JESUS CHANGES EVERYTHING
When you accept Jesus Christ as your Savior, you also accept freedom, liberty, confidence, authority over evil, love, power, and a new life free of fear. Jesus didn’t come into the world and die for our sins just so that we can live our life accepting what the devil throws our way: fear, timidness, low self-esteem, etc.
1 John 3:8 He who sins is of the devil, for the devil has sinned from the beginning. For this purpose the Son of God was manifested, that He might destroy the works of the devil. (NKJV)
God didn’t create anyone with a low self-esteem.
Scripture says that we have been wonderfully and fearfully created.
However, the devil insists on feeding us his lies so that we can doubt God’s perfect work and live our lives feeling embarrassed, inferior, less, and afraid.
BUT it’s time that we stop listening to his lies. After all, they are just lies.
The devil only speaks lies. So when he makes you feel like you are not enough, not worth it, unloved, or inferior to everyone else, he is simply lying to you.
John 8:44 He was a murderer from the beginning, and does not stand in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaks a lie, he speaks from his own resources, for he is a liar and the father of it. (NKJV)
