Winning “Song of the Year” at the 2020 Dove Awards, Kari Jobe and Elevation Music’s “The Blessing” was one of the most impactful songs of the year.
It is easy to look at the influence this song has and question what God is doing in your life today. I want to encourage you to take captive any sort of thoughts like this. There is divine purpose in the life right in front of you today, whether you are receiving a Grammy Award for a top worship song or working a 9-5. As yourself, what kind of impact do I want to have? But don’t stop there. We get stuck on figuring how our lives will transform the earth, instead of focusing on why. The father wants all of the earth to experience His love and presence. Operating in our gifts as sons and daughters gives the opportunity for this to happen. Did you get that? You have the opportunity to bring God’s love to the earth. That is no small calling.
Impact Beyond Kari Jobe
God wants your gifts on display to the rest of the world. Do you have a song inside that is dying to get out? Maybe you have a gift of leadership, of friendship, or connection. Influence is so much more than singing, speaking, or dancing, though those are important. You possess the propensity to change your entire family because of how you love them. This might look like walking in radical, unoffendable forgiveness. Or, it might look like cooking them dinner each night. There is no limit to how God wants to transform the earth through you.
Here is a prayer and journal prompt for your week: God, how can I think more creatively about the ways you desire to change the world through me? Show me the areas in my life I can lead and impact generations to come.
