As humans we daily struggle with so many lies that opposes the truth of who we are in Christ. If we hear ten positive things about ourselves and someone says one offensive to us, it’s beyond imagination that at the end of the day – it’s that one negative thing that ends up troubling us more than the ten positive things that was said to us.
Lies keep us in bondage, and that’s exactly what our enemy wants for us.
If you spend all your time watching celebrities pictures in magazines, or on TV, or your friends on Social Media – chances are …. you will end up hating yourself.
Believing lies about yourself can make you starve yourself , or do other self destructive acts. It can also lead to low self esteem as you struggle to compete with celebrities who don’t even look like the magazines, or the shows you watch, or your friends Facebook pictures that you’re in awe of…
The truth is that everyone of us was uniquely created. Comparison is a thief of happiness. So if you want to be happy – it’s time to be happy just loving you.
Here’s the breaking news. None of us can successfully change our image and be happy about it.
God is the one who created our INNERMOST parts. He carefully and strategically KNITTED us together while we were still in our mother’s womb. You and I, and all of Hollywood plastic surgeons cannot change that fact. It all happened in the womb. Cosmetic surgery cannot change those facts.
It will be really amazing if everyone of us decides to give our Creator thanks for doing an awesome job in setting us apart from animals and all other creatures.
This just blew my mind away when I read in the Bible that — my bones were NOT hidden from God when He was putting me together in a SECRET place. His eyes saw my embryo, and God wrote on His scroll every day while I was being formed and before anything had yet happened.
My birth was signed, sealed and delivered. And that’s a FACT.
So ladies and gentlemen – we were handmade by the ONLY awesome Creator and there’s no lie in hell that can change that.
I’m all of 5’2″ and as my metabolism slows down by nature, I have gained some pounds since birth and when I cross my three scores and ten – by God’s design —I will start losing those pounds and return back to dust. So let’s all relax and enjoy God’s wonderful creation when we look at ourselves in the mirror.
You are fearfully and wonderfully made.
Please stop starving yourself and competing with others. Don’t lose sleep over what’s happening in the Jones’s pool. We were all made with a careful, and well thought out plan by the Master Himself. So let’s destroy all ungodly lies and start enjoying life before it’s over.
If not now – then when.
Read Psalms 139:13-16 CEB
