YOU  ARE  VALUABLE  TO  GOD!
God loves you and you are very valuable to Him. Unfortunately though, many people don't realize this but are looking down on themselves thinking that God can't use them. But that's all wrong and unbiblical! God has use for each one of us. He has laid down talents and abilities in your life so that you can be all that God has planned.


GOD  HAS  A  GREAT  PLAN  FOR  YOUR  LIFE!
God has a great plan for yur life. You are not here by accident, but you have a call on your life. The call that God has given you is something unique and no one will ever do exactly what God has called you to do. We christians are all invaluable parts of Christ's body and each part is necessary to get the whole body to work. <1 Cor 12:12-27> In the same way as the body has many different parts with unique functions, we are different and unique too. It's no accident that God has made us different! No, we are different with purpose so we can complement each other. Since we are different we can complement each other, it would never be possible if we were all the same.

We are all unique and just as valuable, no one is more or less valuable than one other. Everyone is valuable and everyone has something to assist with. Everyone is needed in the kingdom of God.

God has created us unique and given us different missions. Sometimes we meet christians that have a very different call on their life than we have. Then it can be difficult to understand their call. But since we have the same Lord and are part of the same body we can still bless each other even if we don't fully understand their ministry. Our calls my be different but our Lord is the same and that's what counts.


GOD  WANTS  TO  SUPPORT  YOU  WITH  HIS  STRENGTH!
The call God has for your life is also what He knows that you fits best for. You have not been called to do something boring but something you really like to do! He wants to use your interests and talents to glorify Him. If you aren't sure what God wants you to do, then pray that He will show you. Then start doing what you can to spread God's kingdom. Start doing what you can and God will lead you on step by step into the call of your life. God has a great plan for your life and He wants to use you in a mighty way to extend His empire. The Bible saids that the eyes of the Lord search the whole earth in order to strengthen those whose hearts are fully commited to Him. <2 Chronicles 16:9> God wants to support you with His strength! God is looking for hearts that are devoted to Him so that He can fill them with His strength.


BE  FAITHFUL  TO  YOUR  CALL
It ain't just your pastor or big evangelists like Billy Graham God uses, but he wants to use you as well! You are just as valuable. God can do great things through you, cause the same Holy Spirit that is living in Billy Graham and other spiritual giants is living in you as well. <1 Cor 6:19, 2 Cor 6:16> He gives you power so you can fulfill God's purpose for your life. <Acts 1:8>

It's not only those ministries that are seen and heard in public that God uses but each persons call is just as important. Some persons may be not seen in public at all but God still uses them in a mighty way in the call they have.

We complement each other and everyone is needed. <1 Cor 12:12-27> No matter what call God has given you it's very important that we are faithful in what we are doing. The important thing is not if God has called us to something "big" or "small", but the important thing is that we are faithful in our call. <Matt 25:14-30


GOD  GIVES  US  STRENGTH  AND  WISDOM
God never asks us to do more than we manage. He always gives us the power and wisdom we need to accomplish His will. <James 1:5, Acts 1:8> God is with us and will never leave nor forsake us. <Hebrews 13:5-6> God even lives in us through The Holy Spirit. <1 Cor 6:19> He will never abandon us no matter what we face.


GOD'S  KINGDOM  -  NOT  OURS!
One thing we mustn't forget is that we are building God's kingdom - not ours. Without deserving it we are saved and by grace we are God's coworkers in spreading His wonderful kingdom. <Ephesians 2:8-9> It's not about exalting ourself but God, cause the glory belongs to God and to God alone.


DARE  TO  DO  WHAT  GOD  HAS  CALLED  YOU  TO  DO!
Sooner or later you will probably meet christians who unfortunately don't understand your call. Sometimes even pastors and close relatives can go against what God has called you to do. But we aren't called to please people but God! <Acts 5:29> We are accountable to God to fulfill the call of our life. Even if people don't understand we have to be brave enough to go against all opposition and follow God. It's much better to be a fool in the eyes of men than a fool in the eyes of God.


PLEASE  GOD  -   NOT  MEN
It's very sad when pastors, close relatives and friends don't understand but even go against what God has called you to do. But you have to do the best of the situation, bless them and then go on with God into the plan of your life. We are not here to please people but God and one day we will give account to Him for how we have fulfilled the calling God has given us. <Acts 5:29, Hebrews 4:13> If you have done your service well God will say: "Well done, my faithful servant. Welcome in to my glory" <Hebrews 4:13, Matthew 25:14-30>

So to sum it up, we are all very precious to God and He has a great plan for our lives. If you let Him lead you and use you in the calling He has for you, you will have the best, most fulfilling and exciting life you can ever have. Nothing is so fulfilling and satisfying than living in God's will and doing what He has called you to do.

And the great thing is that this is only the beginning! Cause when our time on this earth is over we will meet again in the sky and spend our eternity in the glory of Heaven, where there will be no sin or evil. There we will be forever and ever. Amen! Until then we have to do all we can to help as many as possible to Heaven by telling them what Christ has done for them, so they won't be lost in the lake of fire. That's our maincall as christians while we are still on this earth.
