Kathy — The second temptation of Jesus was when Satan said, “Since you are God’s Son, jump.” Many grow up never being affirmed. No authority figure notices their worth or ever takes the time to declare it, but God did. “This is My beloved Son in whom I’m well pleased,” affirmed Jesus personally and publicly. Satan couldn’t make Him test His own worth because he couldn’t make Him doubt His Father’s affirmation. (Mt.3:17)
(Kathy Gabler)—Hebrews 11:6 also says that “without faith it is impossible to please God.” Our stillness may be challenged if we misunderstand that part of the scripture. We must understand that pleasing our loving Father is different from pleasing others. Pleasing God is not the same as pleasing the boss or pleasing a task-master or pleasing a judge or pleasing the powers that be in the human realm. God is not affected by humanness, and He is not so shallow that pleasing Him is about emotions or preferences or moods that humans or Greek gods seem to be fraught with. Neither is pleasing God a matter of our worth or value to Him as is the case in a master-slave relationship. (Sixth excerpt from Kathy’s article “Trust Gives God Access” Vol.22Iss3)
How long has it been since you were delightfully surprised so that your heart leaped with joy? Have you ever come to the place in your life of seeing something you thought you would never get to see? Sudden discovery is a delight to the heart of persons of all ages. Finding something that is of personal value to you is like a treasure that brings great joy. There are blessings you have not yet received. There are victories you have not yet walked in. How do I know? (1Cor.2:9, CEV) “…What God has planned for people who love him is more than eyes have seen or ears have heard. It has never even entered our minds!” We are praying you discover daily that you are seeing and hearing good things from your heavenly Father. (Marty’s Daily Discovery as heard on TEXAS PRAISE RADIO at the bottom of the hour 24hrs/day.)

CLICK HERE TO WATCH: YOU HAVE VALUE
Jesus’ death, burial, resurrection and ascension was for our salvation. That salvation includes the power to overcome any obstacle to your life and purpose. The fact that He came to die for you proves that you have value. That’s your trump, the undeniable proof that you have value and that will forever declare your worth! The challenge is figuring out how to get your emotions to agree with that truth so that you don’t bottom-out if someone treats you as if you don’t have worth. If someone’s selfishness or pride or ignorance or prejudice or stupidity causes them to look at anybody as worthless, that is their problem. It is a lie to believe someone else’s problem can make you worthless. The challenge here is to find a way that their problem has no influence over our emotions. If we can learn to leave those offending moments in life by deciding not to stop and replay them, we can walk away in the confidence that we can trust God to deal with people and their issues while we rest in the truth that our self-worth isn’t even at risk.

While identity is the first basic need in helping see ourselves as God does, the second basic need for all of us is the need for affirmation. Affirmation is someone else’s agreement that there is value in you, in your potential, in your purpose and in your presence on earth. Affirmation comes thru relationship. If affirmation is one side of a coin, the other is self-worth.
