You are His most valuable creation. Jesus said that He takes care of the birds of the air and the lilies of the field and you are far more valuable than they are. When was the last time you said, "I am valuable to God"? Stop a moment and say those words. Go ahead and try it. Was it hard to say? Is it hard to believe? What about practicing that lifestyle?
Many times our problem is devaluing ourselves before the One who greatly and highly values us. We are of great worth and highest esteem in the eyes of the Almighty God. I guess it is time to look at life through His eyes and not ours. Notice Matt. 6:25-34. Note what He says about worry and the importance God places on His promise to care for us His valuable creation. Jesus said not to live like pagans! Therefore recognize your special value and "never fear because God is near".
