I will praise You, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made – Psalm 139:14
What do you see when you look into the mirror? A tired face? Eyes filled with sadness? A furrowed brow caused by stress? More wrinkles? Frowns instead of smiles? Faded beauty? Diminishing youth? Or do you see what God sees? Someone created in His image?
Did you know that He formed your inward parts and covered you in your mother’s womb? Before you were even formed, He saw your substance. He saw the woman and man your were meant to be. He knew the accomplishments you would make, the decisions you would weigh and the mistakes you would make. Nothing you do can diminish His love for you. David knew this and that’s why he concluded, “How precious also are Your thoughts to me, O God! How great is the sum of them!” (Psalm 139:17).
God loves you with an everlasting love. He said, “Therefore with loving kindness I have drawn you” (Jeremiah 31:3). You are His masterpiece. The apple of His eye. When you see yourself the way He does, you will fully understand why He were are so precious to Him.
