When I think of the many gifts and talents that God has placed within us the lyrics from a beautiful song come to mind:
“The gift, it looks good on you. God has graced you and you wear it well!”
What you carry can only be carried by you. The way you do things is unique to you. Your gift looks better on you than on anyone else. No one else can do what you do the way that you do it! Believe in the power of your gift(s). Believe in the things that God has given to you. Believe his word and his promises–they have been written to affirm and strengthen you. A gift is only given to a person to bless him/her. For every gift you possess there is a plan to bless you. Honor your gifts and talents by honoring God with your faith. When you do that, he promises to honor you and do things you’ve never dreamed of (Ephesians 3:20). Stick with your gifts and your gifts will stick with you. They will follow you, they will go before you and they will allow you to accomplish great things (Proverbs 18:16).
WINSday Affirmation: “If God gave it to me, it’s worth working for and keeping. If God placed it inside of me, it’s worth tapping into. If God spoke it to me, it’s worth listening to. If God wrote it, it’s worth believing.”
Scripture: A man’s gift makes room for him and brings him before great men (Proverbs 18:16).
Prayer: Dear God, help my friend that is reading this message grow to learn and understand the power of their gift(s). Help them to flourish in every area of their gift(s). In the name of Jesus, Amen.
God bless you and may God bless your gift(s). Stick with your gifts! This is your year!
