1 Corinthians 6:20 NKJV
"For you were bought at a price; therefore glorify God in your body and in your spirit, which are God’s."The 1st part of this verse has been echoing in my mind today.
"For you were bought at a price"...
As I sit and think about why these words keep repeating in my head, I remember all the moments these past few weeks I've worried about work, or my fears, or my longings and emptiness.
In those moments, when I worry, I forget that I am precious. I forget that the son of the living God gave His life, so that I could have eternal life. HIS life was my price.
And, in comparison to HIS sacrifice, my earthly problems seem starkly insignificant.
We are precious. And what's more, we are not our own. Our troubles are not our own. They are in the hands of a God who has the power over life and death. He owns them, because we are His.
This week I choose to embed the meaning of those words into every aspect of my being. I choose to believe that no matter how low I might feel, I am precious and loved by a God who knows the number of my days and how they will end.
I choose to cast my cares upon Him. For I know, He careth for me.
