Remember the illustration from my message last Sunday?
God has a set of blueprints for you. They outline your foundation and purpose and create you to withstand the tests this world will throw at you.
Ps 119:105 Your word is a lamp to guide my feet and a light for my path. (NLT)
What do your blueprints say about you?
Romans 12: 6 - 8 6 In his grace, God has given us different gifts for doing certain things well. So, if God has given you the ability to prophesy, speak out with as much faith as God has given you. 7. If your gift is serving others, serve them well. If you are a teacher, teach well. 8. If your gift is to encourage others, be encouraging. If it is giving, give generously. If God has given you leadership ability, take the responsibility seriously. And if you have a gift for showing kindness to others, do it gladly. (NLT)
I could blog about this for weeks, but I want to focus on this fact.
You are so gifted!
That’s right - YOU! God has given you at least one of these gifts, maybe more. But do you know what they are?
Hell loves to keep you as stupid as possible. I hope that the last sentence insults you because it is true. Don’t live in ignorance. Discover what God has given you, and then commit it to Him. Then, watch what the Lord can do through you.
Dear Jesus, what are my gifts? Empower me to do them for You. AMEN
