I love the New Living Translation of this verse, “For we are God’s masterpiece”! You and I have been created by our perfect God as a masterpiece! “So God created mankind in his own image, in the image of God he created them; male and female he created them. God saw all that he had made, and it was very good.” Gen. 1:27,31. You are not a mistake! No matter what the world has told you, no matter what label others have given you, to God you are a masterpiece.
Every little detail of who you are was painstakingly thought out and planned before you were ever created. Every nuance that makes you who you are is by choice. Drink that truth in for a moment and let that empower you today.
And He created us with a purpose. He wrote the story of our accomplishments before we ever started the journey. When I think that I don’t measure up, I am choosing to use the world’s scale of comparison.When I feel like a failure it is because I am judging my performance through the wrong frame of reference. Our Father doesn’t ever see us as less than the best. He never looks at us and thinks that we have failed Him. He create us to do great things and orchestrates our lives so that we can and will accomplish what He has planned.
- If you really believed this, what would it do to your level of worry?
- If you fully embraced this, what would it mean for your fear of failure?
- How could this truth change the way you approach life today?
Go therefore and be in mission today. For you are a work of great value, a masterpiece in action!
