Gifts

January 6, 2021

We have different gifts according to the grace given to each of us. If your gift is prophesying, then prophesy in accordance with your faith. Romans 12:6

Though I’m sure prophesying is not my gift, I’m not sure what gifts God wants me to use for Him. We all have God-given gifts. In fact, I believe all gifts come from Him. But what gifts do I possess that are to be used for Him? What can I do better or more than anyone else? 

I have often thought about this question but still do not really have an answer. I know that God uses me as He sees fit, but I’d like to know which part of the body I am. What gift or area is uniquely created in me for His use? As I ponder this question, it comes to mind that on a given day or in a set of circumstances the answer may change. I’m not saying that I have so many gifts that I have a hard time choosing. I’m simply saying that maybe it isn’t a specific area that I’m gifted in or one way in which God expects me to respond. Rather, if I look to Him to use me in any number of simple, small things, that is my purpose. Even though I would like a grand calling that might be really appealing, I think it is the small details to which I am called. This allows for His glory to be reflected back to Him instead of me being tempted to boast about my accomplishments. 

I pray that as I grow in faith I will find contentment in doing the small things to which I am called and not desire a grander or different call.

Lord in all things let me trust in you. Amen
