I Am Not A Box…That’s Why You Can’t Carry Me

People are always looking for a way to define who you are.  They want to categorize your personality, your looks and even your vision so they can make sense of who you are.  However, you are not ordinary, average or of this world.  You are quite the contrary–you are peculiar and extraordinary, and what you carry simply cannot be defined.

You are not a box.  What God has placed inside of you cannot be contained.

God has blessed you richly and everyone can’t handle what you carry.  Like dynamite, you are powerful beyond measure and not everyone can handle that.   Be mindful of this as you pursue your dreams and enter into relationships and friendships.  Don’t go out of your way to fit into groups that are not designed to carry what you possess.  Don’t go out of your way to make a relationship work with a person who is not equipped to protect your cargo (Proverbs 4:23).

Understand that you were uniquely designed and live freely in God’s favor and grace.

Get out the box of others’ expectations, opinions and ideas about you, and live the life that God has planned and designed for you.

Be Bold.  Be Courageous.  Be Confident.  Be You.

Scripture: But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should shew forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvellous light...(1 Peter 2:9)

Prayer: Dear Father, help us to understand the weight and value of what we carry on the inside so that we can live life to the fullest on the outside. In the name of Jesus, Amen.

    You couldn’t have said it better, all we need to thrive is and has been built within us. We just need trust that we were made for great and powerful things to help the kingdom of God. Whatever path lays before us God has already predestined victory not only for us to shine but also bloom. 2 Corinthians 13:3 “since you are demanding proof that Christ is speaking through me. He is not weak in dealing with you, but is powerful among you. 4 For to be sure, he was crucified in weakness, yet he lives by God’s power. Likewise, we are weak in him, yet by God’s power we will live with him in our dealing with you.” Thanks for helping us unleash ourselves from the box!!!
