"We. His Fearfully and Wonderfully Made" - 05/13/17 - Isaiah 64-66

Still, God, You are our Father. We're the clay and You're our Potter: All of us are what You made us (64:8)

 "You" made us. Not the opinions or criticisms of others. Not the doubts that creep into our minds and flow down into our hearts. Not the lies of satan.

"You" - our ABBA. God, "You" are our Father.  Our Daddy.

There are times when we allow Doubt to creep in and allow  it to have a voice. A voice that will grow louder than His Truths if we choose to let it.  Doubt never comes alone.  It always comes with suffocation and darkness. Doubt has as subtle, but determined way of enveloping your whole being and trying to remake you into what you aren't. What you never can be.
 To forget our ABBA is our "potter". He designed and made each one of us.
 And our ABBA doesn't make junk. or trash. or mistakes. or failures. or shame.

We are His Beloved.

Doubt is satan's most powerful tool in taking your focus off of your ABBA and putting it onto "self".

It is when we refocus on Him and look about we can see how He places us within a circle of our siblings.  We see how we are able to share. To grow. To cry.  To laugh.    We are given the opportunity to dig into Him and His Truths while in His Family.

He speaks directly to our heart through  His Word.  Growing us to come away from picking up Doubt.   How can we not believe and trust in Him? It isn't by chance words we need, persons we need, become present in our lives at the exact moment we are at the place of needing to turn back to Him and His Truths.
 Looking back we can see the times our ABBA comforted and worked His healing, reminding us.  We are His design. We are "fearfully and wonderfully made". We are beautiful - inside and out.
We are made in His image.
