I am who God says I am

Psa 139:14  I will praise You, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made; marvelous are Your works, and that my soul knows very well. 
Psa 139:15  My frame was not hidden from You, when I was made in secret, and skillfully wrought in the lowest parts of the earth. 
Psa 139:16  Your eyes saw my substance, being yet unformed. And in Your book they all were written, The days fashioned for me, When as yet there were none of them. 
Psa 139:17  How precious also are Your thoughts to me, O God! How great is the sum of them! 

I was listening to a song on the radio the other day entitled “You know me better” by a group called “Stars Go Dim” and it really encouraged me! The lyrics were exclaiming the greatness of God and who we are in him. A few of the lyrics said, 

*“You know me completely, You know me true, You know me as someone who looks like You, You know me perfect, You know me strong, You know me better, I am who You say I am.”

Isn’t that amazing! God knows us completely and better than anyone on this earth! He sees us in a way that we don’t  even see ourselves!  This should encourage someone reading this today, because God knows you by name, and created you in his image with divine purpose for your life. Jesus said in Matt 10:30, “But the very hairs of your head are all numbered.” Which means God knows everything you have been through and everything that you may go through. Yet, you are who you are, and as Paul said in 1 Cor 15:10, “But by the grace of God I am what I am: and his grace which was bestowed upon me was not in vain.”

Child of God, sometimes the trials, tribulations, troubles and tragedies of life can discourage you, but you need to know  that despite what you may be going through, or what you have been through. Those things do not determine who you are, God determines who you are! Even people will sometimes make it seem as though you are small or insignificant, but David’s words are so comforting! Listen to the words of King David in Psalm 139:14-17 as he thought about who he was in the LORD.

Psa 139:14  I will praise You, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made; marvelous are Your works, and that my soul knows very well. 

Psa 139:15  My frame was not hidden from You, when I was made in secret, and skillfully wrought in the lowest parts of the earth. 
Psa 139:16  Your eyes saw my substance, being yet unformed, and in Your book they all were written, the days fashioned for me, when as yet there were none of them. 
Psa 139:17  How precious also are Your thoughts to me, O God! How great is the sum of them! 

David was excited as he thought about God’s love, and purpose for his life. David said in verse 14, “I am fearfully and wonderfully made, marvelous are your works.” In verse 15, he says, “My frame was not hidden from you, when I was made in secret.” In verse 16, he says, “You eyes saw my substance when I was not formed, and in your book they are all written and fashioned for me.” Last but not least, David says, “God’s thoughts are precious toward you”  in verse 17.

These are some very encouraging words that should cause you to smile! Because God created you in his image, he predestined and purposed your life and despite who you are and what you may go through. None of those things can compare to who you are in Christ, and how he sees you! 

So whenever you go through a trial, I want you to say with confidence, “I am who God says I am! I am who God says I am!”  Be encouraged today and know that everything that God predestined and purposed for your life shall come to pass! Be blessed and remember…”I am who God says I am!”
