Today Reminder - 18 April 2013 (Hannah)

A reminder for today
The LORD makes some poor and others rich; He brings some down and lifts others up. He lifts the poor from the dust and the needy from the garbage dump. He sets them among princes, placing them in seats of honour. For all the earth is the LORD's, and He has set the world in order. (1 Samuel 2:7-8)

Hannah’s prayer of praise.

This is just an amazing prayer of praise that Hannah prays to the Lord. Verse 7 and 8 caught my attention. I love how she says that the Lord lifts the poor out from the garbage dump and places them among princes. I can just imagine how grateful Hannah must be to the Lord for changing her life and giving her a son. When she says that the Lord lifts the needy up, I can just see how tough her life must’ve been when she was childless in a world where a woman's worth is measured in her children. She must’ve been embarrassed and I am sure she felt a lot of times that she is worthless.

My dear friend, the Lord wants me to tell you today that you are not worthless. God weights your value in gold and He places you among princes. You are beautiful and perfect in every way, because you were designed and created by the Creator of heaven and earth. There are no flaws in your design so you should not think yourself any lesser than the next person. No matter your mistakes or whatever you past looks like, you are perfect to God and He loves you unconditionally. Jesus said: “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one can come to the Father except through me.” 

Come and let us accept who we are and let us shine for Jesus and show the world that God made us perfect for He that dwells within us is perfect. 

Have an awesome day dear friend of Jesus.
