|God’s Unique Role for Your Life – Part 1
By Greg Sanders
Psalm 139:14 I will give thanks to you, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made. Your works are wonderful. My soul knows that very well.
God only made one of you. You are not an accident. He created you uniquely for His Kingdom purpose here on earth. He designed you to not only know the joy of fellowship with Him but also the fulfillment of functioning in His plan.
Many people spend days, weeks, months, and even years struggling to discover their unique role in the body of Christ. I actually think we make finding God’s plan for our life a little more difficultly than He intended. The reason we make finding our role so hard is that we search for a unique role that will validate the divine desire within us. You try role after role only to discover that no one role we play actually fits quite right. Why is that?
God’s uniqueness for your life is not in the role you fill, but rather in the uniqueness you bring to the role. When you find yourself filling any role there is a natural desire to fill that role to the expectations of other people or perhaps match the role of your predecessor. However, God did not design you like another person, so you are setting yourself up for failure if you expect yourself to function in the same manner as someone else. Perhaps a better prayer to pray about finding God’s unique role for your life is not about only choosing which role to fill. Perhaps a better question to ask is, “How can my uniqueness bring God glory in what I am doing today?”
Today’s Challenge: Recognize that you have been strategically designed by God to fill a unique role in His Kingdom. Pray that today God will use your uniqueness in every role you may play to bring glory to Him.
