A man’s gift makes room for him And brings him before great men. Proverbs 18:16 NKJV
God created the heavens and the earth. He created the plant life. He created the creatures in our world. Only God could have designed the multitude of creatures that exist. Each of them is unique. Each has a specific role to play in its environment.
God created you in His image and likeness. You are His greatest creation. The Lord created you with a unique set of gifts and talents.
God did not create you to live a life of mediocrity. He created you to be special and unique. God created you for greatness. God’s ways are not our ways. To be great in the kingdom of God is to be a servant of Jesus Christ and His people.
I know a man who dreams about people. He prays for them. He prays for the people he finds himself thinking about. This man has the gift of intercessory prayer. He does not tell anyone. No one ever knows. God knows.
We do not know how God is using those prayers. He may be doing great and mighty things for the kingdom of God. God is working in him and through him to help people!
You may not know what your spiritual gifts are. You may think you have this or that gift, but it is not a spiritual gift.
Any talent or gift you have can be used to glorify God and bless other people. If you are not sure what your spiritual gifts are ask God to show you. Then step out in faith and use them for the glory of God. The Lord will honor your faith by adding to it!
Do not think you only have one spiritual gift and not any others. God gives grace to the humble in spirit and opposes the proud in heart. Jesus does not call the prepared to serve Him. Jesus prepares the called to join Him in His ministry.
If you are willing to humble yourself before Jesus He will prepare you to serve Him. If you are willing to serve Jesus He will give you what you need when you need it!
Do not let the cares of the world keeping you from trusting Jesus with your life. Do not let self-doubt keep you from serving Jesus. Do not let anything keep you from living a rich abundant life today!
Do not let anything keep you from sharing the love of God with people who desperately need to know His love!
Has God given you a vision or desire to serve Jesus? Step out in faith today! Do something you have never done before that lifts-up the Name of Jesus before the world!
Do not hide your light under a basket or anything else. Let the light of God’s love shine forth from your heart every day!
