The Stamp of Approval
“ God saw everything that He had made, and behold, it was very good and He validated it completely” -Genesis 1: 31a
Let me ask you a few questions:
Have you ever struggled to believe that you are beautiful?
Have you ever looked outside of who you are as a Believer to find validation?
Have you developed a habit of relying on mainstream standards of beauty to the point that you value this standard above the Word of God?
I have and if you can say the same, it is ok. We need to focus on the fact that we were “created in the Image of God” according to Genesis 1:27. We also need to remind ourselves that everything that God created ,He deemed that it was GOOD!
We need to ask God to help us see ourselves the way that He sees us. We should never allow anything or anyone to devalue who we are as a part of God’s creation. He has already validated us completely according to today’s anchor scripture. He fashioned and formed us to be his most beautiful creation, Woman (see Genesis 2:22)
Today and everyday affirm yourself with these words:
I Am Beautiful.
We also need to deal with the insecurities that we harbor that make it hard for us to see ourselves the way that God does but that we will address that in an upcoming devotional!
