The English dictionary defines workmanship as the article that shows the skill of a workman. The Greek Bible used the word “poema” from which the word “poem” was derived. So you are God’s poem. In the writing and reading of poems, sometimes the rhythm goes high and sometimes it comes low; that is like your life. Like a poem, you are to bring some sweet rhythm to the ears of God and men.
You are a poem composed by God Himself. There may be some verses missing but if you allow God, He will fix them. When you watch an orchestra with a good conductor, perhaps a maestro, sing in symphony, they make you feel like singing. There will be sweet music coming from your life if you allow God to be the conductor of the orchestra of your life.
God wrote it in the poem of Paul’s life that he would write all the books he wrote in the New Testament. If he chose to go his own way to remain in Judaism, he would not have written all those books that have shaped Christianity. No other person could have brought the details that Paul brought. The only person that had the kind of mind that Paul had was Moses in the Old Testament. What loss it would have been to the economy of Heaven if Paul did not heed the Master’s call to enter into his destiny.
PRAYER: Lord, thank you for making me beautifully. I understand I am your poem; I promise to live in a manner befitting of my status to bring glory to your name. Amen!
