"Then the Lord God formed a man from the dust of the ground and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life, and the man became a living being." - Genesis 2:7
“For we are God's masterpiece. He has created us anew in Christ Jesus, so we can do the good things he planned for us long ago.” -Ephesians 2:10
Try reading this to yourself:
- I am God’s masterpiece
- He created me anew in Christ Jesus
- So I can do good things
- He planned for me long ago
What comes to your mind when you think about your purpose and creation influences how you see yourself. All men must wrestle with the questions "how did I get here?" and "why am I here?" God gives us the truth, answers that will transform the way you think about yourself.
The difference between you and dirt is God. Forming you out of the dust of the ground, God Himself breathed life into you. Your very ability to work and act creatively comes from God. You are valuable not because of what you do, you "do" because God valued you brought you to life. That order is not only true, but it is also critical to keep in the forefront of your mind. Your value and ability come from God. In a world that celebrates being "self-made" and that places value on a man relating to what he can do, remind yourself of the truth. You're valuable because God assigned value to you.
