Yesterday we took a look at the gift that God gives to those that have everything! God gave the Wise Men a start to follow. The start ultimately gave them the opportunity to give back to God. God has given you a star and you don’t have to or need to apologize because God has given you a star! You just need to figure our your star, so you can get busy chasing after it for God’s glory!
Genesis 1:26-27 says: 26 Then God said, “Let us make mankind in our image, in our likeness, so that they may rule over the fish in the sea and the birds in the sky, over the livestock and all the wild animals, and over all the creatures that move along the ground.” 27 So God created mankind in his own image, in the image of God he created them; male and female he created them. You were created in the image of God and God has given you authority here on this earth. You were created on purpose and for a purpose and when you discover and live according to that purpose, you give God glory and open your life to His blessing.
Don’t downplay the goodness of God! You don’t have to be ashamed that God has called and gifted you. You don’t have to make excuses about what He is doing or how He is using you. Others may not understand, but don’t get mad at someone else, because they don’t understand what God is up to in your life. And don’t get mad at someone else, because God is working in their life and does not appear to be working in yours! Make sure that you open your heart and life to God. Our goal should be His glory and the best way to work for His glory is by chasing after the purpose that He created and gifted us for!
Don’t stop bragging on God’s goodness! Stop and think about it and you will realize that God has been very good to you. Anything good that has been accomplished in your life is Him, not you! Remember: God is the source and supply and you are the conduit! He does not have to use you, but He has chosen to and that is awesome!
You have something in your life to use for God’s glory! Discover what it is and use it! You will be glad you did!
