Why You Should Never Hide The Gifts God Has Given You

One of the wonderful things about God is how He’s blessed each of us with unique gifts to use for His glory.

In my free time, I’ve been watching a documentary about the life of a very famous and successful person. His name and many successes are not as important as his journey. Through countless seasons in his life, he took risks based on his faith. He put his trust in God and others were blessed as a result.

Along the way, many things in his life weren’t perfect. Nobody has a perfect life. Any one of the “risks” he took could have failed and delayed his mission.  But, he had faith!

God can bless us in many ways. For some, that may mean a single passion, one overriding interest. For others, this could mean many skills and talents or even multiple career paths. Jesus taught that we must not hide the abilities and resources God gives us, but develop those gifts (Matthew 5:14-16).

So have faith!

Don’t let fear hold you back from taking a risk and following God’s calling in your life.

Be open to His leading. Don’t limit His work. Be ready to walk through whatever doors He opens for you. Let your light shine!

    I thank you for your blog. I have a unique gift and I find that others may be judging me or just feeling like I need to coil up. I just get so excited about God and I love Him so much. Maybe others don’t know that I get excited about God and take it wrong and maybe think I’m boasting but I’m not. I come from an abusive life where I was neglected and abused my whole childhood and I’m 59 now, I’ve been saved for 18 years now and God has been so good to me. My whole life I’ve been invisible and I’m not invisible anymore to the LIVING GOD! Thank you so much.
