Topic: Thank God for You (Part 2)
Like I said previously, Rick Warren made a statement that struck a cord in my heart. He said: “What areas of your life (like your personality, your background, your physical appearance) are you struggling to accept?” God said He created you in your mother’s womb, you are not a mistake!
I had a problem with a particular personality in my life. Growing up, people always told me that I was stubborn. Even after I gave my life to Christ, I still continued to hear such comments and it was affecting me.
I decided to thank God for my personality and as I did, I heard the Holy Spirit tell me that; my personality trait was helping me hold on to the word of God and it is working for me.
Thank God for your personality traits! As you thank God for the ones that you think are negative, you will learn to use them well.
Jeremiah 1:5: “Before I formed you in the womb I knew you; Before you were born I sanctified you; I ordained you a prophet to the nations.” -(NKJV)
Isaiah 44:24: “Thus says the LORD, your Redeemer, And He who formed you from the womb: “I am the LORD, who makes all things, Who stretches out the heavens all alone, Who spreads abroad the earth by Myself;” -(NKJV)
Psalms 71:6: “By You I have been upheld from birth; You are He who took me out of my mother’s womb. My praise shall be continually of You.” -(NKJV)
Heavenly father, I thank You because You knew me from my mother’s womb, You knew my weakness and and my strength, You created me this way for Your namesake. I thank You for my personality traits even the ones I consider negative. I thank You because I will use it for Your glory, in Jesus matchless name I pray, Amen!
