You are child of God. He created you to be uniquely who you are. There has never, in the history of mankind, been a person like you. God is incredibly proud of you as His creation. He is not ashamed, nor does He feel like you are a mistake. He loves you. He has gifted you with talents and specialties that add to your uniqueness. No one can do things like you can.
God created you for a purpose. He set your life in motion for a reason. You are here because God wants you. He doesn’t make mistakes. He has not casted you aside. You are wanted. God longs to be with you. He is in constant pursuit of you. He made you to be with Him. But He understands. He knows the demands of this world. He knows why you’re distracted. He knows why you messed up. He knows the mistakes you’ve made. He knows why you’re distant. He feels the distance growing between you.
You don’t feel good enough. You messed up. You said the words. You went through the motions. It was you. You made the mistake. Now you’re not worthy. You can’t come to God. You have to make up for it first. There is a debt, and you have to pay.
But God has taken care of it. He knew there would be mistakes and He knew the distance they would cause. He loved you too much to allow it to happen. So, God made a plan. He saw the debt you’d feel you have to pay, and He paid it. He sent His Son to die. His Son was perfect, free from the burden mistakes cause. His Son didn’t have a debt to pay. So He took yours. He took the blame for your mistake and sat in the midst of your mess. He felt the distance your sin was causing. He shouldered your burden. 100% of it. And He paid the debt. He died. He died for you. He made up for your mistakes. He took the responsibility off of you so you don’t have to worry anymore.
But that’s not all. He didn’t stay dead. Instead, He rose again breaking the power it had over you. You never have to be slave to that debt anymore. You never have to feel the shame mistakes bring you. You never have to be distant from God because you feel you’re too messy. It’s taken care of. The distance is covered. God is here. He wants you. He loves you. He is proud of you.
You are a new person. You are not tied down by sin. You are not in debt to mistakes. You are not burdened by messes. You are loved. You are created for a purpose. You are held by the Almighty God. There is nothing holding you back from being with Him. You are beautifully radiant. You are amazing. You are who you’re meant to be. You are His daughter. That’s all you need to be.
“For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand, that we should walk in them.”
Ephesians 2:10 ESV
