when i struggle with 'not-enough' syndrome, i go to ephesians 1. its my spiritual go-to move, or my bag of tricks.
something to remind me when i'm tempted to believe the lies of Satan and of myself, and forget who God thinks i am.
i'm not going to quote the entire chapter, but you can read it here. instead i'm going to show you what God thinks of His children. not everything He thinks of them, but 11 verses i have held on to when i've had the not-good-enoughs.
here we go.
Ephesians 1:3-14 tells me that in Christ I am-- blessed, complete, chosen, holy, blameless, loved, predestined to Himself, adopted, daughter, treated kindly, given grace, redeemed, forgiven, grace-lavished, an inheritor, given a gift, in Him, sealed and secure with Him, God's own possession.
all of that, and that's only 11 verses in the entire Bible.
take that you plague of self-worth. my bag of tricks, my go-to move trumps any and all the blues you can hand me.
