Self-esteem: A feeling of pride in yourself.
Nothing beats a great compliment. When insecurities slip in after you’ve spent hours on your hair or trying to find the perfect outfit the words of someone else can make or break your spirit. There is a yearning inside of every woman… a desire to be loved and to feel significant. There is a need for validation. Even if we choose to not admit it… we love attention. We love being told that we’re beautiful, that we’re loved, and that we’re special.
There is nothing wrong with that. It’s actually quite normal. The problem is that we seek this validation from man instead of the only being that can truly give us the validation we desire – God. Woman, I’m here to tell you today, that if anyone diminishes your worth, remember you are God’s creation and to Him you are beautiful!
“Genesis 1:1 Trust this: God created the heavens and the earth- all you see and don’t see.
Genesis 1:31 God looked on everything He had made; it was good, so very good!” MESSAGE
God’s love should be the foundation for your self-esteem.
Not only did God choose to create the world, He also chose to create YOU. Why? Simply put, God is love. And contrary to popular belief love is best expressed through actions, not words and feelings; and that action is directed toward the object of its love. God created you as an expression of love.
How amazing of a feeling it is to be a part of God’s creation. The creation that He was pleased with. The creation that He saw was very good. If ever there is a time that your self-esteem is low, and your confidence isn’t where it should be, remember this; you are valuable to God!
