Wisdom For The Day Devotional 9 May 2023 By Bishop Mike Okonkwo: Find Your Place
TOPIC: Find Your Place (TREM Devotional 9 May 2023)
“But unto every one of us is given grace according to the measure of the gift of Christ.” – Ephesians 4:7 (KJV)
God has given every person gifts, talents, and abilities so that every person can contribute their quota to the Kingdom. What that simply means is that every person is wired for something. There is a place for you to function in the Kingdom agenda. Your responsibility is to find your place and fulfill your destiny. Remember that it is the hand of the diligent that bears rule. (Proverbs 12:24). The days of just warming the seats are over. Get involved at the group level and join a Ministry Arm of your choice. That is one way to get committed. You must be busy. I encourage you to jump on board and let us do the work together. Find your place and begin to serve, because God has given you a specific talent for a specific purpose.
I encourage you today to take a quality decision that someone must benefit from your gifting. You can start from your little corner. If you enjoy singing, start from your group meetings. If you feel inclined to administration, start helping in your group or fellowship to put structures in place. That is a good way to develop your gift, and pretty soon, what started small would snowball to the glory of God. Don’t fold your hands and think you are not important. You are important. And everyone will certainly give an account of their talent before the Giver of all talents.
The Bible tells us that God is not unrighteous to forget your service to Him. Let me assure you, therefore, that He who brought you this far will keep and sustain you.
Every day, the light will shine for you out of the darkness. You will not be small. This year will yield her increase for you. Every ground you walk upon will produce no matter the complication. You will take your portion in the land. And it will happen for you speedily.
Romans 12:6-8; 1 Corinthians 12:1-7.
