Amidst the busy-ness of life, multiple priorities, looming deadlines and multi-tasking, we can lose site of who we are and exactly why we are here. Today's Meditation for Success #1 calls us back to who we are and whose we are and brings us back to center.
Breathe in and out deeply and behold these words. Read them out loud. Whisper them to yourself. There is power in the spoken word.
"The word of the Lord came to me, saying,
"Before I formed you in the womb I knew you,
before you were born I set you apart;
I appointed you as a prophet to the nations."
"Ah, Sovereign LORD," I said, "I do not know how to speak; I am only a child."
7 But the LORD said to me, "Do not say, 'I am only a child.' You must go to everyone I send you to and say whatever I command you. Do not be afraid of them, for I am with you and will rescue you," declares the LORD.
Then the LORD reached out his hand and touched my mouth and said to me, "Now, I have put my words in your mouth. See, today I appoint you over nations and kingdoms to uproot and tear down, to destroy and overthrow, to build and to plant." Jeremiah1: 4-10
Each of us was made for something. And that something we were made for is something great. In the day to day, you may feel small, busily insignificant, but the God of the universe has made you for something great. In your quiet times, in the center of your being, you know what that something is.
The time is now for you to remember who you are. The time is now for you to speak it, share it, embrace it. Write it down. Make space for it in your life. What is your divine assignment for these times?
Perhaps you are overwhelmed today by the economy, by the many obstacles and hurdles to your next goal. Place at the forefront, your divine assignment, the purpose for your life here on earth.
Remember who you are. Remember whose you are. Meditate on that. Pray without ceasing. Let yourself be used by God.
Question of the Day: What is your divine assignment? What is it you have been made especially to do in the earth for these times.
