As children of God, we must know that we have been formed by God’s hands, dreamed up in His heart, and placed in the world for His glory. When we believe that, we will begin to realise that we can confidently step into each day knowing who we are. Knowing that our identity is not found in the opinions of others or the likes we get on Facebook, will change the way we view ourselves. When we know that our identity is found in the Saviour of the world, then we will approach each obstacle in life with boldness instead of apprehension.
The realisation that the creator of the universe chose to create me in His image, is a mind-blowing thought. The fact that God Almighty wants to have a personal relationship with little old me, is something that befuddles me, but something that also makes me realise that I am not worthless. The very idea that I have been created for His glory, makes me determined never to be complacent in my relationship with God. If Jesus Christ chose to die for my sins, then I choose to live for His glory.
No matter what the world chooses to believe, let us never fade away in the background because we don’t want to offend anyone who believes differently. We are no longer slaves to fear, for we are children of God. Let’s never cower away from what we believe in the name of acceptance. Let’s stand up for the truth, in the name of Jesus Christ.
Have an amazing morning, afternoon, or evening, wherever you may be. May God bless and keep you. And may He make His face shine upon you.
