Your Gift Will Make a Wayadmin888
How is the fulfillment of vision meant to work in practical terms? Proverbs 18:16 is a powerful statement that reveals the answer: “A man’s gift makes room for him” ( NKJV ). You were designed to be known for your gift. It is in exercising this gift that you will find real fulfillment, purpose, and contentment in your work. Your gift may be in leadership or organization; it may be in educating adults or children; it may be singing or leading worship in church. God has very specifically placed a purpose and gift in you.
It is interesting to note that the Bible does not say that a man’s education makes room for him, but that his gift does. Somehow we have swallowed the idea that education is the key to success. Our families and society have reinforced this idea, but we will have to change our perspective if we are to be truly successful. While education can’t give you your gift, it can help you develop it so that it can be used to the maximum. If education alone were the key to success, then everyone who has a Ph.D. should be financially secure and happy.
If you are intelligent but are not exercising your gift, you’re probably going to be poor. If you’re educated but have not developed your talent, you’re likely to be depressed, frustrated, and tired. Education, in itself, doesn’t guarantee anything; it is your God-given gift that is the key to your success.
Prayer: Father, thank You that You are a gift-giving God. Thank You for giving me gifts with which to serve You. Using those gifts will bring me fulfillment in life. Please continue to reveal these gifts to me.
In Jesus’ name, amen.
Thought: Your God-given gift is the key to your success.
