TOPIC: YOU ARE GOD’S HANDIWORK
Read Psalms 139
The LORD will perfect that which concerns me; Your mercy, O LORD, endures forever; do not forsake the works of Your hands (Psalms 138:8)
In those days in the primary school, once a week, pupils had ‘handiwork’ day, when they were asked to bring materials such as brooms, baskets and other things they had made with their own hands. The Psalmist first professed that God has purpose (concerns) for his life. In the NIV, it says, ‘The Lord will fulfil His purpose for me’. There is a purpose for which you were made, and such purpose must not be frustrated, but fulfilled. Whatever purpose you were made for, the primary reason is to display God’s glory (Isa. 61:3). Even when you are passing through hardship of some kind, the glory of God will be manifested at the end.
Moreover, it is interesting how the Psalmist has described the relationship between God and himself; he is one of God’s handiworks. It is even more interesting to note that this theme of God’s handiwork is expanded in the following Psalms 139, where a comprehensive explanation of how God made us is given with such descriptive words as ‘create’, ‘knit’, ‘woven’, etc. All these tell you that you are not an accident; you were born with a purpose, created for a reason, knitted for special use, and woven together wholly, beautifully and wonderfully. Hallelujah!
As you launch out into the world God has created for you, today, look at yourself and declare: “God is my Craftsman; I am His masterpiece. Nothing missing, nothing broken. Praise the Lord!”
- Begin to praise the name of the Lord for making you who you are!
- Declare with the Psalmist that the Lord will surely fulfil His purpose for your life.
- Ask God to remember you where you are today because you are His handiwork.
