We are God’s prized possession as it says in James 1:18: “He chose to give birth to us by giving us his true word. And we, out of all creation, became his prized possession.” What an amazing thought. Do you have something in your life that is your prized possession? Maybe it is a rare item like a baseball card or an antique. Maybe it is something that was passed down in your family. Maybe it is something that just means a lot to you because of who the giver was. Well, We are God’s prized possession.
He created us and knows us better than we know ourselves. An inventor is always proud of their invention, just as an author is proud of his book. In the same way, God is proud of His creation. In the garden of Eden, after God created man, He saw his creation and said that it was good. He was proud of what He had made. But only man can have a personal relationship with Him. The birds cannot. The beasts of the sea and land cannot. The trees cannot have a relationship with Him. He created man to have a relationship with Him.
He was pleased with His creation. The beautiful thing is that God still creates. Psalm 139:13-14 says, “You made all the delicate, inner parts of my body and knit me together in my mother’s womb. Thank you for making me so wonderfully complex! Your workmanship is marvelous— how well I know it.” He is still creating today! Take joy in your Creator and bask in His wondrous works!
