“The boy appeared to be dead. A murmur ran through the crowd as people said, “He’s dead” But Jesus took him by the hand and helped him to his feet and he stood up” Mark 9:26b-27
In what type of a situation do you find yourself in today? Do you maybe find yourself in a situation where those around you are telling you that all is finished with you? Are the people around you already judging you dead concerning whatever mess you find yourself in?
Have you been ridiculed and dragged down by people’s words that you will never amount to anything in life? Do not be dismayed my friend, you do not have to get people’s approval to start believing in yourself.
You may appear to be dead right now from the outside, that people can see, but they are missing the only place that counts; your inside, you are more alive on the inside than you or anyone could imagine.
When God breathed Life into you He didn’t breathe a Spirit of failure. The one who breathed life into you is omnipotent, He is extraordinary and from Him only the extraordinary are produced.
When God created you He gave you a command that would shape your whole existence. He said “Fill the earth and govern it” Genesis 1:28b. He didn’t command this the other way round. In you God created someone who would govern, that means He gave you the potential to be great.
You need to start seeing yourself through God’s eyes and not through human eyes. The reason that today you feel so worthless is because you might be “seeing merely from a human point of view,[and] not from God’s [view]” Mark 8:33b.
Yes seeing yourself survive that situation you are in and becoming what you are meant to be “Humanly speaking, it is impossible. But not with God. Everything is possible with God.” [Mark 10:27]
Today you might be in a wall of murmur from those around you or even you helping the murmuring along, but you do not have to go on like that! Reach out your hand and let Jesus take you by the hand and help you on your feet so that you can stand up to life again.
God said “I knew you before I formed you in your mother’s womb. Before you were born I set you apart" [Jeremiah 1:5] “For I know the plans I have for you…they are plans for good and not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope” [Jeremiah 29:11]
Your whole life it’s a plan from God and nothing that He plans can leave the earth without fulfilling that which He has set it apart to complete.
No matter how dead people say you are, you are alive more than you or they can imagine you were “Set apart” by God for a purpose and “He will never leave you nor forsake you” until you have achieved that which you were “Set apart” to achieve; which is only greatness; from God only extraordinary things are produced!
