Day 32 – USING WHAT GOD GAVE YOU — 40 Days Purpose Driven Life Journey by Rick Warren


Do your best to present yourself to God as one approved, a workman who does not need to be ashamed and who correctly handles the word of truth – 2 Timothy 2:15 (NIV)

Since God knows what’s best for you, you should gratefully accept the way he has fashioned you. The Bible says, “What right have you, a human being, to cross-examine God? The pot has no right to say to the potter: ‘Why did you make me this shape?’ Surely a potter can do what he likes with the clay!” (Romans 9:20-21 JB)

Your shape was sovereignly determined by God for his purpose, so you shouldn’t resent it or reject it. Instead of trying to reshape yourself to be like someone else, you should celebrate the shape God has given only to you. “Christ has given each of us special abilities — whatever he wants us to have out of his rich storehouse of gifts: (Ephesians 4:7 LB)
