As a believer, you are a child of the King, a prized possession, an heir of God.
You are not ordinary. You didnít come off an assembly line. You werenít mass-produced. You are an original design. Nobody else in this world has your fingerprints.
You are a masterpiece!
It is so important to get this down in your spirit. When you do ó and when you begin to see yourself as God created you ó you will start to understand your real purpose and your God-given destiny.
You will be able to reach your highest potential!
Right now, you may not like who you are. You might wish you were taller, had a better personality or that your metabolism worked a little faster. Maybe youíre self-conscious about a physical attribute or perceived imperfection or you just donít think that you are lovable.
I want to encourage you. Right now, begin to change any negative opinions you have of yourself. Stop focusing on your flaws and comparing yourself to someone else. God has made you unique and special just the way you are.
When you understand this, it brings new opportunities, new relationships and new levels of Godís favor!
Your value doesnít come from what you look like, or what you do or who you know.
Every morning, remind yourself that you are Godís creation. Declare, ďI am not average. I am not ordinary. I have the fingerprints of God all over me. I am a masterpiece.Ē
God created everything about you on purpose...your looks, your skin color, your height, your personality, your talents and gifts.
If you see yourself as strong, talented and valuable, then thatís the way other people will see you. But if you see yourself as ďless than,Ē not talented and not valuable, then thatís the way others will see you.
Choose to start loving yourself in a healthy way, being proud of the person God made you to be.
Thatís what David did in Psalm 139. He praised God for making him in an amazing way and declared that what God had done was wonderful.
Be bold enough to say, like David, ďIím amazing. Iím a masterpiece.Ē
Itís up to you to get in agreement with God and realize how much He loves you and how special He made you.
Victoria and I are believing for Godís favor in your life. We are praying doors of opportunity will swing open and that you will see your dreams and desires come to pass.
I declare over you new seasons of opportunity, growth and victory!
