You Are Invaluable Person, Know Your Worth

God created each of us in the womb, fashioning us uniquely and individually, is nothing short of miraculous [Jeremiah 1:5]. Yet, as we go through life, we begin to doubt our God-given worth due to outside messages that try to undermine God’s purpose and participation in our lives.

“For You formed my inward parts; You covered me in my mother’s womb. I will praise You, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made; Marvelous are Your works, and that my soul knows very well.” [Psalm 139:13-14 NKJV].

The Bible that we are Kings and Priest in Him [Revelations 1:6]. Yes, God created us to be in a personal relationship with Him, which is the most incredible honor this side of heaven. We are worthy because He made us in His image—to fellowship with Him, follow His ways, and draw others to His saving grace.

GOD CREATED YOU WITH GREAT WORTH. The Biblical view of self-worth is encouraging for everyone who has struggled with self-esteem. In our search for value, we begin with the Scriptures that say, “Your eyes saw my unformed body; all the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be. How precious to me are your thoughts, God! How vast is the sum of them!” [Psalm 139:16-17].

God oversaw every stage of your development and ordained your days before you even took your first breath! [Jeremiah 1:5]. God spent time fashioning you into His likeness so that You could walk the earth as His child—a child representing their father. His thoughts over you are good. He wants the very best for you. You were created with great worth. The God of the universe does not waste time thinking about worthless things. Instead, He thinks about those He loves with the best and most pure intentions. He works in your life for His glory and your good.

NOTHING CAN STEAL YOUR WORTH IN CHRIST. Sin and shame are the main culprits in hindering our sense of worth. Moreover, indeed, we cannot ignore them. However, we cannot remain stuck in them, allowing self-condemnation to steal our sense of value in Christ. This huge distraction comes only from the enemy. God loved us while we were still sinners. In addition, He continues to love us to bring us to the saving knowledge of His Son. Do not let anyone make you believe you are worthless to the Lord. Your past and current mistakes are always redeemable [1 John 1:9].

God is faithful and just. He will forgive your sins and purify you. Nothing can steal your worth—not even sin and shame. Daily, we can enter His gates with thanksgiving and His courts with praise [Psalms 100:4]. We can go boldly to His throne to receive forgiveness. Nothing builds self-worth more than knowing we are walking in obedience to God. In addition, we want to be obedient because of what He has done for us.
