To listen to the blog post “10 Encouraging Bible Verses for Women Who Struggle with Self Worth” over reading it just click the play button below.
I want to share Bible verses about self worth and because simply reading the Bible verses are not enough, we have to take a deep dive into the scriptures of self worth so that you can actually apply them to yourself. In the world of social media, photoshop, and superficiality your self esteem may be suffering.
But that is why it is important not to look at those outside things to define our self worth but to actually look to God for that. Because that is where real self worth comes from. Also, don’t forget to check out my video on self worth below. And don’t forget to subscribe to my channel by clicking here.
1. God Made You
For you formed my inward parts; you knitted me together in my mother’s womb. I praise you, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made. Wonderful are your works; my soul knows it very well. My frame was not hidden from you, when I was being made in secret, intricately woven in the depths of the earth. Psalm 139:13-15
God does not just slap things together and hope for the best. But he took time crafting you and making you to be exactly the way that you are. The things about yourself that you see are mistakes may not be mistakes at all, but you must learn how to see them as valuable and things that were intentionally created by God himself.
2. What Matters To God
But the Lord said to Samuel, “Do not look on his appearance or on the height of his stature, because I have rejected him. For the Lord sees not as man sees: man looks on the outward appearance, but the Lord looks on the heart. 1 Samuel 16:7
This is one of the better Bible verses about self worth that I love because this verse was spoken by God in regard to David. Samuel began to look at all of David’s older, stronger, and more attractive brothers and felt that they were better simply because of what they looked like.
But the fact of the matter is that we know David for being king, for slaying Goliath, for being a man after God’s own heart. We do not know any of those other brothers no matter how fine they were. Their attractiveness and muscles are not what mattered to God, but it was how God could use them that made the real difference. Also, check out my video below on David and what to do when people don’t believe in you.
3. You Are A Queen
But you are a chosen race, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people for his own possession, that you may proclaim the excellencies of him who called you out of darkness into his marvelous light. 1 Peter 2:9
I have an entire blog on not forgetting your royal position that you can click here to read. But the fact of the matter is that being a child of the highest God means that you are royalty. And it is very disrespectful to God to doubt your self worth or to behave in a way that is less than what you were intended.
Can you imagine a queen or a princess not even knowing that she was royalty and she is going around throwing her crown on the ground and doubting her own existence? How jacked up is that. When you do not acknowledge your own self worth that is exactly what you are doing.
You are not remembering who it is that you belong to and you are not understanding that you are royalty, my dear. And if you are a queen then you best start acting like it. Also, check out my video below on how the daughters of the king have forgotten their royal position.
4. You Are Not Flawed
You are altogether beautiful, my love; there is no flaw in you. Song of Solomon 4:7
This is probably one of the most straight forward Bible verses about self worth because it is literally telling you that you are beautiful, and you are not flawed even when you think you are. I want you to read my separate blog on how these women used their flaws to actually step into their purpose which you can click here to read.
Because the fact of the matter is that the things that you see as flaws in yourself may be the very things that may cause you to stand out from the crowd and therefore are not really flaws at all. But rather unique attributes yourself that make us stand out and that makes us different. So, try to view your flaws not as things you hate but as something you can embrace.
5. Your Worth Is Not External
Do not let your adorning be external—the braiding of hair and the putting on of gold jewelry, or the clothing you wear— but let your adorning be the hidden person of the heart with the imperishable beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which in God’s sight is very precious. 1 Peter 3:3-4
In the world of people spending a bunch of money for no apparent reason whatsoever to be flashy on social media is literally belittling yourself. Do not get me wrong I do believe that you should present your best self to the world which you can watch my video down below for more on that.
But your worth does not come from how much money you can spend on clothes, what name brands you are wearing, and simply being beautiful on the outside while being empty on the inside. Expensive items do not make you beautiful or enhance yourself worth. Maybe in the eyes of the world, it does but not in the eyes of God.
Focus on what is valuable in the eyes of God and that is where you will find your true self worth and value that is not so easily shaken by what is going on with the outside.
6. The Hairs On Your Head Are Numbered
Are not five sparrows sold for two pennies? And not one of them is forgotten before God. Why, even the hairs of your head are all numbered. Fear not; you are of more value than many sparrows. Luke 12:6-7
Think about it you have a lot of hair on your head. When I comb my hair, I am not even sure about how many hairs come out of my own head. But God does, so imagine how valuable you are to him if he knows how many hairs on your head there are. So how can you possibly not understand your own self worth when God places so much value on even the little hair particles that are on your head. Think about it.
7. Don’t Fix What God Has Already Put His Paint Brush On
Keep your life free from love of money, and be content with what you have, for he has said, “I will never leave you nor forsake you.” Hebrews 13:5
Plastic surgery is alive and well in today’s world. I do not want to get into if plastic surgery is right or if it is wrong but rather what is your goal behind it. I have seen and probably you too have seen that so many women get plastic surgery to the point that they are not even recognizable any more. They do not even look like themselves. And when you fall into the role of not being content with what you have and what you look like then you are going to keep trying to find ways to fix yourself.
I once had a friend who suffered from a cleft palate and had plastic sugary to fix it and her nose. That is NOT what I am talking about. I am talking about looking at yourself in the mirror feeling like you need a nose job, chin job, butt job, stomach job, lip job, breast implants, and Botox.
At that point is there anything you even like about yourself? And if you get into the role of always wanting to fix something about yourself then you are not being content with what you have and in your own eyes you will never be enough and you will always be trying to fix.
8. Don’t Disrespect Where The Holy Spirit Lives
For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand, that we should walk in them. Ephesians 2:10
When we accept the Lord into our lives the Holy Spirit comes to live within us which is why the Bible says that we are not our own and that we were bought with a price (1 Corinthians 6:20). A heavy price I might add. So, when you are looking into Bible verses about self worth know this, the Holy Spirit is not going to dwell in some unworthy vessel. God lives in you because he sees you worthy so, therefore, see yourself as such.
9. You were created in God’s Image
So God created man in his own image, in the image of God he created him; male and female he created them. Genesis 1:27
I highly suggest that you watch my video below on understanding the trinity because it will give you a better understanding of how we were created in God’s image. We are not like animals running around in the sense that we are special because we are the only species that are created in God’s image. The things you can do, how you think, and the abilities you have are from the power that was invested in us by God. So, take heart in that.
10. Your Past Does Not Define You
Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation. The old has passed away; behold, the new has come. 2 Corinthians 5:17
There are many times that we suffer from low self worth because of what we have done in the past and we feel that our life is not what we want it to be or maybe we feel that we are not living up to our true potential.
But with each moment that has happened, it is in the past. Meaning that you don’t need to continue to live in condemnation of your past or the mistakes that you have made. Each moment is a new opportunity to re-create yourself and God is not punishing you are defining your self worth based on what you have done on the past. So neither should you.
