Lord, I may not be the strongest, the fastest, the smartest, or the most beautiful, but I know you can still use me in a powerful way. Teach me that the abilities you have given me are only maximized when they are used for your purposes. Please reveal to me my abilities and my spiritual gifts. I want to learn how to use those gifts for you, not just for myself, so I can realize what it means to honor and serve you. Show me how to fit my abilities into your plan, so that my life will yield great results in your eyes.
When someone has been given much, much will be required in return; and when someone has been entrusted with much, even more will be required. Luke 12:48.
Ronald A. Beers
The simple truth is God has given each of us a gift. The question is do you know that, and if you do, do you use that gift to serve him or for your own purpose. Many people claim the gift they have is simply something they have done on their own. That is just plain arrogance. They may think this because of what they get out of it. However, when we find the true reason and purpose behind the gift that God gave us, you will be truly blessed. He did not give you a gift for you own personal gain, it is meant to serve him and give him all honor, glory, and praise. Have a wonderful day! God bless you all!
