UNIQUELY GIFTED

Scripture Reading: 1 SAMUEL 16: 1-14

Focus

“Then Samuel took the horn of oil, and anointed him in the midst of his brethren: and the Spirit of the LORD came upon David from that day forward. So Samuel rose up, and went to Ramah.” (1 Samuel 16: 13)

In Exodus 40 vs. 9, God told Moses to anoint the tabernacle and everything in it, thus consecrating the tabernacle and its furnishings. Afterwards, Moses mandated all Israel never to make a replica of the tabernacle and its furnishings. The oil came upon the tabernacle and its furnishings, and they became permanently relevant and unique. That same oil came on David, and made him stand out.

Friend, by reason of the oil of God upon your life, you will stand out. You are not replaceable. Men may attempt to copy what you do, but they will not have the same results you have. Men may attempt to replicate your successes, but you will remain uniquely different from them all. Men may attempt to be like you, but the oil of God upon your life will make you so different and so unique that you will still stand out no matter your rivals.

Welcome to that season where the works of your hands will stand out. Welcome to that season where your greatness will be uniquely different from the greatness of other men. Welcome to that season where you will be a major reference point for generations unborn. Welcome to that season where you will be a standard for other men to copy. Welcome to that season where men will struggle to be like you. Welcome to your season of uniqueness.

God has put you in a class of your own, and no man will be able to easily bring forth the unique gifts and results that heaven has bestowed on you. God has planted you in your own space, and no rival will be able to compete effectively with you. God has positioned you in your high places, and no force of hell will be able to bring you down. God has set you on higher levels, and no plan of the enemy will make you ordinary afterwards.

Stay connected to the God who has made you different in your generation. You belong to a unique stock. You belong to that generation that cannot be easily replaced or replicated.

Declaration

I am uniquely different; I can’t be easily replaced or my works replicated, in Jesus’ name!
