“Yours To Keep” by Kirk Hunt
For the gifts and calling of God are without repentance.
Romans 11:29 KJV
Your talents are yours. Your calling is permanent. They are gifts from God. Did you say “thank you”?
Yes, I know Romans 11 is about the favored status of the Jews. That does not change the truth of God’s giving. God gives as He chooses. He has already given to you.
Your gifts speak loudly of what He thinks of you. Your calling is unique to you, and you alone. What do you say to Him in return?
What you have is yours to keep. That’s not the question. What are you going to do with them? What is your answer?
Despite what He has given, it will take hard work and persistence to make something of them. Doing nothing with what He has given is wasteful and insulting. Please, do not be that man or woman.
Launching out requires faith and courage. Becoming first-class always demands a price. Getting off the couch and into the deep waters is a great way of saying thank you.
You can choose to squander what He has given. You can choose to make use of what He has provided. I pray your answer involves using the talents you already own.
Think: God has giving me gifts and a calling.
Pray: “Father-God, help me to operate in what You have given me.”
