THE GIFT ~ IS FOR YOU!
In order to find out what is inside the box, you must open it. Taking that one step to action and looking inside. I would like to compare this example to God. He has given us the gift of life and so much more. He has given us free will and an open door for greatness. Making great choices is important, but when we make a bad one, there is the gift of forgiveness.
1 Corinthians 12 New Century Version (NCV)
Gifts from the Holy Spirit
12 Now, brothers and sisters, I want you to understand about spiritual gifts. 2 You know the way you lived before you were believers. You let yourselves be influenced and led away to worship idols—things that could not speak. 3 So I want you to understand that no one who is speaking with the help of God’s Spirit says, “Jesus be cursed.” And no one can say, “Jesus is Lord,” without the help of the Holy Spirit.
4 There are different kinds of gifts, but they are all from the same Spirit. 5 There are different ways to serve but the same Lord to serve. 6 And there are different ways that God works through people but the same God. God works in all of us in everything we do.
7 Something from the Spirit can be seen in each person, for the common good. 8 The Spirit gives one person the ability to speak with wisdom, and the same Spirit gives another the ability to speak with knowledge. 9 The same Spirit gives faith to one person. And, to another, that one Spirit gives gifts of healing.
10 The Spirit gives to another person the power to do miracles, to another the ability to prophesy. And he gives to another the ability to know the difference between good and evil spirits. The Spirit gives one person the ability to speak in different kinds of languages and to another the ability to interpret those languages. 11 One Spirit, the same Spirit, does all these things, and the Spirit decides what to give each person.
THE GIFT or GIFTS
It becomes time to look into ourselves. God given you a gift and it's time to open it. Some of us travel through life and never fulfill our purpose of God using our lives. We have the same spirit after surrounding our lives to God. We were never meant to be the same in life. Therefore, stop comparing your life to someone else.
I hear some people who say, they are not smart enough or good enough to be used by God. This is simply not true, because God uses a life that is willing to surrender to his plan. That means, he wants to use you to be an example of what is right. Go ahead, open the gift before you and keep a thankful heart for new beginnings.
