The Power to Be You by Valerie Cheers Brown

“We must believe that God gives to each of us a calling and when we recognize it, first and foremost we must obey Him and share it with others to help inspire and motivate yourself and them.” – Valerie Cheers Brown

I commit this work to my otherworldly higher power and ask that He manage me with each and every word to line up usefully and profitably with a mission to line honestly to please God.

Lord, you are an awesome God.

You made everything.

You made the sky and the ocean, vegetation and the area, stars, moon and the sun, ocean animals including flying creatures and the fish, humanity and creatures, and on the seventh day, You rested.

Why did God make the earth and us alongside it? He doesn’t generally require us, so why did he make anything?

Extraordinary question, and you’re not the first to ask it. Lord David asked basically the same thing:

“When I consider your sky, the work of your fingers … what is man that you are aware of him, the child of man that you watch over him?” (Psalm 8:3-4).

Why did God make us? To answer that, we have to know three things:

In the first place, and you said this in your inquiry, it wasn’t on the grounds that he required us: “The God who made the world and everything in it … is not served by human hands, as though he required anything” (Acts 17:24-25).

Also, he didn’t make us since he was forlorn. Much sooner than we were here, God as of now had “organization” with his Son and the Holy Spirit, alluded to in Genesis 1:26, “Let us make man in our own particular picture.”

What’s more, he didn’t make us since he required his sense of self-encouraged. Dislike God made us to fulfill some desire to be worshiped. God is thoroughly secure in who he is—without us.

Second, notwithstanding not requiring us, God made us at any rate, out of his awesome affection: “I have cherished you with an everlasting adoration” (Jeremiah 31:3). Yes, God cherished us before he even made us. It’s difficult to get our heads around that thought, however, it’s actual; that is the thing that “everlasting” affection implies.

God is love (1 John 4:8), and on account of that adoration and his great inventiveness, he made us so we can appreciate all that he is and all that he’s finished.

Third, God made us to satisfy his everlasting arrangement. I could compose pages and pages about this however, suffice it to say that God, in his unending knowledge, made us a piece of his endless arrangement.

What part do we play in this arrangement? All things considered, the Bible is loaded with directions for how we ought to experience our lives. In any case, here are a couple key verses to recollect:

1. “Love the Lord your God with everything that is in you and with everything that is in you and energetically” (Deuteronomy 6:5).

2. “Love your neighbor as yourself” (Matthew 22:39).

3. “We are God’s workmanship, made in Christ Jesus to do acts of kindness, which God arranged ahead of time for us to do” (Ephesians 2:10).

We’re likewise part of the war amongst God and Satan, and God’s definitive arrangement to annihilation Satan. By putting our confidence in God, we can overcome Satan and his falsehoods (see Ephesians 6:10-18).

At long last, maybe the most imperative part we play in God’s endless arrangement is to go-to people to endless existence with God—through his Son Jesus Christ. The Bible calls this our “service of compromise” (2 Corinthians 5:18-19).

That is the reason we’re here. But, on the other hand, take note of that we have a decision in every one of this. At the point when God made us, he didn’t make us pawns in some grandiose chess amusement. We’re not his toy troopers. God gives us flexibility of decision.

Main concern: God may not require us, but rather we surely require him. I trust you’ve settled on the decision to put your trust totally in him—and have energizing influence in his adoring and loving unceasing plan.

Don’t just pray! Do something!

Don’t just pray for when you want something.  Pray for the good times and for the bad times as well as for thanking Him constantly for never leaving nor forsaking us.

Then the Lord said to Moses, “Why are you crying out to me? Tell the Israelites to move on. Raise your staff and stretch out your hand over the sea to divide the water so that the Israelites can go through the sea on dry ground” (Exodus 14:15–16, NIV).

There is a time to move in faith and there is a time for prayer.

Much the same as the Israelites, we should trust God to spare us. At that point venture out in confidence to show it. Keep in mind the lesson from the Israelites: there is a period to supplicate and a period to move. There is no genuine confidence until we venture out and trust God with our own lives, regardless of the amount we implore.
 In the event that they had recently prayed or asked and never ventured out in confidence, they would have been similar to a considerable medium of Christians today.
Numerous social Christians trust the Bible with “head learning.” Yet with regards to trusting God, they are standing just on the edge of the ocean.
LOVE
Love is much like concrete and once the concrete is formed it is unmovable and stays together. Nothing can break that concrete much the way love is.  When you truly love, nothing can make you feel any other way then but to love right back.
 

‘Cause nobody else has the power to be YOU.’
