Everyone Sing Along
“The fear of mankind is a snare, but the one who trusts in the Lord is protected.”
– Proverbs 29:25
A few weeks ago, we were enjoying some time with some of our kids and grandkids. Then we heard this sweet little voice from our, just turned 3, granddaughter, who loves to sing belting out these words, “I am who God says I am! I am who God says I am!” I am not sure if there were any other words to that song; however, the words she sang were so important for her to know. What a wonderful truth to build within her spiritual foundation…I am who God says I am!
How often do we play the comparison game? Maybe you are one that measures your worth by your accomplishments compared to other’s accomplishments? Or is what other people think of you that weighs heavily on how you see yourself?
Evaluating ourselves according to the world’s standard is a terrible way to live. Proverbs 29:25, “The fear of mankind is a snare, but the one who trusts in the Lord is protected.” God’s word is truth and we are hardly insignificant to our Heavenly Father. We are His creation—created in His image.
The skies at night lately have been so incredible, the stars are so bright and bold. Just look at the sky this evening and observe God’s creation. The One who created the heavens also created us. Ephesians 2:10 tells us that we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works. Deuteronomy 14:2 tells us that we are His treasured possession. Zephaniah 3:17 tells us that He rejoices over us. Our very existence reveals God’s glory. We are His creation. We are His treasured possession. We belong to Him. We are who God says we are!
Who we are in Christ can help point others to Him and their own significance in our Creator’s eyes. He calls us by name. May we hear His voice above all the others. May we too sing, I am who God says I am!
As schools begin, I challenge you to find ways to teach the children God has placed in your life to know that they are who God says they are, not who the world says they are.
Pray: Father, today may we recognize Your creation all around us and be reminded that You, the creator of the heavens and the earth, created us to bring glory to You and point others to know You. Remind us today that we are who You say we are.
