Chosen by God!
It is critical to know your value. When you know who you are then no one can devalue you. Don’t give away your personal power to anyone for any reason!
This is what the Word says about you:
“For we are God’s masterpiece. He has created us anew in Christ Jesus, so we can do the good things he planned for us long ago.” (Ephesians 2:10 AMPC)
"To the praise of the glory of His grace, by which He made us accepted in the Beloved. (Ephesians 1:6 NKJV)
"You formed my innermost being, shaping my delicate inside and my intricate outside, and wove them all together in my mother’s womb. I thank you, God, for making me so mysteriously complex! Everything you do is marvelously breathtaking. It simply amazes me to think about it! How thoroughly you know me, Lord!" (Psalm 139:13-14 TPT)
"Yet God has made everything beautiful for its own time..." (Ecclesiastes 3:11 NLT)
No relationship is worth accepting abuse, whether it's physical, verbal, emotional, mental, or spiritual. It is unacceptable. It hurts. It's all destructive. Don't allow anyone, man, woman, or child, regardless of authority, importance, or even family devalue you. We are God’s children and that alone makes us priceless.
“Even as [in His love] He chose us [actually picked us out for Himself as His own] in Christ before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy (consecrated and set apart for Him) and blameless in His sight, even above reproach, before Him in love.” (Ephesians 1:4 AMPC)
Acceptance of abuse is rooted in not accepting ourselves, not understanding our value, thinking we deserve the treatment. It's really the result of incorrect thinking and a lack of knowledge. And a lack of knowledge can, and will, destroy you.
“My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge. “ (Hosea 4:6 NKJV)
Know your value in Christ and don’t ever discount yourself for anyone or for any reason!
