(Matthew 5:9 MSG)
“You’re blessed when you can show people how to cooperate instead of compete or fight. That’s when you discover who you really are, and your place in God’s family.
I believe today the biggest issue one faces in finding who they are is discovering how much He loves us. When we know how much He loves us there is not a need in us to be better than another or to think less of our selves than another.
You are God’s masterpiece. The dictionary defines a “masterpiece” as “a person’s greatest work of art
A masterpiece is a one of a KIND. It can not be duplicated, oh yes you can copy it but its value is way less than its original.
The word tells us there are two great commandments and I believe its really three if you think about it. Number one Love the Lord your God with all your heart,2 Love your neighbor and in order to love your neighbor you have to3 love yourself.
How do we know if we are loving? Do we know God? Do we know He loves us and how much?
1 John 4:8
8 lAnyone who does not love does not know God, because mGod is love.
If we are always trying to be someone else and always searching for our place in this world then we have not yet discovered His love. Nor are we loving others because we are making it all about us.
God did not make us on a mass production line. He took great care in making us who we were meant to be. He had a purpose in mind for us even before we came into being.
Knowing that we are unique should humble us. It should make us realize just how much God loves us. We understand that no two people have the same fingerprint. That blows my mind just to consider that there is no other one in the human population who has the identical pattern that I have or you have.
You might feel like you have done things that maybe has caused God to change His mind about you and who He called you to be but let me tell you God don’t change His mind. Its up to us to shake off those thoughts and walk in what He has for us.
Romans 11:29 tells us: "For the gifts and the calling of God are irrevocable." He's given this to you and He will never take it back - it stands as a fact of His total truth toward you!
So today I hope you will bask in how much He loves you and ROCK WHAT YA GOT!!
