‘Thank you for making me so wonderfully complex! Your workmanship is marvellous…’

Psalm 139:14 NLT

Everyone loves a new creed, right?!

○ Above and behind all Creation, behind all its ingenious design and mind-blowing beauty, is the God of my Bible.

○ My God has the sort of character that cares about every sparrow, every hair on a
head, and every single person personally.

○ My God planned me, loved me before He’d even made me, and delighted in
hand-crafting me, every single bit of me. (see Psalm 139:13-15)

○ I was created with such generous joy for a specific purpose that He knew would
be only for me in my time and my place.

○ He created me knowing I’d screw it all up.And knowing my sin in advance, He still chose to love me, to create me, and to save me. (see Rev 13:8)

○ God is the ONLY one who has the right information and the power to judge my abilities, my value, and my appearance.

○ He judges me worthy of His love (1 John 4:19-21), worthy of dying for me so that I could know His love here and in heaven.

○ God loves me.

This is true fact. It’s not a list of nice thoughts, daydream escapism, or cheap self-help. This is fact about God, not opinion about me, and because of this, its truth is more real than any words or feelings that come against me.

○ Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father. And if God is for me, who
can be against me? (Rom 8:31)

 

What now?
Go spend some time alone in front of a mirror, and look yourself in the eye while you say this creed to yourself. You may find it more of a challenge than you expect.
