What is Your Worth in God’s Eyes? What Does the Bible Say?
Many of us feel totally worthless; especially those of us who now live, or have lived with an abuser. We are made to feel that we have no value except for making our abuser happy. If he is angry with us, we feel we are lower than an insect crawling along the ground.
But, what does the Bible say? How does God see us? Let’s read from the New International Version – Romans 8:31– 39:
31 What, then, shall we say in response to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us?
Yes, if God is for you, what is your true worth?
32 He who did not spare his own Son, but gave him up for us all—how will he not also, along with him, graciously give us all things?
Your abuser might think you have no worth, but the God who created the universe thought enough of you to send His only Son to die so that you could be with Him for eternity.
33 Who will bring any charge against those whom God has chosen? It is God who justifies.
34 Who then is the one who condemns? No one.
That’s right, NO ONE.
Christ Jesus who died—more than that, who was raised to life—is at the right hand of God and is also interceding for us.
The same Jesus who went to the cross for you, is in heaven, praying for you right now.
35 Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall trouble or hardship or persecution or famine or nakedness or danger or sword?
Will the trouble, hardship, persecution, hunger, or danger you are in right now separate you from the love of Him who died for you?
36 As it is written:
“For your sake we face death all day long; we are considered as sheep to be slaughtered.”
Some days, you may feel like a sheep on its way to being slaughtered. However…
37 No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us.
38 For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, 39 neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.
Yes, we are MORE than conquerors through the love of Jesus. Nothing will ever separate us from His love.
So, though your abuser thinks you have no worth, and some days you might think you have no worth, what does God say about your worth?
