Praise the Name of Jesus Messieh.
Today the Lord has placed on my heart a scripture that has spoken to me concerning my life and the lives of others who have defied the odds that were against them to be lifted up by the Lord and do the will of God in their lives. These men and women found that God’s Destiny for our life, which is to say His will will bring us to that finished product He intends for us to become. When He sees you and me he doesn’t see us as we are though He can see all things. When He sees us He sees us as the finished product He has predetermined us to be. Can we frustrate God’s Will and miss out on the blessings of the Lord? Yes. Can we start all over again?Yes.
You may say Bro. Josh I feel called to preach but I really dont know anyone or my Pastor wont acknowledge my calling or I feel so far from the Lord but have a burning desire to do a work for God. God has given me a gift and talent and I want to use it for God but just don’t know what to do.
The bible declares in (Proverbs 18:16) A man’s gift maketh room for him, and bringeth him before great men.The word gift here means a present and we know the scriptures teach us that every gift comes from God. (James 1:17) Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and cometh down from the Father of lights, with whom is no variableness, neither shadow of turning. God gives us gifts and talents that will be a blessing to His body and the lost and God is no respector of persons and he will make room for your gift, your talent and your ministry just as he has done in the past.
The bible says God will cause your gift to make room for you meaning He will take the things He has imparted into your spirit man, that seed that when it is full grown will cause you to blossom and become the man or woman Jesus has destined you to be and cause it to make room for you in the work of the Kingdom. The scripture also goes on to say that it will bring you before great men. The word great here can mean a large number or also men of importance and men established and distinguished in heir work for God. If you truly have a gift God will make room for that gift but will before that send you to a great Man of God who will help you cultivate your gift.
So many of us let the hardships of serving God stray us from allowing our gift to make room for us and we attempt to twist God’s arm and make Him immediately manifest our gifts and talents to the world without us every being proven and without us every going through the tests of life in general that help mold us into the men and women God is calling us to be. Moses although caled of God to deliver the children of Israel out of bondage, killed an Egyptian and attempted to execute the feelings in his heart before the gift of God could make room for him and he ended up on the back side of a dessert for 40 years before He heard from God.
A man’s gift will make room for Him. Jospeh told the dream to his brothers about the Sun and the Moon and the 11 stars bowing before him and this was God’s Destiny for Joseph to be a ruler over his brethern and to ultimately save the world during famine. He ended up in a pit sold to the Midianites as a slave and ended up the slave to Potiphor. His was exalted only to be placed in jail again then to rise out of obscurity and interpret the Pharoh’s dream and be made as great as Pharoh except for in His throne. Joseph lead the world through 7 good years and 7 years of famine and all the people were kept alive by this Man of God whose gift made room for him.
Be patient for your work in God. Jesus will make room for your gift. Do you feel like leaving your church and Pastor and roaming about seeking to do the will of God? Friend you will roam and roam and never make your self what God and God alone can make you. He has a destiny for your life and wants to fulfil it but you must be obedient and allow Him to use the gift He has imparted to you to make room for you.
It has taken nearly 18 years in fact the whole history of my ministry to figure this out. Testimony has come from the test I have gone through. Just as the Apostle Peter was jailed and place among four quarentines of soldiers it was not his destiny to die there. The prayer meeting the church had didn’t set Peter free but God’s destiny was revealed by Jesus when he said when your old you will be lead where you dont want to go.
If you will follow Jesus faithfully and help your Pastor young preacher and work in your church saint God will allow your gift to make room for itself and bring you into the council of great and Godly men. This church or ministry you are working with ,ay not be your final destination realize Jesus has you here and the Man of God is placed in your life to help cultivate and grow your gift so God can make your life exactually what He designed for it to be.
This study will be continued in the next few days.
In Jesus Name,
Bro. Josh Sparks.
