Made To Stand Out

You are the light of the world — like a city on a mountain, glowing in the night for all to see. –Matthew 5:14 NLT

With God’s light shining through your life, you can offer a glimpse of the life-changing hope, peace and joy that comes from knowing Christ. In a world full of darkness, the light which shines through you is often the spark used to ignite the reality of God’s love in another person’s heart. When the Adversary of your soul tries to use doubt, insecurity or condemnation to make you shrink back, remember this is not God’s will for your life. Your purpose in Christ is as distinctive as your fingerprint; and you do not have to settle for being mediocre or ordinary. Your uniqueness is part of what makes you extraordinary; so do not let yourself or others cause you to live small. God knew what He was doing when He created you; remember you serve a big God who desires to do big things in and through you. God never intended for humans to be cookie cutter people who all think, feel and live exactly the same. You are uniquely made.

You were not called to just fit in or be invisible – you are not just another face in the crowd. The Holy Spirit dwells within you and you are the light of the world, so it is time to shine and get used to the fact you were made to stand out.

Prayer Focus

  • Pray for the strength to resist doubt and insecurity so God’s light can shine brightly through your life.
  • Ask God to show you some of the ways you can stand out and make a difference with your life.
