In reflecting upon the process of determining who you are really, there are many dots on the page of what is. If you take the time to connect these dots it will help you see a more clear picture of yourself.
There are many different personality tests, temperament tests, spiritual gift tests, emotional IQ tests and the list can go on that may provide insight and help in aligning the dots to create your unique picture. It takes some degree of initiative and effort on your part to bring the picture into being. A collection of dots by themselves will not do it.
Why would you want to go through the process of dot connection? Well, it just might help you understand there is a Designer and Creator who has a plan and a purpose for you and your life. Connecting the dots may also help you realize the Creator has provided exactly what you need to accomplish your purpose.
Even what seems like decisions which you made and labelled as “screw ups” are not necessarily what you have called them to be, if you are willing to learn and benefit from them.
Moses was born into a Jewish family at a time when being a Jewish baby boy meant certain death. God spared his life and he was raised in the Egyptian Pharaoh’s household. He was given the best of educational training and viewed himself as someone called to lead the Jewish people out of Egyptian slavery. In an attempt to do what he felt called to do, in defending another Jewish person, he ended up running for his life and tending sheep in the desert for 40 years. In such a situation most people would have given up on their destiny and calling, but God did not give up on Moses. God’s plan was not ruined nor Moses’s destiny destroyed just because Moses believed he had messed up. Moses did in fact fulfil his destiny and the people were set free from slavery. You can read about this journey of a great leader in the second book of the Bible, the Book of Exodus.
What was true for Moses is true for you as well. God is not finished with you, whatever your situation may be, if you will trust and follow His leading. Do you believe it? Will you say YES to a relationship with Him through His Son, Jesus Christ and follow Him?
Joint the dots and discover who you are and what you can do through Him.
