God of Pennies

This life can beat you down. Each day you have a choice, get out of bed….or stay in bed. Some choose to stay in bed because they have the false belief that they’re not good enough to…(fill in the blank).
In fact, some feel as their lives are worthless. But that is simply the enemy (Satan) trying to confuse you.
During the early 2000’s property values were on the rise, people would get excited to see how much their homes were worth.
However, in 2008 and the few years afterwards, that value plummeted. Nobody could “redeem“ (exchange something for payment) a home because it was not “worth” what was owed on it. Everything in the home was the same….why the difference in value? The value was calculated on the rules of man, demand and market condition.
But you, Christian, your value does not come from what others think of you, or even what you think of you. It comes from God Himself.
He thought you so worthy and valuable, that he left his throne in heaven just to show you how much you mean to Him. He paid what YOU owed and in so doing, showed you what you are worth. You are priceless. Even though you might feel like you are only worth pennies, My God is a God of Pennies.
For you know that you were redeemed from your empty way of life inherited from the fathers, not with perishable things like silver or gold, but with the precious blood of Christ, like that of a lamb without defect or blemish. 1 Peter 1:18-19
Prayer: Lord, Please help me to start today by finding my worth not in what others think of me, but in you alone. AMEN
