What you do matters!
Each step you take, each word you speak, you are changing lives.
Don’t fall into the lies of the enemies that say no one cares what you, no one even notices. Each person you talk with, each one you touch leaves a lasting imprint, one that can never be taken away.
You are important, valuable, and irreplaceable! The lies spoken around you are only because satan knows the impact you can bring. The life changing touch you can bring to so many lives.
Remember who you are. You have the royal blood flowing through your veins! Your smile can melt away decades of fear. Your touch can break off chains of additions and strongholds. Your voice can speak someone’s God given destiny into existence.
Who told you that you were insignificant? Who told you that you are not important?
Let me speak life into you:
You have been amazing since the time you were born! You are fearfully and wonderfully made with such an amazing purpose that only you can fulfill! The God of all the universe sees you and says:
This is my child in whom I’m well pleased!
You never had to work for God’s smile over your life and you will never have to. Everything you do is amazing and you have the power, the influence to touch more than you could ever imagine.
So ask Papa God… What have you put in me that is so special?
I promise you he can go on for days!
This question is one that can change how you live.
What do you CHOOSE to focus on? Do you dwell on what is going wrong or are you focusing on what God is doing or what he is going to do? It’s so important to remember that we live from abundance, we live bringing things from heaven to earth.
If you find yourself becoming stressed due to certain situations that arise remember that in John 16:33 Jesus says that ‘in this life we will have trouble’, but that does not give us permission to be downtrodden. He finishes his answer by saying ‘but take heart for I have overcome the world’. Those problems that arise we don’t have to be discouraged or stressed. Why? Because…
WE HAVE THE ANSWER!
We have the solution provider in us, He has given us everything we need to look past the problem, to resolve the situation and move forward without worry. One of my favorite quotes are “Warrior not Worrier” and its true! Worrying will not help your situation, instead it digs you deeper into a bigger hole. We get to, in a sense, ‘war’ against the problems we face, knowing that we will win and can beat anything that comes our way.
There is only an answer. It might not always seem realistic but we serve the God that makes things possible out of seemingly impossible situations. It might be time to get a new point of view. Start looking at your situation from God’s perspective without the filters that the world puts on reality. It’s time to look from above… it is much clearer from up there.
Let your light shine
When a candle is made is it perfect. The sides are smooth, wick is untouched and the wax holds all the fragrance that it is intended to have.
But what if the candle never burned.
It would stay just how it would when it was made, round, untouched, unused.
That same candle would never light up a room, never give off the wonderful fragrance that is infused inside its very core, and never be used for what it was made for.
We are the same. We can choose to stay untouched and unused as the place where we are at needs the light and smell that we alone carry. Or we can choose to burn, to shine a light, to give off our special fragrance of who we are to those around us.
If a candle doesn’t burn, what good is it. They were not made to be put on a shelf to be looked at and untouched. They are made to bring light to the darkness.
The candle rather be burned so it can bring light than to not burn at all and never know the joy of being what it was made to be and what it might have brought to those around.
Don’t be afraid of having to be perfect. The candle after it has been used is not ‘perfect’ because the wax has dripped down, but the candle brings more joy being lit than not. Our job is not to be perfect but rather to be who we are meant to be to the best we know how.
It’s time to shine, don’t you think?
Since the creation of the world, God said it was good. Ever since He formed you in your mother’s womb, God said you are perfect.
Each day as the sun rises, God’s promises over you are ringing: You were born for such a time as this! You have a purpose, but more importantly, you are loved!
From the 7.3 billion people on this earth, our father always has time to talk with you, spend time with you, and hear about your day. He is never too busy and nothing is unimportant to him.
He holds each and every one of your steps and knows each one you will make and every breath that you will take.
Don’t worry about tomorrow or the things you can’t see. When God created the world, he didn’t need anything to create it. He spoke the whole universe into existence with the sound of his voice.
What you are having faith for, even the things that you don’t see a way for them to happen, don’t lose heart. He created everything out of nothing!
He will direct your steps. He can create a road in the desert, or a way through the sea. Don’t look for what is possible but dream the impossible. We serve the God that makes the impossible things possible with one word that comes out of his mouth.
His love for you is boundless! He knows everything about you. He won’t let you fall. He will stop the whole world for you! Don’t worry about tomorrow, just remember that you are loved today!
