“You are the light of [Christ to] the world. A city set on a hill cannot be hidden. - Matthew 5:14
There are many times in life that we find ourselves doubting who we were created to be and our abilities to succeed in this world. We often believe that it is easier for the next person to become someone important in life and/or on your job because of who they know. However, if we truly understood who we are and what is within us I'm positive we would never play the comparison game.
In the above scripture, it talks about who we are as a child of God. It describes us as “the light of the world and a city set on a hill that cannot be hidden.” If we truly believed this truth given to us by God, then we would know that no matter how much inexperience we have in a workplace or how much knowledge of the Bible we may lack, we are STILL an illuminating light in this world! We hold within us a light that cannot be dimmed because God controls the wattage, and he places us on the highest setting. Which means, no matter how much darkness a situation or person may try to bring your way, you will always shine and your light will eliminate the enemies schemes over your life.
It also means that you are a city that has been placed on the TOP (not middle or bottom) of a hill. God has called you for greatness and to be at the top of the totem pole wherever you are (in your career or your life.) You do not have to worry about trying to impress or suck up to anyone because God’s light will cause you to stand out. Regardless of how it appears, the Holy Spirit is always in control!
So the next time you begin to doubt who you are or who God called you to be, remember who controls the wattage on your light. You have been placed as the city of God....now move forward in confidence!
