I was feeling inadequate.
So many things in front of me to do that I know I'm not good at doing.
Lacking confidence. Unsure. UnABLE.
And then I read this:
You are My masterpiece!
Well, that's probably an exaggeration. Masterpiece might be a little much. How about just saying "My creation?"
(I don't receive compliments very graciously.)
You are My masterpiece! I have made you new in Christ so that you can do the good things I've planned for you long ago. I love you so much and I've given you so much mercy that although you don't have what it takes, I've seated you right next to Me - reigning over every circumstance and every task I've given you. You can do everything I ask if you do it by the strength I'll give you. Eph 2:4-10; Phil 4:13 paraphrased
God trusts me with what He asks me to do. He made me for that purpose. If He asks me to do anything, He always gives me everything I need to do it. Everything. Always. Because I'm His masterpiece - made for Him.
(Because that's what you say when someone gives you a compliment, right?)
I am truly thankful!!
