God created you and said you are good.
Today’s Scripture: Genesis 1:31
The story of creation is a very amazing story. God begins to design the earth and to look over His wonderful creation. When He made a new creature such as the birds of the air and the fishes of the sea, he took a step back to appreciate the work done.
Sometimes, as humans, we tend to keep throwing everything at the wall and hoping something sticks. We are hardly taking a step back to see what we have done and to appreciate it. God took time to enjoy the works of His hands and we should too. (Ecclesiastes 2:24)
Again, many times, you feel worthless, incapable, or absolutely irrelevant, but the Bible says the exact opposite. We are told that God took a look at everything (including you) that he made and he saw that it is very good. You know how a lady applies make up – after she draws her brows, she takes a little step back from the mirror and says, “Hmm, this is good.” Yes, that is exactly how God approves of you. He might not approve of all your actions, but yes, He approves of you and just like great parents approve of their children, even though they do not always approve of everything they do, God approves of you.
So, take a step back to enjoy the works of your hands just like God – examine your work, get rid of the foxes which spoil the vine and always remember that you are beautiful because God made you and God made all things beautiful!
Prayer Point: Dear God, I choose to accept myself and enjoy my work because I am fully aware that you have created me and you do not create trash. Help me to also live my life in ways that would be pleasing to you and you alone in Jesus’ name. Amen.
