Devotional: God's Masterpiece

Do you listen to the lies of this world? Do you believe that you are a mistake or a failure? Try listening to the Voice of Truth.

For we are God’s masterpiece. He has created us anew in Christ Jesus, so we can do the good things he planned for us long ago.

Ephesians 2:10 NLT 

A young girl stares hard at her reflection in the mirror. "Am I really a mistake? Am I really a failure at everything that I do?"

Don't Listen To The Lies

In this world, it is so easy to not only listen to the lies that we are told, but to also believe them. Especially when the words being spoken to us are coming from a loved one.

The Lord is patiently waiting for each of us to turn our hurt over to Him. If we allow it, He will shine His light into our darkness and give us hope to carry on.

What struggles did you face as a child? Everybody has sin to face in their story. How do you respond to the pain?

I learned, as a young girl, not to show emotion. Whenever I cried or showed that I was angry, I was made fun of or made to feel guilty. My coping mechanism was to press things down inside.

You Are God's Masterpiece 

I just picture God's image appearing in the mirror before that young girl. He simply says, "No my child, you are my masterpiece!."

Do you listen to the lies that are being spoken over your life? Do you believe that they are true?

Humor me a moment, I want to share some of the lyrics of Voice Of Truth with you.

Voice of Truth by Casting Crowns

Oh what I would do to have
The kind of strength it takes to stand before a giant
With just a sling and a stone
Surrounded by the sound of a thousand warriors
Shaking in their armor
Wishing they'd have had the strength to stand

But the giant's calling out my name
And he laughs at me
Reminding me of all the times
I've tried before and failed
The giant keeps on telling me
Time and time again. "Boy you'll never win!"
"You'll never win!"

But the stone was just the right size
To put the giant on the ground
And the waves they don't seem so high
From on top of them lookin' down
I will soar with the wings of eagles
When I stop and listen to the sound of Jesus
Singing over me

I will choose to listen and believe the voice of truth

The Lord is there with you. He wants desperately for you to listen to the Voice of Truth. He wants you to remember that while you face your giants, He is singing over you. You are His masterpiece and that is the truth.

Let's Pray: 

Dear Father,  

Whenever the lies start to creep in, please help me to remember that I am Your masterpiece. You have created me anew in Christ Jesus, so that I can do the good things that You planned for me long ago. Thank You for all that You do. In Jesus' name, Amen.
