Each one of us is a specialist
1 Corinthians 7:20 - Let every man abide in the same calling wherein he was called.
Each one of us has come to know the Lord from different habitats. We have a different ways of living, different mind sets, different approaches.
Let me give you an example from the Bible - David.
Even before David was anointed by Samuel, the Lord was training David with the sling. As a shepherd he had mastered the sling so as to use it as an impacting tool in God's plan for him. He defeated Goliath with a sling and came into the limelight of all.
I too come from a scientific temperament, computer industry, and thought I had worldly answers to most questions. First God humbled me in my area of self knowledge and helped me use my scientific and IT background to understand His Word, His world and helped use the ability given to me to evangelize throughout the world.
You too are special - you have a testimony in you which is very important for God's Kingdom and the Lord wants you to share that with others. He will clean or bring down the unwanted and use the ability given to you is a very special way.
Although each one of us is special in our working, yet we work in a limited callings and on a single narrow path. So do not try to imitate any other man but Christ in whom all was and is in full. In the start you may like people did Paul but as you grow spiritually be that special which God has called you to be.
[ Prayer Starter ]
Father God, I thank You for making me special. I have a testimony in me which You want me to share with the world, help me fulfill your desire. Give me the courage to go out where You lead me and testify how great, mighty, merciful and wonderful You are. I ask this in Jesus' Name, Amen.
