Different but NOT alone
We often question our existence and our purpose. We ask God why are we here sometimes out of desperation and confusion.
We believe that our existence was possibly a mistake or a result of a slip up, or that somehow God made an error.
We fall into a depression because we don’t believe that we are un-needed, irrelevant, worthless, so what’s the use of living? The thought of suicide as crept into the mind of some many people (believers and unbelievers alike).
But oh how WRONG you are!!.
GOD is WITHOUT mistake! Regardless of HOW you were CONCEIVED you have a PURPOSE!
As for God, his way is perfect: the word of the Lord is tried: he is a buckler to all those that trust in him.
Psalms 18:30 KJV
It blows my mind, and leaves me speechless how every individual was created to be different and with purpose. Don’t think lightly on the word “created”and that this creation was some “cookie cutter” conveyor belt, factory type of creation. But you are God’s Craftsmanship! You took SKILL, EXPERTISE!
So how could one that was carefully and meticulously made be a mistake?
YOU AREN’T – You were created after God’s OWN likeness!
Everyone has a talent/gift that God has given. We just have to figure out what that gift/talent is. (Roman’s 12:6)
What’s your purpose?
Even every one that is called by my name: for I have created him for my glory, I have formed him; yea, I have made him.
(Isaiah 43:7 KJV)
Everyone’s (yes EVERYONE) main purpose is to worship and praise God! We are called to minister the Gospel of Jesus Christ to the outermost parts of the earth. You don’t have to a Pastor of a church to Minister to others the good news!
There are several ways to minister the Gospel; word of mouth, song, dance, poetry, social media, writings (books, letters, BLOGS, plays etc), movies, you name it. There are so many different ways and avenues of witnessing or telling someone about the Love of Jesus Christ, salvation, repentance etc, that you can get creative.
Whatever your gift is, you can use that to glorify God and that can be your witness.
However the biggest witness of all is your Life! How you live your life is a reflection of how you treat God!
This is why it’s so important to not believe the lies that say that we are nothing, because if we were created in God image than all those negative comments would apply to Christ and they DON’T.
GOD IS royalty, and we are heirs of Christ so, so are we.
It is important to constantly stay in the word of God, and to consistently pray. If we are doing this we can be sure to keep negative thoughts and emotions out of reach.
If you are searching for your talents and gifts you must stay in communication with God. Always be clear (of sin), and distractions, so that you can hear God’s response to your petition. He DOES listen and he will respond. (James 5:16, Psalms 34:15, Matthew 6:6)
Also, praise is a weapon! Praise and worship rebuilds, refreshes, delivers, recharges, heals, sets free, and breaks chains of bandage all through the power of the Holy Ghost. So take advantage of the abilities that God has given you.
