God created you uniquely because He has a very specific purpose for your life – a specific and unique “contribution” that only you can make for the kingdom of God. The Bible says, “Each person is given something to do that shows who God is: Everyone gets in on it, everyone benefits.” 1 Corinthians 12:7 MSG
God has made each one of us with a unique SHAPE! Your SHAPE is defined by your Spiritual Gifts, Heart, Abilities, Personality, and Experiences. Find out how God uniquely designed you and has wired you for ministry.
God has given you a custom combination of capabilities called your S.H.A.P.E. Whatever He has called you to do, He has equipped you with what you need to accomplish it.
How is SHAPE defined?
S – Spiritual Gifts. That’s the first thing you look at
H – Heart. What is your heart? Its what you love to do. It’s your basic motivational pattern. What motivates you? What gets you excited? That’s your heart.
A – Abilities. What are the vocational skills that you’ve learned and what are the natural talents that God has given you?
P – Personality. We all have unique personalites and temperaments and God doesn’t waste personality. He’s given you a unique personality and that is one of teh five factors you want to look at in determining what God wants you to do with your life. We’re not just talking about ministry, we’re talking about knowing God’s will. By looking at what God made you to be, you understand what God has made you to do.
E – Experiences. God has given you educational experiences, spiritual experiences, painful experiences. These are all things that God has used in our lives that teach us and mold us and shape us into the vessel He intends for us to be.
