Never Do Things Others Can Do and Will Do: Embrace Your Unique Calling

Have you ever found yourself caught up in the hustle and bustle of life, trying to keep up with everyone else, only to feel unfulfilled and exhausted? Imagine you’re preparing for a marathon and you keep looking over your shoulder at other runners, trying to match their pace instead of finding your own. This analogy reflects an important life principle: "Never do things others can do and will do." It’s a call to focus on what uniquely resonates with us, leveraging our God-given talents and purposes.

You Are Uniquely Crafted

In Jeremiah 1:5, God tells Jeremiah, "Before I formed you in the womb, I knew you, before you were born, I set you apart." This verse beautifully underscores that each of us is uniquely crafted with a special purpose in mind. We are not meant to be copies of others; we each have a unique calling that only we can fulfill.

Yet, how often do we find ourselves performing tasks and roles that others can easily do, simply because it’s expected or because everyone else is doing it? We need to break this cycle to live authentically and purposefully.

Focus on Your Divine Assignment

Ephesians 2:10 reminds us, "For we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do." Reflect on this when you’re tempted to pick up tasks that others can handle. Think of the good works specifically prepared for you—those that align with your skills, passions, and divine purpose.

Here are a few steps to help you focus on your divine assignment:

  • Identify Your Strengths: Make a list of activities that make you feel alive and energized. These often point to your God-given talents.

  • Prioritize Your Tasks: Evaluate your current tasks and sort them into two categories: those uniquely suited to your strengths and those that others can handle.

  • Delegate More: Trust others to handle tasks that don’t require your unique touch. This allows you to devote more energy to what truly matters.

Reflection: Are You Fulfilling Your God-Given Role?

Take a moment to reflect on your daily routines and responsibilities. Are you investing your time in activities that leverage your unique gifts? Consider the following questions:

  • What tasks in my life do I perform out of obligation, even though others can handle them?

  • How can I better align my daily activities with my strengths and passions?

  • Am I willing to let go and delegate tasks to others to focus more on my divine assignment?

Ask God to reveal more about your unique calling. Pray for the courage and wisdom to let go of tasks that are not meant for you, so you can embrace your divine purpose fully.

Embrace Your Unique Role

Remember that you’re created for a unique purpose. When you embrace your unique role, you not only feel more fulfilled, but you also allow others to step into their roles more fully. In doing so, the body of Christ functions more effectively as each part does its work (Ephesians 4:16).
