We’ve been teaching the children about how much we are like snowflakes. Each snowflake is different and each of us is different, unique and created by God. In Genesis 1 we read about how God spoke life to this earth, from the skies, to vegetation, animals, birds, fish, and man and woman. It’s astounding how creatively He spoke everything that was made into existence. Each different and each with a purpose.
Today I want to share how He created us each different and the power we each carry to impact the world. God gave us each special gifts. If we look at a snowfall as it piles up you can’t tell there are millions of tiny snowflakes that are each different. Tiny, small but together they make a snow storm, a snowman, ski slopes and much more. Alone they are beautiful, intricate, sparkling, unique flakes. That’s how we are as a church family and the body of Christ. Individually we are each created in a special way, with gifts from Him and we have a purpose in the Kingdom. Together we are powerful to do even greater works that may not be accomplished alone.
Another truth I realized lately was that as He created He knew what He was doing and that each of us were created and born now not 100 years before or 100 years later. We were born for this time – for such a time as this.
“For if you remain silent at this time, liberation and rescue will arise for the Jews from another place, and you and your father’s house will perish [since you did not help when you had the chance]. And who knows whether you have attained royalty for such a time as this [and for this very purpose]?” Esther 4:14
Esther had a chance to save her people and her Uncle encouraged her to stand up against the enemy. She was the queen and he asked how do you not know that you were born for this time and for this purpose? She did go to the King and she did save her people.
Right now, in 2021 if you are alive – you were born for such a time as this. It is useless to fear, hide, become a victim, complain, coward away from what is happening. You are here to make a difference. You were created as a unique person for this time and this situation in life. You know what that means? It means we can make it. It means we can persevere. It means that we have a say and a reason to live. It means we don’t have to cry out for the Lord to come quickly. We are here and individually and together we are to make a difference.
We need to embrace the truth of who we are in Him. Glorious, is what the Word says! We are vessels of the highest honor and the glory of God dwells within us. We are not victims but victors. We can do all things through Him. The SAME Holy Spirit that raised Jesus from the dead lives inside of us. We were created to shine in this dark world- to brighten every dark room we walk in to. To sparkle, shine with glorious praise that the enemy cannot shut down. We are alive today to speak words of life that change the world. You are radiant, the light of the Holy Spirit. We need to believe and remember how glorious we are. His creativity is mind blowing and everything is different. We also create. Don’t hold back or be in fear to use your gifts and be unique in your gifts of creativity. You create life or death with your words. Let’s come together and create the miracles of Him through our words.
“Then I heard the Lord saying, “Whom should I send to my people? Who will go to represent us?” I spoke up and said, “I will be the one. Send me.” Isaiah 6:8
This should be our response to the Lord when He calls us. No prophet answered as quickly as Isaiah did. That’s my heart. To quickly answer His voice when He calls especially in this season. We are here for a purpose and to make a difference in 2021. We are here for such a time as this. Let Him flow through you. Listen carefully and let’s go together making a difference and helping others know that they are here for a purpose and the enemy cannot win when we are standing firm in the Lord!
That’s all for today but think about it and thank Him for letting you live to make a difference in such a time as this.
