The Lord God formed the man from the dust of the ground and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life, and the man became a living being. Genesis 2:7
Eeyore, the gloomy friend of Winnie the Pooh, walked around with his head down. I see Christian walking around with their heads down, complaining about everything that doesn’t matter. Their focus is on what is wrong and what they don’t have instead of what is right and what they do have.
God created you and made you special. He created you like He created nothing else. “And God said, ‘Let there be light,’ ” “And God said, ‘Let there be an expanse between waters . . .’ ” “And God said . . .” “And God said . . .” “And God said . . .” “And God said . . .” (Gen. 1) Over and over God spoke creation into existence, but when it came to creating his prize possession, man, He chose to be more involved. He formed man and breathed into him life. Did He have to? No. Could He have spoken man into existence? Yes. But He chose to give man His personal touch.
We are a hands-on project!
God didn’t contract out the work to an angel. He didn’t give the archangel Michael a blueprint and tell him to create man. God didn’t say let man be formed. He formed man and breathed life into him.
Hold your head high. You are a child of The King.
The Lord your God has chosen you out of all the peoples on the face of the earth to be his people, his treasured possession. (Deut. 7:6)
Thank You Lord, for making me Your child. Help me to hold my head high and show the world that I am proud of my status as The King’s kid. Amen.
