'...The Lord raises those who are bowed down...' Psalm 146:8 NKJ
Our significance in God can be shaken, especially when we do things that make us think we're unworthy again. But this only exists in our heads. Even when we've messed up, God looks past what we've done and into our future. In the Bible, in John 4, Jesus meets the woman at the well. While the rest of the town slandered her because of her shady past, Jesus offered her a new life.
God knows it's sometimes hard to see beyond what we've done, so He meets us right where we are. At the well, or the workplace, or school, or our worried mind, He's always there. Jesus told the woman this: 'Whoever drinks of this water will thirst again, but whoever drinks of the water that I shall give him will never thirst' (John 4:13-14).
Your significance? You might feel like it's taken a knock, but your self-worth is fulfilled in Jesus - you don't need to keep 'thirsting' after others' approval of you. In fact, God loves to show you that even in your lowest moments, He is there. Psalm 146:8 says 'the Lord raises those who are bowed down'. When you're humble to accept that His way (and He Himself) is the best way forward, He'll pick you up and show you your significance, whenever you've fallen down.
So what now? Let's turn Satan's self-doubt tactic on its head. Write on a piece of paper 'Did God actually say that?' and pocket it. When cruel words come at you, from people or from your own mind, grab that paper, and remember what God really says about you.
