If you’re living by the compliments of others to lift you up, the criticism of others will also bring you down.
Stop allowing others to validate you. Know who you are, not who others say you are.
You are who God says you are – a child of God! Joint-heirs with Christ! Fearfully and wonderfully made! More than a conqueror!
Romans 8:16-17 (KJV) – the Spirit itself beareth witness with our spirit, that we are the children of God: and if children, then heirs: heirs of God, and join-heirs with Christ; if so be that we suffer with him, that we may be also gloried together.
Psalm 139:14 (KJV) – I will praise thee; for I am fearfully and wonderfully made: marvelous are thy works; and that my soul knoweth right well.
Romans 8:36-37 (KJV) – as it is written, for thy sake we are killed all lthe day long; we are accounted as sheep for the slaughter. Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us.
