As I sit quietly sipping my coffee this morning, I hear the Lord saying:
“I have not called you to be like everyone else.”
I don’t know about you, but sometimes I have a problem with comparing myself to others. Especially those that I believe are further along God’s path than I am.
As I was hearing God’s Word to me this morning, I knew it was not just for me…but for all of us!
Brothers & Sisters, we are each uniquely and beautifully created! God delights in our uniqueness. He takes delight in seeing us moving and ministering in the Gifts He has placed within us through the Holy Spirit.
Don’t ever feel that you are lacking or not good enough! Don’t ever feel that God could not possibly use you! He is abundantly able to do wonderful and powerful things through YOU!!
We may not be doing things exactly how we see someone else doing them – but God has called us to do things as we see HIM doing them!!
May we seek the Lord in the coming days and pattern ourselves after His guidance and direction and not rely on patterning ourselves after other people.
JESUS is our pattern!
“…be renewed in the spirit of your minds, and… put on the new self, created after the likeness of God in true righteousness and holiness.” (Ephesians 4:23-24 ESV)
“Truly, truly, I say to you, he who believes in Me, the works that I do, he will do also; and greater works than these he will do; because I go to the Father.” (John 14:12 NASB)
