“God has given each of you a gift from his great variety of spiritual gifts. Use them well to serve one another” 1Peter 4:10.
The Bible teaches that we are to desire spiritual gifts, as God uses our gifts to edify the body of Christ. In Genesis, we read of Joseph using his gifts to encourage others while in prison, and utilizing his gifts eventually leads him from the prison to the palace.
I thank you for the grace of being alive and well this morning, I thank you for the rest that has refreshed me and the gifts that you have entrusted me with. Please give your servant an obedient heart and help me to lead with wisdom–using all that you have gifted me with to bless others. I know well that in my own strength I grow weak & weary–but with you all things are possible. In Jesus’ mighty name I pray. 💜
