Have you ever felt like a failure in life?

Have you ever experienced insecurity? Insecurity about your appearance, your abilities, your personality, your life? Have you ever felt unloved and worthless? "I'm not attractive." "I can't do all the things that person can do." "I'm not good enough!" Nothing good ever happens in my life." "I'm a failure."

Those thoughts and feelings are lies from the devil aimed at getting you so down on yourself that you will never experience God's best for your life. They try to make you feel you are "just not good enough" so why would God want to bless you? God does not have one child who is not good enough to receive His love.

You are God's most prized possession! If God had to choose the finest thing He ever created - He'd say You! Yes, you! You are somebody special to God.

Jesus said that we are to love one another even as we love ourselves. If you don't like you, how are you ever going to like somebody else?

Low self-esteem is a result of a lack of knowledge. The reason so many Christians live way below their privileges as a child of God is because they don't know that they are highly favored of God.

In Psalm 8:3-5, the psalmist is reflecting on the greatness of God and writes, "When I consider thy heavens, the work of thy fingers, the moon and the stars, which thou hast ordained; What is man, that thou art mindful of him? And the son of man, that thou visitest him? For thou hast made him a little lower than the angels, and hast crowned him with glory and honour."

The Psalmist is saying, "Lord, You're so magnificent and creative, why would You have anything to do with man? Why did You create man?" But God is saying that you are His most prized possession! In fact, in the mind of God, you are more valuable than the stars, the moon, the heavens, and all His handiwork.

Just like an artist with all the wonderful, creative pieces he designs, there's always this one prized - possession. That's the way God feels about you!

Nothing you did in your past could be so terrible that God wouldn't forgive you. You are washed by the blood of Jesus and made a new creation in Christ Jesus. You have the nature of Almighty God!

When you begin to see yourself the way God sees you (crowned with glory and honor), then you'll begin to expect favor and success. You'll expect every adversity to be turned into victory. You'll expect to have authority over your circumstances, You're God's prized-possession.

Doubt and insecurity will vanish as you become more and more conscious of just how much favor and honor you have been given by God. John 12:26 says, "... if any man serve me, him will my Father honour."

There are people always questioning God, "Why did You let this happen to me?" They don't yet realize that God is for them and not against them! God did not cause this awful situation in your life to prove something to you. He cares about you. You are so loved by God that He is willing to give you freely ALL things. He's on your side!

Verse 34 says, "Who is he that condemneth? It is Christ that died..." You should not be walking in condemnation. You shouldn't be listening to the lies of the devil condemning you all the time and telling you how lousy you are, what a failure and a nobody you are. A person who listens to that all the time does not have a revelation of favor and honor.

You're so highly favored of God that He's saying that no weapon formed against you shall prosper (Isa. 54:17). You've been justified in the sight of God. Nothing can separate you from God's love!

You are somebody special.

Quit running yourself down. Quit talking ugly about yourself. Quit talking about what a failure you are. You are the handiwork of God. You are loved. You are highly favored of God.

Author Biography

Jerry Savelle
Web site: Jerry Savelle Ministries International
Dr. Jerry Savelle was an average, blue-collar man who was struggling and needed God's help. While he considered himself a "nobody," when he became a believer God told him not to worry about it because He was a master at making champions out of nobodies. God has since taken Dr. Savelle from being a constant quitter to a man who knows how to stand on the Word of God until victory is experienced. Because of the life-changing combination of God's faithfulness and Dr. Savelle's "no quit" attitude, his life is totally different than it was thirty-eight years ago.
