I Ain't that Special!
I’m not that special! 01/25/23
“For he grew up before him like a young plant, and like a root out of dry ground; he had no form or majesty that we should look at him, and no beauty that we should desire him.” Isaiah 53:2 (ESV)
I think its important to know that when the biblical prophecy of Jesus was stated here in Isaiah, they wanted to make sure for us to know that Jesus was not going to be this majestic being here on earth. Matter of fact it is saying that there was nothing to earthly be drawn to him. Yet we read that when Jesus actually comes there was a multitude that followed him. He preached to the masses. What drawn these people to Him? It was his anointing. Bible also says He is no respecter of persons. So, how can someone be used, and someone not be used? What if I don’t feel special or someone who can be looked at to influence? This is what I believe and seen in my own life. God uses the available. Those who no matter what put God and the relationship above everything else. We want God to use us, but we are not available for God to use. Knowing all of this, I can safely say that I’m not that special. I’m just available. I’m ready. I spend my life being ready. Though I work and can be busy, I am always seeking Him. You don’t have to be important or special, matter of fact the Bible screams the opposite. He would use the least and what seems foolish to get His gospel preached. So take the pressure off yourself. You don’t have to perform, you don’t have to always have the right words, you don’t have to be rich, you don’t have to perfect, you don’t have to anything but who God created you to be. Understanding how He created you and what He has given you is so key in our walk with Him. You ain’t that special. You will never be. Just be ready. In season and out of season. So, take a breath, take a step back, and realize that though I am weak, He will be made strong. I believe in you. I love you. I am praying for you. This is the year, that if you will make it a priority, you will start seeing your giftings flourish.
