It is amazing, that even though I created man to be unique and individual, so many are desperately trying to be like someone else. I created you special, and put My stamp of approval on you–your fingerprint. No two are alike. Every day more are created, yet none duplicated.
Because I wanted you and no other like you. I purposed you, and none other for your purpose. Through the ages many are called, but no one has the exact same call. No duplicates means, no mistakes.
Twins look the same to the world if they are identical. You may ‘fool’ the world, as they say, but I AM not of this world and I AM not a fool. Man looks on the outward appearance–
I look on the heart.
I see who you are, not what you look like. I AM the author and finisher of your faith and the lover of your soul. I reject no one, for you are irreplaceable–uniquely you! Therefore, My question to you is…
Why in a world teeming with people, do you feel insignificant, when I know right where you are at all times? I never stop thinking about you. My eye is ever upon you. You will never have another fingerprint, and no one will ever have yours.
Why then, would you not want to leave a footprint that is just as unique?
If you want to imitate someone, imitate Me. For I AM never the same to two individuals–I AM unique to you and My footprint I gladly give to you, as I gave you My Life.
Be uniquely you and come, follow Me. Bring along your fingerprint–you’ll need some ID.

Our soul waits for the Lord; he is our help and shield. Yea, our heart is glad in him, because we trust in his holy name. Let thy steadfast love, O Lord, be upon us, even as we hope in thee.” Psalms 33:13-15, 18-22

Beautiful! I feel his love pouring out of your words.. mmmmm …. 🙂
This one is for the quote board: “If you want to imitate someone, imitate Me.”
Yes this is a sweet one, my prayer is that we can all soak this down inside. Even if we aren’t one to imitate another, we often tend to have times of insecurity and struggles over our value. It is so the enemy!! I love it when God reminds us how precious we are.
Thank you for your lovely words!! God Bless You 🙂
