Genesis 1:26 Then God said, “Let us make human beings in our image, to be like us. They will reign over the fish in the sea, the birds in the sky, the livestock, all the wild animals on the earth, and the small animals that scurry along the ground.”
You are valuable.
From the moment God created human life, you were value. Before you breathed your first breath, you were valuable. Nothing you can do will ever change your value.
You are valued more than other created beings. The most valued of all because you were made in Their image. In Their likeness. To be like God. Not exactly, but close.
Psalm 8:5-6 Yet you made them only a little lower than God and crowned them with glory and honor. You gave them charge of everything you made, putting all things under their authority.
God valued you by granting you authority to rule over everything that was created. Your command over this world speaks of your value.
Satan hates that you are made in the image of God and wants nothing more than to steal the knowledge of your value. Armed with it, we are capable of anything.
So he will lie to you, like he did to Adam and Eve. He will tell you you are not valuable. He will go after your value relentlessly.
You rule in this life. You rule over everything created, including angels – especially fallen ones. Satan has no right to steal your value. So don’t let him.
God values you. Your life matters. It is important. Never forget.
Confession: I am valuable to God and created in His image.
Journal: Let Father speak to you about your value. Journal His words to you.
Action: Knowing you are valued and given authority, how will you act differently?
