Seeds of greatness are in you! Yes you!
How can we better access and develop these seeds?
Start by removing negative labels. What do I mean by negative labels? Maybe you've been called stupid, ugly, not good enough, called a failure, called an underachiever, not pretty enough, not handsome enough. These are all negative labels!
I want you to reflect on something Paul wrote,
For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms -Ephesians 6:12 (NLT)
This is letting us know that we have an enemy who wants to keep us from reaching our full potential. Accepting the wrong label keeps you from your destiny. The good news is that you don't have to accept these labels! Be who you truly are by removing negative labels and replacing them with the labels God has given to us all. What the world says about you is not what God says about you.
I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made;
your works are wonderful, I know that full well. - Psalm 139:14 (NIV)
And this is God’s plan:
Both Gentiles and Jews who believe the Good News share equally in the
riches inherited by God’s children. Both are part of the same body, and
both enjoy the promise of blessings because they belong to Christ Jesus. - Ephesians 3:6 (NLT)
Put on new labels! Fearfully and wonderfully made, above average, full of greatness, over comer, redeemed, forgiven, a masterpiece, one of a kind, victorious, a winner, blessed and highly favored, after all this is what God says about YOU!
Grace and Peace
