He Hath Done All Things Well

April 30, 2012

(St. Mark 7:37 KJV) “And were beyond measure astonished, saying, He hath done all things well: he maketh both the deaf to hear, and the dumb to speak.”

After Jesus had healed the deaf and dumb man from his lack of hearing and speaking the people declared “He hath done all things well”. And this statement still stands true today, “He hath done all things well”! If you are a believer in Christ Jesus, in spite of what your situation is in life, in spite of your circumstances, in spite of where you feel your life is now, the Lord makes no mistakes, in fact “He has done all things well”. Yes, it is possible to doubt that comment when we look at what’s going on in our world today.

It is possible to doubt that when we look at our own lives but if we will stand on the promises of God, which says “If God before us who can be against us (Rom 8:31)”; if we will stand on the word which says “And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are called according to his purpose (Rom 8:28).” Then to believe that he hath done all things well is not impossible at all.

Saints we must realize that some things happen in our world and in our lives to move us closer to God; some things happen in our world to cause people to pause, if only for a moment, and consider the fact that God is real. Don’t get so caught up with the bad things that are going on around us, because as long as we have a devil there will be bad things going on in the world, but the fact still remains the Lord hath done and will do all things well.

The final part of this piece on self-esteem is: Our self-esteem is grounded in the value God places on our life. When we look at the vast expanse of creation, we wonder how God could be concerned for people who constantly disappoint him and at times, disobey him. Yet God created us only a little lower than himself or the angels! The next time you question your worth as a person, remember that God considers you highly valuable. We have great worth because we bear the stamp of the Creator. (Ref. Genesis 1:26-27 for the extent of worth God places on all people.) Because God has already declared how valuable we are to him, we can be set free from feelings of worthlessness.

Self-Esteem-Part 2

April 25, 2012

(Rom 12:3) says “For I say through the grace given unto me, to every man that is among you, not to think more highly of himself than he ought to think; but to think soberly, according as God hath dealt to every man a measure of faith.”

The second thing we can learn about self-esteem or having a proper view of who we are is: Our self esteem is affected by how closely we identify with Christ: Healthy self-esteem is important because some of us think too little of ourselves; on the other hand, some of us overestimate ourselves. The key to an honest and accurate evaluation is knowing the basis of our self-worth—our identity in Christ.

Apart from him, we aren’t capable of very much by eternal standards; in him, we are valuable and capable of worthy service. Thus, evaluating ourselves by worldly standards of success and achievement can cause us to think too much about our worth in the eyes of others and thus miss our true value in God’s eyes. And the truth is that we all get caught up in what others think and believe our worth is. But let’s attempt to find our worth in the eyes of God because as long as we try to impress man the standard of our worth will always be changing based upon what mood man is in today but God’s standard never changes.

Self Esteem-1

April 24, 2012

Self Esteem: (Health, Maturity, self-love) Knowing who we are from Christ’s perspective. For the Christian there are at least three things that are very important if we are to have a proper view of who we are in Christ Jesus: The first thing we must understand is:
We are valuable to God:Our true value is God’s estimate of our worth, not our peers’. Most people evaluate and categorize us according to how we perform, what we achieve, how we look, what we wear, where we live or even who we know.

But God cares for us, as he cares for all of his creatures, because we belong to him. So we can face life without fear. Thus, if God takes care of the fowls of the air and feeds them; are we not much better than they in God’s eyes? Therefore, we need to understand that because we are valuable to God our self esteem should be found in him and him alone. What we must do is seek him first and his presence and he will fulfill that which we are missing in our lives.(Matt 6:25-34)
