Practicing The Gift You’ve Been Given…

God has given us all a gift. Whether it’s a gift of forgiveness or being loyal or whether it’s singing or photography. God made us with our own unique gift, though you might not know what you gift is straight away. But once you know what it is make sure you practice your gift.  When I was 14, I was prophesied over. This was my prophecy;

My music will be used to bless people and will be heard by many people. I would have my own songs . But it also came with a warning about not letting pride become too strong.

Straight away my thought was WOW, I’m going to be a singer!! It wasn’t until I was talking to someone afterwards that I realised, it may not be singing I would be recognised by. It may be making music instead. But I was excited to say the least. I thought I knew my future from that prophecy. Where I went wrong was I tried to force it instead of letting God opening up windows for me. And when those windows I tried to open myself wouldn’t open, I would give up and stop practising my gift.

Here’s a small tip for when you find your gift…don’t let ANYONE stop you from doing it! It is your gift for a reason. Use it to the best of your abilities! You might never know, you could change someone’s life with your gift.

Here’s some verses from the bible about your gift from God.

1 Peter 4:10 – As each has received a gift, use it to serve one another, 2as good stewards of God’s varied grace:

Romans 12:6 – We have different gifts, according to the grace given to each of us. If your gift is prophesying, then prophesy in accordance with your faith

    Hi the gift that we have is from God. I also had a prophesy when I was young but put me under pressure to perform it. I believe today that only Jesus opens up the gift into a ministry. Many times I looked to man but was always left disappointed. He di open up the door for me but it was in a way that I never thought possible. It’s his way not our way.
    Bless You and your gift. richard
