You are God’s Masterpiece

you-are-gods-masterpiece

You are God’s masterpiece! God created you exactly the way He intended for you to be, with your unique strengths and personality. Your experiences and insights add to who you are, and when you yield fully to Christ, He brings out the best you that’s possible!

“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

The inspiration behind this series came from an art class I took by Alisha Gratehouse called “You are a Masterpiece.” When I saw the description for the class, I knew that God was prompting me to take the class. I was trying to heal from a trial that had taken place in my life where after a lifetime of being confident, I suddenly felt like a worthless human being. I knew this was a lie from the enemy, so I wanted to splash into the Scriptures that proved who I truly was–who Christ says I am.

Alisha let me into the class at no cost because I’m a blogger, and when I started the class, I saw that she asked questions that helped me to process who I was, and that helped me to believe that I was beautiful to God. One of the art projects that is not pictured below (because I gave it away!) is the chalkboard art that said, “You are altogether beautiful, my love; there is no flaw in you” from Song of Songs 4:7. This Scripture hit me through the Spirit straight into my soul, and that is where my healing began.

Some of the art projects from “You are a Masterpiece” (like the Today I Choose block pictured in this post), I gave away to other women who have been struggling with the same worthlessness issues. For some reason the enemy has incapacitated almost the entire Christian female race into not knowing who we are, so that we accomplish nothing for His kingdom.

I looked around and saw nearly every woman in the same sinking boat, and I became furious at the enemy. How dare he incapacitate us, when we are powerful, accepted, loved, and forgiven? We are gifted and talented, and we have power over the enemy!

I was strongly prompted by God to do this series: 31 Days to Regaining Your Identity in Christ. I did it out of fury. I did it so that I myself could be healed. And as I got my hands messy with Mod Podge and paint in Alicia’s art class, the process of creating the art began to heal me. My circumstances had not changed, but I was accessing the mighty healing of God. If God came to set us free, we ought not to be living in sorrow. If Jesus came to bring life abundantly, where is that life?

I am certain that God is real, that Scripture is true, and there is no reason why we should remain in the muck of a living hell. Sorrow should not engulf us the rest of our days. All is not lost. If we are still on this earth, there must be a reason for us to still be here.

God did not create us so that we would live a life of torment, live in sorrow, unable to hardly breathe every day of our lives. He has not come to steal our hope and tell us that we are pieces of garbage that have no more use. No. These are lies from the enemy, and I’m done being lied to. That’s it. This much and no further, I say.

I have nearly come to the conclusion of this series, and I am astounded!!!! You guys, I have been set free, even though my circumstances have not changed! I have inward abundance, even though I have no money! I have joy and hope, even though anyone else in my situation would not bother getting out of bed!

If you are struggling with anything I’ve mentioned, I encourage you to go back and listen to each of the videos of this series. When you are finished, I hope and pray that you, too, will find healing and worth. You are God’s masterpiece!

    Since we are created by God we are created pretty awesome!

  3. Alicia says:

    Wow. This makes me want to take an art class! I will check out the Masterpiece series you created. Isn’t it just like God to throw you into an art class to remind you that you are His art (workmanship)? Thanks for sharing!

    Thank you for reminding us of our true identity. It’s a much needed reminder in a world that profits from us not being good enough.
