Christians: impervious to insecurity
Matthew 12:7 tells us how valuable we are to God, saying, “But the very hairs on your head are all numbered. Do not fear therefore; you are of more value than many sparrows.”
In Jeremiah 1:4-10 we get a glimpse into the process by which God calls and ordains us. In verse 5, God tells Jeremiah: “Before I formed you in the womb I knew you; before you were born I sanctified you; I ordained you a prophet to the nations.”
From this verse, it’s clear that God’s purpose for us—His spiritual calling on our lives—precedes even our birth!
Because God places immense value on us, and because He has plans for us, He has given us authority and resources. Therefore, when we feel resource-less, empty-handed or powerless, we can be certain that that is an attack from the devil. He wants us to ignore the plans, value, and resources God has given us.
Have you felt resource-less or powerless recently? Ask God to show you the authority and spiritual resources that He has made available to you!
