Romans 11:29 says
The gifts and callings of God can never be withdrawn.
dwell on that today.
know that what He has given won’t be taken away. people take things back all the time, but not God. so if He has affirmed something in you, if He has gifted you, then move forward in that gift. people recognize and affirm our gifting, they can also deny and try to shut it down for whatever reason. but the gifts of people can be taken back or returned. the calling of man can be removed or disposed of. but not God. if He calls you, He also gifts you. and that is your portion. you have a uniqueness that the world needs. only your DNA can fulfill that calling.
so recognize who you are today. realize that you have specific God-given skills and talents. believe that He has a purpose for you. go and live. don’t let others define who God says you are.
So don’t be misled, my dear brothers and sisters. Whatever is good and perfect comes down to us from God our Father, who created all the lights in the heavens. He never changes or casts a shifting shadow. He chose to give birth to us by giving us his true word. And we, out of all creation, became his prized possession. James 1:16-18 NLT
