Good morning family and friends. God is capable of revealing so many awesome things if we just pay attention to His leading and guiding us to all truth.
Do we sometimes grieve over our limitations? We all have abilities, but we are also afflicted with inabilities. We may be tempted to use our limitations as an excuse for not doing the things God has enabled us to do. Just because we may not be gifted to speak in public or to sing in a choir doesn’t mean that we can sit on the spiritual sidelines doing nothing.
When we realize that all of us have limitations, we can move forward by seeking God’s guidance in using our gifts. Surely we can pray. But we also have to pray with expectation. Surely we can show kindness to others. We can visit the lonely, the sick, the elderly. We can tell with effective simplicity what Jesus means to us. Paul said, “Having then gifts differing according to the grace that is given to us, let us use them.” Romans 12:6
God will give you the gift and give you the faith to ask for the gift that you need. While thinking about the limitations that you may have, never include in that limiting your faith. There are no limitations on faith. Faith is not negotiable because without faith it is “impossible” to please God. Too many people make a mistake by burying their talents. You can’t experience what you don’t expect. God has no limits.
““Then the man who had received one bag of gold came. ‘Master,’ he said, ‘I knew that you are a hard man, harvesting where you have not sown and gathering, where you have not scattered seed. So I was afraid and went out and hid your gold in the ground. See, here is what belongs to you.’ “His master replied, ‘You wicked, lazy servant! So you knew that I harvest where I have not sown and gather where I have not scattered seed? Well then, you should have put my money on deposit with the bankers, so that when I returned I would have received it back with interest. So take the bag of gold from him and give it to the one who has ten bags.” Matthew 25:24-28
Live life, give people hope, share your heart, wisdom, and resources. Never place a period where God says there should be a comma.
As always peace and blessings, be safe. Take advantage of your opportunities but never allow your opportunities to take advantage of you. Remember God loves you and so do I. ©krw 4.20.16
