You are Valuable

Sunday, October 8th, 2017


Your value does not depend on what other people think of you. Your value is based on who God says you are.

If a bird can’t fall to the ground without our Heavenly Father knowing it (Matthew 10:29), do you think that God doesn’t know absolutely every detail of our lives, including our needs? You are valuable!

So many times I have laid before the Lord a need that I had, and because we didn’t have money, only God could supernaturally provide that need. Over and over again, God provided through yard sales or someone giving me the thing I had asked God for. God knows what we need and He wants us to go to Him as our Jehovah Jireh, our provider.

I’ve shared this story before in the audio Prayer and Provision, where I asked the Lord if I could buy a $6 picture frame at Goodwill that had the perfect matting for a nursery rhyme poster for my daughter’s room. My daughter had no pictures on her newly painted pink walls, and I had no money. The little money I had, I needed for groceries. That’s why I asked God if I could buy the frame. He said yes clearly in my spirit.


After getting the frame, I drove to the grocery store, and in the parking lot, I saw money on the ground. It was folded neatly. There were no people in the parking lot, and I picked it up to find out that it was exactly $6, the price of the frame I had just bought!

I have to admit that this was the freakiest answer to prayer I’ve ever had, but God has miraculously provided for me so many times!

Provision isn’t the only thing that makes me feel valuable to God, as if He knows every detail of my life better than I do. Many times I have had to go before people and sit down, being interrogated and falsely accused, and God miraculously gave me the right words to say at the right time. I felt like I was in a lions’ den or in a courtroom without any support except for God Himself. God has come through for me miraculously so many times!


Even at age 15, I had a supernatural experience where God’s presence was tangible because I cried out to Him in absolute sorrow and horror. God delivered me without anyone else in the room. I tell of this experience in the spiritual warfare audio.

Time and time again, God has proven that His Word is true, and that when He says all the hairs of our head are numbered by God (Luke 12:7), why on earth do we think that we have no value?! No one can take away the value that God gives us, and if Christ died for us, He definitely considers us valuable to Him!

“Consider the ravens: they neither sow nor reap, they have neither storehouse nor barn, and yet God feeds them. Of how much more value are you than the birds!” Luke 12:24 ESV
