Let me share with you a couple of examples. Somehow, somewhere, there is a flower on the top of a mountain that no one has ever seen. It lives and dies there without any human observation. Why is it there? Maybe it's because God loves to create. He loves to create things of beauty. He loves to create things of intricacy. He loves to create for Himself. He enjoys that flower.
Another example are deep sea fish. They live below the photic zone of the ocean. That means that they get very little light. These fish have been living there a long time, yet they have an absolute wonder and beauty to them. When light is shined on them, they become iridescent. They are dramatically colorful. However, it was not until we developed the ability to dive into the Marianas Trench that we discovered them. Yet, they have been there all this time. Why are they there? Maybe it's because God loves to create. He loves to create things of beauty. He loves to create things of intricacy. He loves to create for Himself. He enjoys those fish.
So, while reading this, you may feel lonely. You may feel insignificant. What difference have I made in the world? Does anybody even know that I exist? Does anybody even care that I exist?
Yet these two examples of the flower and the fish show us that God made you for Him. He didn't make you like you are so that you can impress people. He didn't make you like you are so that you can become famous and receive notice from people. Nope. God made you to shine for Him. It doesn't matter if anybody notices. He made you because He loves to create. He loves you. He made you intricate. You are absolutely beautiful to Him. He enjoys you.
You can be assured that when God made you, He knew what He was doing. When you stand before God in eternity, it is only His opinion that will matter. So, why are you waiting around on the mountain top or in the deepest ocean waiting for somebody to see you before you shine?
Shine for Him!
BE A MAN.
