Sometimes we make the mistake of looking at others and thinking that they are examples of what we should look like, or how we should behave. Comparison is our worst enemy. As long as we let the world determine whether we are good enough, we will forever be in chains. We let negative thoughts enter into our minds such as “I’m not smart enough”, “I’m not pretty enough”, “my body does not look right”, or “I’m just not enough!” These lies steal our confidence and rob us of our joy. These negative thoughts can keep us bound in chains, unable to move forward into our destiny. The devil is a liar. Silence his lies!
Thank God for Jesus who was perfect in every way, shape, and form. He suffered and died for our sins, and in doing so He set us free! Through Christ, we are made perfect in the eyes of God! God loves us unconditionally. The world loves us conditionally. How we look, labels and titles, how much money or education we possess means nothing to God. He does not look on the outside or what we do or do not have. He looks deep in our hearts and connects with our souls. In God’s eyes we are beautiful and each of us are fearfully and wonderfully made. We are precious in God’s eyes. We must see ourselves as God sees us. When we live our lives with His truths, we have the confidence, assurance, and peace that we are good enough.
Only God has the power to set us free. Studying God’s Word and submitting to His will reveals the truth and uncovers the devil’s lies. The truth about who we are and whose we are will free us from the chains. Silence the lies by accepting God and His grace, and no longer let past failures define or confine us. Silence the lies by knowing that no matter who the world thinks we are, God says we are beautiful and each of us is valuable to Him. That is enough! We are enough! I encourage you to believe in yourself and know you can do anything through God who strengthens you. God chooses what the world calls ordinary people to do extraordinary work. That is how He gets His glory! He is looking for believers who will be obedient regardless of how they feel, their fears, or their past failures. Whenever you start to believe the lies of satan, think about how God loved you so much he gave His only son. Jesus thought we were worth dying for! Am I good enough? You better believe it; I am better than good. And so are you! Silence the lies and watch those chains break! Love and Blessings…
And Jesus said to them, “You belong to your father, the devil, and you want to carry out your father’s desires. He was a murderer from the beginning, not holding to the truth, for there is no truth in him. When he lies, he speaks his native language, for he is a liar and the father of lies.” John 8:44
