“You’ll never get there…” “You aren’t the right fit.” “You will never be good enough.” “You will never make it.” “You won’t get very far.” “You aren’t smart enough.” “You aren’t pretty enough.” “You aren’t quick enough.” “You just aren’t qualified.”
Has anyone ever made these comments to you? Well, you aren’t alone. We have all been told something like this one time or another in our lives. If you haven’t, don’t worry, your time will come. Personally, I think all of the above comments are ridiculous! Who are they to tell you, “You’ll never be good enough.”?! God made us ALL in HIS image. He is perfect, and He made everything in this entire world. Here’s what Genesis 1:27-31 tells us:
“So God created man in his own image, in the image of God he created him; male and female he created them. And God blessed them. And God said to them, “Be fruitful and multiply and fill the earth and subdue it, and have dominion over the fish of the sea and over the birds of the heavens and over every living thing that moves on the earth.” And God said, “Behold, I have given you every plant yielding seed that is on the face of all the earth, and every tree with seed in its fruit. You shall have them for food. And to every beast of the earth and to every bird of the heavens and to everything that creeps on the earth, everything that has the breath of life, I have given every green plant for food.” And it was so. And God saw everything that he had made, and behold, it was very good…”
It was very good. See there? God made you, and in His eyes, you are so much more than what you realize. Sadly, people who are telling you these things are lost. They clearly don’t have the love of Christ in them.
Let me begin by saying, you will get there. You are the perfect fit. Never for a second think that you aren’t. The world is like a puzzle, and without you in it, there would be a missing piece, the picture would never be complete.
You are good enough, and to God, you are exceptional. You will make it, and you will soar. You will go further than you ever imagined or even thought possible. You are smart enough, far more smart than you give yourself credit for.
You aren’t, just pretty. No. You are beautiful! You are quick enough, however, take your time. Smell the roses and enjoy the moment! I mean seriously…when did life become a race?
Finally, you are qualified, because God made you to be. He has given you a specific role and purpose, that only you can fulfill. If you aren’t sure what that is yet, ask Him in prayer. He will lead you to it.
Never let anyone put a label on you. You aren’t an item waiting to be shelved at the grocery store. Rip off that label, and throw it into the fire! Quit allowing people to belittle you, and stop letting them tell you what you are and what you aren’t! They don’t know you. They are just road blocks on your map to success! Know your worth, find your purpose and fulfill it! God will be there to guide you along the way.
