The first step in learning to like yourself is:
- Realize that God approves of you
The most important step is you must realize that God approves of you. In the book of Jeremiah God speaks to him and says; Before I formed you in the womb I knew [and] approved of you [as My chosen instrument], and before you were born I separated and set you apart, consecrating you; [and] I appointed you as a prophet to the nations (Jeremiah 1:5). In this scripture, we read that God placed his stamp of approval on Jeremiah, even before conception. This is the same for you. You may not be chosen as prophet to the nations. However, you are His chosen instrument for a good work. God created you with His own hands, you are His masterpiece. (See Ephesians 2:10) You are important to Him. Therefore, you must not treat yourself as an inferior work.
