Daily Read – Isaiah 57:15-59:21; Philippians 1:1-26; Psalm 71:1-24; Proverbs 24:9-10
Being confident of this very thing, that He who has begun a good work in you will complete it
until the day of Jesus Christ.
Before your conception, I conceived you in My heart. You are My idea. A masterpiece; a canvas displaying heaven's magnificence! With each moment, I add another touch of color and sparkle, paying close attention to every detail.
I step back observing the scene and all of heaven joins Me saying, "This is good, yes very good indeed." You are My beautiful creation, take heart and you will see the completed good work.
I already see it. I see you finished. As I look at the canvas, I see a radiant, translucent color of red. A river of life saturates the entire picture. The cleansing and redeeming blood of Jesus runs over and through this masterpiece. I look and can only see who you are in Christ, a complete and finished work.
Through His blood, I see no smudge or mistake, only a flawless portrait of My image and likeness. A radiant reflection of My Son. Run to the mirror and look for His reflection. I am making You into His image.
Do you see what I see?
Father, Your Word says that I am complete in Christ Jesus and You promise to complete the good work that You have begun in me. Lord, Your Word is my guarantee and I stand on it believing that it as truth. I look into the mirror of my soul and declare that I am a divinely created masterpiece radiating the light and glory of Christ. I see myself in a different light....His light. Wow, look at the touches of purple on my hands; the sparkles of gold in my eyes; the splashes of crimson on my robe. I surrender myself into the hands of the Artist. He is putting the finishing touches on my heart.
