Join me in praying that all of God’s people would feel His love for them in new ways this Valentine’s Day. One of the ways to celebrate this day is to let God’s liberating truth replace any of Satan’s cruel lies. Let me offer a few examples from my book Putting God Back into the Holidays.
|What I feel or think about myself||What God says about me as a Christian according to Scripture|
|“I am unworthy and unacceptable.”||“I accept you.” Rom 15:7|
|“I am alone.”||“I’ll live in you and you’ll never have to be alone as I had to be when I died on the cross for you.” (Gal. 2:20; Heb. 13:5-6)|
|“I am not special to anyone or loved/”||“You are a precious person to Me, and I am continually thinking about you.” (Psa. 139:17-18)|
|“I do not have what it takes to be successful in life.”||“I’m continually devoted to you and will provide all your need to fulfill My purpose for you.” (Rom. 8:31-32, 38-39)|
You can find many more of these in the book and also as you search God’s Word and learn about His delight in you. Happy Valentine’s Day. Thank you for being one who is willing to cry out to God.
