You are meant to be God’s signature.
In the ancient book of Haggai, God told a man named Zerubbabel how He intended to use him. The Lord said, “and I will make you like my signet ring, for I have chosen you.” (Haggai 2.23)
A signet ring was a piece of metal jewelry with an etching of a seal on it. It was worn by royalty and when pressed into wax it would seal official pronouncements. You can probably picture it.
I love the analogy of the signet ring because it reminds me of what God wants to do with you. Just as a signet ring was worn on the king’s hand or around his neck, so God longs to keep you close to His hand and heart. More than that, if you are His child, He has given you His authority to leave His impression on this world. You are His autograph, His mark, His seal. Let me put it this way: When God wants to put His autograph on this planet, you are the pen He chooses. You are His signature.
And all you have to do is let God use you. Be a ring on his hand. Respond to His touch. So trust Him. Let Him work through you. Like a signet ring, you're the one who makes the impression, but God’s hand provides the weight.
