Uniquely Purposed

When God created us, He created us for a special purpose. With a unique set of skills, talents, strengths etc.

So when God calls us to work for Him, He simply asks: “What’s in your hand?” Just as He asked Moses (http://bit.ly/2D4J8Cg). Whatever skills, talents and strengths you have already been blessed with, can be used for the kingdom of God!

Sometimes we feel so insignificant, and not worthy enough to be used by God. But like Moses, we shouldn’t be focusing on what we can’t do, but on what God can do through us!

This is where our confidence should come from.



David was the great shepherd-king who had a BIG future.
So, it’s interesting when he simply prayed, ‘Let me hear of Your unfailing love each morning, for I am trusting You. Show me where to walk, for I give myself to You.’ (Psalm 143:8 – http://bit.ly/31ZXjmb)

He just asks God to show him where to walk.

If you’re stressed about what the future might look like and you don’t know what to do or where to turn, simply ask God, today, to show you where to walk. It’s your moment-by-moment daily obedience that will add up to a beautiful life.



If we want to get to know God better, we can pray like the psalmist:
‘Open my eyes that I may see wonderful things in Your law.’ (Psalm 119:18 – http://bit.ly/31UwhN3)

Ask God to help you see as He sees.
Ask Him to help you love as He loves.
Ask Him to highlight truth in His Word that you can apply directly to the day you find yourself living, or the decision you find yourself wrestling with.

He promises to give wisdom – generously! – to those who ask (James 1:5 – http://bit.ly/2BRgvrF).
Don’t wait a moment longer to reach out. Your Father longs to be known by you.



The world’s gone all kinds of crazy, hasn’t it?

Maybe you haven’t even been alive for two decades, but you’ve seen massive changes in politics, education or culture. It can feel kind of overwhelming. Nothing feels sure or reliable.

But God!

In Psalm 46:10 (http://bit.ly/2vABha5) He says, ‘Be still, and know that I am God! I will be honored by every nation. I will be honored throughout the world.’

Breathe a little deeper and slower today, and remember that He is and always will be the Creator and King of the universe. Even amidst chaos He reigns, and holds you in the palm of His hand.
