God has called you to great things. Not just when you get older,but right now. I wanna encourage and show you what it looks like to step up and lead right where you’re at in your life right now. God can and will use you in awesome ways..The question is——–Will you let Him?
Even before your were born God had a purpose and a plan for your life. You had value and worth in Him even before you did anything. He wants to use you to accomplish that purpose and plan for your life. Start to discover what God made you to do. What are you passionate about in life? What excites you? That can be a sign pointing to what God intends you to do with your life.
In Acts 9:1-15 …Saul had this terrible past. He dedicated his life to persecute Christians. But God had a plan for his life. God ended up using Saul, who became Paul, to spread the message of Jesus and is credited with writing half of the New Testament.
Know that your past doesn’t disqualify you from God using you in incredible ways. It doesn’t matter what you’ve been through, what you’ve done, or who you were; God can and will use you. So what are some things that you are holding on to from your past? Let them go and let God move.
Leadership isn’t about bossing people around and telling people what to do. Leadership is about stepping into a place that you are passionate about and sharing that vision with others. True leaders care about the people they’re leading and are concerned about their well-being. Great leaders will go through great lengths for the sake of their people. Living out the calling God placed in your life isn’t just about doing stuff. It’s also about living a certain way. If you’re going to be a leader, people will be watching the way you live your life. Don’t just be an example by the things you do, be an example by the way you live. That will have a greater impact than you know.
God called Moses to step up and lead people out of slavery, but Moses didn’t want to do it because he didn’t believe in himself. He didn’t think he had what it took. Moses continued to argue with God and wanted Him to find someone else. But, God chose Moses to be the leader. Why? Just because. Because He’s God and He can choose anyone He wants. It wasn’t because of anything special about Moses. Where do you feel like you come up short? What areas of your life make you feel like you don’t have what it takes? Know this—God will use you for great things. He wants to. It doesn’t matter why you feel like you’re not good enough. Get over your insecurities and choose to let God use you. He wants you to step up and lead, but you need to choose to accept the call. So today, discover all the areas you feel like you come up short. Turn those over to God, and pray that God will use you in spite of those things.
It’s so important that you’re being led as you lead. Let God lead you and guide you. Stay connected to Him. Listen to how He is directing you in your life. Every decision you make in your life should be led by God. The godliest leaders rely on God for leadership.
And today I have witnessed a big step of courage of some DHVTSU students, and if I may quote them, they said “We started from a small group, forming a circle of not more than 15 chairs. Then filling up a classroom or two. And now we came up with this victorious concert, our biggest event so far. I am just so blessed how God can move in different ways as far as we put Him at the center of everything. And let us just continue what had just begun. Continue blessing Him, continue working for Him. More is yet to come. The best is yet to come!! Indeed, DHVTSU is for JESUS!!!”
Again nothing is impossible to God!!! Let me share to you some photos of the highlights of the event.
It can be so easy to believe the lie that you are too young to do great things. But that’s just not true. You, right now today, have the ability to set an example for EVERYONE in your life. You can make a difference, and you don’t need to wait until you’re older, wiser, or more mature. God will use you now as you are. So, live up to what God is calling you to and who He has made you to be. Give yourself to those things entirely. If you do, you will see God do amazing, awesome, and exciting things in and through your life. Go and live life enjoying God, who He has made you to be. Glorify Him with all you have and all you are.
