God’s Wisdom ~ Discounting What I Say
“The Lord your God is with you, he is mighty to save. He will take great delight in you, he will quiet you with his love, he will rejoice over you with singing.” Zephaniah 3:17
Why do you often declare yourself unworthy and unlovely? I am calling you ‘beloved’ but you discount it. Whatever I seem to say, you recant. What would it mean for you to respond, “Oh, I am lovely to You, Lord. I am Your masterpiece of grace.”
To reject My appraisal of you is to reject My truth. To discount My Word is unbecoming. This is not humility. This is pride. Humility begins when you say, “I believe. Help my unbelief.”
I have made you worthy and though it is a gift, it is true just the same. Own it. Stand tall in it. Rejoice about the spiritual life I’ve birthed in you. Disbelief of anything I say must be put aside. The life of faith is to abandon your own flawed perspective.
