You are worthy. Not because of your performance, your talents or skills, your emotional intelligence, your looks, your personality, your success or any other quality you can think of. You are worthy because you are God’s child, chosen and sacred. You don’t have to achieve something great to step into this worthiness. In fact, you don’t have to “do” anything.

God accepts you right now, where you are at exactly in this moment. His acceptance isn’t tied to something you've done before, or for something great you need to do in the future. It’s given simply because you are God’s and He loves you unconditionally and irrevocably.

To God, you are not some tiny little gold ring with a speck of a diamond shoved to the back of the jewelry case. No, you are the rare and precious necklace laden with large, rare gems kept in a plush velvet case stored in the safe. You are the remarkable Rembrandt painting, a true work of art in all your colors and intricacies. You are priceless, timeless and worth everything because God didn’t just spend millions of dollars for you. He actually gave up the life of His son for your ransom. That’s how precious, how worthy you are to Him.

When you choose to own that truth, when you step into the understanding of your immeasurable value to the Lord, it will change you. It will change the way you walk, the way you interact. Purpose enters your stride; joy in the knowing fills your heart and spills over to the people around you. You are more patient, more loving because you realize other people are precious too, even if they don’t know it yet.

Fear and doubt begin to melt away. You start to understand that even the hardships contain benefit because God will use everything to help you grow in your connection with Him, and to help you step more fully into being that work of art He created you to be.

You can set up healthy boundaries for yourself because you know God would never want you to be treated as less for you are far too valuable to Him! And as you begin to accept your worth, you become freer and freer to do great things because you are convinced God only wants great things for you, whatever He reveals those things to be.

So today, walk in the worth of the Lord. Walk in grace and peace. Never forget these words:

“God saved you by his grace when you believed. And you can’t take credit for this; it is a gift from God. Salvation is not a reward for the good things we have done, so none of us can boast about it. For we are God’s masterpiece. He has created us anew in Christ Jesus, so we can do the good things he planned for us long ago.” (Eph. 2:8-10, NLT)


My challenge for you this week is to simply believe that, yes – you are worthy! Set some time aside to really dwell on that thought, looking for the barriers that keep you from accepting it, and offering those barriers up to God so He can help you eradicate them. I would love to hear how it goes so please share!


Lord, your love defends and surrounds me at all times. In my humanness, it can be easy for me to take my eyes off of you and instead focus on my circumstances, my failures and my hurts. Remind me of who I am to you. Remind me that I am precious and loved in your sight, and that you use every piece of my life for good when I allow you in. Help me to keep me eyes on you, the author and defender of my faith, so I can see myself the way you see me--precious, valued, worthy, and loved. In Jesus' name, Amen.
