Do you really know your worth? Your value?
I was driving down the road the other day when I had one of those moments. You know the ones. The ones where you know God is giving you an important glimpse. A profound moment of clarity.
This one was short but oh so powerful. I looked up just in time to see the end of the story. A tiny little white and gray bird was flying right above the roof of a thrift store. That little lady was so small, but there was no missing her. She was flapping her wings furiously to make sure she was seen and heard. Flying away from her, was a GIGANTIC crow.
Don’t know about ya’ll, but I really, really, really, REALLY do not like crows! I know they are all circle of life and everything. I know all you farm girl types are going to lecture me next time you see me. But I just can’t stand them! They represent death and I am sticking with my assumption on this one.
And have you ever come across a crow eating something right in the middle of the road? There are usually two of them. And you can’t miss them because they are the size of a large breed canine. And they are usually eating something disgusting. This is ususally the time I speed up and start blasting my horn. (My kids absolutely LOVE this habit……) I am not doing this to run them over. I am doing it in an attempt to scare them off. But guess what? THEY DON’T CARE! If they fly off, they do it ever so nonchalantly. Because, they aren’t scared of me and my big driving machine!
But this little tiny bird? This baby knew her ground! She knew her territory! And NOBODY, no bird, no matter how big, was going to mess with her! Not her. Not her home. Not her family.
So, I am asking you again. Do you know your ground? Do you know your territory? Do you know your WORTH?
Little sister…….. Put your foot down! Flap those wings! Do what only you can do best. Tell the enemy that HE HAS NO PLACE in that the Father has given to you. Call on the presence of the One who lives inside of you. The One that bought you. Adopted you. Made you. Designed you to exhibit the value He placed inside of you. Because your worth? Your value? The enemy sees it. And it terrifies him……
