Have you ever felt as if you didn't measure up, like you didn't have what it took? As if you were less than? All of us can relate to feelings of insecurity from one degree or another.
But it’s definitely not the way the Lord wants us to live. He wants us to live secure in Him.
God does not accept us on the basis of who we are or what we have done. He accepts us on the basis of who Jesus is and what Jesus has done for us. When we accept Jesus, He accepts us, completely and fully. What the Father said to Jesus, he says to those who have received Jesus as Savior and Lord, “This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well-pleased” (Matthew 3:17). Believe this truth and you will have Real Hope.
