This is a Biblical method of self assessment and self-esteem:
It will change your vision of yourself according to the way God sees you as his creation
and reveal to you his plan and will for your life.

What does God really think about you?
By Catholic Evangelist, Eddie Russell FMI
I hope you will agree with me that this cartoon below is quite funny.
Saint Theresa of Avilla once said, "A saint that is sad, is one sad saint."

God

How true that is. Especially when we consider that we should be the happiest people on the earth. Jesus prayed that His Joy would be in us and that would make our own joy complete. (John 17:13).

God is Love, and the God of Love, loves us!

W
e hear these words so much these days. It is certainly a far cry from the days of hell-fire and brimstone and, given that it can be taken literally, it should change our lives and our self-esteem for the better.

Sadly, in a lot of cases it doesn't. So many Christians fall into despair and self condemnation in spite of this. Their self-esteem seems to be governed by what others think rather than what God thinks.

This seems so no matter how much God demonstrates His Love for them in their every day circumstances.

This is especially true when we feel we don't deserve it.


Ahah!... Perhaps that is the problem!

We think we have to deserve it! Worse still, we think we have to earn it! Is this the way you think?

Then give up dear friend because you can't earn it! And you will certainly never deserve it. You see it is a free gift which must be accepted as simply as receiving a Christmas present. And that's the point; as simply as receiving a Christmas present!

This free gift is called "Grace." A word which means; unmerited, or unearned favour.

You have been receiving grace from your Insurance Company for many years and probably didn't realise it. How so? Well, every time your policy is due for renewal, the Insurance Company keeps you covered until you have paid the premium. This is the case even though your policy has run out.

If you check with your Insurance agent, or read your policy, you will discover that this is called "a period of grace". In other words, you haven't paid for it, you don't deserve it, but they keep you covered anyway. It is a free gift and, if something untoward happened during that time, you would still be paid out in full for any loss or damage.

Amazingly, we can take a human promise and accept it wholeheartedly without doubt or fear.

In fact if your Insurance Company tried to weasel out when you made a claim, you would be most upset and demand your justice. Surely, we should at least give God the benefit of the doubt regarding his Grace. He has given us an "Abundant Life Policy" bought and paid for by Jesus who has got you "covered" for eternal life by his Blood.

You could say that the Bible is your Divine Insurance Policy. It has some amazing clauses that spell out what God "really thinks" about you.

It is estimated that there are some 30,000 promises in the Bible and they all belong to you. Below you will find some of those clauses that pertain to you personally. Follow the ten points of agreement and you will begin to receive the full benefits of your Divine Insurance.

Even though this page is presented in a fun way, the truths it contains in the Word of God for you are infallible. By signing the Policy Claim and reading the affirmations each day you are placing yourself in a position to receive what it contains.

Saint Paul tells us that faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the Word of God (Romans 10:17). If you read these statements faithfully they will begin to become a reality in your life. Your self-esteem will conform to the way God thinks about you rather than the way you, the world or others think.

Yes, that's what it's all about. All you have to do is turn yourself around, but, let's just forget all the "Hokie Pokie."

There are more articles, resources, news, links, revival prophecies, healing testimonies, seminars and a whole lot more on this site.
