Many believers carry around a nagging sense of worthlessness. I think the enemy of our souls must relish and fuel such thoughts. In contrast, the Scripture reveals the great value God places upon us: we were on His mind in eternity past; from the point of creation, He has lavished upon His extravagant love, making us the object of His affection and attention. His truth counteracts the lies that so easily steal our joy. –Nancy Leigh DeMoss
God has lavished on me His extravagant love, making me the object of His affection and attention. The enemy of our souls is always prowling about like a roaring lion seeking whom he may devour. (1 Peter 5:8)
In order to believe the great truths of God’s Word I need to know what He has said. I need to be vigilant and self-controlled. On our guard against the schemes and power of the evil one.
For who has known the mind of the Lord, that He will instruct Him? But we have the mind of Christ. 1 Corinthians 2:16O satisfy us in the morning with Your loving-kindness, that we may sing for joy and be glad all our days. Psalm 91:14
Will you choose to believe what you (or others) feel about yourself or what God says about you? N L DeMoss
