Day 30 – Shaped for serving God


You were shaped to serve God – uniquely designed, or ‘shaped’, to do certain things


You are the way you are because you were made for a specific ministry. You are God’s handcrafted work of art – custom-designed, one-of-a-kind, original masterpiece. He carefully mixed the DNA cocktail that created you. Not only did God shape you before your birth, He planned every day of your life to support His shaping process – nothing that happens in your life is insignificant, all of it is contrived to mold you for your ministry to others and shape you for your service to Him.





God never wastes anything. He gave you abilities, interests, talents, gifts, personality, and life experiences which He intends using, through you, for His glory. (God doesn’t make junk – Ethel Waters) The Bible says you are “wonderfully complex.” You are a combination of many different factors. Whenever God gives you an assignment He always equips you with what you need to accomplish it.




A few of theses factors are:

Spiritual gifts
Heart
Abilities
Personality and
Experience





We will further explore these five chosen factors that God uses to shape us for His service... Love you ~ Stafford
