Worthy ~

Sometimes we don’t feel,
we are worthy of . . .
God’s mercy and favor
let alone His gift of love.

But, that is just a lie,
satan likes to tell . . .
for he wants to drag us
straight with him into hell.

Sometimes we don’t feel,
we are deserving of . . .
Jesus’ saving grace
let alone His undying love.

But, that is just the devil,
trying to get into us . . .
for, he is out to destroy
in God our faith and trust.

Sometimes satan will,
unsettle us with worry
but, we must believe . . .
to God we are worthy!

1 Corinthians 6:11

And such were some of you:
but ye are washed, but ye
are sanctified, but ye are
justified in the name of
the Lord Jesus, and by the
Spirit of our God.

2 Corinthians 11:3

But I fear, lest by any means,
as the serpent beguiled Eve
through his subtilty,
so your minds should be
corrupted from the
simplicity that is in Christ.

    I see that you will not be posting my response above, but I wanted to add this note to you.

    By definition grace means without merit and undeserving.

    To say that it is ‘just the devil’ that is deceiving us into thinking that we are not worthy or deserving of God’s grace, favor, or love, is simply not true. I would say it’s just the opposite. That nagging feeling that we are not worthy of God’s love? It’s there for a reason. To think that we ‘are’ worthy or deserving is the “lie satan likes to tell.”

    To realize our true position shouldn’t make us feel somehow less; it actually makes God’s love for us more remarkable! We are not worthy, we are not deserving; yet He suffered immensely and gave His life to save us, and this gives us immeasurable worth. Not worthiness. There is a difference.

    I only write this to tell you that there is incredible freedom in realizing we deserve nothing from God, yet He has given us everything! It is a humbling fact that my God loves me, warts and all. Enough to die a horrible death on a cross. Considering that, what could possibly ever separate me/us from Him?

    God bless you, sister.

    The beauty of our God is that we are NOT worthy or deserving of His grace, favor, or love. He died for us while we were yet unworthy and undeserving sinners. His death and grace ascribe worth to us.

    The most freeing thing I’ve ever realized is that in myself I am not worthy or deserving of anything. I don’t even argue the point with the enemy. It is Christ in me alone that is worthy and deserving. And for that He has eternal gratitude and praise!

    God bless you, Sister. ~Dee
