What you believe about creation affects how you see yourself. From the beginning of the world, God’s invisible attributes have been clearly seen. Since the first sunrise and the following sunset, people have been able to see God’s work. Sometimes, we try to deny it, but the truth is God made everything and His greatest creation is YOU!
Do you believe that you were custom built by God…made in His image and likeness, and filled with His attributes and unique giftings? God made you and I with a specific purpose in mind and gave us everything we need to accomplish that purpose here on earth.
Jesus illustrated this truth for us in the parable of the talents found in Matthew 25:14-15 (NKJV), “For the kingdom of heaven is like a man traveling to a far country, who called his own servants and delivered his goods to them. And to one he gave five talents, to another two, and to another one, to each according to his own ability.” Like the man in this parable, God has given each of us talents and they are fit with each of our abilities to use and multiply them in the earth.
What gifts has God given you? Are you using them for His glory? You are God’s gift to the world and if He didn’t believe in you, He wouldn’t have given you the gifts and talents He did. What you should know is, there is no one else like you and there is no one else who can do exactly what you can do, the way you do it. So, your divine calling in life is to become the best YOU that you can be.
God has custom designed you and everything you need is already inside you! I want to encourage you to stop focusing on why you can’t do what God has created you to do and focus your efforts on developing and using your gifts and talents for God’s glory. You have what it takes, so just do it!
