Dare to Live in the Miracle of Who You Are (December 3, 2013)

Ephesians 2:10 For we are God’s workmanship, created in Christ Jesus, to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.

When we look at ourselves with the wrong eyes we lose perspective.  We either see ourselves in a reflection of perfection, proud of our success and accomplishments, or we look at ourselves with self-loathing searching for our significance.  The proper way to see ourselves is to look through God’s eyes where we find our significance and purpose in Him.  He does not see our mistakes and failures.  He sees the person He created and a reflection of His Son.

“It’s easy to take our life for granted, and when we do, we rarely live on purpose.  Instead, we live just to get by or to make ourselves more significant.  Truth is, you can’t possibly be more loved or significant than you are at this very moment.  You don’t have to be doing something to be significant; significance comes from being somebody.  You already are somebody–a woman created by God for His purposes.”¹

Today, we need to dare to believe that God created us for a purpose and made us significant.

[Read Jude]

Jude 20-21 But you, dear friends, must build each other up in your most holy faith, pray in the power of the Holy Spirit, and await the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ, who will bring you eternal life.  In this way, you will keep yourselves safe in God’s love.

Father God,
Enable me to see myself through Your eyes. Help me live in the truth of who You say I am. Amen.
