Prepare to Read it Again

January 16, 2012

     A few years ago we remodeled our home.  It was very interesting to see how a footer is dug.  A trench is made and large cinder blocks are laid below the ground’s surface.  The footer is three and a half feet tall below the ground.  This is what you build your house on.  This is your foundation.  Once the walls of the house are built, the dirt is filled in around the footer and you can no longer see it.

     The foundation of all we do is what we think and what we believe.  Last week I encouraged you to address your thought patterns and what your heart believes because these are your foundation.  One more aspect of this foundation is what you believe about yourself.  I’ve already addressed this some but today I have an important message for you.

     You are unique.  There is only one of you in all of time from the beginning of the creation of the world until its end.  No one else had the exact purpose and calling that has been given to you and no one from this point forward will.  No one else will touch the lives that you do in the moments that you do.  You matter to all those who know you and meet you.  The lives of those around you would be greatly altered without you.  Your value is beyond worth and you yourself cannot measure your value to God.

     One important belief that you must have or begin to grasp as you dream your dreams and set your goals is that you were specifically made for a unique purpose.  You have great value in time and history.  There is no other like you and no other that can fill your calling.

     The dreams and desires that are within you; the ones that never let you go; were placed there by God.  He gave you gifts that are for your calling.  He gave you gifts to bless you and those whose lives you will touch.  Although you may question what your gifts are, they are there.  As you seek Him, He will reveal each unique and wonderful attribute.  You are an amazing creation; gifted and unique and created with purpose.

     This is true.  If it did not sink in; read it again.  Then read it again, then read it again!  These are not empty words written to flatter you.  This is the truth that you must believe and walk in.  You are not here to take up space.  I m not lying, your value is beyond imagination. 

     So today my purpose is simple.  I want you to understand how valuable and amazing you are.  I want you to know how important you are to the kingdom of God and this world and I want you to leave this day knowing that you are a new creation, a child of God a gifted vessel of the Holy Spirit.  So your assignment for today is; read it again!
