Meditate on Scripture Series: Feeling Unworthy

MOS

At one point in our lives we’ve suffered from the “not good enough” syndrome. The enemy wants us to think that we aren’t [blank] enough. He wants us to feel unhappy with who we are.

Then we begin to search for that “something” that will make us happy, satisfy our innermost needs, or help us feel better about ourselves. For example, I grew up not feeling pretty enough so I started to spend money on products and services marketed to make us look or feel “beautiful”. I believed the lies of the enemy.

We no longer have to feel unworthy. Scripture tells us that we are God’s masterpieces.  

“For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them.” Ephesians 2:10

Meditate on Scripture Series: Fear

We all have, at least, one fear. While the type of fear is different, a fear is still a fear.

Up until a few years ago, I had a fear of public speaking. During my college years, I did it because I had to, but I hated it. I would sweat profusely, my face red as a tomato, my voice would crack or sound “shaky”, and I’d find every excuse not to speak publicly. Can you relate? Well, just as the woman on Daystar (read here), I took control and did something about it.

I meditated on scripture, prayed and God delivered me from this fear.

Since God broke the chain that was holding me back, I’ve preached at church, I sing a cappella freely (for God’s honor and glory) and I can give a presentation at work. Many years ago, that would not have been possible. Instead of jumping at the opportunity, I would make excuses. Sound familiar?

Meditate on Scripture Series

On this particular day, I was watching Daystar (Christian network), and a woman came on- screen giving her testimony. She gave details on some of her struggles and what she did about it.

This woman decided to take control of her situation– she prayed and meditated on scripture. She sought scriptures related to her problem, wrote them down and then she read and meditated on these daily. She prayed and asked God to break her chains (whatever is stopping you from moving forward) and He did.

(I followed her example. I prayed, meditated and my chains broke too. To God be the glory!)

This is where the idea for the “meditate on scripture series” was born. I created this series to help us understand the importance and the power that there is in the Word of God.

I will choose topics and create posts related to those.  Scripture will help us understand that our problem is nothing in comparison to what God can do for us. It will help us see ourselves as God sees us.

I invite you to join me on this journey. May this be a time for healing and spiritual growth.

This book of the law shall not depart out of thy mouth; but thou shalt meditate therein day and night, that thou mayest observe to do according to all that is written therein: for then thou shalt make thy way prosperous, and then thou shalt have good success.” Joshua 1:8

 

Many things happen when we meditate on the Word.

Here are a few of the things I have experienced:

  1. He speaks to us personally
  2. We understand His Word
  3. Chains break and we heal
  4. We receive direction and wisdom
  5. The Word gives us hope
  6. We experience spiritual growth
