To fulfill something, it means that an event has occurred to finalize its completion, to finalize a prophesy or a promise. Being fulfilled however, is to fill full or fill up completely. Being self-fulfilled is being complete and satisfied with your own ambitions. On today, we will talk about fulfillment and what it means to be complete in your hopes with being who you are. May the God of hope fill you with all….
Your Own You
There was a blog that I wrote, titled “Your Own You“. That blog was so significant because it highlights the importance of not only being yourself but being empowered in the confidence of who you were created to be. Romans 15:13 highlights the factor that you can be fulfilled with joy and peace. Some try to find their joy in other people or by imitating what other people are doing. In a plea to find self-fulfillment, it is noticeable how you can see that people can make promises, promises that they don’t have the power to make, all in an effort to be seen. “Christians should be imitators of God, so we should make sure we never promise something we cannot fulfill. Since we cannot guarantee our promises, we must let our “Yes” be “Yes” and our “No,” “No.” With God, however, fulfill always means fulfill.” -by Jeremy Ham
There’s a difference in being inspired by someone and then trying to become what that someone is because you feel moved. That’s not your uniqueness. The uniqueness is being inspired by someone and then executing on what is already in you as opposed to executing on what the other person is doing. Trying to be self-fulfilled by someone else’s own ambition can lead you to a miserable and undeserving life. Just be who you are and if you feel that who you are and the potential you have isn’t good enough, you are wrong. “For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them.” Ephesians 2: 10 What are you walking in? Let’s read on about this workmanship.
Product of a workmanship
We are the very product formed with a skill and a purpose by God. This is why it is so important to not want to be like someone else or do what someone else is doing because you will miss the thing in which you were created for. How can you walk in your own calling when you are trying to imitate someone else’s? Do you know the line to draw with being inspired by someone or being an imitator of someone? What we are meant to do in our own defined gift is something that God had already prepared long ago. It didn’t happen overnight, yesterday or last week, it happened, long long ago. Now you can be set free, delivered, and made a new creature overnight, yesterday, or last week but our creation and who we are was done before we were even formed. The potential that each person on this earth has been bestowed is uniquely for each person. There is worth in recognizing your own potential and executing in the frame that God gave you.
Trying to operate in another persons skill because you are not sure what it is you are supposed to be doing is a hard fire to put out. With many attempts of striving to be better or do it better than the next you become miserable and exhausted. The unique plan that God has given you is to ultimately serve out his will and for a purpose that is bigger and greater than you.
You should love you. Yes, I love you with the love of Christ. In fact, that’s all that any of us owe each other is “to love one another: for he that loveth another hath fulfilled the law.” Romans 13: 8 Fullfilling the law to love another is done in action of not committing sins against another. This can be found in Romans the thirteenth chapter. If you don’t fully love your own self, it is so easy to want to love what someone else is doing and trying to have what someone else has. This is coveting and it goes against fulfilling the law. This is why it is so important to be self-fulfilled with the work God has created in you and not trying to fill yourself up with things you are not.
It’s the very reason why some people take on the personality of someone else or try to re-invent someone’s own creativeness or skills because they are walking in an ungodly love and covetousness. Love You, outside of that, the gratification you are looking to achieve becomes unhopeful and meaningless. The pleasure that you desire to get becomes quickly stifled and short pleasing.
God has made you complete. He has already fulfilled you. What is up to you is to surrender your own will, disregarding your imitation of happiness and living in the fulfillment of Joy and Peace that he has already given you.
