Who Are You?
…God never creates imperfection
We all grow up with an identity, a name, family or an occupation. We sometimes are even identified with the organizations that we belong to and our religious inclinations. Yet our real identity does not consist in who people think we are or what they call us. It is inward, in who we are created to be and what responsibilities that we are created to undertake.
Besides your name and what people’s opinion of you are, who do you think you are?
The greatest teacher who ever lived asked his protégés “who do people say the son of man is?”
A lot of them gave series of answers, then he asked “who do you say that the son of man is?”
Why? Because what people say about you have nothing to do with who you are. It is who you say you are that matters.
A lot of people go about feeling like half baked bread because a few people in their life feel that they are not worth anything, some also feel that their lives are controlled by their life circumstances; what they have been through.
Having a hard time as a child does not decide how beautiful or awful your life as an adult will be but deciding how you want your life to be and working towards it is a sure way of becoming who you are destined to be.
Who are you?
The understanding of who you are should be one of your biggest treasures, no one will ever know you more than you know yourself no matter how close the person is to you.
Who you know yourself to be is what is called self-awareness, which decides your self-worth and self-esteem.
To succeed in your chosen career you must make a good career choice, to make a good career choice you must understand yourself; your strength and weakness. You must understand what makes you thick, your passion and your wiring. What are you wired to do? What can you be the best in the world at?
It is primarily important that you understand who you are in line with who God has made you to be.
The truth is that life Is God’s idea and we are his strategies of actualizing his big idea. We were created as a means to an end- Life.
It is important that we see this life as a jig-saw, each of us is a vital part of the big picture, without you, life is incomplete.
You are not just anyone or like any other person who ever walked this earth. You are unique, special, important and indispensable. No one can be or do what you can do.
No one has the capacity, the ability and the required qualities that is needed to build the life that God has planned for you except you.
It doesn’t matter what your family background is or your previous or present life experiences; whether you have been abuse or abandoned by your parents, whether your family is dysfunctional or that you come from a rich background. All that make up your life experiences; it has nothing to do with who you really are.
You are Gods biggest strategy of making the world a better place.
The day God conceived the idea to make you, he screamed on top of his lungs because he is aware that the world is not going to be the same once you land here.
In you is the seed of change, the seed of greatness, you are a big deal. It doesn’t matter how pretty or handsome you are, it doesn’t matter your last position in your class or amount of money in your bank account. All that matters is that God sees you as a solution to the world.
The world is waiting for you, regardless of your age. You can begin now to make lasting changes in your life, family, and environment and in the lives of people around you.
Who are you? You are God’s biggest and most powerful idea.
