Are You Famous?
Unless you are the next Michael Jordan, Paula Dean, or the funniest guy on Vine, the answer to this question is, “No.”
You and I are never going to live up to the world’s standard of fame.
But what about God’s standard of fame?
God told Abraham in Genesis 12:2 that He would make his name famous throughout all the land with abundant increase of favors, making his name distinguished so that he can be a blessing and dispense good to others. I think it’s fair to say that Abraham is one of the most famous men in the Bible.
There is a godly form to fame that doesn’t require a good voice, amazing basketball skills, or the ability to be funny in front of a camera.
It’s you, just the way you are.
God wants to anoint you to fulfill your calling in life on a level that the church and the world are unfamiliar with to bring glory to His name.
If God has called you to sales, do you think it brings Him glory if you’re barely meeting your monthly quota?
You should be the top sales person and blow all the others out of the water every month!
So you can give God all the glory when you’re asked to give a speech in front of the company’s executives and other sales staff after receiving the top sales-for-the-year award. And this should happen every year.
Second Chronicles 16:9 says, “For the eyes of the Lord run to and fro throughout the whole earth, looking to show Himself strong….”
God is constantly looking for someone to show off for Him. He wants to glorify Himself through you so you can be a witness and ultimately increase His kingdom.
