Hi, I had to get this down in words today. It’s a creed, a manifesto, a war cry. A summary, but not the end.
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.
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.
Some of us already know what those gifts are, and some haven’t even begun to scratch the surface.
Everyone has a gift.
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.
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.
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!

A blind surfer, saying he believes…
AUDIO ADRENALINE LYRICS
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
