Fearfully and Wonderfully Made
How different would our attitudes and self-image be if we saw ourselves like God sees us? He says His thoughts about us are more numerous than all the grains of sand and that He knit us together in our mother’s womb. Even before we were born, the Lord had a great plan for our lives and loved us with a love greater than even our mothers had. He calls us beautiful and made us just the way He wanted. We are the apple of His eye. Out of this entire universe, we are the only part of His creation He called “very good.” He loves us just as we are, but so much more than that, He wants to help us become better. He is the Potter, we are the clay, and He is constantly shaping us, through our circumstances, our experiences,the times of our lives, both good and bad, into a vessel worthy of the service of the King. The best part is that we didn’t have to do anything to make Him love us like that. We didn’t have to do anything to be seen as “very good.” He just does, and nothing we do can ever change that. Take a moment and praise Him for being “fearfully and wonderfully made,” and be thankful for the vessel He’s given you. It’s unlike anything else in the world, and He wouldn’t have it any other way.
