set healthy boundaries in your heart, your mind, and in your life. Don’t allow others to speak negativity into your life. Reject immediately those thoughts and lies the enemy may try to whisper in your ear.
You are deeply loved and highly valued by the Creator of the universe who designed you in His image! He sent his Son, Jesus, to be crucified for the sole purpose of reconciling you to Himself. Jesus loved you enough to be the willing sacrifice so that you could live forever with Him.
And nothing can separate you from the extravagant love of God found in Christ Jesus. Focus your mind on His promises and make up your mind to believe that you are who He says you are today!
I have loved you with an everlasting love; I have drawn you with unfailing kindness. ~ Jeremiah 31:3 NIV
But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us. ~ Romans 5:8 NIV
So God created mankind in his own image, in the image of God he created them; male and female he created them. ~ Genesis 1:27 NIV
No power in the sky above or in the earth below—indeed, nothing in all creation will ever be able to separate us from the love of God that is revealed in Christ Jesus our Lord. ~ Romans 8:39 NLT
