Do you think that God has uniquely wired you? Created you with a special purpose in mind? Did He give you work that you can use to honor Him?
Listen to what God says about your wiring, your gifting, your skills:
- “For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother’s womb.” Psalm 139:13
- “Before you were born, I set you apart for a special work.” Jeremiah 1:5
- “For we are God’s workmanship, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.” Ephesians 2:10
- “Don’t compare yourself with others. Each of you must take responsibility for doing the creative best you can with your own life.” Galatians 6:4-5 MSG
But, do you know that most people never really focus on their gifts? One study from an HR firm showed only 1% of their clients made a serious study of their skills.
Is it easy to figure out your gifting? NO!
Do your skills and interests change and evolve, as you have life experiences? YES!
But, be intentional about it. Research it. Pray about it. Then, see how God calls you to work!
