Each of our lives, our gifts and callings are unique and His desire is that we use all of who we are and what He has given us for greatness.
If we are to be like Jesus, we too must understand and believe that we were created for a purpose which will accomplish Gods great plan and, we are to work at what God has planned for us so that we can bring glory to Him, the one who sent us.What is God’s plan?Salvation for the world.What is His purpose for us?To use our unique personalities and gifts as lights in this world,like Jesus, so that those who are lost will be saved.
“Thus says God, the LORD, who created the heavens and stretched them out, who spread out the earth and what comes from it, who gives breath to the people on it and spirit to those who walk in it: ‘I am the LORD, I have called you in righteousness, I will also hold you by the hand and watch over you. And I will will appoint you as a covenant for the people, a light for the nations, to open the eyes that are blind, to bring out the prisoners from the dungeon, from the prison those who sit in darkness. I am the LORD; that is my name, my glory I give to no other…‘” Isaiah 42:5-8 ESV.
The problem wasn’t that I was lost.The problme was that I was disconnected.Disconnected from the source of my life, my purpose and my guide.He has created each of you for greatness, but unfortunately, many of us become:Distracted from His purpose.Disoriented by the world that surrounds us.Distressed from the lack of vision.
Disconnected from the One who positioned us.
