Breaking the chains of insignificance.

Posted by appolus on June 30, 2018

In Scotland we have a phrase ” He’s not worth tuppence.” Tuppence meaning two penny’s. It does not get cheaper than that. Maybe my American friends would say “I wouldn’t give you a dime for him.” Whatever phrase you know or use, the meaning is clear, somebody or something is worthless. For a Christian to use this phrase about anyone would be horrible. To believe yourself or someone else to be worthless is to not understand the most basic principle of Christianity which is Joh 3:16 “For God so loved the world that He gave His only-begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.” If you are known personally by God, If He knows every hair of your head, then how is it that you could ever imagine yourself insignificant? Is that not a lie from the pits of hell? How much evil and mischief has the enemy of your soul been able to achieve by simply convincing you that you have no worth and are insignificant?

How many arguments between a man and wife have occurred because of the tyranny of perceived insignificance and one does not feel “worth,” within the marriage? How many men and woman have committed adultery because of this? Sibling rivalry that can last a lifetime because one feels less worth than the other. And the ultimate tragedy, how many suicides have occurred because of this feeling , this lie,this lack of worth? What is the answer to this problem that goes deep into the heart of the psyche? How does one overcome the tragedy of insecurity and lack of worth? Of course there are  tens of thousands of books on this subject and it keeps psycho analysts in full-time employment around the world. Yet there is no cure in the natural world. It is the realm of the supernatural that we find our answer. Calvary. You see, God so loved you that He gave His only Son for you. Can you grasp it? I am going to suggest that it cannot be grasped by the natural mind. It has to be accepted, but more than that it has to be experienced. The knowledge of Calvary, and I use that word in the Biblical sense of “knowing,” is what transforms us. Joseph did not “know,” Mary until after Jesus was born. The word in that sense means an intimate physical encounter, intercourse. To “know,” God is something so much deeper than any relationship we could ever have with another human being and it comes by revelation and Inspiration by the Holy Spirit.

You can read the Gospel accounts of Calvary a thousand times and you may understand it in your head. Yet, if it never gets into your heart, the place of damage, you will remain babes in Christ and your road to wholeness and understanding of who you are in Christ will be blocked. Cry out to the Lord to give you a divine revelation of Calvary, of what it cost Jesus, of what it cost your heavenly Father, and then when you ” see” it you will know that you have worth, not based on humanism or self-esteem, but based on “Christ in you, the hope and glory.” Your worth comes from the fact that He knows you and that He loves you and that He died for you, it comes from nothing else. If you make this the foundation of your life, then you can begin to build something that will stand. He loves you and you are the apple of His eye, you must learn this, experience this and embrace this. When you do, you will begin to break the chains that bind you and become Christ like. It will affect every area of your life, every person in your life and you will begin to change the world around you. Do not let the tyranny of insignificance chain you down, you are a child of the Living God and He loves His children equally. You are more than a conqueror in Christ, you are mighty men and women of valor. You may not see it right now, but God sees it.
