I Am Unique

Fear Rejection? Remember, You Are Unique
by Rick Warren
“You made all the delicate, inner parts of my body and knit me together in my mother’s womb. Thank you for making me so wonderfully complex! Your workmanship is marvelous—how well I know it”. (Psalms 139:13-14 NLT)


The Bible says you were prescribed before birth. God knew what you would be like. He chose you, and he chose your characteristics. This means you are unique. There is only one you. There is nobody else who could be you. If you don't be you, who is going to be you? You are irreplaceable.
I read recently that there are 25,000 varieties of orchids in the world. If I had been God, I would have made a yellow orchid, a blue orchid, and a red orchid. Not God. The creator loves variety — 25,000 different varieties of orchids.
What's even more amazing is there are 4 billion varieties of people. And God made them all. You're unique. Nobody can be you. David says be grateful: “Thank you for making me so wonderfully complex! Your workmanship is marvelous—how well I know it” (Psalm 139:14 NLT).
Be glad you're you. God didn’t make you by accident. Can you imagine an artist whose paintings all look the same? How about a guy who paints 12 pictures and puts them up in his living room, then the pictures come to life and vote to all become like one. The artist would be disappointed. God doesn't want you to be like anybody else. He wants you to be you.
When you understand this, you will be less likely to fear rejection.
Talk About It
How does comparing yourself to others undermine your purpose in life?
How does comparing yourself to others influence your relationship to God?


I Am Unique

I am unique,
With a unique gifting.
Fitting my assignment

I have a special assignment;
A God -given assignment.
I will discover that assignment,
And progressively fulfil it.

I am unique.
There has never been anyone like me.
There will never be another me.
I shall discover my distinctiveness.
I shall celebrate that distinctiveness.
I shall use my uniqueness to fulfil
My purpose, dreams and vision.
I have everything I need in me,
To do the will of God for my life.

I refuse to copy or be a photo –copy.
I refuse to be shaped into any one’s mould.
I can and will learnt from others;
But I dare to be different and be me.

I am unique.
So God made me;
And I am fearfully
And wonderfully made.
Unique, just unique!
