[x_custom_headline type=”left” level=”h4″ looks_like=”h4″]The devil is a liar! And he lies to believers, telling them that they are nothing, that they are undeserving and unworthy. His mental warfare against many Christians is often intense, as he seeks to persuade them that they are already defeated, that their lives will always be marked by failure, and that they should simply quit now and save themselves the embarrassment of pressing on any longer.[/x_custom_headline]
But what the devil says isn’t what God says about you at all. So you need to decide right now who you are going to listen too. Because if you will get your focus on what God’s says about you, your life will make an immediate upswing, and you will be on the path to victory and success in life.
Here is what the Lord says about you:
[x_blockquote cite=”Ephesians 2:10 KJV” type=”left”]“For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them.”[/x_blockquote]
According to this verse, when you were born again you were handcrafted by God Himself, and for His purpose. In fact, the word “workmanship” in this verse comes from the Greek word poiema. It is from this word that we get the words “poem” or “poetry.” So you are the Lord’s work of art; His masterpiece.
God put forth His greatest efforts and creative power when He fashioned us and recreated us in Jesus Christ. We are God’s own masterpiece of poetry.
A master artist, poet or craftsman wants to place their signature on their best work. When you were born again, God did His best work in re-creating you. You must realize that there is nothing cheap about you at all. God’s intelligent genius was at work when you were born again!
[x_blockquote cite=”John 1:12 KJV” type=”left”]“But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name:”[/x_blockquote]
You have no legitimate reason to be anything other than an awesome success in life. As His workmanship, He deposited within us His very own power, authority and divine influence.
Obviously, everything the devil has been saying to you about how worthless you are, and how unimportant you are to the Kingdom of God, is just more of his lies. Because when you were born again, you became God’s masterpiece.
It is impossible for you to ever be happy or find true fulfillment in life until you commit yourself to be and to do what God created you for in Christ. You can hunt everywhere for true satisfaction in life, but you will never find it until you fully submit to God’s plan and purpose for your life.
[x_blockquote cite=”Zephaniah 3:17 KJV” type=”left”]“The Lord thy God in the midst of thee is mighty; he will save, he will rejoice over thee with joy; he will rest in his love, he will joy over thee with singing.”[/x_blockquote]
A masterpiece is a highly valuable possession. And our God, the Almighty Deliverer, is not going to allow the enemy to just push you around. His love for you is unfailing, and His greatest desire is to bring you to a place of total victory over every attack of the enemy.
In fact, the Lord loves you so deeply that as His very own child you bring great joy to Him. And according to this verse above, when He thinks of you He breaks out into song.
Why does the Lord feel so deeply about you? Because you are His masterpiece, recreated in Christ Jesus for good works. And your good works matter to the Kingdom of God. So please don’t allow the devil to lie to you about that either.
[x_blockquote cite=”Matthew 5:16 KJV” type=”left”]“Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven.”[/x_blockquote]
The devil is doing everything he can to try to convince you to put your light out. But you are God’s masterpiece. It is time for you to shine, and shine brightly. The world is watching you. By your good works they become acquainted with the Lord Jesus Christ.
Whether you realize it or not, your good works are like a lighthouse for lost ships at sea.
When you were born again, you became the “workmanship of God.” Live like it every day. Don’t let the devil tell you otherwise, because you matter to the success of the Kingdom of God.
And because you are God’s Masterpiece, you are a special treasure in the Family of God.
