I was reading a book and i took note of a statement which said, ”to find yourself, you need to discover your gifts and callings”.
What do i mean by gifts and callings?
Every individual on this earth has been created and called by God for a specific purpose. Some have been called to be pastors, Engineers, Entrepreneurs, Presidents, governors, world leaders, CEOs, MDs, e.t.c. This is called calling of God to man.
Man’s gift from God is what God has deposited inside of you. It can be singing, dancing, praying for someone in terms of healing, discernment of the spirit, e.t.c. This is God’s gift to man.
All of these gifts and calling of God to man is to improve humanity, touch lives and to make the world a better place.
Romans 11: 29, “The gifts and callings of God are without repentance”. This simply means the gifts and callings of God cannot be withdrawn. If you obey or not, it cannot be changed. Every individual has a specific and unique purpose assigned to them by God.
In Genesis 1:28, “God said, Be fruitful and multiply, replenish the earth, have dominion over the earth”. What God meant here was i have given you gifts, talents. I have called you to make a positive change in the world.
You might ask yourself, ‘How do i discover my gift and calling?’. There are ways through which you can know God’s purpose for you.
1. You can ask God and he will tell you. Phillipians 4:6.
2. Through His word. Ps 109:105, Matt 24:35.
3. Your passion and vision. Habbakuk 2:2-3. What do you love doing?. How does it positively affect lives around you?. You should ask yourself these questions.
