Fred Hammond the great gospel singer once wrote a song saying he will dance like David danced, but for me I donâ€™t want to necessarily dance like David danced. I want to say what David said in Psalm 139:
â€œIâ€™m Godâ€™s masterpiece. Iâ€™m wonderfully made. Iâ€™m talented. Iâ€™m original. God has given me everything that I need.â€
David praised God for making him in an amazing way, and declared that what God had done was awesome. Is that how you start your day?
Iâ€™ve met many people who think they are being humble by putting themselves down. They say, â€œoh, Iâ€™m not that talented. It was no big deal.â€ But really, we should be bold like David and say, â€œIâ€™m amazing. Iâ€™m a masterpiece. God made me, and He doesnâ€™t make junk! I am equipped, I am empowered, and I am talented!â€
Today, please make the decision to stop putting yourself down; stop focusing on your flaws and comparing yourself to others. Your Creator says â€œyou are a masterpiece.â€ Itâ€™s time to get in agreement with God and realise how much He loves you. Itâ€™s time to realise how special you are. Make the shift by changing your words and daily say what David said!
“I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well.” (Psalm 139:14, NIV)(Psalm 139:14, NIV)
Pray With Me
Yahweh, I praise You because I am fearfully and wonderfully made. Thank You for equipping me for every good work. Thank You for showing me Your love in a new way, as I keep my heart and mind focused on You. Please give me the boldness and spiritual confidence so I wont put myself and others down. Father, teach me how to love myself, in Jesusâ€™ Name! Amen.
