When I consider your heavens, the work of your fingers, the moon and the stars, which you have set in place, what is mankind that you are mindful of them, human beings that you care for them? You have made them a little lower than the angels and crowned them with glory and honor. You made them rulers over the works of your hands; you put everything under their feet: Psalm 8:3-6 NIV
You are part of an intricate plan designed by the Almighty. He has equipped you and wants to see you do great thing for the kingdom.
Sometimes we just feel so ordinary-good and happy which is great but still… ordinary. It’s hard to imagine God has designed us for something truly amazing!!! Why me we might say? But He has specifically handcrafted you with a great design. Why you?…Because we trust in the Living word— that’s the key…the ‘Living’ word.
I can feel very ordinary or even unbelieving, or unworthy at times….but this thinking reminds me that I am likely ‘living’ in a place of doubt or idleness then, versus what the Word truly tells me.
This is what pulls me up. The story of the talents. God gifted me-and you. Could I be hiding my God-given talents with disbelief and idle contentment? Do we invest only ‘a little’ into what God handcrafted in us? Or do we DOUBLE DOWN knowing we are OF God and work FOR Him, the Almighty, who can do exceedingly more than we could ever imagine?
Quite possibly our amazing work isn’t ignited yet because we haven’t fully stepped into His plan for us and for His Kingdom.
Let’s ‘live’ in belief. Let’s discover our God-given talents, know that God has a GREAT plan for us to help advance His Kingdom with them, and let’s step into His glory and do great things!!!!
Faith Infused Living… Reaches Goals Higher,
