“For the gifts and the calling of God are irrevocable” (Romans 11:29, NKJV).
As children of God, it is important that we understand and recognize that God has a specific calling and plan for our lives. We were not put here by chance and we should not be aimlessly going through life. God has given each of us spiritual gifts and callings to be used in His Kingdom here on earth. He does not take them away, even if we have never done anything with them or when we fail from time to time. These gifts and callings are ours to be used for they are God’s investment into our personal lives.
God calls us to put our faith and trust in Him, allowing Him to develop what He has given us. Our responsibility is to walk out our faith daily so that He may fulfill His purpose in our lives.
What are your gifts and callings? For some the question is easily answered, for others, the answer is not as clear. I encourage you to prayerfully consider what God’s gifts and callings are in your life. If you are someone who has never accepted Jesus Christ as your Savior, then He has the gift of eternal life waiting for you. If you have accepted Christ as your Savior, then your spiritual gifts and callings are to be used to touch and see other’s lives changed. Make a fresh commitment to know and use the gifts God has given you.
