The world may say bad things about you, you may even say or think bad things about yourself, but what does God say about you?….Now imagine God is standing right in front of you, telling you how BEAUTIFUL you are. He goes on to say that you are ENOUGH and you will indeed SUCCEED in life. I bet you’d probably believe EVERY word God has said to you. Of course you would because He’s God, creator and ruler of all; and you know everything He says is TRUE. You SEE God with your own eyes and HEAR Him clearly with your own ears; so you’ve got to believe Him! Well today I’ve come to tell you, God has already said all these wonderful things about you. He wasn’t literally standing before you face to face, but He said it to you through His Word.
Psalms 139:14 (New King James Version) reminds us that we FEARFULLY and WONDERFULLY made! Through this scripture God is telling us that he carefully and intentionally put us together and we are indeed beautiful! He made NO mistakes when He formed us! Then Romans 8:37 (NKJV) assures us that we are more than CONQUERORS in God, through Christ Jesus. Through this scripture God is plainly telling us that we have the VICTORY and are strong enough and good enough for any assignment, person, or trail that may come our way! Then God assures us through Joshua 1:8 (NKJV) that we will indeed have GOOD SUCCESS if we study His Word and do our best to follow it.
You see, God is literally talking to us through His Word but we’ve got to be willing to READ His Word DAILY to hear what He has to say. And while we may not be able to see Him in the flesh, His words of comfort and reassurance are SOLID and far better than the words of any earthly person. So again I say: the world may say bad things about you, you may even say or think bad things about yourself, but what does God say about you? And who’s report will you believe?….THINK ABOUT IT!
