My beloved! Did you know that you are extremely valuable to your Heavenly Father? Did you know that you’re already accepted by Him, and there’s nothing you can do to make yourself more acceptable? The price for you has already been paid in full! That’s how much He wants you, loves you, and treasures you; but as wonderful as this truth may be, there are so many who still feel rejected? Many people don’t see their value. I remember the days of trying so hard to fit in while engaging in risky behaviors in order to get attention and acceptance. My feelings deceived me into lowering my value, and I would settle for all kinds of things just so I could mask the feelings of rejection. I was operating from damaged self-worth and low self-esteem; and the lower I felt, the more I compromised. Needless to say, my way of life led me down a painful path, and it was only the grace of God that led me out. I thank Him for sparing my life and not giving up on me, and that’s why I want to share this life-saving truth with you. 

If you’ve been feeling rejected, hurt, unwanted, or not good enough there’s hope, and this life-saving truth can set you free. So, what is this truth? It’s found in Romans 8:15, and it says, you have received the spirit of full acceptance! You are completely accepted! You have been adopted into the family of God- specifically chosen and wanted! Hence, that’s why your Heavenly Father can’t stop thinking about you (Psalm 139:17). Not only that, He cherishes and treasures you in every one of those thoughts (Psalm 139:17). That’s why your worth has never been determined by people, things, or even your opinions, but determined by God! And, when you finally accept this truth, you won’t settle or try to be accepted. Your feelings will no longer deceive you into lowering your worth. 

In other words, it was the Father’s perfect plan to purchase you back through Jesus. Not only that, He has the same exact love for you as He does Jesus (Ephesians 1:5). So now it’s time for you to hook yourself up to these truths. Jesus said if you embrace His word and truth, it would release freedom into your life (John 8:31-32). This word will set you free because Jesus has never abandoned or rejected you, and He never will (Hebrews 13:5). You are perfectly acceptable to Him, and He is head over heels in love with you!
