Unworthy. That’s me.
How often have I have allowed my fellowship with my Lord to be blocked by my own feelings of unworthiness? Defeat over failures and sins blossoms into an inability to petition my King.
I am unworthy – that’s nothing new.
I was unworthy of His love when He died for me,
and unworthy of His forgiveness when He saved me.
The miracle is that His love makes me worthy.
The worth of an object is determined not by its innate goodness but by the worth of the One Who owns it. In my case, I am deemed worthy by the God of the Universe.
I know that I am still unworthy. I still fail – daily – sometimes hourly. However, defeat that comes from this feeling of unworthiness is not from God, because through His mercy and grace He has deemed me worthy. I live in the confidence of His love for me.
I have trusted Him for my salvation. Each and every day I must trust Him for my life.
I Timothy 1:15 This is a faithful saying, and worthy of all acceptation, that Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners; of whom I am chief.
