His Creation

Isaiah 64:8

Psalm 139:13-17

The potter intricately designed the clay into what he would have it to be. He studied it, fashioned and made it just according to his plans.

He was happy with the results.

Just the same as God was pleased when He created you. He designed you, constructed you and then marveled at the work He had accomplished.

So why don’t we?

We were made in His image. We are referred to as “His workmanship”.

But we still find flaws. Instead of choosing to embrace the uniqueness that our Creator gave us we try to hide it, change it or become ashamed of it.

I encourage you to love yourself as God has made you. Hear the laugh that you may think too loud as a sound created just for you. See the abnormally long toe as a trait that God gave special to just your family.

God sees you as an individual. He loves everything about you, His creation. Begin viewing yourself as His artwork and the things you once thought as flaws will instead become creativeness drawn up in love.

Creativity

Psalm 19:1

Throughout the Bible we are given beautiful descriptions of a river with fruitful trees growing along the banks of it. This picture of God’s creation is also a beautiful description of our relationship with Jesus.

Jesus is that river. He is our source of life. The fruitful trees are us, followers of Christ. We gain life and strength because our roots are connected to Him. To know that Jesus, the River of Life, is supplying our need for survival is humbling. Rooted in Him we can be found not only living but growing and producing fruit. He is the Giver of Life and we are the recipients, flourishing under His care.

If we have a desire to see God in His creations then we can learn so much about ourselves and The Creator. We will find ourselves drawing closer to Him, in awe of the beauty and symbolisms of His creativity.
