For we are God’s masterpiece. He has created us anew in Christ Jesus, so we can do the good things he planned for us long ago. ~(Ephesians 2:10, NLT)
To the untrained eye, the construction site of a new house can seem disorganized, random, and messy, but the architect isn’t concerned because he drew the plans and knows exactly where it’s going. In the same way, you have to see the disappointments, the delays, the hurts, and the setbacks as all a part of God’s construction process for your life. He’s designed a specific plan for your life, which the messy places can’t stop. God’s already taken into account all the delays, the things you don’t understand, and even the mistakes you’ve made. You’re right on His schedule.
The enemy will whisper, “Look at you, such a mess. Your dreams will never work out.” Just say to him, “I’m under construction. I have some messy areas, but God is still working on me, and He will bring me to completion. I am His masterpiece.” You may not be there yet, but stop beating yourself up. Your attitude should be, “I’m looking beyond the mess to see the masterpiece.”
A Prayer for Today
“Father, thank You that You created me as a masterpiece, down to the smallest detail of what I would need to fulfill Your plan for my life. Thank You that You’re working in my life, and You will bring me to completion. I am looking beyond the messy areas to see the masterpiece in the making. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.” ~Joel and Victoria Osten
