You Are Paid For

When you think about a price to pay for material things, the money you hand over is what it is worth, right? 

No matter if you have that twenty-dollar bill, or four pennies, the price doesn’t change based on our perception of the thing in hand.

We were once paid for with a life. Jesus not only found Himself on a tree, He willingly dragged a cross along a brutal path to pay a penalty that we should have paid, something we should have suffered for.

Why do we continue to find low worth in ourselves at times when the King gave it all for us?  Why do we hang onto selfish conceit, making our struggles an idol? How do we let go?

 But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us

Romans 5:8 NIV

There will be a day when all tears and doubts are wiped away. These mere feelings will no longer burden us nor will they matter. We will be in a place where we will not be able to even fathom such troubles.

Made perfect on the other side, all that will be of importance is Jesus. Our idols will be shattered and swept away.

We long to live like this now. Longing to boldly approach the Lord and truly let go, we stand meekly by, waiting for a chance to feel propelled forward. The need to truly let go of any and all bondage is a must.

Lift up your hands and thank the Lord for paying the price for our lives. No longer feel trapped in doubt and foolishness. Allow Him to lift you up and wipe away the dust that has settled on the internal strife.

We need to strive to look at ourselves the way Jesus sees us, and to notice others in the same light. Once we put worth on to the children that the Lord saves, our self-doubt will start to dissipate. We will break free through the hope that we have in our Savior.
