TRY AND USE THEM, The Seeds Of Greatness!

Everyone on earth was created with seeds of greatness within. The beauty about these seeds of greatness is that they cannot be revoked that is; they are there to forever stay in our lives though the onus is upon us to share them with the world or not after discovery. It is therefore our duty to discover them and once discovered, no one can dispute the energy they add into our life as we pursue to fulfill God’s purpose for our lives in our generation.

These seeds once discovered also help us in identifying our individual purposes sometimes, a journey that some people dread thinking it is a journey into the unknown. The good news is that; God our creator surrounded us with various indicators of our purpose here on earth and these seeds of greatness are one of them. I choose to call these seeds of greatness gifts!

The word “Gifts” is at least a familiar one to each of us. It is commonly used during festivals and celebrations to express different positive emotions. At least each of you has received a gift once in their life time so far, well if you think you have not received any gift; allow me take the honors of letting you know that even the air that you breath is a gift from God. This therefore implies that we should live our lives celebrating every day because the thought of being alive is also a gift in itself, wow!

In my own opinion,

gifts are things (both tangible and non-tangible) given to another out of love with a sole purpose of making the receiver’s life better in all ways.

And once they are given, they ought to be received by the person who has been gifted. Gifts are not gifts until they are received. Some gifts come wrapped while others do not but all are gifts and they ought to be received and unwrapped and put to use accordingly.

Focusing on the gifts within given to you by God, I want to let you know that each of you has at least a God given gift. God expects you to discover the gift/s within you, fan them into flame and share or serve them with or to the world basing on the truth that everything God gives is for the benefit of all.

Sometimes you find yourselves doing things excellently and being applauded by other people and you do not know why, most cases it is the gift that God created you with that is being manifested.

Just like Paul charged Timothy to stir up the gift of God which was in him through the laying on of hands as paraphrased from 2Timothy 1:6, I encourage you to do the same!

God created some of us with gifts of words of wisdom, knowledge, faith, healing, working of miracles, prophecy, discerning spirits, tongues or interpretation of tongues among others as paraphrased from 1 Corinthians 12:8-10. All these gifts are given by the same God accordingly to each of you for the world to be a better place when everyone serves their gifts out of love.

Have you ever imagined a world where everyone is faithfully serving their gifts? Yes, I personally have imagined so and to me I pictured a world of peace call it heaven on earth where human beings are fully exercising their dominion on earth as instructed by God.For example, I am convinced that organizational goals would be easily achieved if the CEO did his work, the receptionist did his, the manager fully served his role, the sales executive, marketer, the driver, customer among all others played their roles fully. What a better world it could be!

Therefore, let us discover the various gifts we have within and serve them to the world faithfully with love. This is something I believe gets God smiling!

Let us create the world we desire to live in by serving our gifts!!!
