I AM Your Maker. I put every part of you together. I gave you life. I have showed kindness to you and have sovereignly watched over your spirit. I made you. And I give you understanding of My Word.
[You] clothe me with skin and flesh and knit me together with bones and sinews? You gave me life and showed me kindness, and in your providence watched over my spirit. Your hands made me and formed me; give me understanding to learn your commands.
Job 10:11; Psalm 119:73
You are Valuable. I have made everything beautiful in it time, including you. I have put eternity in your heart; what I have done is so amazing it is impossible to fully understand. Praise arises in your spirit when you understand you are respectfully and wonderfully made. You can be confident of that.
He has made everything beautiful in its time. He has also set eternity in the human heart; yet no one can fathom what God has done from beginning to end. I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well.
Ecclesiastes 3:11; Psalm 139:14
I give Value. Birds are sold for profit, and I know exactly what happens to each of them. I know everything about you, including the number of hairs on your head. Do not be afraid, you are more valuable than many birds.
Are not two sparrows sold for a penny? And not one of them will fall to the ground apart from your Father. But even the hairs of your head are all numbered. Fear not, therefore; you are of more value than many sparrows.
You have Value. When you come to me, your Father, even when you are still a long way off, I will see you and have compassion on you. I will run to you and embrace you and love you.
I will arise and go to my father, and I will say to him, “Father, I have sinned against heaven and before you. I am no longer worthy to be called your son. Treat me as one of your hired servants.”’ And he arose and came to his father. But while he was still a long way off, his father saw him and felt compassion, and ran and embraced him and kissed him.
Reflect: What defines your value? Do you let you let opinions, comparisons, and successes define you? If so, you will never measure up. It is best to let your Creator define you. Through the eyes of grace, He sees you as attractive, impressive, magnificent, beautiful. You are valuable to Him.
Declare Truth and Give Thanks. Father, you made me and that makes be valuable. Thank you that you love me just as you created me. Thank you that you know everything about me, yet you still see me, embrace me, and love me. You are a good, good Father.
