Ephesians 2:10, a verse you will no doubt see again several times in this volume says that we are God’s workmanship. Consider all that He has made and yet He made humanity last and best. If you are His workmanship, you are a masterpiece. People say God can do anything and everything and that is not entirely true. There are a few things that are outside his nature. For example, God cannot fail. Everything He makes works by His perfect design and He made you. The rest of the verse says we were created in Christ Jesus. We were created in and by our perfect Savior, and we were created to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do. He created you individually, on purpose for a purpose. That purpose is a big part of the meaning of you life. He equipped you to do something good in this world, and He put in you, what you need to do what He has called you to do.

You might see a flaw in what I just said, “I feel called to do “x” but I don’t have this thing, trait or quality that I need to get it done.” That may be true, but did you notice the verse is plural. His plan is not for us alone. We were also created to be in community. We will cover this more in a later chapter, but for now suffice it to say, God will put into your life the components you are lacking. through people, new gifts or a multitude of other ways. Our duty today is to take the next right step, trusting that God made you to be enough and that He is more than enough.
