Open to the Possibilities
God has blessed us with gifts and talents, but the decision is ours whether or not we will use those talents for the work of the Lord. If we decide to use them, then we are free also to choose how best to serve Him. Are we open to the possibilities before us? Are we willing to explore and grow? We should be, because we are redeemed people who depend on the Holy Spirit daily to empower us to use our God-given talents for God’s kingdom. God created and blessed us so that we may make a difference in our churches, communities, and the world. God will always equip us for the tasks He gives us to do. With His help we will find ways our talents can glorify Him, and we will each hear God’s words, “Well done, good and faithful servant!” (Matthew 25:21).
Prayer: Dear Lord, You are the source of my time and talents. Help me to use my blessings in ways that help those in need and extend Your kingdom. In Jesus’ name I pray. Amen.
Blessings on your journey as a steward!
