Everyday Genie in a Bible
Do you think about what God sees in you or what others see? It’s often a process to care more about what God sees in you rather than care what others think or see. When our identity and strength come from Him then we have the mindset to ask God, “Where should I go, who should I meet, and “How can I serve?” But how often do we find ourselves making wonderful plans and then asking God, “Bless what I’ve decided is good.” God is not a Genie in a Bible. It’s not about saying the correct verses and trying to perfect behavior. it’s about trusting God’s goodness, promises and faithfulness and when life doesn’t look or feel good.
God doesn’t need me to be heard on the radio, write books or be a speaker. He loves us for who we are and not for what we do. He gives us purpose with the gifts He’s given us simply because He’s good and He loves us…everyday.
