FINDING YOUR TRUE SIGNIFICANCE
True significance is achieved when you know that you used what God gave you and that you did what God asked you to do.
Joy and satisfaction come only from accomplishing what God wants you to do.
No matter how large or small the task, no matter how big or tiny the assignment, joy and satisfaction come only from accomplishing what God wants you to do. This imparts true significance to any person’s life. It imparts a feeling of contribution. No satisfaction compares with this satisfaction. It is those who contribute nothing to life who usually struggle with a sense of purposelessness.
Even if you think your gifts are small in comparison to others, you can still use them! If you use the gifts God gave you, they will increase. And the more proficient you become at using them, the more valuable you become to your family, your church, your business, and your friends. By ignoring the gifts God gave you and minimizing the life assignment He entrusted to you, you will cause your life to be inconsequential. A person’s life becomes pointless when he or she contributes nothing to the world.
Don’t let that be you! God didn’t bring you into the world so you would be pointless and inconsequential! He has a purpose for your life. He wants to use you! He wants you to be a significant part of His plan.
The Bible teaches that God had plans for you long before your parents conceived you. He was making plans for you even before you were formed in your mother’s womb! In fact, God chose you before the first layers of the earth’s foundation were laid (Ephesians 1:4).
Think of it! Before there was an earth or any part of creation, God was already looking into the future, anticipating your life. Jeremiah 29:11 declares, “For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the Lord, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end.”
David said in Psalm 139:15,16 that God’s eyes were on you even in your mother’s womb: “My substance was not hid from thee, when I was made in secret, and curiously wrought in the lowest parts of the earth. Thine eyes did see my substance, yet being un perfect; and in thy book all my members were written, which in continuance were fashioned, when as yet there was none of them.”
When your flesh rants and raves that you’re not worthy enough to be used, you need to take authority over your flesh and tell it to shut its stupid mouth! You need to say, “God planned a great future for me. He wants to use me. I’m not going to listen anymore to this foul garbage from my lying flesh and un renewed emotions.
I have an awesome destiny! As a matter of fact, I’m a significant part of God’s plan.”
If you’re not used by God, it’s only because you didn’t accept His assignment and make the necessary changes to flow with His program.
Don’t listen to your filthy, stinking, lying, fibbing flesh anymore! You are exactly the person God wants to use. And if you’re not used by God, it’s only because you didn’t accept His assignment and make the necessary changes to flow with His program. He’s calling out to you all the time, saying, “Get up and jump in the race! I want you. I’m calling you to be a part of My team.”
There is too much at stake for you to make the mistake of sitting around and feeling sorry for yourself. There is too much to lose by stagnating in a pool of bad memories where you constantly reflect on all the bad things that have happened to you.
There are reasons for your current situation, but there are no excuses.
