“You’re not good enough” has been a lie that has been deeply woven into the fabric of my being since childhood. If you reflect on your own life, I am sure every single one of us can say the same. The broken and fallen world we have grown up in has always had a way of shouting our mistakes rather than our strengths. We have an adversary not only after our soul’s but after the Will of God in our life.
For I have come down from heaven, not to do My own will, but the will of Him who sent Me. -John 6:38 NKJV
As a Child of God, our lives should reflect what Jesus spoke in John 6:38. We are not here to fulfill our own plans or agenda’s. We are in relentless pursuit of the lover of our soul’s and His perfect will of our life. However, the lie of ‘not being enough’ creeps back in, and we bury our gift rather than fulfilling God’s plan for our life.
Jesus faced rejection beyond what our hearts could bare. Yet, he still came down from heaven and fulfilled the Will of God. My friend, you may not feel enough and truthfully, you are not enough on your own. However, with the Holy Spirit inside of you, YOU ARE ENOUGH. We are in a day that we can no longer hide what God has placed inside of us. Rather, we need to stir up the gift. There are people who need what God has placed inside of you. There are people only you can reach. This is why when we bury our talent (gift), rather than walk in obedience to the Father, He see’s it as wicked. What God has given you as a gift, is needed in this generation to save the soul’s of many son’s.
Jesus knows that rejection is hard. His own hometown rejected him! But, aren’t you thankful that Jesus did not let people’s opinions stop him from fulfilling the Will of the Father!? Where would we be if he buried what God placed inside of him rather than fulfilling the plans and purposes God had for him? An eerie thought to ponder.
We have a responsibility to not bury the gift God has given us through grace alone. We have an order to fulfill: to save the lives of the lost, heal the sick and broken, and set the captive free. Do not let the opinion of this world speak louder than the voice of the Father. God did not give you a gift to hide, but to shine brightly before men.
My friend I know that you have had many lies spoken over you from the day you were born. Do not let the voice of the enemy become louder than the voice of the Father, where you hide your gift rather than cultivate it.
You are loved.
You are forgiven.
With him, you are enough.
