So far in this series, we have seen that God is perfect and that He creates all things with purpose and for a reason. He has personally formed us and predestined the number of days we shall live and where and when we will live them. Nothing God does is by accident nor is it a mistake. Now we’re going to take a look at another key attribute of God that is foundational as we analyze who God is and apply it to our lives.
Have you ever wanted to be taller, shorter, or slimmer; have blonde hair, brown, black, wavy, straight, curly, thick, or thin; wished you were smarter, more athletic, etcetera? I know I have. At some point in life, everyone has wished for some different attribute of themselves than they have. It’s human nature. We are never satisfied with what we have, but are always looking at others and comparing. This is especially true during the impressionable teen years. At this age, we are transitioning from childhood to adulthood, and as we navigate through this awkward season we are even more prone to dissatisfaction with the way we look, act, and speak as we compare ourselves with those around us. But it doesn’t have to be that way!
