New Living Translation (NLT)
3 You can be sure of this:
The Lord set apart the godly for himself.
The Lord will answer when I call to him.
I never seem to fit in I always say. My husband actually had to push me at first to go to women’s group every other Monday night. I disliked new groups. I felt like a not valid part of any group. I often thought, “What difference will what I say make in any ones life?” Then of course God reminds me that we heal others and share Jesus with our testimonies. Then my mind starts telling me my testimony is not that great and who would want to hear me rambling on. All pure lies from the enemy.
Every time I have shared my past life, someone takes notice. Not of me, but of Jesus. Even I sometimes ponder on what amazing things God did in my life over the last 43 years. Sometimes my own testimony helps me get over something I am dealing with today so why wouldn’t my story help others?
Often times in life, God sets us apart for season. Perhaps He wants us all to Himself so that He can pour into us. Other times He many want to separate us from a disaster we have gotten ourselves into. Or maybe He just needs our full attention so that we can get back on track with our destiny. No matter the reason, there is a reason for being set apart.
How can we tell the difference from being alone or separated? Simple. It all comes to choosing. If you are choosing to follow after God and are listening and obeying to what He directs then you are choosing to allow Him to set you apart. If you are choosing to be a part of a group instead of being alone then here again it is your choice. Perhaps it is time to begin to step out in faith and BE a part of a group. Begin to share your story. Start to believe in you as the person God has created you to be.
