“Because as high as heaven is above the earth, that’s how large God’s faithful love is for those who honor him. As far as east is from west—that’s how far God has removed our sin from us.” (Psalm 103:11-12 CEB)
Wouldn’t it be nice to live as if we believed those words?
We read it, we know God loves us and forgives us, but the reality of it doesn’t weave its way into our DNA. For most of us, the eighteen inch journey from the mind to the heart is a road less traveled.
… What would happen if we let that scripture wrap around us and anchor in our heart, reminding us that His love is deeper and bigger than our insecurities?
… What if we believed we are who God says we are—precious, beautiful, accepted, powerful, capable, approved of, and a treasured possession?
… What would happen if we knew beyond a shadow of a doubt that we mattered greatly to our Creator?
Well, it would change everything.
And the Enemy knows it.
I know, I know – change is hard. And it takes real courage to un-believe the lies you’ve been tangled in for so long. But friend, isn’t it time?
I believe it is.
So let’s ask God to exchange the I-am-worthless lies of the Enemy… for the I-am-valuable truths of Jesus.
Because He’s the only One who can.
It’s time to change everything.
