There’s a lot of pressure on people today to look a certain way and the beginning of the year is especially full of new year’s resolutions to improve the way we look. It can be hard.

Genesis 1:27 tells us that God created us in HIS image. A fact we often overlook. Do you know what this means? It means you reflect the One who created everything. You are the Almighty’s image bearer. You were made perfectly. Let this fact be the one that motivates you as you navigate the pressures facing you today.

Did you know that we’re called God’s special possession? Think about something you value more than anything. Can you imagine how much more God values you?

In 1 Peter 2:9, Peter is describing the chosen people of God: Israel at the time, us as believers now. Because we believe in Jesus, we are not only His possession but a royal priesthood, a holy nation. Called by Him out of darkness and into the Light. This is how God sees you.

Can you let that sink in? How incredible is this view of you? Oh how God loves you!

It’s great to have big ideas of what you want to achieve in life. Just know that, actually, you’ve already arrived. You’ve made it. Because no matter what you accomplish on earth, nothing really beats being ‘in’ with the King of kings.

Without you having to try, He’s promoted you to royalty. You’ve made it big. Enjoy the relief that anything you achieve is just an added bonus to an already abundant life, and that nothing you achieve will ever beat what God’s done for you. He ‘saved you by His grace when you believed. And you can’t take credit for this; it is a gift from God.’ (Ephesians 2:8-9)

‘If you fully obey the LORD your God and carefully keep all His commands that I am giving you today, the LORD your God will set you high above all the nations of the world.’ (Deuteronomy 28:1)

We see this principle all over Scripture: God honours obedience. He’s not looming over you – big stick in hand – ready to smack you when you mess up. He’s inviting you into a life of liberating obedience. Because obedience frees you from sin’s consequences, to live life at its best – the way it’s designed to be lived. And God honours you for choosing to obey even when – especially when – no one is watching.
