Joel Osteen through the day feeling less than or inferior. You’ll have that spring in
your step, that “You go, girl!” attitude.
Beauty is not in how thin or tall you are, how perfect you look. Beauty is in being who God made you to be with confidence. If you’re a size 4, great. If you’re a size 24, great. Take what you have and make the
most of it.
God made you as you are on purpose. He gave you your looks, your height, your skin color, your nose, your personality.
Nothing about you is by accident. You didn’t get overlooked. You didn’t get
left out. God calls you His masterpiece. Instead of going around feel-ing down on yourself, unattractive, too tall, too short, not enough of this, or too much of that, dare to get up in the morning and say, “I
am a masterpiece. I am created in the image of Almighty God.”
David said in Psalm 139, “God, I praise You because You have made me in an amazing way. What You have done is wonderful.”
Notice David’s “I am”s. He was saying, not in pride but in praise to God, “I am wonderful. I am amazing. I am a masterpiece.” That goes against human nature. Most of us think, There’s nothing amaz-ing about me. Nothing wonderful. I’m just average. I’m just ordinary.
But the fact is there is nothing ordinary about you. You have a fin-gerprint that nobody else has. There will never be another you. Even if you have an identical twin, somebody who looks exactly like you,
they don’t have your same personality, your same goals, or even your same fingerprints. You are an original. When God made you, He threw away the mold. But as long as you go around thinking, I’m
just average. I’m just one of the seven billion people on the earth. There’s
nothing special about me, the wrong “I am” will keep you from rising higher.
