Even the earthworm has a purpose on planet earth. You are important to God. God created the world out of nothing. He will create something significant out of your life.
My God is able to turn every tragedy into a noteworthy testimony.
The earthworm is regarded as an “engineer” in the ecosystem. The earth will remain unchanged without the involvement and the input of an earthworm.
They are hidden in the heart of the earth. They are not visible to all men. They are very unique to their environment and never compete with other creatures walking on the face of the earth.
Are you aware that, without the contribution of the earthworm, oxygen and water can’t enter and carbon dioxide can’t leave the soil?
There are three things I have personally discovered by observing the contribution of the earthworm in the backyard of my house.
1: It plays a very important role in the decomposition of the soils organic matter by breaking down dead matter or tissue.
2: It carries bacteria into the soil to increase the nutrients that plants receive for their nourishment.
3: It serves as a means of transportation; transporting food to other creatures that live in the heart of the soil.
Now observe this fundamental LIFE CHANGING PRINCIPLE that we can learn from the earthworm.
The earthworm is not really regarded as a major contributor to planet earth by the masses. Likewise, if you think that your life doesn’t contribute much to planet earth and you feel as though you have no purpose in life, let the lifestyle of the earthworm inspire you this morning.
You matter on God’s planet earth because you have a unique gift that only you can contribute to your generation. You are very important to this world. Never allow those who can’t see your potential to limit what you can do.
Everything that God created is very special to the development of this world. Like the earthworm, your hidden potential may not be visible yet to all eyes. You may not be on National Television, in the National Newspapers, on Social media or on big billboards or grace major platforms with celebrities.
I want to encourage you that, you are more than what men think. Your sphere of influence that God has placed you in is waiting for you to effect some positive change just like the earthworm.
In Jeremiah Chapter 1 verse 5, God said to the Prophet Jeremiah-“Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, before you were born I set you apart; I appointed you as a prophet to the nations.”-NIV
Make the decision to remain authentic to what God purposed you to be before you were born just like the Prophet Jeremiah was purposed by God to be a prophet to the nations. Never compare yourself to what others are doing. Discover your purpose and pursue it regardless of where you are in the world.
The earthworm values its purpose and assignment in life by remaining authentic to who God created it to be. We don’t see the earthworm attempting to change to become an elephant or any other creature on God’s planet earth. Likewise, you have no business trying to change who God made you to be just to fit in with your environment. You are so MUCH MORE than the earthworm.
Align yourself daily with God’s value system. Purpose on a daily basis to give yourself the needed sense of direction and focus required to live your life and not the life of another.
Whether you are known by men or not, don’t look at other people, you are the only one
God has assigned for a unique purpose which you alone are graced by God to serve on this earth.
The elephant can’t do what the earthworm does; neither can the earthworm do what the elephant does. Why then do you want to belittle yourself just for the popularity of men?
It is my prayer that you will live a life that expresses who God created you to be and set you apart for, even before you were born.
You have a unique life purpose from God.
Allow it to shape your sphere of influence. Let your decisions, your thoughts, feelings, and actions lead you to fulfill God’s mandate in your life.
Remember that if the earthworm has a purpose, you child of God who is made in the image and likeness of God has much more of a purpose than the earthworm.
Live to pursue your purpose. Step up and keep up. You are destined for greatness.
- Accept and love who you are in life
- Never try to prove a point to anyone that, you are something.
- Don’t allow the perception and how other people think and behave affect how you feel about your life.
- Don’t change for others or compromise based on their approval or disapproval.
- Believe and have undeniable confidence in your ability to make impact in your generation.
- Have the boldness to stay away from toxic relationships
- Never try to force yourself to fit in any relationship. Not every relationship is good for your destiny
- Remember that, love is found within. Don’t let anyone derail your destiny with fake love.
- Remain focus on things you are born to, want to do, and called to do, so that you can commit your time and energy to display and deploy them to bless your generation. You are unique to this world.
