Is Success Killing Your Dreams?
“A man’s gift makes room for him and brings him before great men”
Proverbs 18:16 (www.christianwalktoday.com)
How do you differentiate between your gift and your talents or skills?
Gift - 1) something you have a true passion for and could do 24/7 with or without reward or recognition. 2) the thought of never doing “this” makes you sad/depressed and you can’t imagine “this” not being a part of your life.
Talent - 1) you do this because you can 2) you have to be rewarded/compensated/recognized for it 3) if you do it, cool. If you don’t, you wouldn’t miss it.
Your talents are an illusion and can create a perception of truth. Also, your talents can be “dated”. You may possess a skill set that is in demand today and you can not give it away tomorrow. But your gift flows from you and through you effortlessly and never dries up, fade away, runs out, or ends. (”For the gifts and the calling of GOD are irrevocable“) Romans 11:29 (NKJV)
It’s time for all of us to LIVE and not just exist. Everything you need is already in you. (”You are already full! You are already rich!…“) 1 Corinthians 4:8 (NKJV)
To be in a position to “receive” what your gift is you must have the faith to believe GOD has a plan for your life. Then take the time to identify what would you do for free, would never get tired of doing, and it brings you joy, even when it comes with struggles and challenges.
To live in your gift, you must trust and believe that GOD will provide. You have to know that you will receive the provisions you need and the wisdom to make adjustments in your life to accommodate the changes in your career, your time, your friends, and/or your location to put you in a position to DO what you love and enjoy your life to the fullest. (”You will succeed in whatever you choose to do, and light will shine on the road ahead of you“) Job 22:28 (New Living Translation). Visit www.christianwalktoday.com to view part 1 of this message.
