We were all made to be unique in GOD’S handiwork design. Therefore, all of GOD’S children have work to do in HIS VINEYARD. There is no need for copycats. Think for a moment – – How has OUR HEAVENLY FATHER purposed you to witness for HIM and to bring HIM GLORY?
Let’s take a look at some examples by reading through the HOLY BIBLE:
Abraham – GOD changed his name from Abram to Abraham and called by GOD to leave his country and to journey by faith and being obedient, he is known as the ‘father of Faith’ and a ‘friend of GOD’. (Read Galatians 3:6-9 and Hebrews 11:8-19)
Joseph – He suffered at the hands of his brothers and went from the pit to the prison to the palace and he did not yield to temptation of Potiphar’s wife. (Read Genesis 39:1-23 to Genesis 50:1-26)
Samuel – He was a good prophet who followed GOD’S COMMANDS who also anointed David to be king over Israel after King Saul‘s disobedience and even had influence after his death. (Read 1 Samuel 28:3-19)
Elisha – Elisha was selected to succeed the great prophet, Elijah and Elisha did many powerful works through receiving a”double portion” of Elijah’s spirit. (Read 2 Kings 2:9 – 2 Kings 9:1-37)
Daniel – He had integrity and did not worship idol gods and did not defile himself with the king’s meat & drink and GOD gave him “knowledge and skill in learning and wisdom: and had understanding in all visions and dreams.” (Daniel 1:17)
Shadrach, Meshach, Abed-nego – Three friends associated with Daniel that had integrity also and “GOD gave them knowledge and skill in all learning and wisdom:” (Daniel 1:17) They also did not worship idol gods and knew they would be delivered from King Nebuchadnezzar‘s orders by THE ALMIGHTY GOD and knew that GOD was able to deliver them even if HE did not rescue them.
