Your vision may be to stand alongside the number one man or leading lady. Don’t let anyone devalue you because you are not leading the pack. A well served man or woman is renewed and strengthened by your service. You are as important as the number one fellow.
Be faithful and God will preserve you (Ps 31v23). He cannot forget or overlook your labour of love. Every part of your body is important.
Imagine your head being alone without any other part. That means your head will do the thinking, walking, digestion, defecating,… (I can’t imagine it that’s why I’m asking you to do that- on a lighter mood)
After all, who is Apollos? Who is Paul? We are only God’s servants through whom you believed the Good News. Each of us did the work the Lord gave us. I planted the seed in your hearts, and Apollos watered it, but it was God who made it grow. It’s not important who does the planting, or who does the watering. What’s important is that God makes the seed grow. The one who plants and the one who waters work together with the same purpose. And both will be rewarded for their own hard work. 1Cor 3v5-8
God assigns to each person specific assignments. Face your duties. Carry them out diligently. Don’t devalue yourself. Don’t let anyone look down on you. The way to go about that is by making sure you understand clearly your assignment. If you do, you will be able to face anyone boldly and tell them “Don’t try to misdirect or confuse me. I know where I am headed and I know the means by which I must get there!” If you don’t know or you are not sure, ask your maker (God). He is the master-planner.
You are important in God’s eyes (to Him) irrespective of the assignment you are given- leading or following.
