Though God has blessed all of us with talents, we don’t always feel like we know what to do with
these gifts.

Here are 5 things to remember that will boost your confidence in what the Holy Spirit has already
implanted within you.

It is Him working through you. Philippians 2:13 says, “For it is God who works in you to will
and act in order to fulfill his good purpose.” I love this verse because it is a much-needed
reminder in times of doubt that, first of all, your gift does not come from you. It comes from
God working through you. He is the giver of not only the dream, but the desire to fulfill it. The
same one who gave you the vision, will give you the drive to see it through and also, the
ability to carry it out.

It is not your adequacy, but His sufficiency that matters. We often quote Philippians
4:13 (NKJV)- “I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.” it’s a powerful scripture,
but the question is, do you believe it? You must truly have faith that it is indeed the Lord
working through your talents and members to fulfill His purposes. Put your gifts to use
knowing that where you are deficient, God is sufficient. When you feel inadequate, or as
though you don’t have the power to do anything, that’s understandable. We all feel that way
sometimes. Thankfully, you nor I is expected to rely on ourselves. What a load off! The Lord
is our strength. He has given us all we need to do what He has asked of us.
