There was a time in my life that I wouldn’t dare to say to anyone that I am genius. However, as I have grown and experienced life, I realised that while I am not the Genius of Mother Theresa or Nelson Mandela or Jesus Christ, I am genius regardless.
I am genius because God lives in me and moves me to will and to do of His good pleasure. I am genius not because the Guinness book of records says so, but because the Book that matters; the Bible tells me so and I believe what it says.
My genius is useful to heaven which is why He sent me here to deploy it for His glory. For every word I write and you read and are blessed, my genius shines through and heaven is glorified. For every word I speak, and you are inspired, my genius is released and heaven is gloried. I am genius and I am no longer too humble to not recognise that.
You are genius because in Genesis 2:7, God breath upon man and man became a living soul.
When we refuse to acknowledge our genius, when we refuse to own our genius, when we refuse to deploy our genius, we are not being humble, we are denying heaven all the glory we were put on earth to bring.
Which is why I make bold to shout at the top of my lungs that I am genius and I honestly encourage you to do the same. No this is not a boast, it is a statement of fact. My genius may differ from yours, and yours may be on display before a very large audience, yet it doesn’t rub the shine off my own genius even if only my family sees it.
To deploy genius adequately, we must first acknowledge and recognise it and that is where most of us miss it.
Friends, you are genius and that is not heresy, you are genius because you are created in the image and likeness of God and since that is the case, regardless of what anyone tries to say to you…
Ultimately…you are genius. Don’t ever allow anyone tell you anything contrary.
