“Do not think of yourself more highly than you ought” – Romans 12:3
Many people have a poor opinion of themselves and their abilities. Such people lead unhappy and frustrated lives, because that which you believe of yourself is inevitably reflected in your way of life.
As a Christian disciple, sooner or later you must assess yourself in the light of God’s Holy Spirit. This could be a humbling experience or it could reveal a revelation, and you will begin to see who you can become through God’s strength, wisdom and inspiration.
Stop disparaging yourself and convincing yourself that you will never achieve anything worthwhile. You were created in the image of God and in His eyes you are invaluable. If you embrace this truth, the honest assessment of your life is about to begin.
Jesus Christ, I am endlessly grateful to have been redeemed by Your blood. Through You I can inherit eternal life. Amen.
