What do you do when you get that perfect gift for Christmas? You just can’t wait to show it off and share it with others. God has given you the perfect gift in His Son. And with the perfect gift of His Son, God has also given your life purpose, meaning and destiny. Don’t keep this to yourself, share it, show it off for God’s glory!
Dress your best, look your best, feel your best! Be you and be the best you anyone ever could be! God gave the Wise Men a star and they were not ashamed! They were blessed to be on the journey and shared with anyone and everyone that they crossed paths with.
2 Corinthians 12:9-10 says: 9“My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ’s power may rest on me. 10 That is why, for Christ’s sake, I delight in weaknesses, in insults, in hardships, in persecutions, in difficulties. For when I am weak, then I am strong.
You are not perfect and you will make mistakes. The truth that we hate to admit is that we all make mistakes, Admit your mistakes, seek forgiveness, work for restoration and move forward in the journey God has mapped out for you.
Don’t let a religious judgmental spirit keep you from giving God glory! We are surrounded by judgmental people! Most of the time when someone is judging, they are judging because they don’t want to look at or deal with something in their own life. Don’t let this get you down. Don’t let this get you out of the will of Your Creator. Don’t let this get you off the track that the Master has you on. Follow the star He has given you and discover a place where you can give Him greater glory!
Watch out for the “messed up mind” mentality! God created you for greatness and glory! Anything less is living way below were you were created to live. You were created by God. You were created on purpose and for a purpose. God’s grace is sufficient, so lean on it and allow it to flow into and through your life!
One of the things you will have to continually work on is your Spirit! Watch, protect and keep your Spirit pure! This is constant work and it demands that you spend time with God in His Word. This time in His Word will guard and grow your heart. It will challenge and change you. The Word and prayer are two of your most important tools – use them wisely and you will be glad you did!
