This is the last of the “Words from Joe” series. Joe is one of the wises and most humble men I have ever met. I hope I have shared his wisdom with you as much as he shared with me. The 30 minute conversation we had has impacted my ministry more than any single conversation I have ever had. Thank you Joe.
God designed your suit for you and it will only fit you.
Joe said, “God designed your suit for you and it will only fit you. It will never fit anyone else and anyone else that attempts to put on your suit, it will always feel awkward. I would be too tight, too loose, too small or way to big. Your suit is designed to move with you and always be perfect. Our suits may be made out of the same material but one is made for me and one is made for you.”
God has put me in the very spot he wants me. Better yet, when God wants me in a different context or different situation, He will put me there. I only have to obey and wear my suit. Same for you. You have a unique suit that is made just for you, it will fit no one else like it fits you. Know that God has you where He needs you and you only need to obey and wear your suit. Don’t try to wear a suit that belongs to someone else, you know it won’t fit you.
Jeremiah 1:5 (NIV) “Before I formed you in the womb I knew you…”
