Different Gifts

We have different gifts, according to the grace given us.
Read Romans 12:6, NLT

No other person can do what God has designed you to do. Each of us has been given different gifts by God’s grace. It doesn’t appear that there are any better gifts or lesser ones — they’re just different. So our goal isn’t to determine the value of our gifts or compare our gifts to those others have received. The point is to use our gifts! What comes easy to you? What do you thoroughly enjoy doing? What would you do with your life if you weren’t thinking about earning an income? Look to those answers to see what your gifts might be. Once you find them and the Spirit confirms what you discover, give the gifts that you alone can give to God’s Kingdom and be a blessing to the world. In doing so you will bring God the glory He deserves.

• I am gifted and I use my gifts to serve the world and glorify my God.
• By faith I receive understanding of my gifts and direction for their use so I can be a blessing to others.
• I believe that I am fearfully and wonderfully made to accomplish great things.
