God made me

Who else but mankind can say, “God made me”? A bird, as merrily as it chirps on the piney branch, cannot say that God made it. A butterfly, as exquisitely as it floats over a vibrant flower cannot say that God made it. A gazelle, as nimbly as it leaps over the embrowned savannah grass, cannot say “God made me.”

Apprehension of our creator is a gift God was pleased to bestow. All believers, no matter their sorry estate, no matter how lofty a lifestyle, no matter how wide and far they’re separated from loved ones, no matter how faithful or prodigal, can say “God made me.”

Even more, He made believers to become His own. “God made me”…to glorify God and to enjoy Him forever. “God made me”, for this.
