As I write this letter to you, there are three things you must know and believe. The three concepts are you have the power that can no longer lay dormant inside of you, you have a gift that is anxiously waiting to come forth, and you are worth so much.
I know you are asking what’s this power that you speak of, or what’s this gift that you are referring to is. How do you know my worth when at times I feel that I am not enough?
I have great news for you, and the news is the power that I speak of is in the book of Ephesians. Ephesians 3:20 “Now unto him, that is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think according to the POWER that worketh in US.” This verse tells us that God can do way beyond what we ask or think according to the POWER we have working inside of us. There is a power that lies within us that can no longer lay dormant because we can have abundant life through this power working in us.
In the book of 2 Corinthians 4:7 “But we have this treasure in earthen vessels that the excellence of the power may be of God and not of us.” This verse tells me that there is a treasure, a gift inside of us that has to manifest so that people can see that it’s not from us, but the gift that we have inside is exposed through the power of God residing inside of us. The power of God gives us the strength to do the gift, the power of God provides us with the wisdom to operate in the gift.
Also, in Proverbs 18:16 it reads, “A man’s gift maketh room for him and bringeth him before great men.” In this verse, it informs us that our gift opens doors for us and brings us in the presence of great people. What we must understand about this verse is that it never says that our jobs or our career, but our gift makes room for us. You see a gift is defined as the inherent capacity to fulfill a function that meets a need in creation.
Finally, the reason the world needs our gifts is that of what is written in Romans 8:19 “For the creation waits in eager expectation for the Children of God to be revealed.” The world is waiting for answers to their problems. The world is waiting for the Kingdom solutions to life. Your gift should always honor God the one who gave you the gift and lead others to God. Your value is in your gift, and your gift is the source of your value. I need you to believe.
Dear Heavenly Father,
We now know we have this treasure, this gift in earthen vessels that you want to manifest from within us, please show us our gift. Please give us the wisdom to see what you are showing us and enlighten the eyes of our understanding. Awaken us and let the power of God come forth in our lives because we want the abundant life that you have predestined for us. We receive your power, love, and grace and we say thank you, Jesus, in Jesus name Amen.
