Doubtlessly

                                                      … unique!

 
Mankind’s uniqueness is not just about having special abilities,
… but, even though those abilities are latent,
mankind also has the special ability
… to release and activate them in his life.

      Being endowed with special abilities
      … means mankind has the potential to achieve much.
      However, a potential simply remains a potential, until it is used.
      This means that man himself has to decide to get involved.

At the centre of man’s uniqueness is his freewill,
and therefore man himself has to consciously choose
to get involved and to use his abilities,
… to be able to achieve what he is capable of.

      History shows us what man is capable of,
      and how man has successfully used his abilities
      … to sustain himself,
      … to protect himself,
      whilst at the same time,
      … subduing, influencing and impacting his surroundings,
      … and greatly developing his environment
      in a way that no other creature on earth is capable of doing.

Doubtlessly unique.
So stop limiting yourself
… by doubting that you are special,
… by doubting the abilities that you have,
those special abilities that God has blessed you with.
And remember …

      You can do all things through Christ who strengthens you.
      (Philippians 4:13)

An Inquiring mind

                                … not just an inquisitive being!

 
Mankind is not just inquisitive, as for instance,
      ‘what does this button do?’
Mankind studies things not just to find out what they are,
… but what they can do and what they can be used for.
In other words,
looking for the value of, and value in, all of creation.

This uniqueness is at the centre of mankind’s existence,
… and is recorded in mankind’s first interaction with God,
in which He laid the foundation for mankind’s existence.
      Be fruitful and multiply; fill the earth and subdue it;
      Gen. 1:28

Then God elaborated on that statement by saying,
      … the gold of that land is good. Bdellium and the onyx stone are there
… of every tree of the garden you may freely eat;
      Gen. 2:8-17

Why, what and wherefore?

Mankind was endowed with special abilities,
… abilities that man was to use to harness the resources of the earth,
and use his abilities and the available resources, to
think, visualize, plan and develop beyond his physical limitations
and achieve what no other known living creature is capable of.
      Be fruitful and multiply; fill the earth and subdue it;
      Gen. 1:28

Stop looking at what God or someone else can do for you,
… but recognise and use the potential and abilities that God has given you,
Consciously decide to uncover and activate your abilities,
… then rely on Him to help you fulfil all that He has purposed for you.

      However, when He, the Spirit of truth, has come,
      He will guide you into all truth; for He will not speak on His own authority,
      but whatever He hears He will speak; and He will tell you things to come.
      John 16:13

Man is different

                                               … special!
life

God created everything we can see around us,
… He even created all that we cannot see, as yet!
That God made mankind different to all other creatures,
… seems to be an issue with some who argue to the contrary.

      Many argue that animals are similar to mankind,
      … because there seems to be certain similarities.
      That argument does not have real validity,
      … as only one side is presenting its case,
      with no reciprocal evidence forthcoming.

If Mankind and other living creatures are indeed equal,
… then comparative proof must also be submitted by those creatures!

      In other words,
      it is not about what mankind is able to argue or prove,
      … but it is also about what other living forms can prove.
      Unless a monkey can submit evidence of it being equal to man,
      … mankind merely continues to prove their own superiority.

Mankind is different, because God chose to make man different,
… in His image and likeness (Gen. 1:26)
and a sure proof of mankind’s ingenuity,
is what made it possible for you to read this blog.

      Stop trying to prove you don’t need God,
      rather let Him help you be the super being that you are!

What are you up to?

                             … and who are you with?
life

History will not remember you for your intelligence,
… it will remember you for what you did.
Thomas Edison once said,
‘Genius is 1 percent inspiration, 99 percent perspiration.’

      It is often said that some are more intelligent or gifted than others,
      … which actually is not at all correct,
      … as we are all gifted,
      and although we may all have different gifts,
      … that is what makes us special and unique!

We are not copies, but uniquely special,
and as history has proven,
if we stand together most everything is possible.
So much so that God even had to confuse man,
… to stop man from destroying himself.

      And the Lord said, ‘Indeed the people are one and they
      all have one language, and this is what they begin to do;
      now nothing that they propose to do will be withheld from them‘.
      Genesis 11:6

However, God through Jesus restored that to us, saying

      Again I say to you that if two of you agree on earth concerning anything
      that they ask, it will be done for them by My Father in heaven.
      Matthew 18:19

But then for our safety, added

      For where two or three are gathered together in My name,
      I am there in the midst of them.
      Matthew 18:20

With Him all things are possible …
With whom are you and what are you up to?
 

Picture Time…

                     Don’t let a picture … control you!
life

We are unique beings, and although we speak in words,
we think, perceive and understand in pictures.
That is why we need a vision, something we can see,
… a picture that we can visualize ourselves in.

      Where there is no vision, the people perish:
      Prov 29:18 (KJV)

But what about those negative pictures,
… where you are suddenly alone, vulnerable and under pressure?

      Stop!
      … wind that video back … it is (still) only a picture!
      Don’t let that picture envelope you, draw you in.
      Don’t let the circumstances around you influence you,
      … shape your thinking and dominate your decision.

