Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above and cometh down from the Father of lights, with whom is no variableness, neither shadow of turning.
James 1:17 KJV

A man’s gift makes room for him and brings him before great men.
(Proverbs 18:16, NASB)

Our talents are the gift that God gives to us… What we make of our talents is our gift back to God
Leo Buscaglia

And what is the sole purpose of man?

After all this, there is only one thing to say: have reverence for God, and obey his commands, because this is all that human beings were created for.
Ecclesiastes 12:13 GNB

To be obedient to God in reverence is to be a living sacrifice to Him.

The only gift is a portion of thyself. ~Ralph Waldo Emerson

In you, God has deposited the skills that can open new doors, skills that can lead to an abundant life, but the key is that the skills have to be developed. As you spend growing, learning and improving, you’re getting prepared for that new level.

Today, while you’re waiting for that new opportunity, start sharpening your skills. When God sees that you are prepared, then He can open new doors. The scripture says, “Your gifts will make room for you.” Keep developing your skills because there is a giant slayer in you!

 

GLEANINGS:

  • Acknowledge the gifts and talents the Almighty deposited in you.
  • Develop and sharpen them.
  • Direct them back to Him by using these gifts to the benefit of His Kingdom.
  • Receive and enjoy your blessings
