CREATED TO COUNT
Created to count is the plan of God for you. the Bible say“For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them.” Ephesian 2:10. You are created to count, that is God decision when he created man in the Garden of Eden. He had a reason and a plan!
Every human being on earth, including you, did not accidentally come into existence: there is a reason why each one of us exists- and the world is meant to feel your impact! There are three days in a man’s life-yesterday, today and tomorrow. Your yesterday represents your past, and you cannot change it.
Maybe your past was not so glorious, perhaps the circumstances surrounding your birth were not comely, you might have been born out of wedlock, or had a difficult childhood. In the past, maybe you made several mistakes either in career, marriage, business, and you kept telling yourself, “Had I known…!
Granted that you cannot wish away your yesterday, it is a part of your life; no amount of regrets can change it. The truth is: Your today is a divine gift, which you can use to unlock your colourful tomorrow, thereby making your life can. Have you been forsaken, such that when people of importance are mentioned in your family, you are not remembered? You are not alone! Remember that this also happened to David, who was forgotten where he tended sheep, when it was time to choose a king. But the good news is that God says concerning you:
“Whereas thou hast been forsaken and hated, so that no man went through thee, I will make thee an eternal excellency, a joy of many generations” Isaiah 60:15.
When God says, “I will…” not even the devil can say, “No, you can’t!” if you desire to make your life count, you must let go of the past, so you don’t pass away with it.
LET GO OF YOUR NEGATIVE PAST!
There was a man in the Bible called Jabez. He must have been born amidst unpleasant circumstances. He was named “sorrow”, which was the meaning of his name. He must have discovered that his life wasn’t going to amount to anything, with this stigma on his life. He decided to let go of his background and prayed to GOD. 1 Chronicles 4:10 says “ And Jabez called on the God of Israel, saying , Oh that thou wouldest bless me indeed, and enlarge my coast, and that thine hand might be with me, and that thou wouldest keep me from evil, that it may not grieve me! And God granted him which he requested.”
He eventually was one of those that were distinguished in Israel; his name came on record in the Bible as one whose life counted. Holding on to the negative past is a primary cause of defeat in life. It leads to anxiety, among many other things, which has held many down in life. It has been the cause of several sicknesses that cannot be physiologically diagnosed. Let go of the past, rather, use the key of today in your hands to unlock your colourful and glorious future!
The Bible boldly declares; “Remember ye not the former things, neither consider the things of old.” Isaiah 43:18 You are created to count! This explains why Matthew 5:14 says “ Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on a hill cannot be hid.”
What Does It Mean To Count?
I mean to stand out, to be outstanding, to be distinguished and to be one of a kind! Hitherto, you have been lost in the crowd; but from henceforth, more so as you apply the content of this post in your life, mat you begin to reflect the true image of God, to stand out and shine bright! In your career, family life, Health, relationships, finances and spiritual life, I see God changing your story and taking you from the back seat of insignificance, where you have been all your life, and putting you right in the front row of life. The good news is; Light will never be overcome by darkness; no matter how long darkness has been in existence.
But you must Define your life
Please understand that everything evil is darkness. Failure, depression, sickness, confusion, worry, and even a bleak future are all forms of darkness. However, the moment the light of God’s word enters your heart, they will all disappear without struggle! Read The Purpose Of GOD For You
Why Your Life Must Count
Why must your life count as a child of God? Consider the following, among many others:-
- God Commands It:- If God has commanded you to shine and stand out, then you have all it takes to let the world around you feel your impact! This is it!
- Many Destinies Are Tied To Yours :- Life is a link, and your destiny is tied to that of some other people. Every time you shift position, you automatically affect other people’s destinies.
- It’s Your Heritage:– Both by your covenant and redemptive links through Jesus Christ, you have a heritage to make your life count; you cannot afford to disappoint destiny!
- You Have The Help Of The Holy Spirit:- You can be divinely guided to your place distinction. The Holy Spirit will show where your life will be of great impact.
- God’s Investment In You:– God did not create you a dummy! He put inside you a sound mind, along with His creative abilities. All you have to do is to turn loose that investment.
Remember: You are created to make difference on earth; may you not pass through this earth without notice!
