Only You Will Do
“I have known you by name, and you have also found favor in My sight.”
Did you ever audition for a play or for a chorus? Usually you have to do a bit of acting or singing—whatever is required—and then leave, hoping to get chosen and called back. You have to be absolutely perfect for the role you tried out for.
You have a role in life that only you can fill. You don’t have to audition for it, because you are the only one who can do exactly what it calls for. God has chosen you to do a specific thing. And, the best part is, you aren’t in competition with anyone else for the “part.” No one could be as good a YOU as you can be.
You could follow Billy Graham around for weeks or months, study his preaching, mannerisms, talents, and learn to sound just like he does. But you could never be a better Billy Graham than he is. That’s because God called him to be just who he is.
The same is true of you. You don’t need to be jealous of anyone else, because when God calls for you there is nobody else who can answer your call. You have no contenders. You are the “star.” You won the “audition.”
You are a unique individual. God’s Word says, “The very hairs of your head are all numbered” (Matthew 10:30).
If God calls you to the task that is specifically yours and you don’t accept His call, your blessings will go to someone else. Pay close attention to the prompting of the Holy Spirit so you won’t miss your blessings.
