God always gives us any gift or talent for the benefit of others. His blessings in our lives are not so that we can just hoard them to ourselves but so that we can pour them out to others. He never created us closed up, but open so that as stuff comes from him, it can go out into the world around us. We are meant to be a blessing wherever we go.
1 Corinthians 13:7 ” A spiritual gift is given to each of us as a means of helping the entire church.”
God always deals with us first. He strengthens us so that we can strengthen others. 2 Corinthians 1:4 “He comforts us in all our troubles so that we can comfort others. When others are troubled, we will be able to give them the same comfort God has given us.” God heals us and breaks off crazy cycles in our lives so that we can be ready to be used by Him to reach out to a hurting world. So many people out there need God’s help but they don’t see how God can help them. They don’t understand that His love for them caused him to give his only Son, Jesus for them. They don’t know how to reach out to God and receive His love and help because they have messed up mindsets about God.
Being prepared by God to reach out to the world around us means changing our mindsets and being transformed by His word. We have to be able to see things as God sees them and deal with them according to His way. God has a great future for us and we must be willing to embrace it through utilizing our talents and gifts.
