Know Your Worth

But let it be the hidden man of the heart, in that which is not corruptible, even the ornament of a meek and quiet
spirit, which is in the sight of God of great price. 1 Peter 3:4

Rejection is at the root of so many of our relational problems. We’ve all been rejected at one time or another. As time
goes on and the world moves farther and farther away from God, the inclination of hurting human beings to hurt other human beings increases rapidly. Nevertheless, Jesus came so that we would know our true worth.

Again and again, harsh words destroy and irreparable rifts occur in once strong relationships. Things seem so bad, that no one can look at another individual cross-eyed without some sort of confrontation ensuing.

Sometimes, what we see as rejection is really an attempt for the other person to assert their individuality. At other times, we aren’t imagining things. People do set out to deliberately control their own reality by creating an atmosphere where we feel devalued and inferior.

The point is, whether we’re purposely rejected or we’re imagining things, we must strive to know our own value. People will continually choose others over us. Choice is a God-given right, which means that sometimes we will come in a distant second…or third. However, we can’t allow someone’s preference to dictate the way we feel about ourselves.

God created you for greatness and you are fearfully and wonderfully made. The Lord desires that His people stand up against those the devil will use to categorize us and lessen our importance. In order to conquer the enemy, we must know our worth.
