ACHIEVE GREATNESS WITH YEMI AND BIMBO DAVIDS

Your Esteem Comes From God
Scripture Reference: “[No one] for there is no distinction between Jew and Greek. The same Lord is Lord over all [of us] and He generously bestows His riches upon all who call upon Him [in faith]” Romans 10:12, AMPC
You don’t need a man to affirm you before you believe that God loves you. You don’t need to be connected to a man, by being in a relationship with him before you accept God’s promises. Some ladies believe that to be great you have to be married to a great man. I am reminded of the story of a former first lady of America. She had previously been in a relationship with someone before dating and marrying the man who eventually became an American president. She was been interviewed by the press one day and someone commented about her former boyfriend was now a handyman. The person told her she was lucky she had married her husband, that is, the president, otherwise, she wouldn’t be a first lady but the wife of a handyman, but she turned and told him, ‘If I had married him, he would have been the president’.
That is mind-blowing and still challenges me. She believed in herself so much that she said any man she married would have ended up great. That is the mentality we should have as covenant people. We are blessed to be a blessing to the people around us especially our spouses. This, however, can only be done when you see yourself as God sees you. You don’t have to be inferior to any man or accept all sorts of abuse just because of money, attention and the like.
I know you may have experienced untold pain and suffering, abuse and poverty. Only God can restore you and make you fulfilled. Please believe with me and accept that you are not left out of the Abrahamic blessing. He doesn’t discriminate based on gender, race or whatever. The same God is rich unto all that call upon Him.
Daily Digest: Real success in life is being exactly who you were created to be and nothing more.
Prayer: Lord, I pray that I would stop trying to find my identity in anything other than being Your child, a child of the King and a citizen in the Kingdom of God. Thank You for this amazing grace in my life!
