Hang on to what God thinks about you...


It doesn't matter what people say or think about you.
What's important is what God thinks of you.
When people call you a failure or say things to discourage you, don't let it affect you. You'll always meet people around you who do not take time to see your heart but will be quick to judge, condemn,lie, magnify your faults & fail to see the good in you.
So Look up to God. Remember He loves you the way you are. He never gives up on you.Your help comes from the Lord.
Even when you fail & fall,if you cry out to Him with a sincere heart, He will lift you up, dust the dirt off you and will help you do better. He's still working on you. You are His treasured possession. He'll not condemn you when you fail and turn to Him for help. He'll look past your failures & sin at your repentant heart & help you stand & walk with a renewed strength & confidence.
Better hang on to what God thinks & says about you. If you have back-slidden, failed or fallen in your spiritual walk, just call out to Jesus, He'll be by your side to lift you up.
Let not the people who rejoice at your fall & failures bother you. God will take care of them! He will not allow you to be put to shame. He will contend with those who contend with you.
But choose not to look back at the sin you left behind. Desire to walk holy before God and work out your salvation with fear and trembling.
As we walk with God, He will fight for us.
Psalm 40: 14 May all who seek to take my life 

       be put to shame and confusion; 

       may all who desire my ruin 

       be turned back in disgrace.
Psalm 35:1, Contend, O LORD,
       with those who contend with me;
       fight against those who fight against me.
Psalm 35: 26 May all who gloat over my distress 

       be put to shame and confusion; 

       may all who exalt themselves over me 

       be clothed with shame and disgrace.
You can't avoid people misjudge you & speak ill of you but sure can choose to let God lift you up & make you stand on higher ground. Then one day the world will see that you find favour with God & that God's well pleased with you.
You are valuable to God, when He sees you He sees the price He paid for you, HIS SON. So your value is not in who you are or what you own but who you belong to.
So today will you choose to hang on to what God thinks about you?
Have a blessed day.
