God has a mission for you and has prepared people for you to impact – but that can only truly be lived out by letting go of who you are not.
There are plenty of personality tests to help you find out more about who you are and what your strengths are. We often dig deeper into who we are, but have you ever thought about digging a little deeper into who you are not?
I began to learn more about my personality and how God can use it in my calling. But I also found myself comparing what He calls me to do with others who have the same personality type and calling. This only caused me to doubt, and feel like I was never going to be like ‘that.’
So, you know what, I never will be like ‘that’ and you will never be like ‘that!’
Do you know just how marvelous you are?
My guest, Avery Forrest, has had the same struggle. When she heard a message on being ok with who you are not, it opened her eyes to how much time she had wasted trying to live out her calling in the way that God had given someone else to live out theirs.
Our identity in Christ is so complex and you can find such freedom when you are good with you!
In Psalm 139 David sings a beautiful song and in it he sings, ‘I will praise You, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made; Marvelous are Your works, And that my soul knows very well.’ It is easy for me to know very well that you and others are wonderfully made!
I pray that today’s message gives you the freedom to be who you are by letting go of who you are not.
