The Courage to be Different
Have the courage to be different! Be true to what resonates in your spirit.
Don’t let others stifle or edit the song you are called to sing.
There are many voices contending in your ear to go this way or go that way but I, the sovereign Lord, will reveal the path you are to take as you come into the light of My presence. It will become a clear picture to you.
Today I received an email and it really spoke to me, so I wanted to share some thoughts from it, with you. The Bible tells us that God “fashions our hearts individually” Psalm 33:15.
Ephesians chapter 2 verse 20 says “we are God’s workmanship created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance as our way of life” Another version says we are His “masterpiece.” We are each a unique design – one of a kind.
It takes courage to believe in your music, the symphony you hear, and to be faithful to write it out accurately so that others can hear it also.
When you are true to the one thing that you alone were created to do, you tap into an inner strength, a “gut certainty” that you are doing the right thing, even when nobody around you fully understands.
This “state” of being is the most powerful in the world. It is an aspect of God speaking out through the design you are exhibiting – “He makes the whole body fit together perfectly. As each part does its own special work, it helps the other parts grow, so that the whole body is healthy and growing and full of love”. Ephesians 4 verse 16 NLT.
Let’s allow Holy Spirit to work in us individually so we can find fulfillment and joy in being who He has made us to be; and contributing to the growth of the body of Christ, especially where we are planted.
Abundance of grace to you
