God created man and upgraded him from the natural to a higher level; the yardstick for this upgrade is a GIFT. 1 Corinthians 12:7 made us to understand that we can only be upgraded if we operate and activate the gift he has given us. Your door of greatness is your gift; it is unique and special. God searched the depths of heaven to acquire precious seeds called gifts, he then handed them over to you to utilize.
You are the only person in this entire world that has the level of the gift you have. The real you is the you that swims in his/her gift. Ask yourself "Why will God give me a unique gift?" Beloved, it is for you to use it. Note vividly; your gifts are not meant for you alone but the world at large. It will be selfish and cruel for you to keep it idle and not use it.
Pause a minute and think "If by divine ordination, you have been given gifts that will produce ideas of how to cure cancer or save a nation from epidemic, and you fail to utilize those gifts for reasons best known to you. Now imagine how many lives would be lost, how many destinies would be cut short; all because you failed to utilize your God-given potentials."
Ah! It will be heartless and selfish of you not to utilize your gifts. In fact, you will indirectly be a murderer and believe me; heaven has no space for such people. What is your excuse? What excuse do you have? You have been created extraordinarily, why do you choose to live ordinarily? Tell me, what is your excuse for sitting down and running life day after day and not utilizing your potentials? WHY? What is your excuse?
"It is difficult. It is not easy. The world is corrupt. There's no way of utilizing it without losing one's faith. It requires a lot"
The answer to all that is: YOU ARE LAZY. What about those who utilized and those presently utilizing their gifts? By what means are they better than you?
Listen, you have been given this life because you are capable of living it. So whatsoever excuse you have as a hindrance, you are more than able to overcome it if you decide to (James 4:6). The problem is that we exalt the abilities of our challenges, we make great the power of the opposition; so much so that we forget how powerful we have been created. God didn't send you to the world with just your gifts; he equally gave you the strength, power and grace to effectively utilize it.
Tell me, what excuse would you accept from a doctor that failed to show up to treat your loved one who was ill and eventually died because no one could treat he/her. If none then what excuse do you think you can give to justify why you failed to utilize your gifts at the expense of people's life and destiny?
CAN I SHOCK YOU? "Every moment you are not utilizing your gifts, there is at least one person who loses hope or worse, dies." Our lives are connected to so many others. God strategically placed you where you are right now so you can by the gifts he has given you, help others fulfill their destiny. The same way someone somewhere is to help you achieve yours. And it all boils
down to utilizing your gifts.
Is it easy? ABSOLUTELY NOT but it is possible. It might be difficult and might take long but if you keep at it, you will get there.
very inspiring and breath taking
