Scriptures: I Corinthians 12:1, 4-6 1Now about the gifts of the Spirit, brothers and sisters, I do not want you to be uninformed. 4 There are different kinds of gifts, but the same Spirit distributes them. 5 There are different kinds of service, but the same Lord. 6 There are different kinds of working, but in all of them and in everyone it is the same God at work. (NIV)
Nugget: Gifts, lately my thoughts & meditations have been about the gifts that God has instilled in me. These same gifts are ones that I’m using, ones that I’m trying to use, or ones that I haven’t even tapped into yet. Then I came across these scriptures! What confirmation God has given me.
There are so many things that we sit on & do not even activate. Meaning, what is that dream that you had that you haven’t achieved yet (or haven’t even stepped out of the box to begin to achieve)? It’s most likely that you’re sitting on the gifts that God has in you; these are the God-given gifts that only can be activated once you tap into what God has put in you. For me, it’s my writing; I need to continue on the path that God has for me--utilizing the gifts that He’s put in me.
One of the main things that could be hindering you from stepping out & achieving your dreams is that you haven’t tapped into the gift(s) God has in you; your dream & getting started is connected to Him. Most likely, there’s no other way to achieve it until you tap into Him, activate your gifts, & walk in faith.
Take some time today to talk to God, meditate & pray about your gifts; don’t sit on them. Allow God to show you how to walk in Him; don’t sit back on what He’s put in you.
Quote: “The gift is not something we learn. It is something God gave us. It is something we need to discover and then stir up. No one else can activate your gift for you.” -Dr. Myles Monroe
