Failure and shame love to devalue you and shout about insignificance. Sneaking in under the disguise of you are too messed up, too young, too old, too fat, too skinny… too whatever, they come cloaked in all sorts of comparisons.
the lie: I am not worth that job/relationship/invitation/____, I am not worthy of love/healing/ministry____.
In it’s wake we shrink back, shut down and close off because deep under the fears of rejection or failure we really doubt our worth.
But you are worth the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ, and that means you are valued like Jesus, taken in as a child of the most High God. You are worth more than all the precious gems and resources of the earth. You, yes YOU are worth dying for!
Because I am God, your personal God, The Holy of Israel, your Savior. I paid a huge price for you: all of Egypt, with rich Cush and Seba thrown in! That’s how much you mean to me That’s how much I love you! I’d sell off the whole world to get you back, trade the creation just for you.
Isaiah 43: 3-4 MSG
