You’re not alone. If there’s one thing I want you to know in this moment it’s that you’re not alone.
I’ve been struggling this week and I guess for the whole summer with feelings of inadequacy, feelings of not being good enough and feelings of not being forgivable.
So I want you to know that you’re not alone in these feelings cause I feel them too, every second.
Here’s another thing I want you to know; that voice that’s telling you you’re not good enough, that you can’t receive grace, that you could never be forgiven – that’s a lie sent straight from the pit of hell.
satan wants you to be discouraged. satan doesn’t want you to receive Jesus’ love, grace and forgiveness because he knows that if you do, you’ll fall in love with Jesus and never get back up again. satan wants you to fail, satan wants you to believe that you are a terrible, disgusting piece of human life who has no worth and who Jesus doesn’t give a second look at so he lies.
He lies and he tells you that you’re not worthy.
He lies and says that Jesus could never forgive you for going to that dark place you were in.
He lies and tells you that there’s no way Jesus could even get you out of that dark place you’re in.
He lies and tells you that you’re not good enough.
He lies and tells you that you could never change.
He lies and tells you that Jesus doesn’t love you.
But, my love, that’s all they are – lies. satan’s words have no authority here because while satan is lying to you, Jesus is whispering truth into your heart.
Jesus hugs you and tells you that you are a worthy child of His.
Jesus says you’re already forgiven.
Jesus comes alongside you and brings light into your darkness. He tells you that He left the 99 others to go out and find you.
He smiles at you and says you’re more than enough.
He picks you up and tells you over and over again, “I love you, I love you, I love you.”
Jesus is with you, He loves you and He’ll never let you go. Today, I hope you know that.
