Do I really need to explain what the feeling of “not good enough” means?
Because we’ve all been there at times.
Those times you were pretty sure that the points and laughter were directed towards you.
That time you thought he or she loved you, but it turned out that was not the case.
The instance from 20 years ago that still flies through your mind every so often, lingeringly floating, as if to say:
I suppose that I could choose a more elaborate word.
Can I tell you that if you are a Christian, all of the above are lies from Satan himself?
God’s Word declares the opposite is true.
You are desired and chased after by the most High God.
You are accepted in the beloved.
You are made worthy through the blood of Jesus.
No better ammunition exists to fire at the lies of Satan than God’s Word.
So I thought I’d share my go-to Bible verse list for when I just don’t feel “good enough.” Perhaps someone you know could use it too. Here are 10 Bible verses for when you feel not good enough.
