We Are What We Think

“As a man thinks… so is he.” -Proverbs 23:7
Have you ever had a hard time with the way you think about yourself? I know I have. Fat, ugly, stupid, never good enough – it seems I’ve “subconsciously” called myself everything. Of course, those things couldn’t be further from the truth!
In reality, most of us think things that are not true about ourselves, resulting in insecurities, fears, and doubts – doubts about how others see us, about our own lives, and about our futures in God. But do you know what this does? It reinforces the lies the enemy tries to make us believe. We can’t expect to ask other people to value our worth if we already think we are not worth anything. They will most likely come to that same conclusion as we have. Why? “As a man thinks, so is he.”
How have you thought about yourself lately? How have you thought of other people? More often than not, these two are related. If we tend to have a negative perspective about ourselves, then this will manifest itself in our lives. We are a mirror for the world around us. Weird, huh. Don’t believe it? Ask a jealous person how they feel on the inside. More than likely, (and I’ve been there), the majority of the time, they will feel as though they have no worth.
The truth of the matter is, we have so much to offer. We don’t need to continue to believe the lies about ourselves that we are without value. What do you have to offer? If you can’t think of anything, begin with the fact that you are first a child of God.
“Are not two sparrows sold for a penny? Yet not one of them will fall to the ground apart from the will of your Father… So don’t be afraid; you are worth more than many sparrows.” (Matthew 10:29-31)
Don’t let the enemy steal your destiny from you. Find your worth in Him today. You’ll feel much better seeing yourself through God’s eyes.Subscribe Now
