You are here for such a time as this. You are called to offer what God has placed within you to our world right here, right now. No one else will live the exact amount of time you will, in the place you will, with the people who God will have cross your path.
It’s tempting to say, “Oh, I’m not really needed.” But “We are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do” (Eph. 2:10). In other words, there are things in this world that only you can do.
For such a time as this… You’re changing diapers, tying the shoelaces of the future, growing the seeds of strong faith.
For such a time as this… You’re working in that office, speaking up in that meeting, doing what you do with excellence.
For such a time as this… You’re reaching out a helping hand, taking time to listen, brightening someone’s day.
For such a time as this… You are wherever you are, doing whatever you do, and it matters more than you know.
So keep it up.
You really are making a difference.
Pray with me:
God, You are Lord of the past, present, and future. You hold all of history and what will yet be in Your hands. You have placed us right here, right now, for such a time as this. Our lives are not accidents but divinely created appointments. Give us the courage to serve You faithfully in this generation and leave a legacy that will last for many more to come. Amen.
