We are who God made us to be
By: Brad Peterson
I’m all about encouraging you!
You are a masterpiece! When God made you, God really DID break the mold. There is no other person who is like you.
Knowing that we are unique should humble us.
It goes even further, He can use everybody He creates.
God can look at you and can see what you will become before you have actually become it.
Greg Laurie said,
We look at ourselves and say, “I don’t get it. This doesn’t look like a perfect person. This doesn’t look like a work of beauty.”
But you are a work in progress. It is a process that doesn’t happen overnight. It is going to take all of your life on Earth. It won’t be completely finished until you get to heaven.
You may not feel like a masterpiece. There are times when we feel anything but! Living life here on this planet is not always easy. But the Lord wants us to know how much He loves us and that He is with us even in times of despair.
If you feel abandoned today, please know that God is there.
One of my favorites is Jeremiah. The Lord appointed Jeremiah as a prophet before he was even born. God said that He formed Jeremiah in the womb and that He made him anything He wanted Jeremiah to be.
You are who God wanted you to be. He has a plan for you. BUT WHAT IS THAT PLAN?
Very clearly in Scripture God says that He has a unique work for you to do. In Ephesians 2:10 it says “we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand so that we would walk in them.”
To my kids I say and believe, to you I say and believe,
You are God’s masterpiece and He has blessed us with you. We don’t know His plans for you, but we trust His heart and seek Him. Now our daily prayer is asking God to use your life for His glory. You have been lovingly created and molded just the way He planned.
