"As every man hath received the gift (our personal abilities), even so minister the same one to another, as good stewards of the manifold grace of God.."
In Exodus 3, when God spoke to Moses at the burning bush and told him to go on back to Egypt and lead the people out to the Promised Land, Moses said, “You’ve got to be kidding, I couldn't possibly handle a job like that.” Even though God assured Moses He would help him, and give him everything he needed to succeed, Moses had a hard time believing he was up to the task. He begged God to let him off the hook saying, “I can’t speak well, I don’t have a college degree, I’m an ex-convict. Please, send anyone else!"
God has blessed you with many unique gifts, talents, and abilities. When God gives us an assignment, He not only provides the finances needed, He supplies all the abilities you need to finish the job. Don’t balk like Moses did when you hear your personal call!
What have you done with the gifts and abilities God has given you? Have you invested the time to develop them to their fullest?
Lord, thank you for the talents and abilities you have given me. If there are any gifts I have overlooked, point them out to me, Lord. I ask You to give me the wisdom and opportunities to use my abilities in a way that will bring honor and glory to You.
