“Each person is given something to that shows who God is.” (1 Corinthians 12:7)
“Everything comes from God alone. Everything lives by His power, and everything is for His glory.” (Rom. 11:36)
*Excerpt from Cure For the Common Life by Max Lucado:
“The breath you just took? God gave that. The blood that just pulsed through your heart? Credit God. The light by which you read and the brain through which you process? He gave you both. Everything comes from Him… And exists for Him. We exist to exhibit God, to display His glory.”
You have been gifted and blessed uniquely. The enemy would love to tell you otherwise. 1 Cor. 12:7 makes it clear that we have each been given “a special way of serving others”. You were uniquely formed and created & endowed with one blessing after another so that we would as Lucado says “make a big deal out of God”. In his words:
Use your uniqueness (what you do)
To make a big deal out of God (why you do it)
Every day of your life (where you do it)
And when we do this, we will be living in our sweet spot.
Lord reveal to me the gifts you have given me. Make me aware of the unique talents, skills, passions, gifts…that You have bestowed, and then help me use them for your glory.
