As I woke this morning, the Lord whispered, “You are my handiwork.” Imagine! I am God’s handiwork! You are God’s handiwork! According to definition, handiwork is done, personally, by the hands of an artist; like a sculptor, weaver, painter, or craftsman. The Creator of the Universe, the One who made the Heavens and the Earth, personally took an interest in making me and making you. He made us with His own hands and oversaw every detail.
You [God] made all the delicate, inner parts of my body and knit me together in my mother’s womb. You watched me as I was being formed in utter seclusion, as I was woven together in the dark of the womb. Psalm 139: 13,15
We are not accidents. Even if we were born under tragic circumstances, the God of the Universe formed every intricate part of us. He loves us, no matter how we got here.
Why would God create us? He wants to love us. He wants us to love and experience Him. He wants to have a relationship with us. He wants us to praise Him for all He has done.
An artist of great skill fashions an outstanding piece of work, and calls it a masterpiece. Upon completion of that masterpiece, he signs his work so that others know he did it. In like manner, God, our Father, calls us His Masterpiece and puts His signature on our lives. God admires His work, you and me, and delights in us.
There can be copies of a masterpiece, but there is only one original. There is only one of you, uniquely designed by God, who has gifted you with personality, skills, abilities, and desires. Only you can do the good things that He has planned for you long ago.
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
You are God’s handiwork, His masterpiece. Thank Him for creating you and giving you special qualities. Ask Him to lead you into the life He has planned for you.
