So, my very dear friends, don’t get thrown off course. Every desirable and beneficial gift comes out of heaven. The gifts are rivers of light cascading down from the Father of Light. There is nothing deceitful in God, nothing two-faced, nothing fickle. He brought us to life using the true Word, showing us off as the crown of all his creatures.
Alright, in the last two blogs I explained how we each have a gift of our own and that we should not desire to have someone else’s gift. Today let’s explore opening and using our gift. Do you remember Christmas time when you were a kid, how excited you were to open presents? Then you would play with it for like a month and then on to the next exciting toy on the market. Some of us do this with our gift.
Others open the box and for whatever reason are afraid to take it out of the box. Some use part of their gift and others take the whole gifting out and use it everyday. Since each of us come from all different walks of life we may also just be in different stages of using our gift.
When I first began to write, I kept it to myself or I shared with a select few people. Now that I am fully aware that my writing is a gift from God to use to spread the Good News, I am more willing to share it with the world not just a few persons. Using your gift takes some risk, especially when you first figure out you even have a gift.
Some people at first tend to deny that their gift is even usable. They might be shy or insecure about the gift they have inside and it takes time to develop it. I am a little on the shy side myself so when I began writing I wasn’t even sure it was worth the time or the effort, however, as God began to unfold the people it was touching, I then began to gain confidence.
So have you figured out what your gift is? Did you open it yet? Are you ready to begin to use it? I encourage you to open it and try it on for size. God will lead you in the right directions and open any necessary doors for you. Trust in God to help you see what a difference you can make with your gift.
