But there is gospel in Jesus’s words, “What is that to you? You follow me.” Do you hear it? It’s a declaration of liberation. Jesus died to make you “free indeed” (John 8:36), and this includes freedom from the tyranny of sinful comparison and coveting another’s calling. O, God if we can only look in the mirror and see ourselves and not another, then we will keep the blame and don’t pass it on to another person. It is you standing in front the mirror and not another person. If you had stayed in your lane then there won’t be anything to blame.
God had you in mind when he created you (Psalm 139:13–16). He knew just what he was doing. You, your body, your mind, and your circumstances, are not an accident. Yes, he’s aware of your deficiencies, and, yes, he’s calling you to grow in grace (2 Peter 3:18). But God does not expect or intend you to be someone else. Nor does he want you to follow someone else’s path. You are not trapped in another body. That is who you are and what God had made. Just find your purpose and everything ill work our smoothly. Not all leaders are born, some are made and others evolved from some origin. He that have eyes to see will see, and ears to hear. One Grand Mistress
said that some see and some saw and it took me some time to understand the rational of those words.
Jesus wants you to be you. The faith that Jesus gives you is sufficient for the path he gives you (Romans 12:3). And the grace he gives you to face your trials will be sufficient for you when the need comes (2 Corinthians 12:9). I stand alone in the valley with Jesus whispering those words to me “Follow me.” I am like Isaiah “Here am I send me”.
You are your truest you, not when you are analyzing yourself or measuring yourself against someone else. You are your truest you when your eyes are fixed on Jesus (Hebrews 12:2), when you are following him in faith, and when you are serving others in love with the grace-gifts God has assigned to you (Romans 12:4–8). So many times we keep looking at what others have and how they are dressed and how we can be like them. You will never fit in their shoes. A brother once told me that my shoes are to big for him to fit in
So, no matter what today holds, be free from saying in your heart, “Lord what about this man?” For Jesus chose you (John 15:16), promised to supply all that you need (Philippians 4:19), and wants you to simply follow him. He never called the other person to be you? He called you because He wants to use you. Because He placed something in you to advance His Kingdom. This time it is about you and only you that Jesus has whispered those king words “Follow me.”
If you humble yourself under his mighty hand, trusting him to redeem all your suffering, “thorns” (2 Corinthians 12:7) and weaknesses, he will exalt you at the time and in the way that will bring him the most glory and you the most joy (1 Peter 5:6). Brethren I sit humble waiting for my moment, my time when I will be elevated and exalted above anything that man can think. My honour is due and in His time I will be declared worthy and with distinction.
Your servant and brother,
