His Gifts

I've often asked myself, "why is this person able to do this, and that one able to do that, but I so struggle and wonder if I'll ever be able to..."

Today while sitting in group watching a video, I looked up and glanced across the room and looked at a very dear friend. She took on a whole different look. She was radiant, a princess just beautiful as could be. I saw this vision and heard, she has a special anointing, I have great plans for her. I sat there in awe.

The Lord has given me several beautiful visions. They don't come often, but when they do, they are so vibrant and beautiful a majority of the time, only a couple of times did I receive dark visions. I knew I needed to share with her what I was given. That was a lesson learnt a while back when I was given a message and didn't share it.

After the video, we had discussion and some of the ladies, had been given Scriptures. Then prayer requests were taken and a couple of people gave me a Scripture. Then another. I was elated at the time, being armed with just the right Scriptures and filled with great hope.

Then I got home and sat in my prayer closet and pondered, why it was that there were those that are often given Scripture. Then I started to condemn myself for not having been an avid Bible reader for so long. Now I'm on track, but am so far behind from where I should be. Then it came to me. He said, "I give everyone different gifts for a reason. You have a gift of vision, they have a gift of Scripture."

I'm alright with it all now. So now when someone is so good in an area of Christianity, I'll be able to accept the fact that I lack that ability. It's by God's choice. I so love having that gift from God. The visions are amazing, and it's so wonderful to see the affect for the people that are meant to receive them, or to be able to share with many when it involves a multitude of people. What ever other gifts I've been given, I look forward to receiving.

So if you ever wonder, "Why is that person so capable of this or that, but I just can't seem to get it;" remember, it's by God's desire for you that you receive your own special gifts, and don't worry about not having what others have. We all have a special purpose, chosen by our great Heavenly Father. It doesn't make you any less of a person. We are all special in the eyes of the Lord.

One final note. I do not post every day, nor very often most the time, as I wait until I have a message I've been given to share. I could write a bunch of jibberish just to have something to write daily, but I wait until He's given me something to share. A testimony or a lesson as this is where I have been led.

I wish blessings abundant over you all.

Thanks for sharing this! I use to wonder the same thing for I am very quiet and I see all the time people shining for God in the light and I use to think why can I not do this? But God told me don't worry for you are very special too. Then He released me, not in a way I was hoping for but in a way that brings total fulfillment to who He created me to be and in a way I never ever could have imagined. He is so good! Praise His Name forever!!

We need to glorify God in the way He made us to glorify Him. We are unique and very special to Him.

Blessings Omah!

Child of God, you are so right. I'm glad you were able to experience His release as well. I too am a very quiet person, but with the grace of God, am overcoming it some! He is so good to us.
Thanks for your lovely comments,
