Your daily goal:
Philippians 3:14 “I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus.”
(Monday-Friday, from my morning time of study and reflection, I will share with you what God is teaching me. I ask you then to join me in each day and pray that God will use our time to draw us to a deeper understanding of His will and His ways. Our objective is simple…to ‘see’ and ‘know’ the light and love of Christ Jesus..‘so that’ we will GO OUT and share the love of Christ Jesus with someone in that day….to GO and bear fruit …to be light to the world.)

Continuing final summary points of ‘The Search For Significance…by Robert McGee’
If we insist on valuing our self-worth by our appearance and performance, sooner or later God will graciously allow us to see the futility of that struggle. The Lord never meant for us to find the fulfillment of our self-worth and significance in the opinions of others. This undeniable, unavoidable need for a sense of value was created in man by God. However, He knows we will never come to Him until we find the importance of people’s opinions to be empty and hopeless. At that point, we can turn to Him and find comfort and encouragement in the truths of His Word!
My friends….False beliefs are all a part of the enemy’s insidious plan. For many of us, for much of our life, we do recognize the power of the sin nature at work in our mind to mess with our self-image and ideas, our thinking, and such negatively affects our sense of true self and self-worth. God has always had a different plan for us…a different way of seeing and thinking…and such comes through regeneration and renewal…through transformation.
By now, we should see that ‘deception’ is the #1 tool that Satan uses to steal, kill, and destroy mankind. God has His own plan for you, and it alone will bring you a stable sense of self-worth. With a godly self-worth comes a new direction and purpose: to honor the One who laid down His life to give you security and significance. (con’t tomorrow)
The fear of man will prove to be a snare. Prov 29:25
