You are Chosen and Carefully Designed:
Do you know what the bible says about us? It says that we are CHOSEN! A royal priesthood! We are holy! We have been called out of the darkness and into HIS light! We are the KING OF KINGS chosen people! (1 Peter 2:9-10).
How incredible is that? The one who made the skies wants us to be His people. We are chosen, wanted, desired. It doesn’t matter if your parents didn’t want you, or if the soccer team didn't want you, or if the school didn't want you, because you are desperately wanted by the ONE who made it all!
Psalm 139 is so beautiful, it says that God has searched us and knows our every thought. Even before we say a word He knows it! "For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mothers womb. I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful. I know that full well. How precious to me are your thoughts, God! How vast is the sum of them!"
I love this verse. It speaks to God’s kind and gentle characteristics, it speaks of His deep love for us. Most people tend to solely view God as big and powerful, sometimes forgetting His great love and compassion. Psalm 139 says even our thoughts are precious to Him! He chose to create us. He picked our features, our talents, our gifts. He knows the number of hairs on your head! He even collects our tears! My dear, you are so loved! You were created and designed in God’s own image. You are fearfully and wonderfully made! So stop thinking that you are anything less than a precious creation that is it to be cared for! He knows you, each and every part of you, the good and the bad, and He still looks at you with love. Maybe you should start looking at yourself the way He does. He looks at you and declares A MASTERPIECE!
