God Made You Good!
“This only have I found: God created mankind upright, but they have gone in search of many schemes.” Written by Solomon in Ecclesiastes 7:29
If we do not begin at a place where, from the very start, all God saw in us was perfection we are doomed to always see ourselves as not good enough. Because “God created mankind upright,” He sees in us something that we rarely see in ourselves. That in our core we were made to be in perfect fellowship with Him.
Sadly, we go looking for ways to make life “better” for ourselves without realizing all our efforts are in vain.
Life is never better than when we see ourselves as God made us and take joy in being nothing more.
The many schemes we devise to become enough in the eyes of the world simply lead to our destruction. Its only when we surrender our search for more that we find the one truth Solomon was able realize –
God made you good.
