Don’t allow anything to make you feel inferior. Don’t allow anything but Me to define your worth!
How much am I worth? What price can you place on My goodness, mercy, grace, and love? Can something I created, such as silver and gold, measure My perfection? Well child, you and I are One. My value has become your value.
The idea that you are less valuable than Me is a product of the fall. It was then that the perception that you and I are separate was conceived.
However, I’d like you to embrace a better idea. I’d like you to embrace the gospel. You live and move and have your being in Me! Separation is just an illusion propagated by the enemy so that you see yourself as someone you’re not. He knows that if you perceive yourself as separate, you’ll live as though you are.
Just like he tempted Eve to believe she was less than what I had created her to be, so he tempts you.
He tempts you to believe that your righteousness is based on you. He tempts you to believe that you have to do something to be who you already are. You were recreated in Christ. All that I am is what defines you now – My holiness, My perfection, the fruit of My Spirit has become your holiness, your perfection, your fruit.
Now it the time to go on the offensive. Don’t listen to the enemy’s lies. Talk back!
Recognize feelings of unworthiness, inadequacy, hopelessness, powerlessness, and fear for what they are – lies! Then, attack them with the truth. Step into Christ and enjoy your union with Me! Use the sword of the Spirit. Speak My words over yourself. Remember, words are powerful. Death and life are in the power of your tongue. The enemy can’t steal your peace without your permission.
Your feelings will respond to your words. The atmosphere will shift. The enemy will flee.
Say, “I am holy. I am forgiven. I am perfect. I am one with the King of Kings!” Say, “I am righteous. I am complete. I am joyful. I am one with the King of Kings!” Say, “I am healed. I am prosperous. I am blessed. I am one with the King of Kings!”
Talk back to the enemy, child. Don’t let him get the last word. Speak the truth. Go on the offensive!
