"...God said, 'I have found David son of Jesse, a man after my own heart. He will do everything I want him to do.'" Acts 13:22
Notice it said everything in that passage... What is the everything that God has placed on your heart, the dreams, the gifts, the abilities? The dreams you wake up with and go to sleep thinking about?
What are the things God has called you to do, it's deep in your heart, the thing that makes you who you are. Maybe it's playing an instrument, making films, painting, building things or maybe it's as simple as just loving and helping people. There's a seed God has planted into each and every one of us to steward and to take care of to use for his glory.
"Each of you should use whatever gift you have received to serve others, as faithful stewards of God's grace in its various forms." 1 Peter 4:10
Whatever gift you have, use that grace he's given you in whatever area to build his church and lift up the name of Jesus. If you have the gift of singing sing, if you have the gift of building build, if you have the gift of being good with kids be apart of the children's ministry, if you want to be apart of the TV team and learn to help broadcast the gospel across the planet use that desire. Use your gifts and desires in you, step out and ask to volunteer and serve with everything that God has placed on your heart.
I pray that everyday in our church that we'd be men & women after God's own heart and truly seek to do anything and everything we can with our gifts and abilities to build his church and make his name great and see his kingdom come on earth as it is in heaven. I pray that we'd have a flourishing church that fulfills the desires and gifts within people while simultaneously leading others to Jesus. You were blessed to BE a blessing!
"You’re no longer wandering exiles. This kingdom of faith is now your home country. You’re no longer strangers or outsiders. You belong here, with as much right to the name Christian as anyone. God is building a home. He’s using us all—irrespective of how we got here—in what he is building. He used the apostles and prophets for the foundation. Now he’s using you, fitting you in brick by brick, stone by stone, with Christ Jesus as the cornerstone that holds all the parts together. We see it taking shape day after day—a holy temple built by God, all of us built into it, a temple in which God is quite at home."
