God didn’t make any dumb, ugly weird people. Period. God makes awesomeness! For real! Just look at what Psalm 139:14 says – “…I am fearfully (awesomely) and wonderfully made…” That is for you TODAY! You are a masterpiece. There is only one you and there is no one like you. You were created for greatness.
I am here to tell you that you are not lesser in God’s eyes because of who you are, what others have told you, where you have come from, or what you have done in your life. In God’s eyes, when you’re connected to Him, you are in the GREATER category!
God has a record of using those that the world looks down on and frowns upon to do the greatest things! You can see it all through the Bible and God can do the same through you if you allow Him to have access to your life!
1 Corinthians 1:27-28 – “27Instead, God chose things the world considers foolish in order to shame those who think they are wise. And he chose things that are powerless to shame those who are powerful. 28God chose things despised by the world, things counted as nothing at all, and used them to bring to nothing what the world considers important.”
You have a plan and a purpose for your life! You have a mission on earth. An assignment…a calling that only you can carry out. No one else can do what God created you to do.
Jeremiah 29:11 – “11For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.”
Holy means to be “Set Apart”, to be “Different”. We are called to live a lifestyle different than everyone else. We are called to stand out…not fit in.
The only requirement to living and walking out your calling and greatness is to confess Jesus as Lord and Savior of your life and believe the Easter story that Jesus died and got up from the grave on the third day (Romans 10:9,10,13). Allow God to be the complete centre of your life and you will never be the same again.
God has so many amazing things planned for you that it would blow your mind if He gave you the whole picture all at once.
Say this prayer with me:
Dear Jesus, I recognize I have done things wrong and now I confess you as Lord and Savior of my life. Forgive my sins and make me clean. Take away every trace of wrong thinking in Jesus name. I thank you that I now have the mind of Christ. Keep my focus off of the world and keep me focused on You always in Jesus name. Amen.
