Do you constantly put yourself down about how you act, or what you say, on a daily basis? God doesn’t measure you the way you measure yourself. God sees us in spite of our pains, weaknesses, and shortcomings. It’s time to discover how God uses pain and start living a life that has meaning and value.
Have you ever run from God? As His child, there’s nothing you can do to separate yourself from His love. However, you can make your life extremely difficult when you choose your way over His. Paul’s tumultuous boat ride teaches us that one way God uses His servants to show His strength is by carrying them through a storm. Because once they make it through, God gets the glory and everyone else sees how when God is for His child, no one can stop His child.
How are you using your God-given gifts? Are you operating out of selfish ambition or using your talents to serve others? We were created to serve and should aspire to help others in need so we can have a positive impact in the world, like Jesus. But when we operate out of selfishness, we hinder our ability to be elevated in accordance with God’s perfect plan for our lives.
