WOBS ~ Leah ~ Saturday Focus on Worthy

“ASK GOD to help you base your identity on your relationship with HIM rather than what you see in the mirror.”

This is what struck me the most when I read Friday’s section on Leah, plus I know that some of us seem to struggle with being worthy in the eyes of God.  So let me clear something up for us here…none of us is worthy, only Jesus was and is worthy in the eyes of God!

Praise God for the Jesus filter!

When God looks at us He is seeing us through the filter of Christ’s death on the cross.  We are deemed worthy only through the position that Jesus took on the cross and we become righteous through the condition of our hearts.

And just like God uses Jesus as a filter when He looks at us…Jesus needs to be the filter we use when we look at ourselves, and when we look at others.

If I don’t have my Jesus filter in place then I am going to judge myself, and the people around me, by the standards of the world.

We can only be confident of our worthiness when our focus is on the very definition of our worth…JESUS!

Jesus didn’t just save my life, He made my life worth saving!!!

Jesus you are mercy. Jesus you are justice.
Jesus you are worthy. That is what you are.
You died alone to save me. You rose so you could raise
me. You did this all to make me a chosen child of God.

Worthy is the Lamb that once was slain,
to receive all glory, power, and praise.
For with your blood, your purchased us for God.
Jesus you are worthy. That is what you are.

Perfect sacrifice crushed by God for us.
Bearing in your hurt all that I deserve.
Misjudged for my misdeeds you suffered silently.
The only guiltless man in all of history.

Justice and mercy.

Oaks Of Righteousness

Isaiah 61:1-3 "The spirit of the Lord God is upon me, because the Lord has annointed me; He has sent me to bring good news to the oppressed, to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives, and release to the prisoners; to proclaim the year of the Lords's favor, and the day of vengeance of our God; and to comfort all who mourn; to provide for those who mourn in Zion -- to give them a garland instead of ashes, the oil of gladness instead of mourning, the mantle of praise instead of a faint spirit. They will be called Oaks of Righteousness, the planting of the Lord, to display His glory.
