They Did Not See You Coming
But whatever I am now, it is all because God poured out His special favor on me—and not without results. For I have worked harder than any of the other apostles; yet it was not I but God who was working through me by His grace. ---1 Corinthians 15:10

You need to understand that you are not an afterthought. What do I mean by that? I mean that in the grand scheme of God's plan for His Kingdom, you are a master part of the plan that He purposely created. You are not a mistake, and you are not an accident. And God most certainly did not make you to be an extra that is on standby in case He needs someone to fill in for something He may have forgotten. Naahhh...our God is better than that, and you were created for far more than that! You are a peculiar manifestation of His love. Your distinction is rooted in the character of Who He is - LOVE. Do not miss this! You are all who God says you are. You were born with your identity and completeness already within you! You are not meant to find yourself in this world. You are just a visitor here. You were born to discover what God has placed inside of you for your use to serve His Kingdom in this world! Who you truly are is an inside job that began the moment God first thought of creating His one and only you! From this day forward let your spiritual stature stand tall and confident, because you know that you are a distinctive light for God's Kingdom, and the world struggles with you because...they did not see you coming!
