Father God created you to be a treasure, a gift to be cherished. To be a gift means that we’re blessing someone. We’re making the lives of others better. Abba-Father designed each of us, at the very moment of our conception, to be gifts for the world—sacred gifts through which he could work. He answers the prayers of others through us. He heals through the giftedness of people in the medical field. He builds homes through the giftedness of laborers. Rarely does he do anything apart from the gifts that he designed into people. God values our partnership in accomplishing his will.
Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of the heavenly lights, who does not change like shifting shadows. (James 1:17 NIV)
Our Divine Daddy enjoys sharing his gifts. And you are one of his most precious gifts!
Acknowledging that we are gifts to the world is not prideful if we also acknowledge the Giver of the gifts. Being a gift is a very humble position, because a gift is always something that is handed over to others. God is the Giver. Others are served by the gift that we are.
Day 14 on the journey includes:
- You are a gift to Jesus
- You are treasured by the Father
- God has gifted you for ministry
- Don’t underestimate your value
- See your giftedness the way the Father sees them
