“And it is God who establishes us with you in Christ, and has anointed us, and who has also put his seal on us and given us his Spirit in our hearts as a guarantee.” 2 Cor. 1:21-22
Have you ever seen a model being prepared for a shoot? They take great care to ensure that the picture is flawless. Perfection is the goal. There must be nothing out of place.
Do you know that was exactly what God was doing when He made you? He took His time to mold and shape you into a creation of beauty. Perfection was the goal.
He wanted nothing out of place. In fact, to ensure that you were really His masterpiece, He did what He did not do with any of His other creations.
He made you in His own image and likeness and He put Himself in you.
Yes, when He breathed into you, He placed His Spirit into you so that you could be like Him. God added value to you by putting His presence in you. And that makes you so very valuable.
God expects that we live our lives like we know that. Do not let others dump their garbage on you. Refuse to encourage with negativity and pessimism. You are too valuable for that.
God added value, His value to you. You are a creation of much value. This is something that we give God praise for today!
