10 For we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.

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!

    If I believe what would it do to my worry level?

    I would live out Phil. 4 do not be anxious of nothing but with prayer and supplication I would make my requests known to my daddy….

    Fear of failure?

    I would be knowledgeable on every fearless scripture . I would keep in remembrance that he never sees me as a failure. I would ask him before I do anything.

    How would this truth change the way you approach life today?

    I wouldn’t compare to others who seem more talented then I am. I wouldn’t envy what they have and want to just give up! I would take a spiritual gift test and hone in on the specific gifts I am called to and then unleash the Holy Spirit on my mind. So that I really start believing I have the mind of Christ and hold the thoughts, feelings, and purposes of His heart. I would start looking at each person different. Seeing them how God sees them making it easier to approach in love and share Jesus with them.

    Okay, thank you Jesus for helping me activate this plan by faith with action. You have helped me take some steps and I pray for you continue to draw me in Lord. I truly want to believe I am your masterpiece. I shed tears just knowing you think that way about me. I am in Awe how you care for such a misfit, but I understand you see me through the eyes of Christ. Help bring out the real me more and more each day as I learn of you and continue to renew my mind in your word. I love you father! Thank you! In Jesus name Amen!
