I woke up to a strange thought this morning. Before I could read the word, I heard, “You are living your life by the numbers.”
A strange thing to speak to a math teacher. Numbers are my life.
Then the Holy Spirit reminded me of the time David conducted a census and it displeased God. That story has always confused me.
So then I asked, “Okay Lord, what are you trying to tell me?”
“Don’t confuse post likes with significance.
Don’t confuse popularity with value.
Don’t confuse book sales with revelation.
Don’t confuse weight with beauty.
Don’t confuse bank balances with riches.
You have My ear. You are significant.
You were worth dying for. You are valuable.
You hear My voice. You have revelation.
You were created and designed in My image. You are beautiful.
I gave My Son for you. How will I not freely give you all things. You are rich.
Do not allow your self-worth or your impact in the kingdom of God be measured by numbers. You are doing what I have called you to do and I am pleased with you, My daughter. Don’t live your life for the numbers.”
How do you measure your significance? Your value? Your worth? Your beauty?
Post likes are fickle, friends ebb and flow, weight fluctuates, and the economy can be unstable.
But God is unchanging. Who you are in Him is eternal. What He thinks of you does not change. Find your significance, your beauty, your value in Him and Him alone.
Don’t live your life for the numbers.
“Every part of you is so beautiful, my darling. Perfect is your beauty, without flaw within.”
