It is so hard sometimes to truly believe in yourself. It is also hard for some to love and care for themselves the way God does. Others can tell you how much they believe in you, God can give you all the strength you need, but something is stopping you from believing in yourself..
I am guilty of this very thing. Having dreams, feeling purpose, wanting to do more, but not truly believing that I can. Doubting myself. Doubting my abilities. Doubting my potential. Doubting I have the ability to make a difference and doubting I have the strength to stand against my enemies. I know deep down I have what it takes but the enemy starts to attack and tries to stop me from believing I CAN.
At times we are all guilty of letting the enemy lie to us and tell us we are not good enough. That we don’t have what it takes. That we don’t have enough to offer. That we don’t deserve the promises of God and the lies just keep going and going. We allow this to go on for so long that eventually we start to believe the lies.
God loves us and He cares for us so much. We must do the same for ourselves. We need to know our worth and value and believe in ourselves no matter what comes our way. God has called us to be the change. To make a difference and to not be shaken while doing so. To stand strong and face the enemy without fear. He has called us to go higher, to spread our wings and follow the plan He has for us. But will we do it? Will we follow the plan He has for us? Or will we let the enemy, or our own selves get in the way?
I don’t want anything to get in the way of my calling or purpose. I will no longer allow the enemy to win wars against my mind or my heart. I will stand strong. Look myself in the mirror and remind myself that I am a child of God and I am good enough. Not because of me, but because He is good and His mercy is everlasting. I will remind myself that “I can do all things through Him”. And when the enemy starts to raise his ugly face, I will stand up, point my long skinny finger his direction and remind him just how GOOD I am. Just how strong I am because I have Jesus living inside of me. And that makes me good enough!
God has called us to stop believing the lies. He has called us to do big things. So I encourage you today, go do big things, stop believing the lies, and stand strong! Believe in yourself and care for you.
Deuteronomy 31:6 Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid or terrified because of them, for the LORD your God goes with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you.”
Isaiah 41:10 So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.
Ephesians 6:10 Finally, be strong in the LORD and in his mighty power.
Always believe in you. ♥
