This one’s for my Christian sisters.
Every time you hear that little critical voice in your head saying you’re not good enough… you’re not worthy… you’re ugly… you’re fat…
I want you to recognize that as the voice of The Enemy.
The one whose sole purpose is to crush your spirit and distract you from your greater purpose as a daughter of the King.
The Enemy wants you to slave away at the gym and obsess over your diet. It’s the easiest way for him to keep you distracted from becoming the woman God created you to be and living out your true purpose.
The Enemy wants you to have low self worth and never feel good enough. He wants you to reject Christ’s gift of grace and to continue hustling for your worthiness. He wants you to value the opinion of other people above the opinion of your Creator.
Christ died to give us freedom from the bondage of negative self talk and low self worth. It’s time to start using His love as a shield against these spiritual attacks by the Enemy.
Whenever you have a negative thought about yourself, whether that be your body, your value as a woman, your intelligence, anything at all… I want you to identify that negative thought as a lie and a spiritual attack by the Enemy.
Once you’ve gotten into the habit of naming those negative thoughts as a spiritual attack, use the Word to defend yourself and replace those thoughts with something that is true.
Two of my favorite verses are:
- 1 Samuel 16:7 – But the LORD said to Samuel, “Do not consider his appearance or his height, for I have rejected him. The LORD does not look at the things man looks at. Man looks at the outward appearance, but the LORD looks at the heart.”
- Proverbs 31:30 – Charm is deceptive, and beauty is fleeting; but a woman who fears the LORD is to be praised.
This practice has been incredibly helpful for me in my own journey towards better self esteem and freedom in Christ. And I hope it helps you too!
