Learning to Love Ourselves

8:55:00 AM

Many people today struggle with trying to build relationships with others. Too often it can be because they have a very poor relationship with themselves. 

Matthew 19:19 says that you are to love your neighbor as yourself. But loving yourself sometimes can be the most difficult thing to do because we can have a very negative view of ourselves.

If we don't like ourselves, it's for sure we won't like other people. 

So how do we change the way we look at ourselves. I want to focus on one aspect which has helped me tremendously in the past. 

Proverbs 18:21 says that death and life are in the power of the tongue. In other words, what you confess is what you will become.

I believe that when we confess what God says about us from the Word of God, we become that over a period of time. Below I have enlisted a few confessions that we can all make over ourselves:
  • I am special.
  • I am loved.
  • I am unique.
  • I am a child of God.
  • I am created in His image.
  • I am fearfully and wonderfully made.
  • I am created a little lower than the angels.
  • I am born an original and not a cheap copy.
  • I am a child of the King, the royal blood of heaven is in my veins.
  • I am a victor in Christ Jesus and not a victim.
  • I am a winner.
  • I am the chosen one in Christ Jesus.
  • I am not a mistake.
