(1 Kings 18)
Elijah set himself up to be different. To stand out from the crowd.
So often we make a list of reasons why we can’t … instead of focusing on the God who makes us able!
“I am ordinary.” A lot of people get stuck because they simply think they are like everyone else.
Church, you are not ordinary – you are extraordinary … God designed your life for purpose and potential. You can stand different because you are different … you are unique … there is no one like you.
“I am in a nowhere job.” Your job may not be what you exactly want it to be … but God is using it to give you the means to the way.
Stand differently … view your job as a gift from God, not the grinding of life.
“I am not good at anything.” I believe every person is a “10” in something. The Bible teaches us that “every believer has a gift” – that means God has equipped, enabled and empowered you for something.
Identify what God wants you to do — not what you wish you could do!
You are unlike anyone else – that means you will stand differently. Elijah could have blended in … he could have settled for status quo but he determined to BE DIFFERENT … to STAND as who He was! That has to be us too.
Be who you are. Be who God made you to be. You are unique.
