Have you ever wondered why you are made with the personality and looks that you have? I think we all do from time to time; and worse, in today’s society, we tend to want to look like someone else such as an actor, actress, model, singer, or your next door neighbor. It’s always easy to compare ourselves only to come up with a list of things we would like to change. Whether it’s losing weight, smaller noses, better features, smaller waist, muscular, etc, etc, etc. and even if we were able to change those things, we still wouldn’t be satisfied as we can easily find something else we don’t like about ourselves.
But, guess what? I have great news for you today!
Instead of thinking about the things you would like to change, see yourself as a MASTERPIECE! God made you exactly the way you are and when you accepted Jesus as Lord and Savior, something amazing happened…the Holy Spirit came to live within you. So, when God looks upon you, He doesn’t see what you see; He sees you as perfect in His image and in His sight.
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.”
Psalm 139:13-16: “For you formed my inward parts; you knitted me together in my mother’s womb. I praise you, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made. Wonderful are your works; my soul knows it very well. My frame was not hidden from you, when I was being made in secret, intricately woven in the depths of the earth. Your eyes saw my unformed substance; in your book were written, every one of them, the days that were formed for me, when as yet there was none of them.”
Boy, doesn’t that change your perspective a lot? See, when we start thinking in this manner, our lives quickly change. We aren’t striving to be different or unique because we already are!
It’s okay if you feel you’d like to change something about yourself. Just pray about it and release it. If God feels the change is necessary then the Holy Spirit will guide you to make those changes when the time is right. Just don’t fret over it. Instead, enjoy your life and look in the mirror knowing that you are BEAUTIFUL, UNIQUE, and A MASTERPIECE!
God loves you this very moment and thinks you are WONDERFUL! Since God sees Jesus when He sees us; He is completely satisfied with us. We have His favor, His love, and His miraculous solutions chasing us down. There is absolutely nothing we need to do except see ourselves as God sees us. He made us, He knows us, and He loves us. There is nothing missing, nothing broken and nothing lacking! So, look in the mirror today and praise God for who you are.
