When God created us, He didn’t say, “Oh, I guess that’ll do” or “I could probably do better but this is good enough” or “whoops! I made a mistake there”. No! He looked on us with pride and exclaimed………..VERY GOOD!
How would God have felt when He said those words? How do I feel when something I've done turns out exceptionally well? I feel proud of my creation……satisfied with my work. I like it when others enjoy my work and are blessed by it. Their compliments feel good to me.
Do you think maybe God feels that way too? Having a sense of satisfaction and pride in His creation, pleased with His work and desirous that it would bring enjoyment to us and those around us. I do know He likes it when we praise Him for His creation too. READ PSALM 150
Learning about God’s concept of me and His attitude towards me – His creation - has changed how I look at and feel about myself. I now say the same about myself that David said in Psalm 139. "I will praise You, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made; Marvelous are Your works,
And that my soul knows very well. "
I praise Him for how He has made me and I enjoy and praise Him for others He has created as well …..thanking Him for making them the way they are because everyone that God has created – me and you my friend – He says is VERY GOOD!
Take a moment to thank God for making you VERY GOOD! Post your prayer to Him in the comments below and let's all Praise the Lord together!
