FRIDAY APRIL 27
Activity: Do something you are good at.
Oils: Joy, Highest Potential, Magnify Your Purpose, or any you are drawn to.
Why Celebrate Your Talents?
Maybe you don’t see yourself as worth much. Perhaps the thought of an oil called Magnify Your Purpose or Highest Potential is laughable (I used to think so). Maybe your view of yourself is colored by the past. Maybe you see yourself as hopeless and helpless. Fearful and overwhelmed. Insecure and ashamed.
Can I tell you the truth, friend? That is not what God sees.
When God looks at you, he doesn’t see YOUR worth – he sees HIS WORTH.
And, before you think that’s the least encouraging thing you’ve read all day, hear me out.
God’s holiness is beyond our reach. Scripture says we have all sinned and fallen short of his glory. We were destined to destruction – literally NO hope of rescue based our own merit.
We need a Rescuer: Jesus.
He is the Way, the Truth, the Life and we cannot come to God the Father without Him. How glorious to have his covering! How abundant his mercy, making a way for us to be with him forever.
When you trust Christ for salvation, you are covered by his sacrifice and THAT is what God sees.
Not the hopeless/helpless/fearful/overwhelmed/insecure/ashamed hot mess that you are without him. God sees the worth of his own Son and bestows upon you the Holy Spirit. We are transformed by the Spirit of God – totally remade in his might.
THIS is why we can celebrate our talents. God gave them to us for the furtherance of his kingdom. He gives us power, love, and self-discipline.
EVERYONE has a talent, do you know what yours is? This quiz is a fun way to find out – just don’t get lost in the rabbit hole of “recommend” quizzes that come afterwards 😂
What Does Scripture Say?
2 Timothy 1:7 – For the Spirit God gave us does not make us timid, but gives us power, love and self-discipline.

What Will You Do?
Declare the truth. Your gifts and talents are from the Lord. You power, your love, your discipline, all of it, those are the result of the Spirit of God that rests on you.
Do something brave today. Showcase who you really are.
Though it may seem to you that you have little to offer and everyone else is better than you at life, you have the power to silence those fears and walk in victory.
