Worship Wednesday - Look In The Mirror...and Smile!

What you think about yourself is reflective of what you think about God.

Do you think about yourself in a way that honors your Creator? Let me illustrate this. My boys like to create "works of art" sometimes, whether it be a drawing or a sculpture or legos or whatever it is; if they spend a decent amount of time on it, they are always proud to show me their creation.

There is Someone who created you. Someone who thought of you, designed you, knitted you, formed you just the way you are and thinks you are an incredible work of art. And yet, at times, we believe lies from the enemy and talk bad about God's creation.

He says "You are my beloved."
We say "I'm trash. I'm worthless at this or that."

He says, "You are fearfully and wonderfully made."
We say, "I think I'm awkward and dumb. I wish I was more like ______."

The truth is that, whether we acknowledge it or not, our self-talk is not just self-talk. When we talk about ourselves, we're talking about our Creator! You are designed by GOD to be uniquely wired just the way you are! This means that you should not strive to be more like Suzie Q or Johnny Z who have the personality or body or job or house that you wish you had. You are the best you there is! No one else can be you and you are not good at trying to be someone else!

My encouragement for you this Wednesday is to worship God by reflecting on the ways that He gifted you and wired you to bless, encourage, build up and grow His Kingdom. Stop listening to the lies of the enemy! Scripture says in 2 Cor. 10 that we have the power to DESTROY strongholds. We do that by knowing the truths of what God says about us in Scripture, by confessing to God and friends our struggles, and by praying for divine power to crush and mute and destroy the lies.

Look in the mirror this week and say, "I'm awesome...just the way God made me." Worship Him for His design.

For though we walk in the flesh, we are not waging war according to the flesh. For the weapons of our warfare are not of the flesh but have divine power to destroy strongholds. We destroy arguments and every lofty opinion raised against the knowledge of God, and take every thought captive to obey Christ.
2 Cor. 10:3-5
