You are a Masterpiece

For we are God's workmanship, created in Christ Jesus to do good works,  which God prepared in advance for us to do. Eph 2:10

Can you wrap your head around this verse? You were made in the image of God, His workmanship. A masterpiece. You have been crafted and created by design. That design was set up before you were born so that you would accept Him as Lord, move towards His purposes, and start doing good things that put a smile on His face. You've had other options. All of us have. But at some point we all realize that someone has their eye on us. Someone is watching over us. Your life has purpose: to bring His glory into the lives of those that you are in fellowship with. As you build your relationship with Him, you will begin to truly enjoy all that comes with walking it out. Blessings will overtake you! Favor will surround you!

Who Matters to God?

Yesterday we launched a vision for the year at The Landing which can only be effective with the divine touch of God and His favor. While reading Psalm 10, it was clear that our vision is in sync with people that the Lord cares about. Here is a piece of it...

    Do not forget the helpless.
13 
Why does the wicked man revile God?
    Why does he say to himself,
    “He won’t call me to account”?
14 
But you, God, see the trouble of the afflicted;
    you consider their grief and take it in hand.
The victims commit themselves to you;
    you are the helper of the fatherless.
15 
Break the arm of the wicked man;
    call the evildoer to account for his wickedness
    that would not otherwise be found out.
16 
The Lord is King for ever and ever;
    the nations will perish from his land.
17 
You, Lord, hear the desire of the afflicted;
    you encourage them, and you listen to their cry,
18 
defending the fatherless and the oppressed,
    so that mere earthly mortals
    will never again strike terror.
