A man’s gift maketh room for him, and bringeth him before great men.” Proverbs 18:16

There is a preverbal door in front of all of us during our lives; the door of destiny. God has created you with a purpose and has designed intricate details into your life.

There are gifts that God has given to you that are unique. You might be saying, “Trust me, I’m not a gifted person.” But, I would have to disagree. There is something that God has breathed into your life – it knocks on the door of your heart, reminding you of your dream year after year.

When God gives you a dream or a ministry that is far beyond your capabilities and talents, it is on purpose. He is not in heaven making mistakes, mixing you up with someone else’s plan and purpose. He has called you to greatness, just as you are.

Gifts are not given to us in full bloom; they develop over time, so it is okay if you still have to grow.

God will never give you a dream you can achieve alone because He desires for you to depend on Him every step of the way.

He wants to reveal His glory, display His provision, and operate His miracles in your life. When you see a door of destiny before you, step through it in faith and believe that God has made room for your gifting.

Prayer: God, I feel incapable to pursue the ministry that You are calling me to. I pray that You will help equip me and use me in my gifting. Show me the areas in my life that steal time away from my calling and help me make Your will a priority.
