What Has He Called You To Do?

There are many “good things” to do in our churches and in the Kingdom. We love the Lord so much we want to do them all!

Beloved, you are not called to do everything! You are only called to do those things that the Lord has called you to do!

As each of us walk in our calling….as each of us use the Gifts that have been given us by the Holy Spirit…God’s work shall be done!

Do NOT allow the enemy to use guilt to have you take on more than you should.

We are all just a part of the Body of Christ. Let Him who is the Head tell us how to move in perfect harmony with one another.

Beloved, lay down frustration, weariness, and pride…and let God tell you when to move and when to rest…

TAKE YOUR POSITION!

IMG_1246There is such joy in walking in the calling that God has placed upon our lives!! There is such joy in using our spiritual gifts for others!!

I attended a church service in my community tonight. My plan was to just go and receive. And I did indeed receive – encouragement, confirmation, and love from those attending…along with solid biblical teaching!

But, the Lord also used me for others as well. I prophesied over 5 people there as a result of visions He gave me for them. Thank You, Lord!!

I have found that when we have a spiritual gift, it is hard to just “turn it off!” And why would we want to? God gives His gifts to be used!

Are you walking in your gift? Are you using it for His glory? Are you experiencing the joy that comes from ministering to others?

It is time to step out in faith and take your position in the body of Christ! You are needed and God will use you mightily!

HOLY SPIRIT VALENTINES

As I was thinking of Valentine’s Day and the gifts that are given to each other to express our love, I found my thoughts going to the gifts of the Holy Spirit.

In 1 Corinthians 12, the gifts of the Holy Spirit are listed.  I invite you to look them up and pray about which one(s) the Lord has given you to be used for His glory.

These gifts are not given to us to be put on a shelf and taken out and admired…but, they are given to us to be used for the body of Christ – for the Church – and to be used in the world to be a witness to others of God’s amazing Love for them.

The most important gift of all is LOVE!  I see God’s Love as the wrapping that surrounds each gift.  As we use our gifts in the church and in the world, each gift is offered in the covering of LOVE.

This Valentine’s Day may we start fresh and be intentional about using the gifts of God in places we have not thought of using them.  May we be open to the leading of the Holy Spirit to step out in FAITH and distribute His grace and love wherever He takes us.

May everyday be a special day to express God’s Love!  Are you willing to deliver His Valentines of Love to the world? 

Now to each one the manifestation of the Spirit is given for the common good.”                                   (1 Corinthians 12:7 NIV)

Follow the way of love and eagerly desire gifts of the Spirit…(1 Corinthians 14:1)
