Gifts And Graces

posted in: Daily Stream | 0

Ephesians 4:7 (NET) But to each one of us grace was given according to the measure of the gift of Christ.

After Mrs. McClusky became friends with Franka, she realized that Franka had a spiritual gift she didn’t know how to handle properly. Franka had very great prophetic gifts and she could see things concerning people very accurately through her dreams and visions of the night. Because Mrs. McClusky was a teacher of the word, she could help Franka understand her spiritual gift and guide her to use it profitably for God’s house.

Today’s Bible verse reveals that God gives us grace according to the gift we have received. Because Franka had the gift of prophecy, she had the ability to pray for really long hours with fasting, but Mrs. McClusky who had the gift to teach had the ability to spend hours upon hours studying the word and learning. Even though Mrs. Mcclusky spent a lot of time praying and sometimes fasting too, she knew Franka had extra grace in that area, and she did not try to be like Franka. If we do not understand that we have grace according to the gift we have received, we might spend our time and resources trying to be something that we have not been given the ability to become.

Because of Mrs. McClusky’s gift, Franka was more effective and accurate in the administration of her gift. And because of Franka’s gift, Mrs. McClusky was saved from making a decision that would have cost her her business. They both could excel in their gifts and be beneficial to one another because they understood the gifts they had and their attendant graces or abilities.

Go into today trusting the Lord to help you identify the gift you have received and the attendant grace or ability God has given you to help you excel in it.

Prayer: Heavenly Father, please help me walk in your perfect will. Help me identify my area of grace and excel in it, in Jesus’ name. Amen.
