I Timothy 1:7 For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.

I Corinthians 7:7 For I would that all men were even as myself. But every man hath his proper gift of God, one after this manner, and another after that.

As humans, we are not infallible, however, we have a High Priest that will pick us up each and every time we fall. We’ve made the mistake of abdicating our responsibilities for our salvation, our families, our children, our finances, our relationships, and our visions and dreams to do all God has placed in us, to others. It is time to stir up the gifts God has placed inside each of us becoming responsible for our own destiny.

Do “it” fearless. Do “it” with faith all the way. Do “it” one day at a time. Just do it…whatever “it” may be in your life and in this season. You do know the “its” are subject to change as seasons change so just go ahead and do “it”.

Although seasons change, your gifts remain the same. And as you change from glory to glory, as God stirs up and places His anointing and greater desires within you to utilize the gifts, be bold and courageous and JUST DO IT!

Sometimes we feel like we’re ill-fitted, not qualified to do it. Not so. Whatever God has placed inside you, He has equipped and prepared you to do the job. If He’s given it to you, you are well able to accomplish it.

For all intents and purposes, we are the eyes, hands, ears, feet and mouthpiece for God. He gave these to us to use for His glory–for kingdom building. Use them!

Your gift may be different than that of another. Don’t hate on someone for the gift they have. Use yours! Every man has his proper gift of God. There’s no room for competition, envy, jealousy…this is about collaboration and completion…for His glory!

As an example, you manage a business that consists of you, the manager, a secretary and two sales people. You have clients/customers that take advantage of the services you offer.  You own the business so you hire a cleaning crew to keep it nice and tidy. Who’s the most important person in the company? You might think the manager or perhaps it’s the customer but in all honesty each of them are equally important as they each use their individual gifts to help the company run smoothly. One cannot operate efficiently without the other. That should keep us humble knowing that we are all a part of a big puzzle with each person’s gift creating the completion of the puzzle.

Remember the word says, your gift will make room for you and bring you before great men. Your gifts are for you, but more importantly, operating in and using the gifts God has given you will touch and benefit the lives of many others. Your gifts and talents are not just for you. Don’t allow your passivity, procrastination or fear to cause not only you to miss out on great blessings from God but also delays the blessings of others.

Be courageous! God has not given us a spirit of fear. Let go of anything holding you back. Stir it up, stir it up!
