If you're sitting on your God-given gifts and talents, then make no mistake there's a whole lot of folks suffering unnecessarily because of you!
The purpose of our gifts and talents is to improve, advance and simplify the lives of others. This is aside from its primary purpose which is bringing glory to God. Our gifts are not about us, again it will and always be about others.
There are many of you reading this post right now that are excellent singers, teachers, coordinators, etc. however, you're probably wondering why is it that, that grand opportunity haven't arrived to launch you into what you love and enjoy doing. Well, just maybe, it is because your focus is more on what your gifts and talents will do for you as opposed to what it was intended to do for others.
Speaking from experience, I can say to you that my gifts and talents that I'm on a consistent basis sharing with others have on many occasions open unexpected doors of opportunity for me. I would like to encourage someone this morning who have been wondering when will your gifts begin opening doors for you.
Firstly, you must put aside the wealth and fame that has become your primary thoughts as to what your gifts will do for you. Instead, begin to focus on freely sharing your gifts with others and watch your gifts do to their lives what it was intended to do, while God begins the process of opening those once impossible doors of opportunity for you!
