Surely he has borne our griefs and carried our sorrows;
yet we esteemed him stricken, smitten by God, and afflicted.
But he was pierced for our transgressions; he was crushed for our iniquities;
upon him was the chastisement that brought us peace,
and with his wounds we are healed. (Isaiah 53:4-5 ESV)
Most days I feel unworthy. I don’t feel like I deserve anything good to happen in my life. I don’t feel worthy of love or friendship. I plain just don’t feel worthy of any kind of blessing or goodness or kindness showed to me.
Now, if I let these feelings overtake me, I can fall into a deep pit of despair and depression that becomes overwhelming, and you know Satan loves to just kick you when you are down. I’m not sure if you realize this, but your enemy doesn’t fight fair. You are not in a boxing match, for that has rules; you are in a street fight with the devil and there are no rules in a street fight. He will bludgeon you when you are down and he won’t let up.
Finally, when I come to my senses, I can hear that still, small voice say to me, “My body was broken for you and you are mine.”
Do you not realize you were worthy of His dying for you? You may not feel worthy, but you are worth-ful. No man dies for anything that doesn’t have worth. He died because you have worth to Him. He died so that you could have everlasting life with Him, an abundant life full of His blessings and goodness.
It doesn’t matter how you feel; it only matters what He says. You are His. Trust in this today, in Jesus’ name!
