OUR LIVES HAVE A PURPOSE
But the Lord said to Samuel, “Do not look at his appearance or at his physical stature, because I have refused him. For the Lord does not see as man sees; for man looks at the outward appearance, but the Lord looks at the heart.”
No matter what we have been told by people in our lives or by culture, or by the lies the enemy puts in our heads, we are valuable to God. He thought of us, He made us love, and God cares about every detail of our lives. Our lives reveal God’s purpose and show His glory through us.
“But the Lord said to Samuel, “Do not look at his appearance or at his physical stature, because I have refused him. For the Lord does not see as man sees; for man looks at the outward appearance, but the Lord looks at the heart.” (1 Samuel 16:7)
We are valuable, no matter who we are or where we are from. The same is true for every person, from the moment they are born. We are all differently-abled and gifted, but God looks at us the same: with love.
None of us are perfect, but the Bible tells us God-shaped us for a purpose.
God accepts responsibility for us because He has a bigger perspective than any of us can imagine. God can see what we can not see. God loves each of us for our potential to do great things that He has planned for us, regardless of our past or present issues.
God is not going to compare us with anybody else. God made each of us be exactly how we are. We are God’s masterpiece. God is looking at how we use our spiritual gifts, talents, and abilities, and He is going to help each of us reach our true potential.
God shaped each one of us for a great purpose for such a time as this.
God is ready to do great things through you today. Will you answer His call?
Heavenly Father, You love me for my potential to do great things that You have planned for me, regardless of my past or present issues. You loved me so much You gave Jesus, I know You can do a work in me. The love of You is shed abroad in my heart. Thank You, Father. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
