A unique purpose for a unique you
September 2, 2009
For you formed my inward parts; you knitted me together in my mother's womb.
You may think it cliché, but I'm going to tell you anyway: You are God's unique creation.
Just think about it. Of the nearly 7 billion people who live on this planet, you are completely unique. There is no one else exactly like you! This is extraordinary news, especially in a throw-away society like ours.
But our God is not like that. No, we are precious to him and he has created us for a purpose… to do something great for his glory.
Now, you might say, "Oh, I don't do much. I'm in a small place doing a small thing." Well, why not look at it another way? Perhaps you could say, "I do a small thing in a small place in a great way for the glory of God!"
Do you see the difference? You are a child of God and he has planted seeds of greatness in you. And you have everything you need in life to fulfill God's plan and purpose for your life!
Right now, celebrate that God delighted in creating you. Rejoice that you are loved by him and that you are irreplaceable to him. And trust him to help you fulfill his unique purpose for your life.
GOD HAS PLANTED SEEDS OF GREATNESS IN YOU.
OUR THANKS TO YOU!
Do the words rested... peaceful... and refreshed describe you today? Or do the words stressed... rushed... and pressured better describe your way of life?
If you're like most Christians, you'd probably have to admit those last three words more accurately describe your life most of the time!
The good news is that it doesn't have to be this way... even when your life is one big pressure-cooker. And in my new book, Pause: Resting in God Instead of Stressing Out, I'll show you why.
Based on the principles from Paul's letter to the Philippians and Psalm 23, Pause: Resting in God Instead of Stressing Out will help you find true peace and rest in a world that is anything but peaceful and restful. It's the perfect "pause" button you need!
So please request your copy of Pause: Resting in God Instead of Stressing Out when you give online today! --Jack Graham
