Worthless and Precious- Part 2

HOLD ON You just HOLD ON! I’m Precious, Worthless mentioned me, but let me tell you about myself!

My name is Precious, because I am how God sees you. I am a word amongst words that God uses to define you. Precious describes you and how God feels about you. God created you in His image and calls you Precious; you are essential and necessary to His plan. And there is only one of you. God created you with value and for a reason and purpose. Out of LOVE, He created you.

The value of the human body 

Your entire body is worth $45 million, according to a 2005 study by the Indiana University School of Medicine. Vital organs no longer hold the distinction of being the most valuable body parts; instead, your bone marrow for all 206 bones in your body is worth $23 million ($23,000 per 1,000 grams). DNA is worth $9.7 million at $1.3 million per gram. And a kidney is worth more than a heart, bringing in $91,000 compared to $57,000 for a new ticker.

A mere human exchange for $45 million may sound fair to you, but to God for His only son, Jesus Christ? I don’t think so! We can’t assign a cost to the Irreversible Act on the Cross.

What you believe matters

Precious speaks. You must believe in your heart that I am telling you the truth. You are a remarkable, one of a kind person. Worth more than your weight in Gold and Silver!

God writes about you in His word. I like what He says about you in Isaiah 43:4 (NASB).

Isaiah 43:4 (NASB) “Since you are precious in My sight, Since you are honored and I love you, I will give other men in your place and other peoples in exchange for your life.

I, Precious, promises you that God has not forgotten you, nor will He leave you. How can He when He has your name in the palm of His hand? 

He sees you as me, Precious, when you look to Him you find endless love. He cares, and He is there when hard times come, and they will come. You must understand He will not shield you from hard times. But He will go through the tough times with you.

I know it sounds too good to believe, but believe you must because the one thing God can’t do is lie! You are ingrained, unforgettable, permanently etched on His heart. So much so, that He created you with an idea in mind. A plan just for you. 

Jeremiah 29:11 NASB For I know the plans that I have for you,’ declares the Lord, ‘plans for welfare and not for calamity to give you a future and a hope.

Ephesians 2:10 NASB For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand so that we would walk in them.

Worthless may tell you to forget God and His plans. But Precious will encourage you to take God’s plans as truth. Unfailing truth! God knows what’s best. 

He calls you by my name, Precious, so don’t listen to Worthless. Worthless is a lier and a deceiver, this is his job, and he does it well. Don’t be tricked and fall for his words.

When you are not sure about the words you hear, ask God, “are these words from you?” I know how hard it is for you to believe, trust, and follow God, but through prayer and supplication, you can. You can WIN!

In closing

I hope the calm but firm voice from Precious will dwell in your hearts. The battle is mighty. It is real. And it is dangerous. The fight between Precious and Worthless is to the death.

I hope the words of Precious penetrates the heart, and the Truth, Trust, and Faithfulness of God lives and dwell in you!

Thanks for stopping by! Leave me a message I would love to hear from you.
