Listen, O’ daughter, consider and give ear: Forget your people and your father’s house. The King (God) is enthralled by your beauty; Honor Him for He is your Lord.” Psalm 45:10-11, NIV
Why is it that we dwell on the negative things said about us more than the positive? Maybe this is not a struggle for you, but I think most of us tend to FORGET the uplifting words spoken over us and meditate on the destructive ones. BUT NOT ANYMORE! God clearly states above that we are to FORGET what people and even what our own family may have said about us! God declares that He is enthralled with our beauty and that we can honor Him by choosing to think and meditate on what He says about us.
We give “honor” to people when we allow their opinion of us to influence the way we feel about ourselves. The problem is that we often “honor” the wrong people, all the while, God tells us – we are the apple of His eye and that we do not need to be afraid for He has ransomed us and called us by name – God declares to us today, “YOU ARE MINE” (Psalm 17:8, Isaiah 43:1).
So, let me ask you, “What will your Valentine’s day be like if you only think about what God says about you?”(Selah – pause and think about that).
Today God gives you something better than roses or candy – He gives you His eternal love and attention. Let’s answer, “yes” to God’s invitation to “Be HIS” this Valentines Day. Choose to honor God by meditating on the fact that He is enthralled with your beauty and deeply in love with you!
“Lord, forgive me for honoring the wrong people in my life. I choose to honor You by meditating on what You say about me. I desire to give You my heart today. I will “be Yours” forever. I ask that you remove from my memory hurtful words spoken over me. I believe that You are enthralled with my beauty today. Thank you for being the best valentine any woman could ever have.” Amen.
