?What Does the Bible Say about Your Worth

Jennifer Waddle

You Were Created with Great Worth
The Biblical view of self-worth is not only freeing; it is encouraging for everyone who has struggled with self-esteem. In our search for value, we begin with the Scriptures that say, “Your eyes saw my unformed body; all the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be. How precious to me are your thoughts, God! How vast is the sum of them!” (Psalm 139:16-17)

God oversaw every stage of your development and ordained your days before you even took your first breath! Think about that for a moment. He spent time fashioning you into His likeness so that You could walk the earth as His child—a child representing their father. His thoughts over you are good. He wants the very best for you. You were created with great worth. The God of the universe does not waste time thinking about worthless things. Instead, He thinks about those He loves with the best and most pure intentions. He works in your life for His glory and your good.

Your Worth Is Exemplified as You Walk with God

Author and Pastor A.W. Tozer once wrote, “When the Lord lays His hand upon a man, that man ceases at once to be ordinary. He immediately becomes extraordinary, and his life takes on cosmic significance…Christ knows His own sheep by name…There are no unknown Christians, no insignificant sons of God. Each one signifies, each is a “sign” drawing the attention of the Triune God day and night upon him.” What a beautiful word-picture of God laying His hand upon those who seek Him and walk with Him. As we enter the sheepfold of the Good Shepherd, our worth is exemplified by Christ in us. His light shines through us as we live in a dark world, set apart for His glory.

Nothing Can Steal Your Worth in Christ

Sin and shame are the main culprits in hindering our sense of worth. And certainly, we can’t ignore them. However, we also cannot remain stuck in them, allowing self-condemnation to steal our sense of worth in Christ. This is a huge distraction that comes only from the enemy. God loved us while we were still sinners! And He continues to love us in order to bring us to the saving knowledge of His Son. Don’t let anyone make you believe you are worthless to the Lord. Your past and current mistakes are always, always redeemable!

(1 John 1:9) says, “If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness.”

God is faithful and just. He will forgive your sins and purify you. Nothing can steal your worth—not even sin and shame. Daily, we can enter His gates with thanksgiving and His courts with praise. We can go boldly to His throne to receive forgiveness. Nothing builds self-worth more than knowing we are walking in obedience to God.
