Oh yes, you shaped me first inside, then out; you formed me in my mother’s womb. I thank you, High God—you’re breathtaking! Body and soul, I am marvelously made! I worship in adoration—what a creation! You know me inside and out, you know every bone in my body; You know exactly how I was made, bit by bit, how I was sculpted from nothing into something. Like an open book, you watched me grow from conception to birth; all the stages of my life were spread out before you, The days of my life all prepared before I’d even lived one day. Psalm 139:14-16 Message
I felt I needed to look up the word unique in dictionary.com this morning and this is what I found: existing as the only one or as the sole example; single; solitary in type or characteristics: having no like or equal; unparalleled; incomparable: limited in occurrence to a given class, situation, or area: limited to a single outcome or result; without alternative possibilities: not typical; unusual.
Wow! Just Wow! As I read this, I began to think about how God has made us so unique for His purposes in the earth. There is nobody that is exactly like you. Even identical twins have unique differences, sometimes only those who know them best can identify what they are.
If you’re reading this I want to give you permission to be you. Not the made up you that’s been trying to fit in or be accepted. The you God made you to be. The you that has yet to stand up and take their rightful place as mature sons and daughters of God. The you that He created and designed for specific things that no one else has in them to do.
To find that you, you must first find Him. Hidden in His Word is His divine plan for your purpose. Ask Him where to start. He has given you passions and desires that He will confirm to you as you talk with Him. He said if you seek Him you will find Him when you seek Him with all your heart. He’s given you the time, so don’t leave until you get what you’ve come for.
Stop trying to fit into someone else’s space and be who God created you to be. If He’d wanted you to be them, He would have put that in you. His entire plan was for you to be you, but the new you, not the old you.
You’ll be astounded when the things He speaks in and through you, begins to show up and show off in the world. He will speak through you and you’ll think, “What was that all about?” Sometimes you won’t know, but if or when He does show you, it will blow your mind.
Thank You Father that all the stages of my life were spread out before you, The days of my life all prepared before I’d even lived one day. I thought I knew so much until I stood in Your presence and emptied myself before you. What remained was me–the me You made. The real me was actually the real You in me. A living sanctuary for Your Spirit.
