“But in a great house there are not only vessels of gold and of silver, but also of wood and of earth; some to honor, and some to dishonor. If a Man (You) therefore purge himself from these, he shall be a vessel unto honor, sanctified, and meet for the Master’s (Our Heavenly Fathers’) use, and prepared unto every good work.” 2Timothy 2:20-21
Within us all lie many gifts, gifts that are more valuable than silver and gold. Your gifts can be used to inspire or destroy. God does not want an ordinary life for you, He urges you to purge yourself from the works of the flesh so that He may use you and your gifts to do great things for Him. For God says in Jeremiah 29:11, “For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.” Note that prosperity is defined as “the state of flourishing, thriving, success or good fortune” and though it is often associated with financial wealth it is not limited to wealth, it includes all areas of your life, your family, your work, your happiness, your health. God wants to prosper you in every area of your life. God not only wants to bless you but He wants you to be a blessing.
You can use your gifts today to be a blessing. God has dropped a family member, a friend, a co-worker, or perhaps that stranger you pass on the street everyday in your spirit and in your path today. Do not pass up this opportunity to be a blessing and to be the vessel that inspires that individual.
I pray in Jesus name that not only you recognize the great gifts that lie within but that you use them to be a mighty vessel for God. I encourage you to be a vessel for God not just today but every day so that when others see you they will know that the Kingdom of God does exist and that He lives in you. Amen.
