Don’t Focus On Your Weaknesses

Something to remember as we begin a New Year. God has equipped each one of us with specific gifts and talents. It’s up to you to not only identify those gifts, but to be disciplined enough to develop those gifts. You have to learn to stay in your strength zone. What are you naturally good at? What do you enjoy doing? Take the time to identify your strengths and weaknesses, and as the Scripture says, give yourself to your gifts.

In other words, don’t spend all your time trying to improve your weaknesses. Don’t waste valuable days pursuing things that are outside of your main gifting. Focus on your strengths.

There is something that you’re good at naturally, something you can do that comes easy to you.

Today, step out into your area of gifting. Are you good with people? Are you good with your hands? Do you have a great voice? Find ways to develop those gifts. Know that your gifts and talents are a part of your divine destiny. If you’ll be comfortable with who God made you to be and thank Him for your unique gifting, you’ll not only enjoy your life more, but you’ll be ready to receive the abundant blessing God has in store for you!

“Do not neglect your gift…”

(1 Timothy 4:14, NIV)

Pray With Me

Yahweh, thank You for equipping me with everything I need to be successful this year. Father, I ask that You show me how to develop the gifts within me for Your glory and for my destiny. God improve my weaknesses and develop my strengths in Christ’ name. Amen.
