Today I want you to ask yourself “Who am I”? As believers a lot of the time we can get caught up in all the big name pastors, evangelists, missionaries and churches. We can find ourselves dreaming of one day being like that person or having a ministry like theirs. I want to encourage you that it is good to dream big, after all God can do more than we ask or think and his plans and ways are higher than ours, but it is also very important that we don’t lose sight of what God has already done in our lives, what he is currently doing in our lives and what he may have planned for our lives. We need to realize that we may be right where we need to be, especially if you know that you having been seeking God and his kingdom first in your life. If we are truly seeking God’s kingdom first, then we are where we are supposed to be. We can’t be afraid of the “whys” and the “hows”, you follow after God, his word, and his spirit, then God will guide you step by step where you need to be. You may be the only person that can reach that relative of yours that no preacher ever could, you may be that blogger that shines a light so bright and real that can reach someone across the globe to a person who has never heard about God in the way you write, you may be that good example in this world to a child who gets inspired to follow after God and do great things all because he or she looked up to you. Who are you? You are a light, you are an example, you are a disciple, you are God’s child, you are a witness to the world, you are the only Jesus some people may ever experience because of Christ’s love through you. You may not be called to be that mega church pastor or that evangelist that travels the world, but you are who God called you to be, and it’s important that we realize God has a plan for our lives and that we can really truly walk that out daily by seeking God’s kingdom daily and following the leading of his spirit. Seeking God and following after his plan for your life, seeking God and finding some small outlet to be used in any way you can, whether that be at church in any way, whether that be being a team leader and example, whether that be using your social media to be a positive light in this negative world. God has a plan for you, you are a Somebody in God’s eyes, you were made just the way he wanted you, so use “Who you are” and your personality and your skills and your drive to pursue God and to pursue being a light to the world. BE YOU!!!
Ephesians 2:10 “For we are God’s workmanship, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.”
My challenge to you today is, Realize that God has you right where he wants you. It is up to you to seek him daily and find outlets to be a light! I challenge you to get involved, make a difference where no one else has stepped up. Be the best possible you you can in God’s eyes and follow him!
