Philippians 4:13 KJV “I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me.”
We are all familiar with Mother Teresa, born Anjezë Gonxhe Bojaxhiu. Mother Teresa was an ordinary woman who went on to do extraordinary things. She had a passion for helping the poorest of the poor and for tending the needs of the sick. If you have read her biography or any of the many books written about Saint Teresa of Calcutta, you will learn of her accomplishments uncommon in her time. How was she able to accomplish the many things she did? Was it faith? Trust? Determination? Endurance? Or, was it all the above and then some? Like Mother Teresa, we were all created for greatness.
Our greatness may not have us as the recipient of a Nobel Peace Prize or establishing homes for people dying worldwide, but that does not mean what we were purposed to do in this life is any less significant or meaningful. Whatever our purpose is in this life, it’s of value, importance, and the utmost significance because God gave it to us. He gave it to us, and He equipped us to carry it out successfully. That does not mean it will be easy, but most certainly worth it, and He will not leave us nor fail us.
Be it a mother, a wife, an entrepreneur of the next invention, or a successful business venture, a nurse or a schoolteacher, our purpose and life has relevance. Seek to be who God created you to be, to do what God has predestined you to do, and to accomplish everything He has placed in your heart. You never know who is waiting on your God-given abilities!
Father God, I come before you to thank you for giving me the ability to accomplish all things through Christ Jesus who strengthens me. I acknowledge I am here to do great work. It is my honor to walk in greatness and to have the grace to do so successfully. In Jesus’ Name, I pray. Amen.
