Verse of the Day

I Am So Much More....

I recently started the "You're Beautiful" devotional from Illustrated Faith and God used the first 2 days to speak some truth to my heart! It focused on Genesis 3:11 where God asks Adam who told them they were naked?

Let me back up - this was part of the conversation that God was having with Adam & Eve after they chose to listen to Satan and eat of the fruit from the tree God told them to leave alone! But you see what has happened, not only did Satan lie to them about the tree being okay to eat from, he continues to feed them lies by making them feel ashamed because they were naked.  God is asking them, "Who told you were naked?" God didn't tell them.  So it had to be Satan!

Satan feeds us all kind of garbage:

  • You're fat
  • You're ugly
  • You're no good
  • No one likes you
  • You can't do that
  • You're stupid
  • That was your fault
  • You are so unworthy
  • There is no way God will love you now....
And the lies just keep coming! And the more we listen to these lies, the more insecure we become and the more we doubt ourselves!

But listen to this --- we are none of those things! We are CHOSEN, we are LOVED, we are REDEEMED, we are BEAUTIFUL, we are PERFECTLY & WONDERFULLY MADE, we are ADORED, we are FORGIVEN, we are WORTHY, we are PRICELESS and oh so much more! 

This is a tag I made using the stamp set from the Illustrated Faith "You're Beautiful" kit. 

Here are some verses to remind you oh how very special you truly are!
  • Psalm 139:13-18
  • 1 Peter 2:9
  • Galatians 3:13
  • Luke 7:47
  • 2 Thessalonians 1: 5-12
  • 1 John 4:10
In His Love,
Tonya
