Yesterday we talked about praying for freedom from what others think of us, but today we’re talking about praying for freedom from what we think of ourselves!! What happens when we have ideals or expectations for ourselves that we can’t meet? What happens when our opinions of ourselves are crippling us or making us obsess over how we “should” be better or different? Today, Heather talks about how when we’re overly worried about our opinion of ourselves, we’ve placed our own opinions of ourselves in a position where they are more important than God’s opinion.
Heather uses her “Book of Heather” illustration today that will help drive home how God spoke to her about finding freedom from her opinions of herself. If your biggest fear is what you think of you–or feeling disappointed in yourself–this episode is going to hit home!
Praying for Freedom from My Opinions of Myself: Verse and Action Step
Verse: 1 Corinthians 4:3, “I care very little if I am judged by you or by any human court; indeed, I do not even judge myself.”
Action Step: Get honest with yourself. Do you have a book of you: a book of rules you try to live by and often elevate to a standard higher than God’s? Ask God to help him elevate HIS opinion of you above your opinion of yourself!
