You Are God's Masterpiece
These last few days, I’ve had several young ladies reach out to me. After listening and providing encouragement, I felt compelled to share some words of encouragement with you.
At times, we have those low moments where we need uplifting, and we need to have someone pour into us. We need to hear “ I love you,” “it’s okay your mistakes do not define you”- You may also be willing to drown in your negative thoughts and feelings until you hit rock bottom.
Not today, sis! I’m here to pour life into you with scripture and prayer.
Ephesians 2:10 says For we are God’s masterpiece. He has created us anew in Christ Jesus, so we can do the good things he planned for us long ago.
The Merriam-Webster defines masterpiece as a work done with extraordinary skill.
Darling, you are God’s most exquisite piece of work! Yes, you honey! The scripture says you are altogether beautiful, my darling, beautiful in every way. Song of Solomon 4:7
In my NLT Study Bible, it states: If God considers us his masterpieces, we dare not treat ourselves or others with disrespect or as inferior work.
Doesn’t God’s words about us outweigh the opinion of man?
“But sis,” maybe your response.
Listen, I know it can sometimes be difficult to drown out the noise and opinion of others. ( I’ve been there, I have struggled with it as well.) We have all been labeled by our mistakes and past. Truthfully, as we continue to grow in our walk with Christ, we’ll still have that “crowd” that’ll keep calling us by our past. We can’t let that continue to debilitate us. The word of God has to be so deeply rooted and planted so deep, that it immediately combats the lies of the enemy with the belt of truth. However, that reaction comes second nature, the more we spend time, read, and study God’s word.
I want you to know that I love you and I’m praying for you. Fix your crown and put a smile on your face. My sister, you are fearfully and wonderfully made. Psalm 139:14
God created you in his image. Genesis 1:27 Walk like it.
