Do you know what you are worth?

My servant,’ I will make you like a signet ring, for I have chosen you,'” declares the LORD of hosts. Haggai 2:23

I have been rejected by a significant family member all my life.  I have literally spent a lifetime trying to gain their approval and would do anything for their acceptance and I always questioned what was wrong with me, why was I not good enough.   When the Lord led me to this scripture in Haggai, I wanted to know what the significance of a signet ring was and I found that in European countries they were a sign of noble status and they were a symbol of power and authority.  Signet rings were typically worn on pinky fingers and had engraving.  I realized that day that I am chosen by God and that He loves and accepts me unconditionally, as if he wears me as an engraving on His hand…..and if I am not chosen or accepted, my value has not changed.  You and I do not have strive to get the acceptance or approval from anyone.  Because of God, today I rest in my place of value and you can too, just receive His gift of unconditional love and acceptance.  You are so valuable, that He sent His only son to die for you.   But you are chosen, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a person for God’s own possession. 1Peter 2:9
