We are our own worst critics. Condemning, shaming, comparing.
More often than not, we see where we fall short and not in the spiritual sense but rather in comparison to those around us.
- Fit in a smaller size.
- Make every meal from scratch.
- Take up a hobby or four.
- Get more involved in activities.
- Earn more.
- Buy more.
So why then do we preach His love but choose not to believe it?
Isaiah 62:5 states “…as a bridegroom rejoices over his bride, so will your God rejoice over you.”
He delights in us. Takes pleasure in us.
We’ve heard it a thousand times–it’s not our accomplishments or what we have. But what does it take for that to sink in?
Be still. Rejoice. The Creator sees you.
And is pleased.
