Being gifted is a phrase we immediately connect to those that are a cut above. In the father’s eyes that is absolutely true. I admit, I am somewhat of a doting dad. While I do not think my kids are perfect, I find each of them to be amazing in different ways. I praise God for them and their unique qualities.
It is the same with God. As our father, he takes great joy in watching each of his chosen use the gifts he has given. They are dramatically diverse. But, whatever the gifting, We need to use the gifts he has given to bring him glory. We do that by being content with who and whose we are.
If we focus on using the gifts he has shared and also focus on following him, we will become content and invaluable to the journey we are on. Thanks Lord for the gifts you have given me. Help me to use them for your glory.
Thanks to everyone that is praying for my Mom. I am here at her side in Oklahoma and she seems to be doing a little better. Keep praying.
God Bless You
4 There are different kinds of spiritual gifts, but the same Spirit is the source of them all. 5 There are different kinds of service, but we serve the same Lord. 6 God works in different ways, but it is the same God who does the work in all of us.
7 A spiritual gift is given to each of us so we can help each other. 8 To one person the Spirit gives the ability to give wise advice; to another the same Spirit gives a message of special knowledge. 9 The same Spirit gives great faith to another, and to someone else the one Spirit gives the gift of healing. 10 He gives one person the power to perform miracles, and another the ability to prophesy. He gives someone else the ability to discern whether a message is from the Spirit of God or from another spirit. Still another person is given the ability to speak in unknown languages, while another is given the ability to interpret what is being said. 11 It is the one and only Spirit who distributes all these gifts. He alone decides which gift each person should have.
