The Gift Is Within

for God’s gifts and his call are irrevocable.

Romans 11:29

What is the undercurrent that runs within you? Have you identified your gifts? Have you begun to cultivate the gifts within after identifying them? It’s a lot to think about, I know, but it’s necessary that we discover the gifts within us that God wants us to use for His glory in the earth.

On one occasion during the holidays, I received a gift, and instead of opening it immediately, I placed it in my office with my “stuff.” Several months went by before I realized that I’d never opened the gift and when I did, I was saddened that I’d missed a wonderful opportunity – not opening that gift cost me. Not recognizing the value in the gift given to you by the Father is also costly. When the Holy Spirit speaks to you, revealing your truth – your gifts, are you able to receive it? Too many times, we negate what we hear because we lack the confidence needed to move forward. Honey, His gifts, and his call are irrevocable. No one can deny you, defy you, silence you, stop you if God has gifted you – but you! I hear your thoughts, “I don’t want what I see, it’s too much!”, I tried that, and it didn’t work. You like hiding behind the scene, I get it, I used to enjoy that life too, but my gifts made room for me and opened doors to places I’d never imagine, and God wants to do the same thing for you.

Do yourself a favor; stop asking other people what your gifts are. They will offer you an answer, but most of the time the ones that you’re asking don’t know the truth about themselves. Daddy always reveals our truth to us, still! If your gift(s) has/have not been made clear to you, continue to seek the Father in prayer and fasting for the answer. There is a gift within you that wants to come forth! Believe in yourself, tap into what has been given to you by God and make a difference.
