A Practical Gift

“As each has received a gift, use it to serve one another, as good stewards of God’s varied grace.” - 1 Peter 4:10

Long before you knew God, He knew you. He created you. But even before He created you, He knew what you would become. He also knew the gifts you would possess. Why did He know that? Because He gave them to you!
 
God is the one who has gifted you with spiritual gifts that He wants you to use for His glory. God’s gifts are PERSONAL, they are PURPOSEFUL, and they are also PRACTICAL. God doesn’t give us gifts that don’t make sense for us to use. The gifts He gives are specific to what He knows we will need.

1 Peter 4:10 says, “As each has received a gift, use it to serve one another, as good stewards of God’s varied grace.”
 
Before you ever took your first breath, God knew who you were going to be. He knew what you would look like, what your personality would be like, and what spiritual gifts you would have.

He also knew the life experiences you would go through. He knew the trials and challenges you would face. He knew the people you would come in contact with. That is why He has given you practical gifts. He doesn’t give the gift of leadership to someone who is going to be at the bottom of the totem pole their whole lives.
 
What God gave you, He gave you to use. Don’t waste your gift. He has given you all the resources you need to accomplish His will. He is a provider. Whatever you need, He will provide every step of the way. He has given you a gift to use for His glory.

His gift is personal. His gift is purposeful. And His gift is practical. Are you using the gift God has given you?
