What are you using your God given Gifts for? If not for anything at all – “God has given each of you a gift from his great variety of spiritual gifts. Use them well to serve one another.” – 1 Peter 4:10
Many of us walk around in this life without knowing our purpose, much more, some do not even know they have gifts nor what to use these God given gifts for.
Knowing your purpose and the gifts you carry is key to knowing where to start, how to continue, how to finish and the things you will need.
God given gifts are without regret or repentance, and yes of course He will not coerce you to use it for His glory but is a demand from every single one. God does not need our gifts to make Him God, the gifts are to help one another.
For instance, God doesn’t get sick to need the gift of healing to make Him better, rather it is a neighbour or a family member or even yourself that needs the gift of your healing hands to get him or her into wellness. God doesn’t need your voice to sing to His glory because He has a multitude of angels singing praises and raising worship every second unending. Do you think God has use for the gift of prophecy to tell things He already knows? God has no need for the numerous spiritual gifts for He gives, it is solely for the needs and uses of man.
Why are you behaving as though you are doing God a favour by using the gifts He freely gave you? It is to the advantage of your own self, your friends, family and humanity at large.
If you will wake up to the realise what your job description is and make yourself useful it will be for your own good because there are millions of better people who would take your place to do what you are dragging your feet about.
Dear LORD, awaken in me whatever gifts you have given me and guide me to be able to put it to an impactful use of helping others and above all to the glory of your name.
