From The Book Don’t Judge A Book By Its Cover
You Are Here
Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, and before you were born I consecrated you; I have appointed you a prophet to the nations.
If you’re still alive and still breathing, there is still a life purpose that you’re supposed to fulfill and a reason for your being here.
A lot of people when they were children said: “When I grow up I want to be a nurse or I want to be a doctor, I want to help the sick and the poor.” Some were born with the desire to help and heal others and travel around the world to help the poor.
Then when they grow up, they forget about these dreams and think that they were just stupid childhood dreams, but there is no such thing. Because sometimes God sows a seed on the inside of us when we are children, which may not grow and bloom into anything before we get older and before we are ready.
If you’ve had a dream of helping, saving, and healing people when you were younger, now is the time to bring life into that dream again.
Stop Making Excuses
There are many people we hear about in the Bible that got called by God. There are also several stories about people who got the call but made several excuses about why they couldn’t answer God’s calling on their life.
Some made excuses like in Luke 14: There were several people invited to a banquet and to eat a big dinner, and we can compare this to being invited to God’s kingdom and to serve Him by fulfilling the calling He has on our life, like many get the chance to.
In the story they all alike began to make excuses. The first one said to him, “I have bought a piece of land and I need to go out and look at it; please consider me excused.” Another one said, “I have married a wife, and for that reason I cannot come.”
A lot of them made excuses, but none of these excuses were valid, because if God calls you, it means that you are ready and you have what it takes.
What is the excuse you are using for not being able to do what God is calling you to do? And yes, it is an excuse, because everything God tells you to do, you are able to do. God has given you and will give you everything you need to fulfill your destiny and life purpose.
Yes, it may involve some sacrifice and work done now, but it will reap a good harvest for you and for other people around you later. And in fact, you will never feel truly happy living your life outside of your purpose.
Your soul will not be fulfilled or really satisfied until it has fulfilled its destiny. Would you risk losing the chance to do something great for God just to spare yourself a little bit of discomfort, work, or sacrifice?
Would you risk living a life you were not purposed to live out of the fear of what others would think if you dared to step out and express your uniqueness and fulfill your destiny?
If I were you, I would dare to step out and be different for God, dare to go through some discomfort and sacrifice and see all the great rewards He has in store for you if you do.
Whatever God calls you to do you will be able to do, it’s time to stop making excuses. You can do it, you are ready, and you have God Almighty giving you the strength to do it. So what are you waiting for?
2 Thessalonians 1:11:
With this in mind, we constantly pray for you, that our God may count you worthy of his calling, and that by his power he may fulfill every good purpose of yours and every act prompted by your faith.
Don’t Let Other People Discourage You
If you can’t feed a hundred people, then feed just one.
People are always going to try to convince you that there’s no use in changing, there’s no use in going out there and doing good and helping.
The same thing happens to other people out there who also have a possibility of doing good and helping, and if enough people think like this, then nobody goes out there to help all of those people who are in need.
But it’s time to change our thinking, because the power of one is strong, the difference that one person can make is underestimated. And when several people come together and spread their light, darkness dissolves.
Just see the great people we have in history who have made their mark on society, and hundreds of years later, they are still affecting us, even though they were just one person. Jesus was only one man, and he have been affecting generations after generations with his wisdom, and so have Mother Theresa, Buddha, Mohammed, and Dalai Lama.
Through God’s powers it is possible to affect our society and the people around us. Don’t let anyone discourage you or talk you out of fulfilling your destiny and taking your part of the responsibility in making the world a better place to live.
No one can make you feel inferior without your consent.
