The other day while the kids and I were sitting on our deck, we all noticed this beautiful bird. When it was standing on the ground, it truly looked like nothing special at all. In fact, it looked very unimpressive, but when it began to fly it exposed these lines of white that interrupted the black feathers you saw in its standing position. It was truly breathtaking to watch. We gasped the first time we saw it take flight. It was so unique and special and a feast for our eyes, but we never would have seen that if it hadn’t decided to fly.
Then it hit my heart, I also look like nothing special when I’m just sitting. In times when I am dormant and have made decisions to not be me and to not release into the earth what God has created me to release, then I look like nothing special. But when I make choices to walk in my calling and anointing, I become beautiful. You do too friend.
The world needs your particular anointing. God made you a certain way so you could do something on earth that otherwise might not happen. God needs you to be you.
How is it that God has created you to fly?
If you don’t yet know, now is a good time to ask. It’s never too late to discover that thing for which you were created. You will never feel more fulfilled than when you walk in right identity. It’s the most invigorating thing in the world. And you always feel God right there. Right there in that place of release, is where God resides.
Prayer Moment: I encourage you today to find a quiet place, and even if you already know what you are called and anointed to do, ask God to speak your calling and anointing over you again. I recently did this and spent the next week having powerful encounters with Him. I am so grateful that I took the moment to ask Him to reconfirm what I am here on earth to do. The visions and words He spoke over me that week will carry me. I will reflect on them repeatedly and hold them close to my heart, and if there is ever a question that comes, either from others or myself about if I’m doing what I’m meant to be doing, I will open my hand and look at them again. They will be a banner over my life. Today, I encourage you to receive your own banner. He loves to reveal these types of things to us. He wants us to search out our reason for living. What an exciting time!!
But those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles, they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint. Isaiah 40:31
No longer will they call you Deserted, or name your land Desolate. But you will be called Hephzibah, and your land Beulah; for the Lord will take delight in you, and your land will be married. Isaiah 62:4
