Happy beautiful day to you! We rejoice and are glad in this day! (Ps 118:24)
As each one has received a gift, minister it to one another, as good stewards of the manifold grace of God. (1 Pe 4:10 KJV)
Even so you, since you are zealous for spiritual gifts, let it be for the edification of the church that you seek to excel. (1 Cor 14:12)
Every believer has received gifts and talents from the Lord. God wants us to use the gifts that He has entrusted to us for the strengthening and encouragement of fellow believers. God wants us to be good stewards or managers of these precious gifts.
Your gifts may be extensive; you may have gifts such as: faith; musical ability; artistic talent; patience; organizational ability; mercy; mathematical aptitude; peace; perceptiveness; or whatever. Invite the Lord to show you how He would like you to use the gifts that He has given you in order to bless other people and to further His kingdom.
If you have a calm and peaceful spirit combined with good note-taking skills, your boss may direct you to attend most meetings with him. He may not realize why! He may say that he wants you to take notes, but it may really be that he just feels better and thinks more clearly when you’re there! In reality, you carry a beneficial atmosphere (of calm and peace) into the room. These are God’s divine gifts, and they work supernaturally.
Don’t forget that, as you mature spiritually and chronologically, more gifts will bloom in your life. Seek the Lord’s guidance, and He will teach you the best use of all of your gifts!
