This morning I woke up with these kinds of thoughts in my head...
- What have I ever achieved in life that is useful?
- I constantly fail in a particular area, I'm a failure
- Of what value am I or have I being to anyone?
- Does anyone even care?
- Why would the Lord even bother with me?
You know, the usual run of the mill emotional thoughts that try to influence and destroy your day and your witness in life.
A little while later I went and had a quiet time in the Word, and I asked the Lord to show me the truth of who I am. Show me the truth over my emotional thoughts. And this is what I read...
Rev 19 v 9: And the angel said to me, "write this: Blessed are those who are invited to the marriage supper of the Lamb." And he said to me, "These are the true words of God."
Did you read that?
Did you see what the Word says?
If you are born again, saved by the blood of the Lamb, you have been invited to the the marriage supper of the Lamb. You have been invited into His presence, you are worthy because of Him. If you are born again, you have been chosen by Jesus for salvation and you are blessed. That scripture follows with, "THESE ARE THE TRUE WORDS OF GOD!" Can God be more clear than that?
My emotions aside, my failures and lack of impact in life aside, I am worthy! I am blessed! I am invited to the marriage of the Lamb! Because of Christ! Because He chose to save me - and you!
Don't ever forget your value in Christ and don't ever forget that the Word says YOU ARE BLESSED!
