You Are More Precious than Gold

Today's card is a cheerful reminder that everyone we meet has a God-given destiny with DNA created by God for a specific purpose that is designed to further His kingdom. Some have not accepted Christ as Savior and are headed down a path that is contrary to God's design. Some Christians have chosen wrong paths that have had consequences in their lives that have hurt them and others. What is a perfect prayer for those persons? "Father, I pray for your highest and best for this person, and that Your will would be manifest in the life of this one. I pray for an encounter with You and with Your Son, Jesus Christ, that will change the course of his/her life in such a way that Your glory will show forth from this person and that Your divine destiny will be fulfilled."  God is still on the throne and still has beautiful destinies for everyone born on this earth. God encounters change lives!

All that is to say that God's design for the recipient of this card is noble and honorable, and that God views this person as more precious than gold. We are His handiwork, His poetry, His beautiful divine design.

You are God's masterpiece. He
has created you anew in Christ
Jesus, so you can do the good
things he planned for you long ago.

Ephesians 2:10

Romans 10:9-11If you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. For it is by believing in your heart that you are made right with God, and it is by confessing with your mouth that you are saved. NLT
