Devotional Monday: The Work of His Hands

Psalm 102:25



As I read this verse earlier this weekend, i was encouraged that we are all the work of his hands. In Genesis it says that we were formed from dust. Think about that for a minute, God made you and I out of dust. As it says in Isaiah 64:8, "Yet you, Lord, are our Father.We are the clay, you are the potter; we are all the work of your hand."

The world tells us that constantly that we aren't good enough, or we don't measure up. But those are all lies. Because God tells us we are the work of his hands.


We are the work of his hand. think about that for a minute. God formed us just like a potter forms clay, he formed us into something beautiful, despite our brokenness or our sin, he calls us his, he says-"you are mine" As I was thinking about that verse this weekend, I was reminded just how precious we are in his sight. We are worth it to him, and nothing we say or do can change that. God continually shapes us into the women that he calls us to be, he smooths out the roughness and replaces it with something beautiful, he brings beauty out of dust. "He makes beautiful things out of the dust"

Sisters, as you go throughout your week rest in the truth that you are the work of his hands, you are precious in his sight, you are worth it. Be encouraged by Psalm 102:25 and Isaiah 64:8, when they say, "we are all the work of your hands"

Take comfort in Psalm 23, "The Lord is my shepherd I shall not be in want. He makes me lie down in green pastures, he leads me beside quiet waters he restores my soul. He guides me in paths of righteousness for his names sake. Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil. For you are with me; your rod and your staff they comfort me. You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies. You anoint my head with oil; my cup overflows. surely goodness and love will follow me all the days of my life, and I will dwell in the house of the Lord forever"

  1. This is such a great reminder. I love the picture as God as a Potter who molds all our roughness and makes a vessel out of our once meaningless messy slab of clay. He gives worth and purpose to us as uses us as vessels for His work. What a humbling thought

    1. Thanks Ellie! It's so important to remember that God is always smoothing out our rough edges and making us into something beautiful :) The verse definitely helped me to remember that.
