Have you ever felt like you were too small and insignificant to be used for something great by God?
As I think about Mary. How amazing to have been chosen to do something so amazing that it would change the world and eternity. God thought she was so worthy. He hand-picked her to do a job that is beyond honorable. How many of you are a bit jealous of her? I know I am. To have an angel of the Lord appear to you and tell you that you are chosen by God to change the world? What an honor. Although she had to suffer much to fulfill this honor, I imagine it was all worth it.
We are no different from Mary.
“But I have raised you up for this very purpose, that I might show you my power and that my name might be proclaimed in all the earth” (Exodus 9:16)
We are all hand chosen by God himself to do something amazing.
Something that will change the world forever. Something that will leave a legacy so great. The only difference between us and Mary is whether we surrender to God and allow him to work in us as Mary did or live a life for ourselves.
Each and every person on this earth was hand-picked and chosen for a very specific purpose that only we can fulfill.
Imagine a puzzle. Do you know how frustrating it is when you spend hours and hours putting a puzzle together only to find out at the end that you are missing a few pieces? The masterpiece just isn’t as beautiful as it was intended to be. We are God’s puzzle pieces. We have a very specific place to be and a very specific job to do. If we aren’t willing to sacrifice and follow or God-given purpose then the puzzle is missing a very important piece. The masterpiece isn’t complete, it isn’t as beautiful as was intended to be.
We have to be willing to let God work his masterpiece in us. I don’t know about you, but I want to do big and amazing things to change the world, change history, change eternity for the glory of Gods great masterpiece. I Have seen some gorgeous images in this world, but the image of His Perfect Will is far beyond what I can imagine. Let Go! Let God!
