“But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you; and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.” (Acts 1:8)
When Jesus was speaking to the disciples (in the first chapter of Acts), He was giving them direction for their lives. He was encouraging them, and reminding them that their lives counted for something. Just like this was true for the disciples, it is true for you and me as well.
Your life counts. There is not a single person on this planet who doesn’t need to hear that. Our lives count and we can make a difference. We were created on purpose, for a purpose. Remember, God did not make a mistake when He put you on this earth.
The significance of your life is not based on just one thing. Your entire life counts. It is not dependent on how much you give financially. It is not centered on how you give your time and energy. It is not focused on what you do for other people. It depends upon the impact of your entire life – your words, your actions, and your interactions.
Maybe you struggle to believe this truth at times. We all wrestle with self-doubt at one time or another. We question why we are here and what our purpose is. Please be encouraged; God created you uniquely and positioned you exactly where He wanted you. He placed you here to bring the most glory and honor to Him. You truly can make a difference with the power of the Holy Spirit inside of you, guiding you and encouraging you forward. I pray that you will believe this truth and live in that strength and power from this day forward.
