You are not a number.
Has anyone ever made you think you were?
Have you ever thought you didn’t matter to anyone…especially to God?
Today I just wanted to tell you…and remind myself…
God creates masterpieces- art of a form we can’t always comprehend.
You are fearfully and wonderfully made….
He took dust and created a man. Who would have thought man could be made from simple dirt? Yet, dust became a form to hold the soul of a human being- one God loves deeply-because He created this soul. Life was breathed into the dust and God’s creation began to breathe.
You are sculpted by God’s grace from nothing…
The work of the sculptor molds and shapes the clay that you are. He smooths and tapers each curve and slant for the exact purpose He intends.
The curves reveal His steadfast love and offer contours of hope for others to see.
Only the Sculptor can finish the masterpiece.
You are loved by the Almighty God of the universe…
So much that He came down from Heaven to live among us. God loves you so much that He sent His Son to die for you. He loves you so much that even after Jesus paid the price for your sin, He was willing to continue to live within the confines of human flesh as the Holy Spirit.
After walking this world and dying for you, God still wants to live inside of you.
This gift provides reassurance of His love. He doesn’t leave you alone.
Because you are not a number.
I praise you, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made.
Wonderful are your works;
my soul knows it very well. Psalm 139:14
But now, O LORD, you are our Father;
we are the clay, and you are our potter;
we are all the work of your hand. Isaiah 64:8
And I will ask the Father, and he will give you another advocate to help you and be with you forever—the Spirit of truth. The world cannot accept him, because it neither sees him nor knows him. But you know him, for he lives with you and will be in you. Jn. 14:17
No, you are anything but a number.
