Daily Devotional for Friday August 24, 2018


Ephesians 2:10 – “For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand so that we would walk in.” (NASB)


I stood in awe at the craftsmanship; the workmanship that went into his project astounded me. It was flawless. He had taken the time to cut little pieces of wood, different kinds of wood, to make an unbelievable bed for him and his wife. I speak of my son-in-law who is gifted in woodworking. He is a true craftsman when it comes to working with wood. I can only say that it's a gift! The evergreen trees, the moose, and all that he put into the head and footboards are beautiful. Today's scripture speaks that we in fact are God's workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works. Sure, we may falter from time to time, but if we get up, dust ourselves off, and begin again, we too can become beautiful people in Christ. I could see Jeremy's touch upon the bed that he created. When I look at people, I can see God's touch upon us all. If you're having a bad day or maybe question what your purpose is here on earth, think about the fact that God created us and prepared beforehand that we would walk in the gifts He has given us. Don't listen to the world who says we can't. Listen to God who says we can because He created us.
