The systems of the world are designed to take our confidence and destroy how we view our gifts, talents and abilities. The world system says, “If you’re not rich, you’re not worth anything.” The world system will tell us, certainly women, “If you’re not stick figure thin, you’re not beautiful.”
But God placed greatness in us when He created us. He put hopes and dreams in our hearts and minds from the beginning. Many of us, including me, have put our dreams on hold and ignored our passions and gifts because we have believed what the world says about us. But, God has given us everything we need to do everything He has asked us to do.
I challenge you to get up every morning and tell yourself, “I have what it takes. No matter what God has asked me to do, I am the right person for the job.”
Taken from the book It’s Still Relative, the Word of God for Today’s World pages 81 and 82*
“Lord please help me to see my gifts, talents and abilities as You see them. Father help me to lean on You; the author, perfecter and finisher of my faith, and not on my own understanding. Help me Father, to understand the great power You placed in me at the time I accepted You. The power that allows me to be self-sufficient in Christ’s sufficiency that abides in me.”
“Lord, renew my mind so that I understand that there is nothing too difficult for You to perform through me if I yield all my members to you. You are my strength and my shield. Thank you Lord! In Jesus’ name Amen.”
