These are just a few of many labels that people are given. Labels the world gives them, labels people give them, and sadly…labels that they often give themselves.
I’m sure one point in life we’ve all felt inadequate, unwanted, or just not good enough.
Maybe someone made a remark about you that made you feel like less than nothing, maybe you keep on trying but always fail, or maybe your enemy, Satan, is just doing a good job of deceiving you into believing you are something you are not.
I have news for you. You’re not allowed to label yourself.
Who labels the pepsi bottle that you drink? The person who created pepsi.
Who labels the shoes you just bought? The person who created those shoes.
I can peel off that pepsi or shoe label but the label I may give it will never replace its original label created by its creator. I may not like the ingredients in pepsi, I may not like the style of shoes but my opinion of either will not change anything about them.
If people can’t label you, if the world can’t label you, if YOU can’t label you then who can?
Your creator. God.
He created you with a purpose.
He knows your worth.
He knows your “ingredients”.
He alone is able to label you for who you really are. And last time I checked “dumb”, “not wanted”, or “not good enough” are not part of any of His labels.
You want to know God’s definition of you? Look into His Word and you’ll find it there in black and white.
Just in case you’ve forgotten God’s label of you here are a few bible verses to help you remember:
– You are PRECIOUS – Isaiah 43:4
– You are ONE OF A KIND – Psalm 139:14
– You are FAVORED – Psalm 5:12
– You are BLESSED – Deuteronomy 28:1-14
– You are LOVED- John 3:16
This is God’s label of you. Don’t let anyone else (including yourself) label you otherwise.
Don’t allow anyone to tell you that you are worthless when you are worth more than gold – (1 Peter 1:18) – you were worth the precious blood of Jesus.
Don’t allow anyone to tell you that you are unwanted when Jesus came down from heaven because He wanted a relationship with you. Because He wants nothing more than for you to spend eternity with Him.
Don’t allow anyone to tell you that you are not good enough when your Creator made you with His own hands just the way He wanted to. You are good enough to Him. You don’t need to prover your worth to anyone else.
You know why my blog site is titled “Daughter by Design“? Because it’s a daily reminder to me of whose daughter I am.
I am a daughter designed by the hands of God.
Precious and beautiful in His sight.
It reminds me that no matter what worth I have or don’t have in this world, I will always find my worth in one man alone: Jesus.
And that no matter how others see me He will always see me as His precious daughter.
And He sees you exactly the same.
You have an Almighty God who is by your side, ready to remind you of this every single day.
Today, don’t forget whose you are. Don’t forget how precious you are. Don’t allow the world to give you labels that are not true. Be blessed! – Anna… ♥
