You Are Not a Mistake!

“Is Life Worth Living?”

Jeremiah 1:5

“I knew you before I formed you in your mother’s womb. Before you were born I set you apart and appointed you as my prophet to the nations.”

YOU ARE NOT A MISTAKE!

YOU ARE NOT A MISTAKE!

YOU ARE NOT A MISTAKE!

YOU ARE NOT A MISTAKE!

YOU ARE NOT A MISTAKE!

YOU ARE NOT A MISTAKE!

YOU ARE NOT A MISTAKE!

Yes, today I need someone to know this – YOU ARE NOT A MISTAKE! You are perfect the way you are. God is not in the business of producing rejects or making mistakes. Just because your family, friends or acquaintances rejected you – It DOESN’T make you a mistake. Just because you were born outside of wedlock or you were a product of a one nightstand – it DOESN’T make you a mistake. Just because you were almost aborted, or maybe were given up for adoption – It DOESN’T make you a MISTAKE. Just because you were overlooked in school, at home,  in social networks, in the workplace, or even in the religious circles – It DOESN’T make you a reject or a mistake. Just because you are SINGLE, STILL SEARCHING or maybe DIVORCED – It DOESN’T make you a mistake.  Whatever it is you’ve been through, going through or about to go through – It DOESN’T makes you a MISTAKE. Even if people or situations make you think otherwise –Always know this – YOU ARE NOT A MISTAKE!

To God you are PERFECT; A master plan well thought of before creation, You are the best thing God has ever created. He saw your life from A to Z before you ever got here – So YOU ARE NOT A MISTAKE! God created you in HIS IMAGE. And guess what? – His IMAGE is perfect –flawless.

Sometimes when life seems to be going in an unfriendly direction we are quick to think that our lives are a mistake, we think that our lives don’t matter to God – But NO! You are wrong my friend. Your life matters more than anything else in this world to God. God KNEW you before even creating you. He perfected His plan for your life before you were even formed in your mother’s womb.

There was a time in my life when I wondered, “Is life worth living?” Circumstances had robbed me of my zeal or will to live. In my mind, death was the only option and way out. For some reason, God in me wasn’t about to let that happen, His spirit would encourage me daily– Your life matters – Death is not an option – Choose Life. In my darkest moment Holy Spirit encouraged me with the WORD that says  “I will live to declare the works of the Lord, in the land of the living”. Whenever, thoughts of giving up overwhelmed me; my confession was “ I will live to declare the works of the Lord in the Land of the living” . The more I spoke His WORD, the more LIFE started to manifest in me. Bit by bit, the desire to live again began to grow. Death was no longer an option – LIFE and only LIFE in its fullness was my one and only option. At my weakest, God’s Word was alive in me and become my strong tower to fight off the negativity.

Sometimes when life is hard; we as humans have a tendency of confessing negativity. I know I have, but Holy Spirit changed my spoken word during the hard season of my life. Today I want  to encourage you to change not only  your spoken word over your life BUT also your thought pattern in the midst of of it all. Instead of speaking negativity to an already negative situation, I want to encourage you to think and speak “Life”; I want you to think and speak Positively, I want you to think and speak God and His WORD into your situation.

My husband always says “If you have nothing positive to say, better you remain quiet until you can SPEAK POSITIVELY, than to speak more negativity to a situation”. I agree with his statement. Because, the more we confess negativity, the more negative the situation will appear to be (even if it was never negative to begin with).

We should be very careful what we MAGINIFY in our heart and mind when dealing or facing certain things – .Because what we magnify in our hearts eventually becomes our reality.

Speaking Life, Speaking God’s word in a negative situation calls forth Life into it. We shake off the power negative things have by being positive and speaking LIFE even over dark and discouraging times. I dare you to prophesy LIFE. Speak LIFE boldly into your situation. Whatever challenges that comes your way; I want you to focus on God. Keep your EYES fixed on Him. God is BIGGER than anything that the world may throw at you.

There’s nothing that can happen to us that God cannot change/turnaround for our good and glorification of His name. You are no surprise or accident. You are the Creator’s masterpiece and He loves you dearly. No matter what you go through, know this “YOU ARE NOT A MISTAKE!”

GOD SAYS”

Isaiah 43:2- 3a (NIV)

When you pass through the waters,
I will be with you;
and when you pass through the rivers,
they will not sweep over you.
When you walk through the fire,
you will not be burned;
the flames will not set you ablaze.
For I am the Lord your God,
the Holy One of Israel, your Savior;

PRAYER: Father, I pray for anyone reading this whose asking “Is life worth living?” I am praying every person that on the verge of giving up or have even already given up. I am praying that person that has lost hope. God I pray in the name of Jesus that you become their Hope. I pray that you become their will to live again. I pray that you revive and restore every broken area of their lives that need your LIFE. Snatch them from the pit of pain, sorrow, depression, anger, frustration, anguish,hopelessness. Deliver them into Your LOVE and saturate them with your PEACE, JOY AND GLADNESS. Overwhelm them with your unfailing love. Remind them of your promises to them. Bring back LIFE in their hearts – in Jesus name , Amen.

Stay encouraged. Continue mediating on God’s WORD. Speak LIFE and PRAY always!

Keep the Faith and Let Your Light Shine!
