This is my first post of the series, so welcome! Throughout this week we are going to be focusing on 7 points, one for each day.
Today’s point being;
Knowing You Are Special: God made you
Genesis 1:27- So God created mankind in his own image, in the image of God he created them; male and female he created them.
Everyone gets those feelings along the lines of, “I’m not good enough”, “I’m not special”, “Nobody likes me”, “I’m a useless nothing”, “I might as well die”.
A lot of kids today feel like they are the only ones experiencing these feelings. Even someone who is really in love with Jesus, who you feel has never experienced those feelings, most likely has. The Devil tries to entice our mind with horrible thoughts such as these. And he is more rampant today then ever before. Teenage depression has gone up more in the 2000’s than ever before.
You need to not listen to the devil’s lies. You need to know you are something. You are someone special. Why? Now we come to our point for the day, God Made You.
Even if you don’t feel special, you need to know that you are someone special because God made you. Our bible verse for today says that “So God created man in his own image”. God made you like him. 3 but 1. You have a soul, spirit, and body. Just like God is God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit. Animals aren’t made like humans. We are unique! Genesis 1:27 also says that “in the image of God he created him. Male and female he created them.” God made you special. And I’m not just saying that. You are different from EVERY SINGLE PERSON in this world. No one has your exact number of hairs on their head, no one has the exact cornea, exact personality, or fingerprint. Someone may look a lot like you, but they aren’t the same as you. Someone may act a lot like you but they aren’t the same as you. There is only one of YOU in this world. There has never been a YOU and they will never be YOU. You are special. You are special in this world and most importantly in God’s sight. God put you here for a reason. God made each of us special for a reason. You are special in God’s sight, even if the world can’t see it.
So if one day you get depressed and the Devil is bothering you, telling you more lies and telling you that you aren’t special, just remember, God Made You. And because of that, YOU ARE SPECIAL.
Next post will be up tomorrow and we will look at the second point in this series. God Bless, stay tuned!
