Bestselling author Joyce Meyer introduces a new gift book series that combines her life-changing messages with a beautiful devotional format.
Being the Person God Made You to Be is easy when Joyce Meyer shares how God taught her to know herself... and accept herself in the same way that He does. "Here is the good news -- you can be delivered from the power of rejection!"
During my years of ministry, I have discovered that most people really don't like themselves. This is a very big problem, much bigger than one might think initially. It is certainly not God's will for His children to feel this way. Rather, it is a part of Satan's attempt to ruin us.
If we don't get along with ourselves, we won't get along with other people. When we reject ourselves, it may seem to us that others reject us as well. Relationships are a vital part of our lives. How we feel about ourselves is a determining factor in our success in life and in relationships.
Our self-image is the inner picture we carry of ourselves. If what we see is not healthy, not true to Scripture, we will suffer from fear, insecurity, and various misconceptions about ourselves. For many years, it devastated my own life.
God is a God of hearts. He sees our heart, not just the exterior shell we live in (the flesh) that seems to get us into so much trouble. Our Father in heaven never intended for us to feel bad about ourselves. He wants us to know ourselves and yet accept ourselves in the same way that He does.
