Be Secure In Who You Are – Joel Osteen Devotional, 22nd March 2022
Job 15:31, NIV
Let him not deceive himself by trusting what is worthless, for he will get nothing in return.
Many people can’t feel good about themselves unless they prove to other people that they are important. They are always having to outdo, outperform, outdrive, and outdress somebody else. If you live in a proving mode, it’s as though you’re running on a treadmill that never stops. As soon as you prove to one person that you’re okay, you’ll see somebody else you need to impress. It’s a never-ending cycle. You have to get off that treadmill. It’s very freeing when you realize you don’t have to prove anything to anyone.
Are you trying to prove your value by who you know, what you wear, or what you drive? Learn to be secure in who you are – you are a child of the Most High God. You belong to God. Whether you’re wearing Gucci or Goodwill, whether it’s Calvin Klein or Fruit of the Loom, your value never changes. You don’t have to have popularity, possessions, or performance to feel good about yourself. You don’t have to prove anything to anyone.
Prayer for Today
Father, thank You that I can feel good about myself because I am Your child. Thank You that I can get off the treadmill of proving myself to others because I don’t have to prove anything to anyone. I declare that I am secure because I belong to You, the Most High God. In Jesus’ Name, Amen
