However, you are able to do this because of Christ’s death for you. He paid for your sin, and His perfect work is counted as yours.

4. See Yourself as a Star

We must understand that we are not the same as anyone else. We are each of us stars in our own universe, made up of our own atoms. We all have our own journey to go on. We have our own unique gifts and skills that God uses to shine his light on the earth. We must be willing to let those gifts shine through us and not try to compare ourselves to others.

When we see ourselves as stars, we can let go of the need to compare and judge. We can be content with who we are and trust that our unique gifts are being used by our Father to illuminate this world. We can reflect our true star energy into this world to create and change it, stepping confidently into who we are as God’s invincible creation. If you follow the Word of God, it will lead you to Jesus Christ. This is what you need in this dark world, a light to guide you.

It is easy to get sucked into the world’s system and become lost. It is important to stay in the Word of God and not be deceived by the many things that are thrown at us.

He is the one who can protect you from the pitfalls of this world and make your life worth while here. He will help you see the value of your life and what is most important in this life and the next. He will teach you to look beyond your own shortcomings and failures and instead see your own potential and the value of those around you. He will help you to love God and love others like he does.

Seeing ourselves as stars can help us remember that God’s eyes are always open and that He is ready to serve. When we feel a nudging to serve the homeless, for example, God is opening doors for us to do so, just as He opened the eyes of the people in Deuteronomy. Remember, He doesn’t promise a new house or more money, but that He will honor them by opening doors for them to serve Him.
