The Lord created an original when creating you, the designer you. Hand-crafted into the image of God, created uniquely with your own personality, gifts, and talents. “He has called us with a holy calling, not according to our works, but according to his own purpose and grace, which was given us in Christ Jesus before the world began” (II Timothy 1:9).
Can you hear God say, “My daughter, did you know that I created you to be like no one else on Earth? The combination of your genes, cells, muscle bers, and talents are unique. I even designed your DNA blueprint before the beginning of time. There is no one else anywhere the same as you. Your design includes My image in your heart. I created you to re ect My glory, My truth, My compassion, My peace, My love, all of who I am. Open your heart to consciously become more like Me each day, precious one. This beauty will last forever” (Letters from God for Women, author unknown).
Do not allow fear and failure to creep in and begin to cripple your ministry, thinking you are not suf cient enough to carry the load of what God has called you to be. God wants us to cast down all fear and anxiety. No matter what mistake you make or have made along the way, God has called and created you for His purpose. “Fear not, for I have redeemed you, I have called you by name, You are mine, the rivers shall not over ow you, and the fire shall not burn you” (Isaiah 43:1-2). Job promises you will come through as gold purified in the furnace (Job 23:10). Jesus even commands, “Be of good cheer for I have overcome the world” (John 16:33).
Be confident in the original you God created and know His grace is sufficient and His love overflows.
