GOD’S GIFT FOR US TO GIVE!
2 Timothy 1:9 – Devotional
2 Timothy 1:9
“For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.”
Why am I here? What is the purpose of my existence? Has God given me a reason for being? Do I have an impact on the lives of those around me? Have I seen God at work in the lives of those around me because I was used by the Lord?
These are just a few of the questions we may ask ourselves to determine if and what God’s purpose is for each of us. I have even counseled people who felt that they had no spiritual purpose in life. Others had gifts and talents, but they had nothing to give and so they left the work of the Lord to others.
I once passed a church and saw a man I knew mowing the lawn. When I asked him if the church hired him to mow the lawn, he informed me that they had no idea he was doing it. He just saw a need and performed it. I discovered that there were a number of elderly people that he helped out. It was his purpose for those in need.
It may not be a ministry such as preaching or teaching that is your purpose in serving the Lord. When the Holy Spirit opens your eyes to some need, no matter how insignificant it may seem, go for it! Your purpose might seem unimportant to you, but obeying the Lord is vital to being a faithful servant.
Blessings dear hearts walk with God today and become a blessing!
