THE DNA OF A CATERPILLAR

God created us to be someone – something! We have purpose! The days of our lives were written before ever they took shape, when as yet there was none of them (Psalm 139:16 – Amplified). We try so hard to be what we think God wants us to be, but the truth is He already sees us as that person.

Did you know that the DNA of a caterpillar is the same as the DNA of a butterfly? Did you get that? If a scientist took the DNA of a caterpillar it would be the same as that of a butterfly. Our creator did that. Pretty amazing, huh? Same with us – He already sees us as butterflies – in fact He made us that way.

Do not misunderstand, I know we all have growing and changing to do. This post is meant as an encouragement to rest and find peace in knowing that our Heavenly Father loves us with an everlasting love just the way we are, so much so that He will not leave us this way.

These are some of the things God says about us - WE ALREADY ARE:

His Children, branches of the True Vine, friends, new creations, heirs with Christ, saints, temples of the Holy Spirit, His workmanship, partakers of His promise, citizens of heaven, overcomers

And we, who with unveiled faces all reflect the Lord's glory, are being transformed into his likeness with ever-increasing glory, which comes from the Lord, who is the Spirit. 2 cor 3:18

We are REFLECTORS OF HIS GLORY!

If God has all these wonderful things to say about us, why are we so quick to believe what others say? We need to start agreeing with God instead of everyone else.

...Let God be true, and every man a liar. Romans 3:4

So true!!! A much needed encouragement. It's so easy to forget it's not the old "caterpillar" we see now, but the butterfly God has already created us in Christ that we will one day see fully that we really are!

If we are in Christ we have amazing promises and a new identity to cling to!

What a great reminder, thanks~
