What You’re Worth by Mandisa
“You gotta fight, stand up strong. You got a fire, so let it burn on. Show ‘em what you’re worth…You gotta roar, get up and shout. Ain’t gonna blend in; go on and stand out. Show ‘em what you’re worth…I’ve been created for a purpose that is solely His—know what I’m worth—aye! Don’t plan on playing games. I’m destiny’s child. I say His name—Jesus, you’re the only one. Stick closer than a friend and watch that fire deep inside you never die again.”
Sometimes the world tells us that we’re worthless or treats us like we’re worthless, but this song says—don’t believe it! Here’s the TRUTH: We are worth everything in God’s eyes! We are precious to Him and he wants us to find our worth in Him, not in what the world says is important. This song is a battle cry to fight back against the lies that come at us from every side. It is a cheer that says stand up, let the fire in you burn bright! Hear this personally then play this song for all the people you know who are listening to the world’s lies and questioning their worth. Let’s link arms with one another and with Jesus and get busy showing the world what we are worth in His eyes!
Matthew 10:29-31 “Are not two sparrows sold for a penny? Yet not one of them will fall to the ground outside your Father’s care. And even the very hairs of your head are numbered. So don’t be afraid; you are worth more than many sparrows.”
Questions: Have you ever questioned your worth because of the lies of the world? What helps you be strong and fight back when the world tells you lies about your worth? Who will you encourage to find their worth in the truth and love of the Lord instead of the lies of the world?
Prayer Power: Dear Lord, thank you that you love me so much that you even know the number of hairs on my head. Thank you for loving me so much that you sent your son Jesus to die for me that I may live with you eternally. Thank you that I can find my worth in you. Protect me and those I love from the lies of the world.
