Made

I came across a quote recently which read: “you are exactly who God intended you to be.” And it’s an idea, I think, worth pondering. First of all, God knows everything about you. Psalm 139: 1-4 “You have searched me, Lord,
 and you know me. You know when I sit and when I rise;
 you perceive my thoughts from afar. You discern my going out and my lying down;
 you are familiar with all my ways. Before a word is on my tongue
 you, Lord, know it completely.”

This God, this all-knowing, almighty, attainable God knows us each intimately and personally. And because of the redemption Jesus brought us on the cross, all barriers to the Father fall down. We too can know God, tangibly. He is in every circumstance. He knows our thoughts before we think them and our words before we speak them. He has laid out a path before us. Proverbs 16:9 “In their hearts humans plan their course, but the Lord establishes their steps.”

You were made for a purpose. Every aspect of your life is a preparation for a path only God can fully see. The same goes for ourselves. We are made in the image of God, our loving Father. We are individually perfectly crafted by the Creator of the universe. I don’t know about you, but that amazes me!

While listening to Hawk Nelson’s new album “Made,” I spent a great deal of time reflecting on the title track. It reflects the idea of purpose. Your life is not, was not and never will be a mistake. You were planned to live this life you are leading. You were made to glorify the love of your Father in Heaven. When we take the time to appreciate all the special, unique qualities we possess such as our personality, interests, looks and quirks, we are honoring God.

Sometimes we struggle with this idea of appreciating who we are. I struggle with it too. But God makes no mistakes. We are “exactly who God intended us to be.” Just as we delight in our Father in Heaven, so He delights in us, His magnificent creation. We don’t have to change one thing to be accepted in the eyes of God.

No matter how you may feel today, please know, you are ‘beautiful, wonderful and perfectly made’ to the Lord. He loves you more than you know!

Deuteronomy 33:12 “About Benjamin he said: “Let the beloved of the Lord rest secure in him, for he shields him all day long, and the one the Lord loves rests between his shoulders.”

“Made”
Why do you hide from who you are?
Why do you run from the mirror, pretend to be who you’re not?
Why do you fight to accept yourself?
Aren’t you more than the tears you’ve cried and the fear you’ve felt?
Oh, tell me what you see
Tell me what you see
And I’ll tell you something else

You’re beautiful, wonderful
Perfectly made, perfectly made
You’re meant to be what you see
You’re not a mistake, not a mistake

Brighter than stars that shine
You light up the Maker’s eyes
And you’d believe if you could see
The smile on His face
The moment you were made
Made

Lift up your face
Now is your time
‘Cause everything changes when you find yourself in His light

So tell me what you see, what you see
And I’ll tell you what He sees

You’re beautiful, wonderful
You’re perfectly made, perfectly made
You’re meant to be what you see
You’re not a mistake, not a mistake

Brighter than stars that shine
You light up the Maker’s eyes
And you’d believe if you could see
The smile on His face
The moment you were made
Made

Before the sun was given light
Before you opened up your eyes
Inside out, soul and heart
He made you to be who you are

Before the sun was given light
Before you opened up your eyes
Inside out, soul and heart
He made you to be who you are

You’re beautiful, wonderful
You’re perfectly made, perfectly made
You’re meant to be what you see
You’re not a mistake, not a mistake

Brighter than stars that shine
You light up the Maker’s eyes
And you’d believe if you could see
The smile on His face
The moment you were made
Made, made, made
