• “It takes spiritual authority to bless others. Many Christians say, “God bless you,” but one clearly senses that although the words express a kind wish, they lack real spiritual authority.” – Basilea Schlink

A Masterpiece by Nancy Leigh DeMoss 11/23/11

“I don’t know why, but when I was six someone said I shouldn’t have been born.”

Nancy Leigh DeMoss: A lot of women fall for the lie that says, “You’re not worth anything.” A lot of times that deception is fueled by the uncaring words of others.

“For a long time I thought of myself as just worthless.”

Nancy: Someone may have made an off-hand remark to you that made you feel worthless. When that happened, it was like a foolish person throwing away a beautiful painting because she didn’t recognize its value.

But imagine an art collector who comes along, finds the unwanted painting, and cherishes it as a masterpiece. That’s what God’s done for you.

Ephesians 1 says, “For he chose us in him before the creation of the world to be holy and blameless in his sight.” When He sent His Son to die for your sin, He gave you your value. You are precious to Him.

With Seeking Him, I’m Nancy Leigh DeMoss.
