The Trouble God Went To

Wednesday, 4 December

Ephesians 2:10: For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand, that we should walk in them. (ESV)

If I were to ask you, “Do you think that you’re anything special?” probably, you’d feel a bit embarrassed and deflect the question. But let me tell you, the rest of us, we look at you and we think you’re incredibly special. There’s a very good reason for that.

Few of us ever give too much thought to the fact that God has gone to a lot of trouble to make us who we are today.

I think sometimes we take ourselves too much for granted – or at least we take the gifts and abilities that God’s given us too much for granted. And here’s how that happens.

You live with your unique gifts and abilities 24/7. In fact they’ve always been a part of you, so they don’t feel as though they’re anything special – certainly not comparable with that super-spiritual person over there.

So I want to encourage you today to do a quick stocktake of the things that you’re really good at; the things you really enjoy doing. Write down the things that you know you can do better than just about anyone else you know.

And right there, you have a list of your God–given gifts and abilities. I know, you don’t think they’re much at all. But you see, to the rest of us – those of us who can’t do what you can do – we think they’re amazing! Here’s one of my favourite Scriptures:

Ephesians 2:10 For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand, that we should walk in them. (ESV)

Why is it a favourite? Because it tells me that you and I are handcrafted by God with a very specific purpose in mind: to do the good works that He has already prepared for us to do.

So stop comparing yourself with others … and get on with it!

That’s God’s Word. Fresh … for you … today.

Thigibh a nis le buidheachas
n a gheataibh-san a steach,
Is thigibh fòs le maladh mòr
an cùirtibh naomh a theach :
Is thugaibh dha mòr-bhuidheachas,
ainm beannaichibh gu binn.

Psalm 100: 4

"Beware of the false prophets! They come to you wearing sheep's clothing, but underneath they are hungry wolves! You will recognize them by their fruit. Can people pick grapes from thorn bushes, or figs from thistles?
Matthew 7: 15-16 Complete Jewish Bible

Dear friends, don't trust every spirit. On the contrary, test the spirits to see whether they are from God; because many false prophets have gone out into the world.1 John 4:1 Complete Jewish Bible
