“And let us consider how we may spur one another on toward love and good deeds, not giving up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but encouraging one another — and all the more as you see the Day approaching.” – Hebrews 10:24-25 (NIV)
Think about the unique gifts God has given you: the desires of your heart, your strengths, your abilities. Often, these wonderful talents and skills are so deeply instilled by God – given only to you – that they don’t feel like work or extra effort. They come naturally, and even bring us joy when we choose to use them.
These are gifts only you can give. And it’s for a reason.
Take some time to think about your gifts. Then, think of how you can use them, even if it feels uncomfortable. God might be asking you to step out in faith and use your gifts for His glory.
- In what ways has God used your gifts in unexpected ways?
- How have your spiritual gifts grown in times of hardship?
- What is God asking you to do?
