Overcome the desires that consume and control your life! You will discover your true worth!
Everyone has something in their life that they feel would destroy them if they lost it, including you.
Drugs, alcohol, sex, money, fame, body image, food, or perhaps attention are all things that we become addicted to here on earth.
The pursuit of any of these things can rule your entire life! They can become so important to you that you actually consider them as more important than your relationships or even life itself.
Trying to overcome these addictions or desires directly, ignores the true problem. Deal with the core issue, and those desires can be overcome.
Deal with The Core, Your Self Worth
This is the core. You have a true need to feel worth something.
The things that consume you are just outward demonstrations of your inner need to feel worth something.
That’s right! Your desires consume you because you feel you are worth nothing without them.
Most Good Desires Can Never Make You Feel Complete
Even if you are attempting to get your worth from a good thing, like eating healthy or working out, or doing good for others, it will never get you what you want! You will never feel complete.
Look into yourself. What is in your life right now that immediately makes you lash out or panic when you think that you may never do it, or have it, or feel it again. It could be one thing or many.
Your True Worth is Only in God
The truth is that your worth ONLY comes from God. Sin separated you from the direct love of God himself, which makes you lose sight of your true worth.
Now your spirit looks everywhere or anywhere to find that feeling of wholeness.
Because of the sacrifice of Jesus, there is now a direct line of sight from your spirit to the love and acceptance of God.
There is nothing you can do to create worthiness in yourself, but you were personally worth so much that the Creator of the Universe endured an eternity of punishment.
The punishment for every sin you have ever committed and every sin you will ever commit in the future is already paid.
Repeat. You are personally worth so much that the One True God paid eternal punishment for you!
Your worth is already established by the overwhelming love of God! Let go of your guilt and shame. Thank Him today for your unmatched worth in Jesus! Now overcome!
