You're worth more than a million canaries.

 

 

 

Devotional done by Ess-Jee from standforyourmarriage.org

 

 

 

 

Luke 12 verses 6 and 7: (The Message) What's the price of two or three pet canaries? Some loose change, right? But God never overlooks a single one. And he pays even greater attention to you, down to the last details - even numbering the hairs on your head! So don't be intimidated by all this bully talk. You're worth more than a million canaries.

 

 

 

Have you ever felt that you’re worth nothing in this world? Have you ever felt that because you don’t have a degree behind you or a lot of talent that you’re useless? Maybe you don’t even have a big house or a lot of money, measuring yourself to the world’s standards. You are not thin enough; maybe you don’t have any hair left or your husband or wife left you. We can go on and on and on. Nowadays, living in this material world we try to put worth in ourselves by earning a lot of money or being a workaholic just to feel that we are worth something. In countries like India people are born in classes, if your family are from the low class and you got born from one of them, then this baby will be classed as low class for the rest of his or her life, they are worth nothing in the eyes of the upper class people.

 

The upper class people in India stay upper class, they are the richest in the country and the low class are the poorest.

 

Many of us judge people by their looks or appearances, we judge people by their education, and we judge people by which car they drive. The enemy pounds on this, he uses all this feeble standards we set for ourselves and when we don’t get there or loose what we felt made us worth anything, we feel useless and numb. Most people if they loose everything they thought made them what they are; they commit suicide because the enemy lies to them telling them they are worth nothing. For example your too fat, your dumb , you will never achieve anything, you couldn’t even let your marriage work out, you’re a failure, don’t even try to get out of this pit its better to take your life its worth nothing anyway.

 

 

Dear reader that is all lies; let’s see what do God thinks of you:

 

 

 

Psalm 8:4 - 9

 

4 what is man that you are mindful of him, the son of man that you care for him?  5 You made him a little lower than the Godly being [c]
       and crowned him with glory and honor.  6 You made him ruler over the works of your hands;  you put everything under his feet: 7 all flocks and herds,
       and the beasts of the field,   8 the birds of the air,   and the fish of the sea,  all that swim the paths of the seas.  9 O LORD, our Lord,  how majestic is your   name in all the earth!

WOW! You are created in Gods own Image, He made you a bit lower that Himself. You are so precious to Him, that He sends His only son to die for you. He loves you so much that He only wants the best for you. You are more worth to Him than you can ever imagine. He loves you sister or brother, He will do anything for you. So in Gods eyes you are perfect just as you are. He knows every hair on your head, He knew you from birth. He made you perfect in His eyes. No matter what the world standards may say to you or what the enemy tries to feed into your mind, just know your real identity is in Christ, and no one in this world can take that away from you.

Let’s take a look what is your real CV:

Ephesians 1: 3 - 14

1:3 Blessed5 is6 the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed7 us with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly realms in Christ. 1:4 For8 he chose us in Christ9 before the foundation of the world that we may be holy and unblemished10 in his sight11 in love.12 1:5 He did this by predestining13 us to adoption as his14 sons15 through Jesus Christ, according to the pleasure16 of his will – 1:6 to the praise of the glory of his grace17 that he has freely bestowed on us in his dearly loved Son.18 1:7 In him19 we have redemption through his blood,20 the forgiveness of our trespasses, according to the riches of his grace 1:8 that he lavished on us in all wisdom and insight. 1:9 He did this when he revealed21 to us the secret22 of his will, according to his good pleasure that he set forth23 in Christ,24 1:10 toward the administration of the fullness of the times, to head up25 all things in Christ – the things in heaven26 and the

 things on earth.27 1:11 In Christ28 we too have been claimed as God’s own possession,29 since we werepredestined according to the one purpose of him who accomplishes all things according to the

 counsel of his will 1:12 so that we, who were the first to set our hope30 on Christ,31 would be to the praise of his glory. 1:13 And when32 you heard the word of truth (the gospel of your salvation) – when you believed in Christ33 – you were marked with the seal34 of the promised Holy Spirit,35 1:14 who is the down payment36 of our inheritance, until the redemption of God’s own possession,37 to the praise of

 his glory.

Ephesians 1 is your real identity, not what people may say or think of you, not how much money you make, but by the fact that you are a son or daughter of God, a prince or princess of God, blessed with all spiritual blessings from heaven in Christ Jesus. Jesus came to earth to give me and you a life of abundance; He came to earth because He thought that you are worth more than the biggest diamond on this earth. So my dear reader if God of the universe gave His only son to die for all our sins, then we most be worth something?

STOP listening to the lies of the devil, stop trying to be what the world says you must be, start seeing you’re self through the eyes of Jesus; perfect, beautiful, worth more than anything this world can offer. Jesus is the only qualification you need, Jesus is the only beauty treatment you need, Jesus IS….YOUR IDENTITY, YOUR CV, You are justified through Him, nothing can take Him away from you , He will always be there for you , no matter what. Give your life to Him give all your past hurts and rejections to Him , Give your broken heart and your broken faith, He can and will mend every part of you, I’m a living proof of that ,what the Lord has done for me He will and shall do for you. Stand strong if your waiting for the restoration of your marriage it will happen, all you have to do is to trust in God and when the lies come and the pressure of the world, turn your eyes to heavens mirror and see who you really ARE.
