Topic: Succeed At Being Yourself [Joyce Meyer Devotional 11]
And Nathan said to the king, “Go, do all that is in your heart, for the Lord is with you.” — 2 Samuel 7:3
Are you tired of playing games, wearing masks, and trying to be someone other than who you are? Wouldn’t you like the freedom just to be accepted as you are, without pressure to be someone you really don’t know how to be? Would you like to learn how to succeed at being yourself?
God wants you to accept yourself, to like who you are, and to learn to deal with your weaknesses. Everyone has weaknesses, but God doesn’t want you to reject yourself because of them.
If you base your value on your weaknesses, you will underestimate your value. Your worth is not based on anything you do but on what God has already done.
So, if Satan has been trying to convince you that you don’t measure up to the proper standard, remind him that everyone is imperfect and that God loves you just the way you are.
Prayer Starter: Father, You knew me and had a great plan for my life before I was ever born. Help me to view my weaknesses in a balanced way and truly love the person You created me to be. Today, help me to see myself the way You see me. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
