What does it mean to belong to God? First and foremost, nothing that we say, feel, or do can make us belong more or less to God. All of creation belongs to Him simply because He is the creator. However, there are choices that we make in our lives and within our hearts to show our devotion to Him as our Keeper. So although no matter what we belong to God, He offers us the freedom to choose Him wholeheartedly; to truly belong to Him. This is what this series is about…
I belong to God because He made me
God is my creator; He made me. He calls me for a purpose; His purpose. He keeps me, takes care of me, provides for me, heals me, leads me. Before I was a twinkle in my mother’s eye, He knew me and loved me. He is my Father and I am His.
Our Father has a specific purpose for each of us. We each have a part to fulfill in the body of Christ. Our bodies and all our features all created in His image, yet each one of us is unique and beautiful in ourselves. We are His masterpieces; works of art; priceless. We belong to our Father, the King, because He created us.
Psalm 100:3Know that the Lord is God. It is he who made us, and we are his; we are his people, the sheep of his pasture.
Psalm 139:13-16For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother’s womb. 14 I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well. 15 My frame was not hidden from you when I was made in the secret place, when I was woven together in the depths of the earth. 16 Your eyes saw my unformed body; all the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be.
Father, thank You for thinking of me. Thank You for calling me by name and giving me a purpose. I praise You because I am fearfully and wonderfully made! Help me to live this gift of life completely for You. I love You, my Father. Amen.
