who told you that lie?

 who told you that lie?

that you aren't good enough.

that you're not worthy.

that you'll never amount to anything.

who told you that your failures are final.

that your mistakes can't be overcome.

that your life is over.

who told you that no one could love you.

that you're worthless.

that you're beyond saving.

i don't know who told you those lies but they're wrong.

you are good enough.

you are worthy.

you have value.

the Bible is full of people who had the same lies told about them.

cheaters, murderers, adulterers, prostitutes, thieves.

names the world called them.

names the world determined they would always be.

names they had earned but names they didn't have to keep.

because God had the final say. and He said the world was wrong.

about them and about you.

because God isn't concerned with your past, He's concerned with your future.

He's not interested in where you've been, He's interested in where you're going.

He doesn't care who you were, He cares about who you can be.

cheaters, murderers, adulterers, prostitutes, thieves.

Moses was a murderer.
Abraham was a liar.
Jacob was a thief.
David was an adulterer.
Rahab was a prostitute.

lives the world believed would amount to nothing

lives God used to bring about His glory.

the world will be quick to remind you of what you've done wrong.

the world will be quick to point out your flaws.

but quit listening to what the world says.

God sent Jesus to overcome your sins.

His blood paid the price for your failures.

don't listen to the lies of the devil, learn the promises of God.

because who you used to be will never compare to who you can be with Him.
