Just the way you are


Don’t struggle to be what you are not instead be happy in the peace and joy that comes in being you.πŸ˜€πŸ˜€

Have you ever noticed that it is difficult to be someone or something you are not? It is difficult to wear a facade(mask) before people. Why?because it’s a struggle to be fake.

Recently, I had an encounter when I was ministering through *praise* and I was told to stop making noise. Okay, I have heard this statement not once, not twice but this time round it got to me and I stopped. However, it became such a struggle to do ministry again with confidence because fear came in, self rejection and inferiority.

But I thank the Spirit for freedom through this inspiration – don’t struggle to be what you are not rather be free in being yourself!! And so with new strength, I prayed and asked the Spirit to bless me with grace, wisdom and to restore my confidence so as to minister *His love, care and presence* *as directed by* *Him.* The next time I ministered, I did as me, as per the graces, strengths and gifts given to me. And He was faithful; He moved, He flowed, He blessed and He was with me every step of the way and I am grateful, πŸ˜€very grateful actually. πŸ‘πŸΌπŸ‘πŸΌπŸ‘πŸΌ

God is good. God is great. God is powerful. God is unique. God is creative. Consequently, so are we. We are great, we are powerful, we are unique and creative. In our uniqueness the Spirit will move. He doesn’t like fake, he doesn’t even move in fake(acts 19:13-16). He wants us to know our strengths and consequently move and work powerfully through our uniqueness.

In the Bible, you will notice He moved powerfully when people began to accept themselves, their gifts, talents and strengths.

Joshua was told to not be afraid, I am with you just like I was with Moses. God didn’t say, do it like Moses rather He said, “just like I was with Moses, I will be with you.”

Mordecai advised Queen Esther that she was in a good position to save the Jews. They didn’t need a mighty warrior at that point they needed someone who was highly favoured before the king and someone who understood and served the God of the Jews to save them and who better than Esther; a woman – yes, not a mighty warrior – yes but rather someone who fitted the purpose for that time.

Jesus created us, knows and loves ❀ us all. He knows how unique we are and he is looking to work in us through our uniqueness. Why? He needs that genius in you, that creativity, that strength in you to bring out a particular purpose unto His glory.

Ben Carson, one of the greatest surgeons we have in the world, has been used by the God to restore good health to many tumour cases. But when you read his books, he writes of how he struggled to accept himself, the fact that he had poor vision, poor grades in school, their father abandoned them, they then became so poor that they had to depend on government handouts – they generally struggled in life.

Bitterness and anger got the best of him that he became a hopeless and violent character. God is good though, that through acceptance of self, his strengths and weakness, he was able to allow God to work through him. Take a look at Him now – a celebrated surgeon world overπŸ‘πŸΌπŸ‘πŸΌ

I don’t know what strength is in you, maybe it’s enough to save your family, society, a friend, child or spouse. Your strength may allow you to be a best dad or mum, teacher, leader, professional….the list is endless. We don’t know, and we may never really know what our strengths can do until we allow the Spirit to work through them unto His glory. Alleluia. Amen.

Thank you Jesus. πŸ™πŸ½

*”As I was with Moses, so I* *will be with you; I will never* *leave you nor forsake you.”* {Joshua 1:5}

So, relax and cheer up, He’s got your back.

*#come Holy Spirit*
*#we love you*
*#you are most welcome

Thank you and God bless you.
