(God Created You Wonderfully)
TO THE BIBLE: Genesis 1:27
“So God created man in His own image; in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them.”
Amongst everything God created, you’re the most beautiful because you’re created in His image and likeness. God created you to look like Him and function like Him. You’re His excellent handiwork, His perfectly-crafted masterpiece! He created you for glory and beauty.
No wonder the Psalmist said, “I will praise You, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made; marvelous are Your works, and that my soul knows very well” (Psalm 139:14).
When you study the account of the Creation, you’ll notice that after God made everything from the first to the fifth day, He looked at what He had made and said, “It was good” (Genesis 1:4-25).
But on the sixth day, after He created man, the Bible says, “Then God saw everything that He had made, and indeed it was very good. So the evening and the morning were the sixth day” (Genesis 1:31).
You’re the crowning beauty of God’s creation—the consummation of His work, and the cream of His creation. You’re the most beautiful thing that the world has ever seen. You’re the perfection and epitome of beauty! You’re the reflection and manifestation of His glory.
The Bible says you’ve been called to glory and virtue (2 Peter 1:3), and not to poverty, sickness, disease or infirmity. You’re too beautiful to be sick. You’re too beautiful for the down-life! Your life is for the glory of God; you were created for glory and beauty!
Ephesians 2:10; James 1:18
Blessed Lord and Father, I thank you for creating me in your image and likeness. Through your Word, I’ve discovered that my life is for your glory; I’m the crowing beauty of all your creation! Thank you for making my life—the testimony of your glory and grace, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
