We all need daily reminders of our self-worth and value in Christ. The words of others, and sometimes our own negative thinking towards ourselves plants seeds of doubt in our minds about who we are in Christ.
Do you sometimes find yourself forgetting your worth and value? Do you sometimes allow the lies of the enemy to condemn you? Let’s silence the lies around us that try to convince us that we aren’t good enough–in this post we’ll discuss 12 powerful Scriptures that remind us of our true worth and value in Christ!
Discovering our Worth and Value in Christ
A long time ago in the sixth grade, I went to an environmental school on a nature preserve in our city. My classmates and I enjoyed frequent nature hikes, explored nearby streams, and even ran our own chicken coop (with the close supervision of our teacher, of course).
The forest was truly our classroom.
Occasionally on warm days, our teacher would take us to the woods and give us time with our journals and pencils to find our “magic spot”–a small corner of the forest not too far from our school building where we could write, sketch, and just enjoy the outdoors.
I remember sitting many times at my “magic spot”, relishing in the sweet presence of God. I admired the nearby stream. I watched the birds fly overhead, and noticed the pretty pink and white flowers on the forest floor around me.
Even at such a young age, I was aware of the splendor of God.
When I think back on those times, I am reminded of the words of Jesus…
When I consider the vast beauty of God’s creation and behold the splendor of his majesty, when I feel a warm breeze and watch a sea of color surround me, I am reminded of one simple truth:
We are worth more…
We as God’s daughters are worth more than a thousand wild flowers. We are worth more lovely than the brightest lily.
More beautiful than a bouquet of roses.
Think about king Solomon and all his splendor.
The precious stones and jewels–royal robes of the finest quality. And yet not even Solomon in all his kingly glory was adorned with beauty like a field of flowers. His splendor was nothing compared to the smallest petal of an iris, or the bright splash of a sunflower.
And we are worth more…
If God clothes the grassy fields with a rainbow of splendor, (which blooms one day and then shrivels in the sun), how much more are we, as His precious daughters, clothed with His spiritual splendor and strength?
We are clothed in his beauty that will never wilt.
We are clothed in his strength that will never fail.
We are clothed in his power that will never diminish.
We are clothed with Christ himself (Romans 13:14).
That means we are forever wrapped in his loving arms of grace. He will never leave us naked or shivering with shame. He clothes us with worth, value and honor.
