The Master Artist: God’s Unmatched Precision and Tenderness

 

There is one Master Artist who was never an apprentice, yet His precision is unparalleled.

 

THE REMARKABLE ACCURACY OF NATURE

 

Consider the remarkable accuracy in the hatching of bird eggs. Millions of eggs hatch every day like clockwork:

• Canary eggs hatch in 14 days.

• Barnyard hen eggs hatch in 21 days.

• Duck and goose eggs hatch in 28 days.

• Mallard eggs hatch in 35 days.

• Parrot and ostrich eggs hatch in 42 days.

 

GOD’S PERSONAL TOUCH

 

As the Creator, God fashioned you and me with His personal touch. He didn’t assemble us haphazardly but meticulously knit us together, each of us a testament to His incomparable creative power and tenderness.

“For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother’s womb.” (Psalm 139:13, NIV)

 

FINDING WORTH BEYOND THE MIRROR

 

When you gaze into the mirror and find fault with what you see, remember that you and I were designed for eternal worship, not just for seeking daily doses of self-worth.

“I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well.” (Psalm 139:14, NIV)

 

“I AM WORTH IT” BECAUSE CHRIST DIED FOR ME

 

Every company and salesman sells products from shampoo to a holiday in Bali under the slogan “I am worth it.”

Sometimes, we mistakenly believe it is to make us feel better about ourselves as if feeling better about ourselves were our most profound need.

But our most profound need was and is a solution for sin. Jesus Christ’s sacrifice at the cross was that solution for us.

In Christ, “I am worth it.”

 

CONCLUSION: A PERSONAL REFLECTION

 

Growing up, I often struggled with self-worth. I remember standing in front of the mirror, fretting about every pimple and hairlock.

It wasn’t until I encountered Psalm 139 that I could grasp my true worth. The realization that I was “fearfully and wonderfully made” by an intentional Creator changed my perspective.

Instead of seeking validation from fleeting and forever-changing standards, I found comfort and confidence in God’s love and purpose for me. It anchored my self-worth.

Ultimately, Jesus Christ became one of us. In God’s eyes, we were worth Him sacrificing His Son for us.
