Increasingly I am coming across people who are battling with their self image. While I understand our struggle in this area, it is one of the things that the Bible speaks a lot about. God believes in us. God loves us. God created us.
When Jeremiah was wrestling with his identity, God spoke these words to him:
"Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, before you were born I set you apart; I appointed you as a prophet to the nations." - Jeremiah 1:4-5
My friend, you are not an accident - God knew what He was doing when you were created.
