We were looking at 1 Kings 18 yesterday at church and as I listened to the talk, I realized how different we all are.
Many of us would be terrified if we had to confront the ruler of our nation.
Many of us would find it difficult if we had to hide, feed and water 100 people.
In different ways, Elijah and Obadiah did amazing things!
Often, we look at other people and we feel intimidated as we think about the amazing things that they do.
It’s good to be inspired by others, but if we spend all of our time wishing we were them, then we will never find the time to be ourselves.
Let’s stop measuring ourselves against other people!
Stop and think about all the people who you meet each day. How do you make a difference to them? It may surprise you to realize what you mean to other people and how amazing you are already.
Ask God to show you who he made you to be. Listen and think about the ways that you can change or grow?
Consider who God made you to be and think about how you can use your God given personality (rather than wishing you were someone else) to be a blessing each day.
