“Thank you for making me so wonderfully complex!
Your workmanship is marvelous—how well I know it.” – Psalm 139:14
1. What’s the one thing you like the most about yourself?
2. What’s the one thing about yourself that you’d most like to change?
Raise your hand if you feel good about yourself all of the time.
Raise your hand if you feel good about yourself just some of the time.
Most of us don’t feel good about ourselves all of the time or even most of the time. That’s because we are all humans and none of us are perfect.
But here’s some great news! In God’s eyes, you were made perfect. That’s a big deal because God is the all-powerful Creator of the universe. We learn this in Genesis 1:1:
“In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.”
And God didn’t just create the heavens and the earth. He also created every single person that’s ever been born!
In Genesis 1:27, we also learn that “God created human beings in his own image… male and female he created them.”
That means you too! You were made in the image of God. God had something very special in mind when He created you, and it wasn’t a mistake—even in those times when you don’t feel so special.
Let’s read our Warm-Up verse again: “Thank you for making me so wonderfully complex! Your workmanship is marvelous – how well I know it.” — Psalm 139:14
How does it feel knowing the Creator of the universe also created you?
Next time you’re not feeling great about yourself or your performance, know that God created you and loves you just the way you are!
Let’s pray together:
“Dear God, thank You for creating me on purpose and in Your image. Help me remember how much You love me every day. Amen.”
