God Made You To Be Pefect
Psalm 139:13-14 “You formed the way I think and feel. You put me together in my mother's womb. I praise you because you made me in such a wonderful way. I know how amazing that was!”
Psalm 139:17-18 “Your thoughts are beyond my understanding. They cannot be measured! If I could count them, they would be more than the grains of sand.”
Have you ever created something and took a step back and felt proud of yourself? Proud in a non-sinful way, of course. A landscape that came perfectly together. A wreath that looks just like the one online. A piece of pottery that had no visible flaws. A living room of your dreams. A piece of art that you imagined in your mind and perfectly transposed onto a canvas. It fills you with a sense of accomplishment. You realize you put together something that is really special.
Did you know that God feels that way about you? When He knit you together in your mother's womb, He took a step back and knew He created someone perfect. Perfect for the time period you would be in. Perfect to do the work He planned for you to do. Perfect to be in the family He would put you with.
He didn't make any mistakes when He made you. He put a lot of thought in to making you just right. He knew your temper could be controlled and harnessed to be passionate for helping the helpless. He knew your love of talking could one day put you on a stage to tell others about Him. He knew your love of learning could teach young minds. He knew your love of music could be used to help others worship Him. He knew your love of medicine could help you heal the sick in His name. He knew your blemishes would make you relate to others. He knew your struggles would be a reminder to you that you need Him.
You were God's idea. Your days were planned out to bring Him glory. Your gifts were given for a purpose. Your flaws were calculated for His glory.
You are God's masterpiece. Are you letting Him use you for what He made you to do? Or are you using what He gave you for your own gain? For His kingdom or for your kingdom?
You were made for a purpose. God made you exactly how He wanted you to be. He didn't just make you half way and let random biology take over the rest. You aren't a mix of chromosome and cells made by chance. You were crafted. Made perfect. By the God of the universe. Don't underestimate yourself. By doing that, you are underestimating God. Don't question your beauty. God looks at you and is proud of what He has made.
Remember that you were formed by God on purpose. Live with that on your mind. Set out to use your gifts for Him. He loves you. Stay near Him. If you aren't sure what your gifts are are, ask Him to show you. If you know what they are, start using them for their God-given purpose.
And remember, God made You to be perfectly You.
