You Are Special
“Do not conform any longer to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind.”
Throughout my business career, I saw hundreds of people who lived below their potential, because they had feelings of inferiority. These were people who had God given talents for encouragement, giving, caring, leadership and many other talents and gifts that could only come from God. So often these people did not use their God given talents and gifts, because they felt inferior to others around them. This was a waste to see people living so far below their potential. God had given them such a gift, and they were burying this precious gift, and keeping it hidden, or using it so sparingly. This is what the Bible tells us in the parable of the talents, when we don’t use our gifts and talents, that God is displeased with us. The thing that each of you need to realize is that God made each of you special. There is not another person exactly like you, and there never will be. You are unique, and special in God’s eyes, and you should never feel inferior, as God made only one of you. Instead you should always feel good about yourself, and feel special instead of inferior. It is not God who wants you to feel inferior, but it is Satan that has infiltrated your thoughts and minds, as this is how he will attack you. Satan wants you to feel defeated, weak and inferior as you will not be the witness for God that you could be. Don’t let Satan control your life, but trust God that you are special, unique, and one of a kind. Use your gift and talent to the Glory of God, and let His light shine brightly in you for others to see. When you go out into the world, hold your head up high, be proud of who you are, and let others know that you are God’s special creation.
