Develop Your Gift (Written By: Joel Osteen)

Today’s Scripture:

“Do not neglect your gift…”
1 Timothy 4:14, NIV

Today’s Word:

You were created and designed for a specific purpose. God has placed gifts inside of you to equip you to fulfill your purpose. Do you know what those gifts are? What are you passionate about? What can you do better than other people? What would you choose to do if there were no obstacles? God wants you to develop and pursue the gift inside of you because your gift is a part of your destiny.

The gifts God gives aren’t just for us. He gives us gifts to help build other people. You have a specific role to play in the body of Christ. That doesn’t mean God’s going to send you to a third world country or make you preach. But, there are people all around you that only you can reach. Are you using your gifts to build the kingdom? Are you serving in your local church? Even if you are still discovering what your gifts are, you can simply take a step and volunteer. Everyone has something to give. You can give a smile, a handshake or an encouraging word. When you step out and serve others, that’s how you develop your gift and move forward in the destiny He has for you!

Prayer for Today:

Father, thank You for equipping me to fulfill my destiny. Thank You for walking with me and guiding me. Show me ways to develop the gifts You have given me so that I can be a blessing everywhere I go in Jesus’ name. Amen.

    My husband and I have had our family devotion together everyday since he was saved last year. We have read many of Joel’s books. We are an unfortunate family with financial restraint and can’t afford to purchase them. So we check them out from our library. Could you please forward me a list of title’s to Joel’s books so that we may be sure to ask for them at our library. It’s a small library so we have to ask for them to be sent in and held. Thanks so much for your help! We love Joel and couldn’t imagine not being able to read his inspiring books.
