THE LINK BETWEEN PURPOSE AND YOUR GIFT



 “I wish that all men were as I am. But each man has his own gift; one has this gift, another has that.” 1 Corinthians 7:7

The gift of a man is his most valuable possession. Some people refer to it as talent. It is your gifts, especially when developed that attract people to you and make you relevant. Scripture says that the gift of a man makes way for him.
“A gift opens the way for the giver and ushers him into the presence
of the great” Proverbs 18:16.

There cannot be fulfillment of purpose without your gifts.

A gift is not the same as skill. A skill is the ability to do something well, this usually comes by practice or learning from others but a gift is a natural ability to do something well.

I’ll like you to look within you, you know those things you can naturally do well, they are deposits to aid you fulfill purpose.

When I was a child, my primary school teacher usually cautioned me for talking too much in class. I always had something to say whenever anything was happening in class. For me speaking was something I would naturally do anytime, anywhere. Today I am a public speaker. “The  gift” of constructively airing my view is paying off.

God had to put that gift of speaking with people in me, because his purpose for me requires that I speak with people. I don’t struggle to get into a conversation with people. If you ask me, that’s a gift because not everyone can. God gave me that ability because he knows I would need it to fulfill purpose.

Most of the time, the gifts of a man are pointers to what God intends to do with him. You probably have seen a little child who picks up a spoon and uses it as a microphone. While she sings, she arranges her teddy bears on the couch and acts like she’s directing them in a worship service. Most children with such ability grow up to be music ministers. God uses the gift for his purpose and
to his glory.

Moses was gifted to help people. He helped the daughters of the priest of Midian to get water for their father’s flock.

“Now a priest of Midian had seven daughters, as they came to draw water and fill the troughs to water their father’s flock. Some shepherds came along and drove them away, but Moses got up and came to their rescue and watered their flock”. Exodus 2:16-17.

He saved them from the unfair treatment of the other shepherds.What kind of a man would offer help to strangers if he hadn’t got the gift (natural ability) to do so?
Another time, he tried to help an Israelite who was in a fight with
an Egyptian.

“One day after Moses had grown up he went out to where his own people were and watched them at their hard labor. He saw an Egyptian beating a Hebrew, one of his own people. Glancing this way and that without seeing no one, he killed the Egyptian and hid him in the sand” Exodus 2:11-12.

That’s the kind of scenario my people, Nigerians would say “Who send you message”? His gift (of helps) was at work. We saw Moses used as a deliverer (God’s Purpose) for Israel. Your purpose can be traced by observing your gifts. However, the Holy Spirit would clearly state God’s purpose for you.

Gifts are natural abilities given to us by God. What are some of the gifts you have got?

In what ways do you presently use these gifts in fulfilling God’s purpose for your life?

WHY DO “LOOSE” GIRLS MARRY FASTER?

“If this life has anything to gain at all, I’ll count it lost if I can’t hear you feel you, cause I need you…” rang my amazing ringtone by Lecrae. I picked up the sleek darling to see who misses me. It was this pretty friend of mine.
Ada (Not real name) and I met at the University of Nigeria, Nsukka in our first year. We had a lot in common and she was just my type (whatever that means) LOL. Anyway, I was (and still am) literally and figuratively in love with God and I noticed her heart was committed to God and His standards too.
Well, we graduated four years later and you know how life happens. We haven’t really kept in touch for a while. I heard sometime back that she was engaged and I called to say congratulations.  We talked about how life had been since after school and how we both are still fervently loving and serving the Lord. She said her wedding was three months away and I told her I definitely needed the aso-ebi (A uniform material sold to people who wish to attend an event).

HOW TO AWAKEN YOUR PROPHETIC ABILITY

If you are female and sense prophetic gifts on your life?
Here is a bible based, Christ Centered institution to help you develop and effectively use your prophetic gifts.
In simple terms, Prophecy can be defined as hearing the voice of God and speaking what He says. 
This gift is basically experienced in two ways. Auditory- Where  the one receiving the message hears words, which they then repeat or release  to those to whom one is sent.

Visual- This is referred to as The SEER gifting. Here, the receiver sees a message through some type of picture, which they then release or speak about as led.
These pictures are either received while awake by means of visions, while asleep through dreams or while half awake in trances.
Most prophetic people will experience both aspects at various times, but they tend to have one that is more dominant or frequent.
Can you relate with any of the above?

When I was younger, I had a wish. I wished that I could move from street to street selling to anyone who cared to buy.
I admired people who moved about carrying their wares on their heads because I felt they had the privilege of sightseeing and freedom of movement. 
The only chance I got to see places was when we were in the car on our way to church or school. 
The other times were when we occasionally visited Amusement Park or stopped by the then famous Mr. Biggs for lunch. This was in the 90’s. I soon got bored from seeing the same routes and sights.

I wished for more sightseeing opportunities and freedom of movement. I thought the only way I could get those was to be like the other children or adults who hawked their wares.
One day, my wish came to be! 
My mum came across bananas sold unbelievably cheap. She bought a lot and decided to sell some of…
