Do you know just how precious you are? Do you know how valuable you are? If you had to give a dollar amount to how much you are worth, could you do it? I started off asking these questions because so many people do not know the answer. Why is that? If you don’t know your own worth and value, then don’t expect someone else to calculate it for you. I am here today to tell you that you should always know your worth. The key to truly living life to the fullest is coming into the knowledge of understanding how valuable you are. Think for a moment about this, if you were a prince or princess (such as Prince Harry or his mom Princess Diana). How would the way you live your life be different? You would probably walk around with your head a little bit higher. You would have a bit more self-confidence. And I’m sure there are certain things you wouldn’t stand for or allow to happen to you or around you. Now, what if I told you that you are royalty. As a child of the most High God, you are a royal priesthood because your Heavenly Father is the King of Kings. Your worth comes from God, so to answer the questions I started off with would mean that you are priceless. That’s right, priceless. There is no amount of money or things that could ever be sufficient to describe your value. And to top that off, no matter what has happened in your past or present and whatever happens in your future, you will never lose your value. Isn’t that amazing. God is not like man that He should lie, so if He said it in His word than that settles it. No going back. Now that you have this piece of inside information, I want you to act like it.
Surround yourself with people who know your worth. I remember something my pastor once said that really touched on a situation I had been dealing with. She said we should be around people who are concerned with our soul. It seems like that is common sense and something I can say I already knew but when she said it, it’s like a light bulb just went off in my head. If the people who are around you are not concerned about you mind, body and spirit then you don’t want to be connected to them. Sometimes it can be hard to tell who these people are. Pray and ask God to help you discern who is for you all the way around, and He will reveal those individuals. If you’re anything like me, it really doesn’t take being around a lot of people to make me happy. I enjoy it more when there are only a few real folks around me who can appreciate me for exactly who I am.
Please let this article serve as a reminder. A lot of times we say we know our worth and “act” strong, then as soon as the enemy sends someone to tear us down we allow them to do just that. When you know your worth, no one can come along and try to make you feel worthless. Remember, your value does not decrease based on someone else’s inability to see your worth. Your worth is determined by God. He has the final say and He has already declared in His word who you are to Him and that’s really all that matters. #iDeclare #knowyourworth
Father God, in the name of Jesus. I thank you for teaching me who I am according to Your word. Please God help me to know my worth. I decree and declare that I am a royal priesthood. I am royalty and I will operate as such every day of my life. I will not allow the enemy to come and make me forget or doubt who I am in Christ Jesus. Thank you Jesus for connecting me with people who are concerned about me as a whole, mind body and spirit. Please help me to discern who is not, so I can remove them from my life. In Jesus name, Amen.
