For we are God’s masterpiece. He has created us anew in Christ Jesus, so we can do the good things he planned for us long ago. Ephesians 2:10

Doesn’t it feel great when someone tells you that you’re their favorite? Favorite confidante, favorite storyteller, favorite cook … favorite whatever? Hearing that boosts your confidence. It makes you feel special, set apart from others.
Do you know that’s how God views you? YOU are His favorite! And what’s even better? You don’t have to do a single thing to be His favorite. You are His favorite because there is absolutely no one else in the world like you. You possess the characteristics He specifically designed for you to be able to do great things for His glory! No one else will be able to do that thing quite like you. Let the knowledge of that sink in. He made you, and when He was finished, He said, “This is my favorite and she is going to do marvelous things in My name!” And you can own those words with confidence because He made no one else exactly like you. Only you can accomplish the good works which God prepared just for you.
You are a masterpiece, God’s favorite!
