You’re Anointing
Often times it’s the sheer fact that you’re special that causes you to struggle. Earlier on if you’ve never truly fit in, you’ll notice that this causes you to wonder of your importance, and meaning. The reality of this is that you’re actually set apart. And in being set apart, you’re reserved as special. The reason that you don’t fit in is primarily because you’re not designed to. When looking at any role model or successful pioneer or biblical hero… None ever fit in with their peers and sometimes their loved ones. As a matter of fact, Jesus didn’t even fit in with his own family, let alone the city in which he was raised.

He left there and returned to his hometown. His disciples came along. On the Sabbath, he gave a lecture in the meeting place. He made a real hit, impressing everyone. “We had no idea he was this good!” they said. “How did he get so wise all of a sudden, get such ability?”

But in the next breath they were cutting him down: “He’s just a carpenter—Mary’s boy. We’ve known him since he was a kid. We know his brothers, James, Justus, Jude, and Simon, and his sisters. Who does he think he is?” They tripped over what little they knew about him and fell, sprawling. And they never got any further. Jesus told them, “A prophet has little honor in his hometown, among his relatives, on the streets he played in as a child.” Jesus wasn’t able to do much of anything there—he laid hands on a few sick people and healed them, that’s all. He couldn’t get over their stubbornness. He left and made a circuit of the other villages, teaching. (‭Mark‬ ‭6‬:‭1-6‬ MSG)

His brothers said, “Why don’t you leave here and go up to the Feast so your disciples can get a good look at the works you do? No one who intends to be publicly known does everything behind the scenes. If you’re serious about what you are doing, come out in the open and show the world.” His brothers were pushing him like this because they didn’t believe in him either. (‭John‬ ‭7‬:‭3-5‬ MSG)

If you notice, it’s always the outliers who actually change the world. Whether it’s a rapper named Snoop Dogg (Lion); {who’s awkwardly positioned}
snoop and friends

Or Robert Kiyosaki, whom struggled to fit in and struggled throughout school with education

It is said that the fear of public speaking is a fear greater than death for most people. According to psychiatrists, the fear of public speaking is caused by the fear of ostracism, the fear of standing out, the fear of criticism, the fear of ridicule, the fear of being an outcast. THE FEAR OF BEING DIFFERENT PREVENTS MOST PEOPLE FROM SEEKING NEW WAYS TO SOLVE THEIR PROBLEMS.

Purpose like Joseph, who didn’t fit in with his siblings and was eventually abandoned by them, only to later become the savor of each one of them. Similar to not fitting in as royalty as a princess like Moses and yet not accepted by the slaves that you’re born from. Maybe like David, least considered of all your family to be successful and yet you’re chosen and anointed by God to not only become the most successful but to also lead a nation. The greatest king Israel ever knew.

The truth is that your anointing will drive you out. It will push you away from areas in which you claimed were comforting. Only to direct you to a realization that you were a fish never meant to conclude to confinement of a fish bowl. Instead destined to swim with the beast of the sea. To be anointed is to be set apart, the mere fact that you’re set apart is to find out what makes you different. That’s you’re personal journey, realizing what makes you different allows you to develop your advantages. This may allow you to discover knew gifts like David playing the harp to dirty sheep in the meadows. Or like Joseph, being an asset manager for Egyptian Captain of the guard, before becoming the Prime Minister of the Greatest nation of the world. You may not recall but, Joseph actually was a slave to the Egyptian. And as his responsibilities grew so did his management. And he became the manager over all that was in his masters house… He became an asset manager that latter managed all the assets in Egypt… Saving a whole nation. Talk about being perfect on one level, and later being promoted.

It is your uniqueness that destined you for greatness. Your uniqueness is a key factor to your anointing that God put on your life. But it’s not enough that you’re anointed… You have to walk in that anointed and perfect your gift. Enhance your gift by performing it in excellence. After all

The price of Greatness, is the Greatness of the Cost

In other words if you want to be great, it’s going to take great. It will take practice on a level of excellence.
