“…God gives us a certain Gifts, general to most ….uniquely special to some…”


God gives us a certain Gifts, general to most ….uniquely special to some.  As an example, I know that God has blessed me, to some degree, a “gift with words,” not to mention many other Gifts.  I work hard at utilizing that Gift for His honor and Glory, for fear that I might lose it through misuse, or abuse, thereby forfeiting it.  So it is in everyday life; business, and spiritual endeavors.  If we fail to utilize our skills (gifts) we will lose them through forfeiture.  Some may play the blame game, as to whose fault it might be.  Job, for an example, had a tendency to blame God…saying the Lord gives and the Lord takes.  BULL!  God will not take from us any gift of the Holy Spirit, but if we commit serious sin, we are deprived by our own poor choices; as was Adam and Eve, who were expelled from the Garden, to live off the soil.  We all have choices to make; even Lucifer, Job, and even did David, who despite his failures, considered God’s goodness and that God was not the cause of his pain and loss.  So David stood (1 Samuel 30:6) strengthened and eventually prevailed.  Remember it is satan that is in the DETAILS.  We have a choice to use our “GOD-GIVEN-GIFTS” wisely, or not – to lose, or to gain.  Have you counted your “GIFTS-FROM-HEAVEN” lately?  Have you thanked God for those Gifts lately?  John 10:10 says “The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full.”   ….Blessings…cjlb…11/11/13