Rather,
      let God help you evaluate the picture,
      … let Him guide you through the picture,
      … let Him place you or remove you from the picture,
      and let Him show you His will for you in that picture,
      … in that circumstance, in that decision!

      If you abide in Me, and My words abide in you,
      you will ask what you desire, and it shall be done for you.
      John 15:7

Let God photoshop (edit) your picture, upgrade it and enhance it,
… and let Him walk you through, place you in it, or take you out,
then press print!

 

Man’s impact on earth


 
      Have you ever stopped and looked around at what you see,
      … at the impact that man has had on what you see?
      Because if you do you will notice that,
      … man is responsible for most all that you see!

The constant change in life and thus the change in human existence,
… is progressive, developing and constantly improving!
Whilst nature and animal life is not!

Have a closer look and you will notice that,

      The change in human life and existence is not only evolving,
      … but is constantly and exponentially developing and growing.

      Whilst the change in organic as well as in animal life and existence,
      … has been purely adaptive (and not at all progressive).

      Man is constantly contributing to and impacting his environment,
      … maybe sometimes negatively, but mainly positively.

      Whilst the rest of the living creatures have only drawn from,
      … or adapted to changes in their environment,
      changes they did not initiate, but in fact had to respond to, to survive!

      The progressive change in human life,
      … and in particular in human development,
      is the result of purposeful development by man,
      … and distinctly differs from any adaption in other creatures,

Man is different, and you are different to all else on earth,
make your difference count,
by seeing how you can positively impact life where you are!

How unique is man?


 
That man is different from all other creatures, is obvious,
… but is man unique,
and if so, what about man is unique?

      Man is one of the weaker beings on this planet,
      … yet seems to control it all (although it may not always look like it)

      Man is probably the only creature on earth,
      … needing additional protection from his environment,

      Man has to actively contend with his natural habitat to survive,
      … needing external protection from the cold, the heat, the wet,
      and from most everything in his ‘natural’ environment!

      Man is probably the only being that prepares, plants & builds things,
      … food to eat, a place to stay, a means of protection etc.

      Man not only lives from, but also influences his environment,
      … and creates a micro (& macro) environment for that purpose.

      Man is the only being that develops the resources of this earth,
      … mining – minerals, precious stones, iron, timber and fossil fuels
      then using those resources to generate power and make things, etc.

      Man is also the only being that consciously brings about change,
      … who produces and develops things beyond his physical needs,
      and specifically does it with an ulterior motive beyond his own existence!

Man is different, uniquely different,
… and it is that uniqueness that makes man who he is,
an ability put in man by his Creator,
an unique ability without bounds, through his Creator!

It’s in you!

Have you ever looked at all that is around you,
and wondered where it all comes from?
How that man fit into all of this?

Obviously there is something different about man,
for it is man who is responsible for what is happening.
The question therefore arises,
… how and why?

      If man is responsible for what is happening,
      … for all of the technological development,
      … such as the Digital Revolution we are in,
      where or what is man’s inspiration or source?

Although many theories have been postulated,
… none so far have actually been proven,
mainly because the answer is not outside of man,
but the answer is inside man!

      Then God said, “Let Us make man in Our image, according to
      Our likeness; let them have dominion … over all the earth
      and over every creeping thing that creeps on the earth.”
      Gen 1:26

However, is that really so?

      Just look around,
      … for the evidence thereof is clearly visible!
      Man, through his actions has shown that,
      … not only does he have all the technological know-how in him,
      but he also has the ability to develop and use that know-how!

      Man is different, man is unique,
      … because of what is in him!

A freewill …

What is the driving force behind man’s gifts and abilities?
What is it that causes man to be,
      Inquisitive,
      perceptive,
      conceptual,
      rational,
      functional,
      and a creative visionary?
Man’s freewill.

What is this freewill that man has?
Freewill is that one ingredient in man’s character
… which distinguishes man from all other living creatures on earth.

With the exception of man, all the other living creatures
… primarily live and respond according to instinct,
… they instinctively gather food, and eat what is available!
… they instinctively protect themselves and their offspring
and instinctively live and move in the environment they grew up in!
They do not take responsibility for themselves or their environment,
… but simply act and live according to their natural instincts!

      Man on the other hand always considers his surroundings,
      … he weighs up the options available to him and makes choices!
      He makes the choice to take responsibility or to ignore responsibility.
      Why does man do this?
      Because man has a freewill.

Not only is man able to decide, but he has to decide.
In essence man does not operate by instinct, but by what he knows.
He thinks because he has to make a decision about his next step,
… he has to choose, he has to use his freewill to survive and to live!

      Like all other living creatures, man has to eat to live,
      … but in his eating he decides what he likes,
      not only to meet his physical need,
      … but to satisfy his desires, and his fantasies!
      Man therefore is always having to make decisions,
      … having to use his freewill!

In essence therefore one can say man’s freewill,
not only makes him live the way he wants,
… but makes him responsible for his own life!
Free to choose!
