God is the greatest artist there will ever be, there are approximately 7 billion people alive at this very moment … All with unique features, talents,gifts and inclinations.
O LORD, You have searched me and known me.
You scrutinize my path and my lying down, And are intimately acquainted with all my ways.
For You formed my inward parts; You wove me in my mother’s womb.
My frame was not hidden from You, When I was made in secret, And skillfully wrought in the depths of the earth; Your eyes have seen my unformed substance; And in Your book were all written The days that were ordained for me, When as yet there was not one of them. How precious also are Your thoughts to me, O God! How vast is the sum of them! If I should count them, they would outnumber the sand. When I awake, I am still with You. (Psalms 139:1, 3, 13, 15-18 NASB)
Everything about you was planned and meticulously thought out. What your parents didn’t plan, God did! You were far from accidental, allow God to perfect His work in you!
God thinks about you all the time, He is constantly planning blessings that we need only to speak into this realm. There is no one way to success, and what it looks like for you differs entirely from someone else’s idea of it. We cannot fully understand the works of God or His plans but we ought to give Him more credit than we do. We limit God to our imaginations and circumstances. Do not allow your lack of faith to insinuate that God has a lack of power or provision. You need only to put your hand to the plow believing He will complete the work through you and He will.
Everything about the earth is phenomenal and we have dominion over it. Everything God placed on the earth works together for our pleasure and enjoyment. It is so easy for us to love the unique beauty we see all around us yet so hard for us to love ourselves in this same manner. We assume that our differences are faults. We assume that because we haven’t taken the road we watched others take to be successful, we are on the wrong path. As long as you are following God, there are no wrong turns! We cannot measure our lives against the ruler of another person’s success or failures. Just as you are unique, so is your purpose. Don’t worry about who may do it better, who has more support or more resources; you are the only you this world will get and we need you to release those gifts!!!!
You are a masterpiece, not limited by any circumstance or flaw. Impossible things are happening everyday, miracles are being birthed in your very life and God is about to throw an outburst your way that will leave no doubt that ALL the glory belongs to Him. You were made in the very image of God, an image that He has managed to keep unique to you despite the density of the earth’s population. You are not an exception to His power, He will bless you too; He will use you and show His glory in you as long as you’re available believe in His power.
Be so lost in purpose that the spouse who finds you, will have to be equally wrapped up in Him. God will never bring a person your way that removes you from His purpose, so of they don’t bring you closer to Him; they’re a distraction pulling you away from Him. Don’t allow the enemy to blanket the masterpiece you are with heartbreak and confusion caused by disobedience.
