Ephesians 2:10 "For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them."
We believers didn't make ourselves who and what we are - God did. So be careful about passing judgment on God's creation.
Christians who think they are being humble, sometimes say, "I'm so unworthy." But God didn't make any unworthy new creations. I'm not unworthy, and you're not unworthy either. To say that you are unworthy is not humility; it is ignorance of the Word of God, and it gives place to the devil to dominate you.
We are God's workmanship! When you belittle yourself, you are actually complaining about what God has done. You're belittling His workmanship.
"Created in Christ Jesus," our scripture says. Quit looking at yourself from the natural standpoint. Look at yourself "in Jesus." You'll look much better. You see, God the Father doesn't see you like anyone else sees you. He sees you in Christ!
Confession: I am God's workmanship. He made me a new creation. He created me in Christ Jesus. I see myself as God sees me. I see myself in Christ.
