Uniquely You

MEDITATION:

Written by Bayless Conley, a contemporary pastor, author, and Bible teacher.

God gives us all strength, yet I believe there are specific things He gives each of us that make you and me strong individually.  The book of Psalms says in 33:14-15, “From the place of His dwelling He looks on all the inhabitants of the earth; He fashions their hearts individually.”  In the New Testament in 1 Corinthians 12:27 says, “Now you are the body of Christ, and members individually.” We are collectively the body of Christ, but God has wired us each differently.  God has formed our hearts individually.  He has put certain deposits in one person that may not be in another person.  He has given one person a certain kind of strength that may not be another person’s strength. Here is what I am getting at. I believe there is something uniquely you that gives you strength and character and presence, something that makes you a person to be reckoned with, something that God has put in you.  It is a foundation, a seat of strength that He wants to move through in order to influence and to bless others. Rather than coveting someone else’s unique giftings and strength, discover and develop your own.  Remember, God individually fashioned you.  There is something wonderfully unique about you, through which God wants to bring blessing to others. 

PRAYER:

Written by Neil T. Anderson, a contemporary Christian author.

Father, I want to bloom where I am planted and resist the temptation to compare myself to others. Help me see the ways you have uniquely gifted me to serve you and your Kingdom. Thank you for making me just as I am. Forgive me for the ways I have compared myself and coveted the abilities of others. I pray that starting today, I would see the opportunities if front of me to use my gifts and abilities. In Jesus’ Name I pray, Amen.
