God has given you all kinds gifts. Some come through as talent. Others are revealed through character. Some are gifts to you as well as through you that bring such joy that you can’t wait to share them. Some are so close to your heart that you are afraid to reveal them. Peter told believers that “Each of you should use whatever gift you have received to serve others, as faithful stewards of God’s grace in its various forms.”( 1 Peter 4:10 NIV)
The gifts you have been given are to be given away: to serve, to love, to mend, to tend, to bless, to build. The gift that you are with your smile and words, your hands and heart, how you cook or clean, create or organize, how you lead and follow, bless and pray is meant to be given, not hidden. Salt is made for seasoning, light is made for lighting. Gifts are made for giving. The more precious they are to you, the more powerful they will be for others.
God uses the gifts He has given you to introduce others to the gift of Jesus. Ask God to use whatever gifts He has given you to let others know how much He loves them. Surrender your fear. Don’t overthink it, simply step out in faith, believe God and use your gifts to the glory of God today.
