When God created you, He placed seeds of greatness in you. Part of the reason that many of us don’t realize that we carry seeds of greatness is because so many negative things happen to us. However, God’s plans and purposes (seeds of greatness) require the right action to germinate them into action.
With that said, sometimes when you feel like you are in a dark place you think you have been buried, but actually you have been planted!
I Peter 2:9 reminds us that, “We are a chosen race, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people for His own possession, that we may proclaim the excellencies of Him who called us out of darkness into His marvelous light.”
Still don’t believe God planted seeds of greatness in you?!
Jeremiah 1:5 says, “Before I formed you in the womb I
knew you, before you were born I set you apart; I appointed you as a prophet to the nations.”
God placed seeds of greatness in Jeremiah even before he was born and God knew the potential in Jeremiah to become the man God created him to be.
The words God spoke to Jeremiah germinated and brought the seeds of greatness in Jeremiah to life and into action.
Think about it…. if God did this for Jeremiah; He will also do the same for you and me! What is so amazing about the seeds of greatness in us is that they are not dependent on our past, on genealogy nor on other people’s opinion of us, but they are solely based on God’s plans and purpose for us, individually.
With God by our side, all things are possible (Matthew 19:26). Nothing is impossible with God and God is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think according to the power that works in us (Ephesians 3:20).
Bottom line, God has destined us for greatness. We were born to stand out not to fit in; in our gifting, in our purpose, and in our destiny!
