The gift within
Before I formed you in the womb, I knew you, before you were born I set you apart. I appointed you as a prophet to the nations.
Ex 31:6 Also I have given ability to all the skilled workers.
We were all born with a god given set of gifting and talents and we were all called with an assignment in this world.
As a child of God, pray that you will find what He has put in you and develop that!
Do not look to school to bring out the God gift in you. They are invested instead in filling your head with facts and distracting you from the things of God. At school they teach you to be competitive, however God calls us to be creative, like He is.
If you look at some successful people in life, you will see that they did not derive their success from their schooling, but by finding their purpose & passion and developing that. People like Mary Kay, who went from obscurity to one of the biggest brands in make up. People like Richard Branson, who did not even finish secondary school, but built a multi million pound business.
How do you find that gifting within? You spend time alone with God and allow him to show you. Then once you know, you will need to start to work on developing that gift and applying it. The first step in this process is to start thinking. Really thinking through the plan! Not just allowing your mind to run rampant and throw all kinds of things at you, no, actually task you mind to think through every aspect of your dream, your passion & your mission.
Prov 19:21 Many are the plans of a man's heart, but it is the Lord's purpose that prevails.
Ask God to reveal to you His amazing purpose for your life and move forward from there.
