Day 297: God Empowers You (Jeremiah 11-13; 1 Timothy 4)

Every person has different abilities at different stages in life.  Maybe you are just starting college and exploring possible future jobs.  Maybe you are a newlywed or a young mother.  Maybe you are getting started on your career or moving to a new country.  Whatever you are doing, God has placed you in this place at this moment for a reason.

Never let anyone or anything keep you from doing what God has called you to do.  1 Timothy  4:12 states:

Let no one despise your youth, but set the believers an example in speech, in conduct, in love, in faith, in purity.

Imagine if you lived your daily life believing God gave you the ability to do what only you can do – no matter your age, gender, race, or disabilities.  This is the truth.  You have the ability to set an example for others.  As a believer God has given you the ability to take your personal gifts and use them to bring others to Him.

There are countless examples in the Bible of the most unlikely people being used by God to do incredible things.  David killed the enemy with a sling.  He was a young shepherd at the time.  Esther became queen and helped save the Jews.  She was a young woman at that time.  Samuel became an amazing prophet at a young age.  All of these people were used by God – despite age and circumstances.

As you go throughout your day, look for opportunities to be used by God.  Never doubt that you have worth.  Who knows, maybe you will be a David, Esther, or Samuel?
