“And we all, who with unveiled faces contemplate the Lord’s glory, are being transformed into his image with ever-increasing glory, which comes from the Lord, who is the Spirit” (2 Cor. 3:8).
God called you by name and created you to be a reflection of His glory. Be blessed as Jesus is reflected in your life. You are being transformed into His image with ever-increasing glory.
God created you for a purpose. You are an oak of righteousness, a planting of the Lord for the display of His splendor (Isa. 61:3). You were created in Christ Jesus to do good works (Eph. 2:10). Listen to your Father’s voice as He speaks your purpose as He sees it. Trust that He will provide all that is needed for you to fulfill His purposes. He has more resources than you can begin to imagine. He has connections to people you haven’t met yet.
Be true to the masterpiece that you are. The Lord your Maker crowns you with glory and honor (Isa. 54:5; Ps. 8:5). Never apologize for being who God created you to be. Shine forth your unique display of His image in you.
You have something to give your world that no other person has. Your family and your community need the deposit of Himself that God has placed in your life…”Christ in you, the hope of glory” (Col. 1:27b).
You are of great worth. You are a champion, a treasure. Be blessed as you live from a heart fully alive, being who He made you to be and doing what you were born to do from the inside out.
