Word 4 Today November 8, 2011


In years past, if I was successful at anything, I was successful at living life the wrong way.  I was an expert at being somebody I wasn’t, instead of being who I was intended to be. 

I became very good at being who and what the world expected me to be and was more than willing to conform to its ways.  Bottom line, I was afraid to be myself.  I was more concerned with how other people viewed me than about how I viewed myself, however, as Dr. Phil would say, “How’s that working for you?”  It wasn’t.

My life changed radically when I got the revelation that I was created by God to be a unique individual, an original, not some cheap imitation or photocopy of someone else.  I accepted the fact that I was who He had created me to be and I was no surprise to Him.  He knew exactly how many hairs I had on my head and how many tears I cried.  He knew the all of the sins I had committed and the ones yet to be committed.  He knew everything about me and loved me anyway, just as I was.  Now, therefore, you are no longer strangers and foreigners, but fellow citizens with the saints and members of the household of God (Ephesians 2:19).


Awesome Lord, I have been given the power to set the course of my life!  You have given me a revelation of who I am.  I am acceptable in Your sight, not because of what I do but because of what You have created me to do.  Not because of who I am, but of who You have destined me to be.  I can never thank You enough for the investment You have made in my life.


When God created you, He had something special in mind.
