I Am Fashioned by God
Your hands have made and fashioned me; give me understanding that I may learn your commandments.
You Are Special
There is something special that separates you from the rest of the animal kingdom. Sure, you share much of the same genetic material, but this one distinction makes you unique. You were fashioned by God’s hand.
The world would have you believe you are simply an accidental combination of two DNA strands. They would say your life is nothing more than a genetic accident. God’s word tells a completely different story.
You are the result of a loving God, crafting you for His purposes. “Fashioned” is the picture of a sculptor carefully molding a lump of clay until it is just the way he wants it. He continues to mold the clay until it is the perfect size and shape for his purposes.
God didn’t just make you and say, “Good enough.” God carefully crafted you until you were just perfect for the His work and purpose for you.
Today you can celebrate who you and are how you look because God created and fashioned you. You are His handiwork.
So many people never learn to accept themselves. They spend their lives wishing they were someone else. They look in the mirror and wish they were taller or shorter, had straight hair or curly hair. They think they would like themselves if they had a smaller nose or weighed less.
However, when you understand that you are just the way God intended you to be, you can accept and celebrate who you are. The screwdriver and the hammer look different because each has a different purpose. God created you for a purpose, and He made you to fit that purpose.
Instead of wishing you were taller, shorter, thinner, or heavier, why not celebrate the fact that God made you the way you are so you would fit perfectly into His plan for your life.
Let’s review that promise one more time.
Your hands have made and fashioned me; give me understanding that I may learn your commandments. – Psalm 119:73
You will never experience the meaningful life God intends for you as long as you are wishing you were someone different.
Confess this after me.
- I am handcrafted by God.
- He made me with a purpose and a plan.
- I am not an accident; I am created.
- I was created according to His specifications for His purpose.
- I am made according to His desire, and His desire is for my good.
- Today I celebrate who God fashioned and created me.
In Jesus Name,
I hope these episodes are a blessing to you. Next week we are launching our Partner Program for the ministry. I believe this program will help me better connect with those who support the ministry and allow me to pour into your life. Be looking for the upcoming announcement.
