Own YOUR Worth

Own YOUR Worth


Colossians 1:10 (CSB)

So that you may walk worthy of the Lord, fully pleasing to him: bearing fruit in every good work and growing in the knowledge of God.

Once, I looked up what the opposite of worthy was.

I’m not sure what I was expecting with this antonym—maybe worthless or unworthy. They’re both unpleasant ways to describe something or someone.

But actually the opposite is much worse. When I looked up the opposite of worthy, the word that appeared was nothing. Not a blank page, but the literal word: nothing.

It’s astonishing how a single word, “nothing,” can carry such weight and impact on our self-perception. When we contemplate being labeled as “nothing,” it can evoke a profound sense of insignificance and inadequacy. This feeling is often intensified by the Enemy, who skillfully employs this antonym as a weapon against our spiritual growth and self-esteem. The Enemy knows that if he can convince us that we are “nothing,” he can paralyze our faith, hinder our efforts, and isolate us from the love and purpose God has for us.


Reflect on a time when you might have felt like “nothing.

How did these emotions affect your relationship with God and your ability to engage in good works?

What strategies can you employ to counter the Enemy’s attempts to make you believe you are “nothing“?
