• “When God calls you to do something, He provides everything it takes to get it done.” – Nancy Leigh DeMoss

Rejected by Men by Nancy Leigh DeMoss 02/23/12

“I found myself constantly wondering what people thought of me—doing things I thought would make them happy. I think it all comes from a feeling that ‘I’m not worth anything.’”

Nancy Leigh DeMoss: There’s a verse in 1 Peter that shows us that Jesus’ sense of worth didn’t come from what others thought about Him. It came from what God thought.

It says He was “rejected by men but chosen by God and precious to him.”

Jesus was rejected by men—those He had created for Himself. He loved them so much He laid down His life. But His value came from being chosen by God. That’s what made Him precious. That’s what determined His worth.

Your worth is also determined by God. He loves you so much that He gave His Son for your sins. Remember that the next time you’re tempted to believe, “I’m not worth anything.”

With Seeking Him, I’m Nancy Leigh DeMoss.
