«But as many as received Him, to them He gave the right to become children of God, to whose who believe in His name: Who were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God» (John l : 1 2, 1 3)
WE devoted this entire month to the topic of self-esteem. For many people, feelings of inferiority area reality, but there are many sources of self-esteem that come to us from the Word. In it we are told about the continuous and assured blessings reserved for God’s children. This should be the best way to strengthen our self-esteem.
When you sit down, when you walk, when you think and when you speak, God keeps an eye on you. Before you speak your words, the Lord already knows them (Ps. 139:1-4).
God is love and He transmits this principle so you can put it into practice. %us, He can abide in you and you in Him 1 John 4:16).
This love is not temporary but is eternal and His mercy is everlasting (Jer. 31:3).
God grants you many good things: gifts, abilities, skills . . . all come from an absolutely trustworthy God, because with Him there is no change or shadow of variation (James 1:17).
When you are dealing with feelings of inferiority or incompetence because you don’t have the sufficient means to accomplish your mission, keep in mind that the Lord promises to satisfy all your needs (Matt.6:31-33).
God’s plans for you are of peace and not of evil, and, ultimately, He assures that He will grant you what you are hoping for (Jer. 29: 11). In fact, He has the power to do everything immeasurably above or beyond what we ask or imagine (Eph. 3:20).
When you accept God, He considers you «a special treasure» Exod. 19:5), and, as such, He will take care of you and will comfort you when you pass through hardship; His consolation is everlasting and He freely promises you hope (2 Thess. 2: 16, 17. Furthermore, His consolation will teach you how to encourage others. He is next to you when your heart is broken and your spirit is down; no matter how many affections you may have, God will free you from them all (2 Cor. 1:3, 4).And the day will come when there is no need for comfort, because God will wipe away every tear and He will make sure that there is no more death, nor crying, nor sorrow, nor pain (Rev. 21:3, 4).
All this is possible not because of man’s will (John1:13) but because of God’s direct action. Will you accept His offer? May God bless you so you may receive the privileges He wants to grant you.
