“I knew you before I formed you in your mother’s womb.
Before you were born I set you apart
and appointed you as my prophet to the nations.”
Jeremiah 1:5 (NLT)
We all want to make a difference; do something of lasting value and impact, be involved in doing things that make our lives count and we often crave recognition and praise for other people. It is however vital to remember that our eternal significance is not rooted in doing things that others see as important. God wants us to experience real significance through His unconditional love and total acceptance. Each one of us has been designed by God for a special purpose; fashioned individually and extremely loved.
So loved because He, Himself made us, He knows us by name and has called us to have an actual relationship with Him. A relationship that will see to our refining and transformation into what God wants us to be. You were made specially and loved uniquely. Do not ever forget that. You were uniquely formed to solve unique problems that no one else would have been able to solve.
What a joy to know that God has placed graces in us that would have effect beyond us. Possibilities that would put smiles on the faces of people, and cause their hearts to leap for joy. Next time you are tempted to get depressed by comparing yourself with other people, remind yourself that you are individually fashioned and loved extremely by God.
My declaration and confession: I was made specially and specifically, and I embrace my unique abilities and talents. Today I declare that I would use my unique abilities to honor God and bless humanity.
Ignite Thought: Every one of us is unique, a one-of-a- kind, special, limited edition!!
