Neglect Not The Gifts

paint image The other night I had a dream that I went into a hospital room where there was a lady who had just had a baby.  The lady was lying in the hospital bed unaware that the nurse placed her baby on the table next to the bed.  I noticed that the baby’s knees were bent up and that he was about to fall off the table so I reached out and caught him and prevented him from falling.  He was a very happy and healthy baby and I knew that he was a boy because he was wearing blue which is symbolic for revelation.  When I woke up the Lord gave me the interpretation of this dream.  Many people are neglecting the spiritual gifts that have been given to them.  They are ignoring what the Lord has placed in their lives and are not appreciative of the precious gifts that have been provided for them.

The Lord says:  I have created each one of you uniquely and have given each of you gifts.  Your gifts are unique and your calling is unique, just as your lifestyle is unique.  Everything in your life has been created and designed for whom I have called you to be. Your personality, your character and your physical appearance is all engrafted in to what you were created for.  Do not try to impersonate another man or women’s ways or desire their gifts, but accept who you are and I will release to you all that I have made available for you.  Each one of you have been created for a particular purpose and plan.  Do not neglect the gift that I have provided for you.  Attend to what I have released to you and receive these valuable and precious gifts.

As you come before Me, lay down your preconceived ideas and I will reveal My plans for you. Although you feel as though things in your life have been delayed, My plans and calling on your life have not been cancelled nor have they been aborted.  Be led by My Spirit and awaken to My plans and purposes.  The sooner you allow Me to take you higher, your destination of victory will be imminent.  My gifts and callings are irrevocable.  They are exclusively designed for you.  Do not allow the enemy to tell you that you have been disqualified because of something that you have done.  Leave your past and present failures, mistakes and disappointments behind you, turn around and allow Me to begin anew in your life.  As you allow Me to lead, I will bring forth those precious gifts that are on the inside of you to advance My kingdom in this world says the Lord.

“A man’s gift makes room for him, and brings him before great men”  Proverbs 18:16.

14 “For the kingdom of heaven is like a man traveling to a far country, who called his own servants and delivered his goods to them.  15 And to one he gave five talents, to another two, and to another one, to each according to his own ability; and immediately he went on a journey.  16 Then he who had received the five talents went and traded with them, and made another five talents.  17 And likewise he who had received two gained two more also.  18 But he who had received one went and dug in the ground, and hid his lord’s money. 19 After a long time the lord of those servants came and settled accounts with them. 20 “So he who had received five talents came and brought five other talents, saying, ‘Lord, you delivered to me five talents; look, I have gained five more talents besides them.’  21 His lord said to him, ‘Well done, good and faithful servant; you were faithful over a few things, I will make you ruler over many things.  Enter into the joy of your lord.’ 22 He also who had received two talents came and said, ‘Lord, you delivered to me two talents; look, I have gained two more talents besides them.’  23 His lord said to him, ‘Well done, good and faithful servant; you have been faithful over a few things, I will make you ruler over many things. Enter into the joy of your lord.’ 24 “Then he who had received the one talent came and said, ‘Lord, I knew you to be a hard man, reaping where you have not sown, and gathering where you have not scattered seed.  25 And I was afraid, and went and hid your talent in the ground. Look, there you have what is yours.’ 26 “But his lord answered and said to him, ‘You wicked and lazy servant, you knew that I reap where I have not sown, and gather where I have not scattered seed.  27 So you ought to have deposited my money with the bankers, and at my coming I would have received back my own with interest.  28 Therefore take the talent from him, and give it to him who has ten talents. 29 ‘For to everyone who has, more will be given, and he will have abundance; but from him who does not have, even what he has will be taken away”   Matthew 25: 14- 29.

“For the gifts and the calling of God are irrevocable”  Romans 11: 29.

“Do not neglect the gift that is in you, which was given to you by prophecy with the laying on of the hands of the eldership”   1 Timothy 4:14.
