For every house has a builder, but the one who built everything is God. – Hebrews 3:4 (NLT)
Have you ever walked down the street and looked at all the houses or buildings and thought those buildings were not built by someone? The foundation, walls, and roof didn’t just show up one day. No, someone put some thought and some effort into building them.
In the same way, God built everything we see in the world around us. Maybe not the buildings, but the plants, the animals, the sky, and people. God built them all.
Knowing that you are created by a intelligent, wise and loving God changes everything. It means that even if you don’t like yourself, even if people don’t treat you right, God built you. That means that you have value and that you’re important to God.
So, even if you feel that you lack confidence in your abilities, when you know that you’ve been created by God it changes things. You can build confidence in a creator God that loves you, and let His confidence in you become your confidence.
Today’s Truth: Even when you don’t have confidence in yourself, your creator has confidence in you.
Your creator, God made you for a purpose. He loves you and places His confidence in you. So today, choose to see yourself as God sees you. Realize that you’re not an accident. He made you on purpose to do good things!
