For we are Godâ€™s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.
Many Christians wrestle their whole life with crippling sense of inferiority Such feelings can be devastating are a barrier to good relationships and genuine contentment. There is however a way out for the believer . Feelings of inferiority can be healed.
After salvation , the first step toward healing is to get the Creator's viewpoint of yourself(see above verse) It clearly spells out that you are his workmanship ----- God is at work within you , and he does not turn out any shoddy products . In fact the word workmanship means masterpiece. Would he allow his masterpiece to end up inferior ? Absolutely not !!!! His work is perfect . If you doubt that you might be looking at others and thinking that you don't . God has designed something different for them Because you are unique , there is no one like you and no one you can compare yourself with. God is fitting you for a purpose like no one else's
Another step in the healing process involes understanding what God does expects of you. Too many believers set highter standards them God does and they count on instant maturity . Of couse , God wants us to become full -- grownand reflect his image but he does not expect it over night.
Our creator knows the weakness of our human frame and his is supremely patient with us,. When we fall . He excepts us to come to him for cleansing and them to keep on moving ahead. Each of us is a work in progress and in due time , God will complete his masterpiece.
