YOU ARE NOT ALWAYS WHAT PEOPLE SAY YOU ARE BUT WHAT THE SCRIPTURES SAY YOU ARE.
“I will praise Thee; for I am fearfully and wonderfully made: marvellous are Thy works; and that my soul knoweth right well” Psalm 139:14.
Many at times, we form opinion about things, as well as about ourselves from what people say. This is due to the fact that some of us prefer to listen to what people say and not what God says in the Scripture. What people say are most of the time formed out of human judgements. God knows the beginning from the end and the end from the beginning. He created us and knows us better than we know ourselves. Not basing our judgement about ourselves and not seeing ourselves and our situations as God sees us is very dangerous. It can deprive us peace of mind and prevent us from accessing God’s blessing and miracle.
There is both physical and spiritual advantage in holding and forming opinions about ourselves and situations from what God says in the Scripture.
David in our focal passage Psalm 139:14 saw himself from God’s view. He knew according to Genesis 1:26-27 that he was created by God in His likeness, that every part of him was joined together by God right from his mother’s womb. He knew that God knew him intimately and nothing about was unknown to God. His assessment of himself was that he was a special person who was fearfully and wonderfully created. Reason why he saw himself as of little lower than the angel (Psalm 8) and someone who God loved.
Beloved, let no man define who you are but let the Scripture define you. See yourself and your situation from the point of view of the Scripture. Like David, know that you are fearfully and wonderfully made.
You are special to God and He loves you.
