IAM Gifted

1 Peter 4:10-11 NLT God has given each of you a gift from his great variety of spiritual gifts. Use them well to serve one another. Do you have the gift of speaking? Then speak as though God himself were speaking through you. Do you have the gift of helping others? Do it with all the strength and energy that God supplies. Then everything you do will bring glory to God through Jesus Christ. All glory and power to him forever and ever! Amen.

It hurts my ears when I hear anyone say that they are not smart enough, or skilled enough or talented enough to do the things they dream of.  Even for myself, I ask God everyday for faith to always believe in God to be the power behing any vision. I know that when I utter any false truth about myself, I hurt myself.  I cut off all opportunities to do anything great.  Just by a misguided thought.

 

When I think of all the gifted and talented people in this world who have settled for the middle class safe first world dream.  It makes me sad, because those people are not in what seems like any major danger.  But they are frozen in effectiveness.  Just like those people in the matrix, living in a programmed dull life without ever doing anything of impact.  And if that’s not a slow death, I don’t know what is. That’s not worthy of the life that Jesus laid down for us.

Don’t waste another day or moment living settling for an average life.

I see you!
God has gifted you!

Some of us already know what those gifts are, and some haven’t even begun to scratch the surface.
Everyone has a gift.

God makes it pretty clear: Use those gifts to serve one another.

Use those gifts as if God was acting through you.
Do it with all of the strength and energy that God supplies.
Do God’s supplies ever run out?  I don’t think so!
I know that when I am God’s conduit to do his work, I don’t feel tired.  I get more and more pumped up.
I feel like an 18 year old young buck again!. Ready to take over the world!   That’s the place I want to be in every day of my life.
Can you tell I am a morning person?
God needs night people also!  People who get on their knees and battle for souls all night long.

And that serving of others has one purpose:  To Bring Glory to God through Jesus.

Yes, it’s nice to hear the finely tuned sports athlete who’s gift is to deliver bone crushing tackles on the gridiron in a post victory interview to give all the Glory to God.  It makes an impact for how God wants to use that person.
We have the opportunity to Give Glory to God in your amazing giftedness.

You have an amazing gift that when developed and perfected through the power of the Holy Spirit, will allow you to be one of the best of the best!  Do you believe that?
You have an inner genius that God has made a part of your soul fiber that is waiting to be used by the Creator!

 

Pray and ask God to show you what you are gifted in
Ask your close brothers and sisters in Christ: What am I gifted in?

Then ask God to put you in situations to use them, and exercise and fine tune them!
Then point your hands to the heaven and give all the Glory to God!

AUDIO ADRENALINE LYRICS

 “Believer”

 

I want to live this live unsafe, unsure, but not afraid
What I want is to give all I got somehow
Giving up letting go of control right now‘Cause I’m already out here, blind but I can see
I see the way You’re moving
God how I believe that

I can push back the mountains, can stand on the waves
I can see through the darkness, I’ll hold up the flame
Take me to the ocean I want to go deeper
I’m not afraid no, I’m a believer

And so I lose this life to find my way and come alive
They can try to deny what’s inside of me
But there is more, can’t ignore all the things unseen

Oh I believe I can walk on water with You, Lord

When I walk through the valley of the shadows
When I’m trapped in the middle of the battle
I will trust in You
‘Cause trouble comes, but you never let it take me
I hold fast ‘cause I know that You will save me
I will trust in You, I will trust in You

Oh here I stand all alone waiting on you, Lord
Waiting on You
