God, Why Did You Give Me This Strength?
Article by Daniel Riemenschneider, IPSAT Coach and Administrative Pastor at Bloomingdale Church
The journey of identity self-awareness is an intentional engagement with your Intelligent Designer. God masterfully put Kingdom Resources in you that set you apart because He knew you would need them, along with His power, to do the good works He prepared in advance for you to do.
One way to grow in your understanding of how you are God’s handiwork is to ask Him. Try this:
- Create a quiet space in which you can slow down and think, and in which your soul can listen.
- Pull up the descriptions of your CliftonStrengths (or the “Signature Strengths postcards” you received if you attended the IPSAT Course)
- Ask God: Why did you give me this strength? What do you want me to know?
