Use your gift to glorify God!

"Each one should use whatever gift he has received to serve others, faithfully administering God's grace in its various forms." 1 Peter 4:10 (NIV)

My spirit is delighted to witness the grace of God at work in the life of people. What sparks a delight in your spirit? Have you identified your gift so that it may be offered to serve others and glorify God?

If not,

1) Open your heart in prayer to God for an answer regarding your unique gift.

2) Seek scriptures in God's word that align with your God given gift to confess aloud each day.

3) Then, offer and accept opportunities to use your gift to bless others around you and glorify God.

I agree with LeAnn Rice at Proverbs 31 Ministries that God calls each of us to use the gifts that He has given us to glorify Him. So my heart is open to the limitless opportunities that God may present to me as He shapes my purpose in writing, speaking and mentoring women to pursue their God-inspired dreams.

Let's explore the gifts of women throughout the bible this week and the path that led them to glorify God.

Give a Gift

"The Lord said to Moses, "Tell the Israelites to bring me gifts. Receive for me the gifts each person wants to give......." Exodus 25:1-26:37

My new book will be published in May 2010, and I am excited to present it as a gift to honor, praise and glorify Jesus Christ. I simply expressed to God my desire to glorify Him, soon afterwards the Holy Spirit impressed upon my heart the story of the "Widow's Oil" (2 Kings 4).

In the story the prophet, Elisha said, "I wonder how I can be of help. Tell me, what do you have in your house?" "Nothing," she said. "Well, I do have a little oil."

In the midst of reflecting upon the widow, I asked myself, "What do I have in my house?" My answer was a pen, paper, a computer and our story. "Lord are you telling me to write," I asked? The answer was evident.

I began to trust the Lord by FAITH to birth Bringing Forth VIRTUE. This process led me to diligently exercise my faith to develop virtue; and to virtue the knowledge of godly love. (2 Peter 1:5) I truly realized that the virtuous life is acheived through faith in Jesus Christ.

Are you diligent in your faith? Live the mature, spiritual life daily and give gifts to God!
