With all the noise around us it can be difficult to see and hear clearly God’s calling and purpose for our lives. The world’s idea of beauty, wealth, and influence is in direct opposition to the Biblical messages God has given to His children.
I’m sure you have heard or seen messages from secular T.V. shows and songs that communicate that only the beautiful and rich are successful or that Hollywood determines who has “IT”… whatever “IT” is. If you have heard that you must have celebrity and a hot body that get the attention, love and respect of people, you have been misled!
Don’t buy the lies, the truth is God has a plan and a purpose for your life. Jeremiah 29:11, “For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.”
Your source of esteem and worth does not come from man (i.e. celebrities, peers, rap lyrics) but from God.
Genesis 1:27 says, “In the image of God he created them; male and female he created them.” Your beauty, your worth, and your influence is given to you by God. Don’t allow negative and worldly messages about your beauty and worth to depress you!
One way to get to know who you really are is to read the Bible, which is the word of God. Just as you make sure to talk to you BFF daily or as much as you can, you do so with God also. Talk to God through prayer and get to know Him!
Musician and King, David, understood his value in God’s eyes he expressed his understanding in Psalms 139:13-14 which says, “For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother’s womb. 14 I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well.”
You too, were known as you were knit together in your mother’s womb. He created YOU with a Master Plan in mind and in HIS image, “fearfully and wonderfully made. God knows every detail about you. He knows and plans your past, present, and future. You indeed are wonderful.
So what do you need to do now?
· Honor God with your life.
· Use your mind to learn more about Him and from there you will learn more about who you are.
· Get to know His promises, first and foremost, the promise of eternal life that can be found through faith in Jesus Christ alone.
· Read your Bible and pray so that you can find out what your mission is while here on earth.
Girl you are wonderful!
