”The people whom I formed for Myself Will declare My praise.”(Isaiah 43:21)
In a world full of competition and comparison, we need to be reminded that we are all unique and specially created for God’s purpose thats why we must always protect our destiny, because our life must reveal God’s purpose and shows God’s glory.
You are valuable, no matter who you are or where you’re from. And the same is true for every child — no matter what society tries to tell you today. Always remember the bumble bee should not be able to fly because of its shape but it defeats all aerodynamic laws to manifest its purpose.
None of us are perfect, but the Bible tells us that God accepts responsibility for all our genetic defects. Did you know that? It doesn’t include the problems in our lives that we brought on ourselves because of poor choices like overeating or stress or drinking too much. But all the genetic weaknesses that you didn’t have any say in are all part of your life.
The Bible says in 1 Samuel 16:7b, “The Lord does not look at the things people look at. People look at the outward appearance, but the Lord looks at the heart” .
God accepts responsibility because he has a bigger perspective than any human. He can see what we can’t see. And he loves each of us for our potential to do the great things he has planned for us, regardless of our handicaps.
David was a little shepherd boy but God saw a King in him. Esther was an orphan girl but God saw a queen born for a particular season in the life of Isreal. Do not belittle yourself and DO NOT LET ANYONE BULLY YOU to believe you cannot be a better and bigger person. You are as special as you think you are!!
God isn’t going to compare you with anybody else. He made you to be you. You are his masterpiece. He’s going to help you reach your unique potential.
To whom have you been comparing yourself?
What is it about that person that makes you think he or she is better than you are or that God loves him or her more?
Is it enough for you to know that God considers your life sacred? Why or why not?
As a man thinks in his heart SO HE IS!! Does this word make you reflect on how you have been thinking lately?
PRAYER: Lord, thank you that I am wonderfully and fearfully made to reveal Your glory and manifest Your purpose for my life. Touch,bless and empower me to overcome every limitation in Jesus name. Amen
