GRATITUDE MONDAY WITH LESLIE BRISCOE
What you're working with
Wow! This is such a great message- the line that mentions "not spending time improving your weaknesses" and "not wasting valuable time focused on things outside of your natural gifting" smacked me in the face. I've been conditioned to always improve the weakness or "opportunity" as it is described in Corporate America! Ha! It's easy to forget who and whose we are and that at the end of the day He will make it happen regardless of the review, chart, survey, etc.! Flowing in our grace is the key! Hope you enjoy this as much as I did!
“Do not neglect your gift...”
(1 Timothy 4:14, NIV)
Pursue Your Strengths
God has equipped each one of us with specific gifts and talents. It’s up to each of us to identify those gifts and be disciplined enough to develop them. You have to learn to stay in your strength zone. What are you naturally good at? What do you enjoy doing? Take the time to identify your strengths and weaknesses, and as the Scripture says, give yourself to your gifts. In other words, don’t spend all your time trying to improve your weaknesses. Don’t waste valuable days pursuing things that are outside your main gifting. Focus on your strengths.
Be bold and step out in the area of your gifting. Are you good with people? Are you good with your hands? Do you have a great voice? Find ways to develop those gifts. Know that your gifts and talents are a part of your divine destiny. If you’ll be comfortable with who God made you to be and thank Him for your unique gifting, you’ll not only enjoy your life more, but you’ll be ready to receive the abundant blessing God has in store for you!
A Prayer for Today
“Father, thank You for equipping me with everything I need to be successful in this life. Show me how to develop the gifts within me for Your glory in Jesus’ name. Amen.”
