You Are a Masterpiece

Recently, we stood atop Arizona’s Mogollon Rim. Before us was a spectacular view of pine-covered mountains and valleys. The smells and sounds were a far cry from the city surroundings we’d left behind.

That view, along with late night stargazing, is just a sampling of God’s handiwork. But, believe it or not, the creation of you as a human being is far superior. Only people were created to share God’s image, made in His likeness and reflecting His nature (Genesis 1:26).

Take a look in a mirror. Then, like David, speak these words to your Creator Father God:
“Oh yes, you shaped me first inside, then out; you formed me in my mother’s womb.
I thank you, High God—you’re breathtaking! Body and soul, I am marvelously made!
I worship in adoration—what a creation!
You know me inside and out, you know every bone in my body;
You know exactly how I was made, bit by bit, how I was sculpted from nothing into something.
Like an open book, you watched me grow from conception to birth; all the stages of my life were spread out before you,
The days of my life all prepared before I’d even lived one day” (Psalm 139:13-16).

God created you, different from all others, yet one of His own. He has given personality, talents, and abilities unique to you that no one else can duplicate. God knows you intimately, your strengths and weakness, and He loves you.

But He’s not finished. The Apostle Paul explained, “There has never been the slightest doubt in my mind that the God who started this great work in you would keep at it and bring it to a flourishing finish on the very day Christ Jesus appears” (Philippians 1:6).

Your challenge today is to allow the Creator to continue ‘working’ in you, surrendering to the Master as He works on His masterpiece.

Looking forward to a flourishing finish!
