what does that make me?


One of my favorite bands and worship leaders is David Crowder.  I have gravitated to his music several times over the last 5 years or so.  Simply and incredible songs that lead me and others to see, experience and worship our awesome God!

Last evening as I was mowing and listening to music one of Crowder’s songs  I was overcome with one line… “what does that make me?”  Incredible thought that I want to share with you today.

Here are some of the lyrics to David Crowder’s song “Everything Glorious”:

The day is brighter here with You
The night is lighter than its hue
Would lead me to believe
Which leads me to believe

You make everything glorious
You make everything glorious
Yeah, You make everything glorious
And I am Yours,
What does that make me?

Yes, our God makes everything, and everything He makes is glorious and special.  That means you and I are the same as the other things our great God created.  We are glorious.

We are glorious based on the creation and grace of God.  It is not based on the anything we have done or anything that we are on our own a part from God.  How awesome it is to know that the creator of the universes sees us and knows us to be glorious?  That is how he made us.

When we see ourselves based on facts like this, our lives will home a much different outcome.  That is when we live in abundance.  That is when we life with strength as only God can.

For I know the plans I have for you,” says the Lord. “They are plans for good and not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope.

John 1:12  NLT
But to all who believed him and accepted him, he gave the right to become children of God.

On the playground when we were young there were lots of things said that were very hard.  Something like, “I know you are but what am I?”  Another might be, “what does that make me?”

Kids can be cruel.  Humans can be cruel.  But our God is awesome.  He believes in us.  He made us glorious.  It is our opportunity to live that truth out.  God is good!
