Have you ever felt like you are not enough, inadequate maybe? Much of the world struggles with this same feeling. Many people feel a lack of purpose. Many do not feel like they are doing what they are meant to do. Perhaps these feelings of inadequacy are due to our sinful nature. Romans 3:32 says, "all have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God." According to scripture none of us are living up to our potential.
However, that doesn't mean that we can't get there. God said, "seek and you will find" Jeremiah 29:13. Jesus also said, "Take my yoke upon you and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light." in Matthew 11:29-30.
Remember Genesis 1:27 says that we were created in God's image. This essentially means that our purpose is to be Holy. To be loving. Our PURPOSE, the thing that will give us feelings of fulfillment, is to be in the image of God, to be like Him. Ecclesiastes 3:11 says, "He has also set eternity in the human heart;" NIV. Our desire, our longing to feel what is missing, can only be solved by Jesus recreating in us the heart that we are supposed to have. Psalm 51:10 David asked God to give him a clean heart. 2 Corinthians 5:17, says, "Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new."
God wants to recreate in you the image of the perfect and loving God of the universe. He wants to Baptize you with His Holy Spirit and make you Holy. He wants to make you the way you were meant to be.
Read: John 3
What is Jesus telling Nicodemus? Today will you ask God to make you Holy, to cover you with His Holy Spirit. To wash you in the Blood of Jesus so that He can make you live out your PURPOSE.
Prayer: Great God, you are Holy, we are not, please Lord create in us a heart like yours. Make us Holy so we can be who you ment us to be. Accept us even though we are broken, and make us who you want us to be.
