You have a right to be blessed. The very fact that God has endowed you with ability proves He has a purpose for you. He gave you the gift, but you will have to give an account of what you did with it.
Every day is a gift from God. What you do with that day or with your talent is your gift to Him. Have you hidden your talent because someone said you didnâ€™t have it? Thatâ€™s ridiculous! You are only limited by your own creativity and concentration.
Many women have suppressed their God-given ability trying to live up to some negative stereotype; the same stereotype that God wants them to shatter. You have neglected a right that the Father gave you at great sacrifice. What a price He has paid to give you your inheritance. It cost the Father His Sonâ€™s life. It would be like a natural father working all his life to give his daughter her inheritance and then have her squander it. Or worse still, refuse to claim it because she is uncertain of herself.
Many of you are dying from apathy and boredom. You have not challenged life and life has not challenged you. You need to exercise your potential. Get your blood circulating. Good, spiritual aerobic exercise will start your heart pumping. A stimulating life can even help guard you from mischief and sin. When you are bored, Satan takes initiative and you know where that leads.
It is possible to construct an obstacle in your own mind. Do not be limited by your own tendency to settle for less. If you are not careful, you will talk yourself out of living. Speak up and say: â€œI need more life in my life.â€
Refuse to be a wallflower because you know you have the Fatherâ€™s favour. Bloom and blossom and grow in the light of the Fatherâ€™s love.
A little something from my T.D Jakesâ€™ Woman Thou Art Loosed Bible I wanted to share with you all as you make your way to or back from Church today or as you prepare for the week ahead, wherever you might be. An intelligent and promising young woman I interviewed last year told me one of her greatest fears is letting slip God-given opportunities in her life. She fears that the good Lord will hold her accountable for not making use of the blessings allocated to her; therefore, she works hard to give her best to everything she does. Likewise, T. D Jakes, in the above quote, mentions that the very fact that God has endowed us with abilities proves He has a purpose for us. We owe it to ourselves and to Him to get up and reclaim our blessings, to make a success of ourselves, to shine brighter than the stars.
Whose fault is it when you sit down and complain about things not happening in your life when you havenâ€™t tried hard enough in the first place? Is finding a scapegoat toÂ failuresÂ and misfortunes not equal to the complainantâ€™s laziness or weakness?
Remember, every day is a gift from God. What you do with your talent within that day is your gift to Him. Seven days from now, when you sit down to take stock of your week, will you be satisfied with the gifts that you have given unto the Lord?
