Who do you think you are? That’s a good question. A better one is: Who does God think you are? God tells us a lot of things in the Bible. One, is that He values those He has created.
You are of such great worth that God became a human for you, died on a cross for you. That’s huge! He loves you that much! When I’m feeling low, of little value to anyone, I stop and remember that the God of Creation really does value me. I am of huge worth to the God of the Universe. Totally amazing!
God made me and promises me a bright future. He Himself, by His Holy Spirit, wants to be actively involved in my life – every day! And He is right now preparing a place for me – for when life on earth is done.
I place my faith in Him anew, often – especially when I’m feelin’ down. How about you? Have you placed your faith in Creator God, or are “you” all you have?
16-18 “This is how much God loved the world: He gave his Son, his one and only Son. And this is why: so that no one need be destroyed; by believing in him, anyone can have a whole and lasting life. God didn’t go to all the trouble of sending his Son merely to point an accusing finger, telling the world how bad it was. He came to help, to put the world right again. Anyone who trusts in him is acquitted; anyone who refuses to trust him has long since been under the death sentence without knowing it. And why? Because of that person’s failure to believe in the one-of-a-kind Son of God when introduced to him. – John 3:16-18 [The Message (MSG)]

“I know what I’m doing. I have it all planned out—plans to take care of you, not abandon you, plans to give you the future you hope for. – Jeremiah 29:11
“Do not let your heart be troubled; [a Or: you believe in God] believe in God, believe also in Me. 2 In My Father’s house are many dwelling places; if it were not so, I would have told you; for I go to prepare a place for you. 3 If I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and receive you to Myself, that where I am, there you may be also. 4 And you know the way where I am going.” 5 Thomas *said to Him, “Lord, we do not know where You are going, how do we know the way?” 6 Jesus *said to him, “I am the way, and the truth, and the life; no one comes to the Father but through Me. – John 14:verses 1-6
