I want to talk to you today about A Masterpiece In The Making. Some people live with this nagging feeling on the inside, telling them something is wrong with them and how they don't measure up. But the scripture (Isaiah 64:8) says, "God is the potter and we are the clay". He controls the process: when we change, how fast we change. The key is to accept yourself while God is in that process of changing you. He's taken you from glory to glory. You have to learn to enjoy the glory that you're in right now.
Paul said in Ephesians you are God's masterpiece. It's interesting: a masterpiece never makes itself. The Mona Lisa had a painter, Leonardo Da Vinci. The statue of David had a sculptor, Michelangelo. Without Da Vinci that's just an ordinary canvas, some paint, brushes, no big deal. Without Michelangelo it's just a big piece of stone. Someone could have looked at it and thought, "There's nothing special about this rock". What made the difference was the maker.
The good news is: you have a maker, you have a designer. It's not Michelangelo, it's not Da Vinci, your maker is the Most High God. It's not up to you to become a masterpiece, that's your maker's job. You don't have to strive, perform and live under all this pressure. You have a designer that's making you and molding you. He knows exactly what you need, when you need, where you need it. You can relax, knowing that you're a masterpiece in the making.
The enemy would love for you to go through life feeling like you don't measure up, you don't deserve to be blessed. Don't believe those lies, you are a masterpiece in the making. God knew everything about you, and he still approves you. He knew every flaw, every shortcoming, and he still accepts you.
