WORTHLESSNESS

Your eyes saw my substance, being yet unformed. And in Your book they all were written, the days fashioned for me, When as yet there were none of them. Psalm 139:16 (NKJV)

The piercing arrow of rejection can be removed and the wounds healed as you understand that your intrinsic worth is forever bound to God’s unchanging truth. Joseph Aldrich, author, pastor, and Bible school president, speaks to this issue in his booklet Self-Worth:

Here’s the point: If the whole world decided you were worthless, it would not change your essential value. Why? because as a believer you share both the image and nature of the unchanging God Himself.

Your value is tied to Him. He is the magnetic north pole of your essential worth. The Almighty Creator is the infinite reference point, the ultimate standard, the “cosmic blue book” of your value . . . Your value was written in blood at the cross. And whatever He values is valuable.

If rejection has put you into a slough of despondency, affirm God’s love for you. You can eventually put rejection behind you as you place Christ in front of you.
