“God saw all that he had made, and it was very good.”
Genesis 1:10 (NIV)
During creation, the last one created was MAN. Last but not the least in fact the most special. Yes, you are special! God made an effort in picking up dust and formed your great grand father Adam from it and breathed into his nostrils [Gen. 2:6] to bring him to life when he could have just commanded and said a word like how he created the rest of the creations (e.g. sun, moon, stars, trees, animals, etc.). Imagine him as an architect making his best creation so far. That’s how he made you!
He also made sure that everything is ready and complete [Gen. 2:1] before he created man. He made sure man can have food to eat and place to stay and live comfortably.
Aside from that here’s what I want you to look at today found in Gen. 1:26,
God said, “Let us make man in our image, in our likeness…”.
God is saying when he looks at us, it’s as if he’s looking at a mirror. He’s saying: You are his picture here on Earth! You have been created according to nobody else’s likeness but his. King and Psalmist David remembered this while writing one of his songs [Psalm 139:14],
I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made;
Your works are wonderful,
I know that full well.
Paul also wrote to Ephesians saying [Eph. 2:10],
“For we are His workmanship…”
WHAT DOES THIS MEAN?
You are his Marvelous and Wonderful Workmanship made according to his IMAGE and LIKENESS!
With this TRUTH, will there be still room for insecurity and lack of confidence in your life?
Just like David, you need to know full well and believe this truth!
Be confident! You are a beautiful creation of God!
Then God said, “It was very good.” [Gen. 1:31]
