Isn’t it crazy that we can receive a dozen compliments…and yet one negative or critical comment can totally derail us??!! Sometimes it’s not anyone else’s voice that causes us to shut down. It’s our own voice that leaves us diminished and feeling inadequate.
We need to remind ourselves that we are made in the image of God. (Genesis 1:27) That’s right. You and I bear the image of God within us! The enemy of our soul wants to discredit God’s work in us. Don’t let him do it! To everything God created He said, ‘It is good’. And when He formed man and then breathed life into him, God said, ‘It is very good.’
What we see as weakness in ourselves, God sees as strength. That’s the very point that we must lean in to receive His strength and because of Him we ARE enough. The very places in us that are lacking are exactly where the power of Christ can shine brightest. 2 Corinthians 12:9 in The Living Bible says “Each time he said, ‘I am with you; that is all you need. My power shows up best in weak people.” Now I am glad to boast about how weak I am; I am glad to be a living demonstration of Christ’s power, instead of showing off my own power and abilities.”
What does God say about you? You are enough.
