PSALM 139:14 “I PRAISE YOU, FOR I AM FEARFULLY AND WONDERFULLY MADE; WONDERFUL ARE YOUR WORKS, MY SOUL KNOWS IT VERY WELL”
I believe that what is said of us from others can alter the perception of who God says we are.
Identity – the fact of being who or what a person or thing is.
We can be Influenced by so many voices. Telling us of how we should look, act, or speak. Society today is telling us that we are not fearfully and wonderfully made but we may have been a mistake, or an accident.
YOU WERE BORN ON PURPOSE FOR A PURPOSE!
THE WORD OF GOD CLEARLY TELLS US THAT WE ARE FEARFULLY AND WONDERFULLY MADE AND THAT HIS WORKS ARE WONDERFUL.
MY NOSE — NOT A MISTAKE, FEARFULLY AND WONDERFULLY MADE
MY BODY— FEARFULLY AND WONDERFULLY MADE
MY PERSONALITY – FEARFULLY AND WONDERFULLY MADE
— JUST AS A POTTER PUTS A PIECE OF CLAY ON THE WHEEL, THERE’S A PURPOSE BEHIND EVERY INDENTION OF THAT CLAY.
WHEN GOD FORMS SOMETHING HE SHAPES IT SPECIFICALLY FOR HIS PURPOSE.
WE ARE ALL MADE DIFFERENTLY WITH UNIQUE SKILLS, PERSONALITIES AND TRAITS THAT GOD USES FOR HIS GOOD AND GLORY. HE DIDN’T CREATE YOU ALONG WITH THE MASSES, HE IS INTENTIONAL WITH ALL THAT HE DOES.
WE ARE HIS MASTERPIECE
“FOR WE ARE HIS WORKMANSHIP, CREATED UB CHRIST JESUS FOR GOOD WORKS, WHICH GOD PREPARED BEFOREHAND, THAT WE SHOULD WALK IN THEM.” — Ephesians 2:10
— WHEN THE WORLD TELLS US THAT WE ARE DEFINED BY OUR STRUGGLES, ACCOMPLISHMENTS OR APPEARANCE, HIDE IN GOD — THE AUTHOR AND FINISHER OF OUR LIFE AND SOURCE OF TRUE VALUE IDENTITY AND WORTH. IN HIM ONLY OUR TRUE IDENTITY IS FOUND AND OUR WORTH CAN NEVER BE SHAKEN.
I AM WHO GOD SAYS I AM.
I CAN DO WHAT GOD SAYS I CAN DO.
I CAN BECOME EXACTLY WHAT GOD SAYS I CAN BECOME.
I’M NOT DEFINED BY MY FEELINGS, MY WEAKNESSES, OR MY INCLINATIONS.
I AM COMING OUT OF THE LIES.
I AM COMING INTO THE LIGHT.
I WAS BORN ON PURPOSE FOR A PURPOSE!
