Mirror, Mirror on the Wall (2)

“Thank you for making me so wonderfully complex! Your workmanship is marvelous.”        Ps 139:14 NLT

So, how should you view the role of your physical appearance? (1) With gratitude. Thank God for the unique person He created you to be. You’re not the result of random genetics. You’re a genuine “one-off,” designed by God to fill a slot no one else can fill.He is what makes you who you are! “You made all the delicate, inner parts of my body and knit me together in my mother’s womb” (v. 13 NLT). “Thank you for making me so wonderfully complex! Your workmanship is marvelous.” You didn’t come from an assembly line like some product designed to fulfill a quota. No, you received the detailed, individualized focus of the Divine Architect. The Psalmist said, “You watched me as I was being formed… as I was woven together in…the womb” (v. 15 NLT). Now, that’s attention at the highest level, right? So give God thanks: you were created, inspected and approved in heaven before you moved a muscle on earth. (2) With understanding. Discover God’s purpose for your life. You weren’t designed to impress others or to seek their approval. In God’s eyes, your looks are not the measure of your worth. “The Lord doesn’t see things the way you see them. People judge by outward appearance, but the Lord looks at the heart” (1Sa 16:7 NLT). Start seeing yourself as God sees you. Ultimately, His opinion is the only one that matters. Indeed, “He decided in advance that [his people] would be conformed to the image of his Son” (Ro 8:29 CEB). Rejoice! God won’t be finished working on you until He’s made you just like Jesus.
