“For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand so that we would walk in them.”-Ephesians 2:10 (NASB)
In my upcoming book, MADE FOR MORE, the first chapter addresses the the question of “Who am I?”. We have all been at the place in our life where we have asked this question. The struggle to discover our identity and understand who we are meant to be in this world can weigh us down.
The truth is, many times, we rest in the identity given to us by others. We might have had a teacher who suggested we wouldn’t be worth anything. We might have had a parent who said we were worthless. Our romantic relationships, or lack thereof, have hindered our ability to feel like we are valuable.
The only way to truly know our value, we need to rest in the identity given to us by our Creator. God had Paul write in Ephesians describing God’s creation as “His workmanship”. That is defining us as a piece of extreme value. It is a work of art that should be honored and respected. God honors and respects us as His masterpiece.
God receives all the glory, but He still gives us honor in His story.
There are so many voices trying to tell us who are and what we are worth, but only our Creator can truly define us. We need to rest in His word and the truth of His definition of us as His great work of art.
May you see your value defined in Scripture. May you know that the world does not give you identity, but the Creator of the world does! May you rest in His truth.
Peace and blessings friends!
