Do you know that you have something very meaningful to carry out in this earth? It’s something that you and you alone can do. You are here by divine assignment. God has instilled unique gifts and abilities on the inside of you, and every day you should purpose to go about expressing and living out what He has put on the inside. Someone needs what you have. You’re not fully living, until you’re able to walk out what you have been put on this earth to do. Even if you’re not quite sure and aware of what it is in which you are to function, it doesn’t mean that purpose doesn’t reside on the inside of you. It’s just lying dormant, waiting to be awakened. Yes, my friend, you have much to give and offer to the world around you.
Every single day is a day of discovery and unveiling. When we’re going about life and interacting with people and things, we must ask God to make our purpose clear and continue to unfold what and how He desires for us to walk in it. We have to keep first things first, and the most important of those firsts is found in Matthew 6:33, “But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness, and all these things shall be added unto you”. All this is saying, is to first remember to pray and seek out God’s way of doing or handling things. We never want to get our priorities mixed up, because He is the main one orchestrating all of this. Notice that once we first seek Him and how He wants us to go about living our lives, then, everything else is added or becomes clearer into full manifestation. In seeking Him, God will reveal, even more, the different gifts He has bestowed upon us and show us how He wants us to use them in helping others. Yes, our gifts are not for us, but for others, and you’re never more full of life and purpose than when you’re using what you have to serve those, in your sphere of the world.
Once we know what we are called to do on this earth, and we get to the point where we’re fully operating in it, on a daily basis, we begin to feel that life has meaning. We now have something to live for. Then, when we are actively and effectively using our gifts, scripture tells us that, “A man’s gift maketh room for him, and bringeth him before great men” (Proverbs 18:16). However, I like the Message version which says, “A gift gets attention; it buys the attention of eminent people”. See, when you recognize the importance of discovering your gifts, and begin using them to fulfill your purpose consistently and with passion, God will allow it where prominent individuals are strategically placed near you and they will notice that you have something significant in which to contribute. It really is amazing how God works. He is responsible for uniquely designing you, instilling gifts and callings that are accompanied by your tailor made personality, and ultimately positioning you in the right place, before the right people, so you can display and fulfill your purpose in a manner that will bless others and be pleasing to Him.
I want to encourage you today in knowing that you have been gifted to give. God has put so much treasure within you, and your job is to ask Him to help in discovering all that lies within you and how you can get about flowing in those gifts. These gifts will, in turn, help encourage, build and strengthen the lives of others. It’s in you! Go ahead and tap into it. People are waiting!
“Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and cometh down from the Father of lights, with whom is no variableness, neither shadow of turning”(James 1:17 KJV).
