Following on from this week’s post about the good gifts that God has for His Saints, I am going to share a picture which my friend Deb received which may bring some further insight.
Deb had a picture of a very large retail store which was stocked full of loads of items on the shelves. There were rows and rows of shelves packed full of lovely items as far as she could see and she knew she could pick absolutely anything in the store as a gift from God. Instead of choosing something from the shelves though she headed down to the bargain basement to the cheap, reduced items.
She suddenly asked herself what was she doing. Why when she could have anything in the store was she headed down there to the bargain basement. Why was she settling for less than the best God was offering her? This picture speaks of self-worth and believing that we are not deserving of God’s best gifts. We settle for the crumbs from His banqueting table rather than take our seat at the table and enjoy the feast He provides for us.
Does this picture strike a chord? Do you struggle to accept the best that God wants for you. Some of God’s children don’t believe that they are worthy to receive such good gifts and blessings from God. The Lord is saying – Yes you are. He wants you to have His best. You are His child. It’s time for us to get out of the bargain basement mentality.
We as God’s children are worth so much more than the items left in the bargain basement. God has the best in store (excuse the pun) for His children. Let us change our mindsets and bring them into alignment with God’s thinking. He is not a bargain basement God. He has the best in store for you.

It is humbling to know and meditate on the worth our heavenly Father has put on us through the gift of Jesus Christ. And thank you for choosing to follow my blog. I hope it encourages you in your walk with the Lord.

That was a strong punch right on target!
So true… why go for bargains when God gives us the best?
