Valuable to God

Psalms 139:14 I will praise thee; for I am fearfully and wonderfully made: marvellous are thy works; and that my soul knoweth right well.

Matt. 10:30-31 And the very hairs on your head are all numbered. So don’t be afraid; you are more valuable to God than a whole flock of sparrows.

For some reason this morning an incident that occurred a couple of years ago has come to the forefront of my mind. I was waiting on a customer at work and she was regaling me with stories of her two new grandchildren. On and on she went. Finally she asked me if I had any grandchildren. I told her that I did not and in fact I did not have any children. Her response to me was "NO CHILDREN??? NO CHILDREN AT ALL???" She acted as if this was the worst thing in the world. By the time she left I was feeling as if I had no value at all. She left me feeling like since I am no ones grandmother, mother or wife that my life held no value.

But, the Word of God tells me something different!! His Word says that I am "fearfully and wonderfully made". I am more valuable to Him than a flock of sparrows. In Jeremiah it says that His plans for me are good!!! These are not just words about me!!! These are words about you too!!!! So, if today you are feeling like this world sees no value in you, remember what your Father in heaven says about you!!!!

This devotion was written from the heart of Beth Reed. I pray that it has encouraged you today. I would love to hear from you.

  1. You are worth far more than rubies or gold Beth Ann. God has trusted you to help further the kingdom of God in so many ways that you never dreamed to be worthy of doing! To the outside world your life seems perfect. All that is lacking is your desire to have a mate and to raise a child. Trusting with everything within me that the desires of your heart is on the way!!! Love you! Pamela Britt Malone
