"I am fearfully and wonderfully made".
Self recognition is the first lesson in life. Probably one of first thing you learnt in life is to know who you are: your name, your sex, your complexion and the language you speak. There are some things they told you about yourself and there are some things you discovered. The question is, do you believe the right thing about yourself? or do you believe the negatives instead. It's so sad how we easily believe the negative things said about us rather than the positives, we tend to default to the darker side of ourselves than the bright side.
Coming to agreement with the reality of whom God has made you to be is the fundamental thing you need. Listen, the scripture declares that 'And hath made us kings and priests unto God and his father;' It's either you accept that or you live below it. The value of knowing is doing. You cannot operate beyond your knowledge. It is the way you relate to yourself that others relate to you. My thought for you today is to see the better side of your life. It doesn't really matter what others says about you, it is how you see yourself that determines your reaction to life. It doesn't really matter how life is treating you, (because life will always treat you whichever way) it how you react to life that matters, and this is underpinned by how strong you are on the inside. Do not attempt to negotiate life from the weak side of the table. you are more than conqueror through Christ.
You are important to God's programme, as far as God is concerned, you are a VIP (very important personality). You don't need to be proud about it. Pride is different from commanding the respect of your person. After all Daniel was humble enough to be the best in the University of Babylon.
Listen to Ralph Waldo Emerson when he says 'Make the most of yourself for that is all there is to you'. Let that be your thought today.
