Time to Contribute
Trust God from the bottom of your heart; don’t try to figure out everything on your own. Listen for God’s voice in everything you do, everywhere you go; he’s the one who will keep you on track. Proverbs 3:6 Message Bible
You say, “How do I know what I’m supposed to contribute?” Trust God to speak to you through the use of these questions.
What are the things that I care about most? — What’s my natural skill set? — Where do I get results versus failure? — What subjects do I love to talk about? — Where do I like to invest my physical energy? — In what situation do I feel myself getting most competitive?
Being used by God is the most fulfilling thing man can experience. He has created us all with a different skill set; he has given us all a unique job to do. You are God’s unique creation placed in a world of need. It is interesting to note that Jesus’s natural physical skill set was a carpenter. But his spiritual skill set was centered on relationship.
Remember this — the more you concentrate on your relationship with God as a perfect father with perfect love for you, the more confidence, poise and ability you will have at understanding what you are here for. That question will dwindle and you will discover naturally the skill set he has given you. He will direct your paths. You are now a Kingdom man, you have been given the mind of Christ. Man up and believe it, and remember no risk, no faith.
Father, I trust your promise, you are directing my paths.
