Known: 10 Days to Discovering Your Identity

Day 4 of 10 • This day’s reading

Devotional

There was something missing in creation without you. God couldn't stand the idea of not knowing you, so He created you! He made you fearfully and wonderfully. Fearfully like a proud parent sending a grown child into the world, and wonderfully knowing the beautiful life He has in store for you. 


‭He made you for a good and fulfilling purpose. Ephesians 2:10 says it like this “For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand that we should walk in them.” #Hello! In another translation, instead of “workmanship”, the word “masterpiece” is used. A masterpiece doesn’t contain mistakes. You are exactly who He wants you to be. All He wants for you is to draw near to Him, and in return, He will draw near to you. When we think about being in a relationship, it’s usually a two-way street. It’s the same with God. He knew us before we were ever aware of Him, and now He wants you to draw near to Him—to know Him too. The nearer you are, the more you will be able to discover who He is. In discovering who He is, you will discover more of who you are—a masterpiece.


If you ever feel far, if you ever feel alone, if you ever feel unsure of your purpose, insecure about who you are, or underappreciated for what you do, remember you are His masterpiece. You are known, and loved, and lacking nothing. There would be something missing in creation without you.
