An individual that is marked by God is “strikingly noticeable” and “has a visible mark.

When others encounter someone that is marked, there is an immediate understanding that the marked person doesn’t conform to the rhythm of the world. They are unique and march to their own drum beat. Growing up, they often felt a need to be noticed for their individuality, colored outside the lines, and thought about everything in a unique out of the box way.

“Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, before you were born I set you apart; I appointed you as a prophet to the nations.” Jeremiah 1:5

Here are 22 signs that God has chosen you and marked you for a POWERFUL purpose:

1. God Uses Your Uniqueness in Ministry

When a marked person partners with God, together they make a POWERFUL combination. Because they are already so different, it makes it easier for God to use their specific qualities to make them shine even brighter.

God used the uniqueness of the characters in the Bible to minister:

  1. Esther’s unique beauty made her an option to marry the King and save the Jewish nation.
  2. David’s short stature and young age made him a perfect option to show God’s strength in defeating Goliath.
  3. Ruth’s loyalty to stay with her mother in law led her to a new land and she was able to meet her Boaz.
  4. Paul’s passion for God was expressed in killing Christians, but God encountered this fiery man and redeemed his unique gift to spread Christianity.
  5. Solomon’s wisdom was used to inspire so much of our biblical instructions!

2. You Are An Ambassador

An ambassador of Christ seeks to represent God in everything they do, and say. An ambassador also try to represent God in what they wear and where they go.

You are the type that desires to be a walking advertisement or role model for the Kingdom. When a marked Christian becomes an ambassador of Christ they beautifully reflect the love, integrity, power, and righteousness of the Kingdom of Heaven.

I have given them your word, and the world has hated them because they are not of the world, just as I am not of the world.  I do not ask that you take them out of the world, but that you keep them from the evil one. John 17:14-15

3. You’re Prophetic

I no longer call you servants, because a servant does not know his master’s business. Instead, I have called you friends, for everything that I learned from my Father I have made known to you.” John 15:15

4. You’re Focused

Your main goal is to please God, not to gain the approval of the people around you. You love and honor others, but you try not to be a people-pleaser because God’s opinion matters the most to you.

So flee youthful passions and pursue righteousness, faith, love, and peace, along with those who call on the Lord from a pure heart. Have nothing to do with foolish, ignorant controversies; you know that they breed quarrels. And the Lord’s servant must not be quarrelsome but kind to everyone, able to teach, patiently enduring evil, correcting his opponents with gentleness. God may perhaps grant them repentance leading to a knowledge of the truth, and they may come to their senses and escape from the snare of the devil, after being captured by him to do his will.” 2 Timothy 2:22-26

He must manage his own household well, with all dignity keeping his children submissive, for if someone does not know how to manage his own household, how will he care for God’s church? He must not be a recent convert, or he may become puffed up with conceit and fall into the condemnation of the devil.” 1 Timothy 3:2-7
