My Abilities are God's Map for My Life

In review of Hebrews 13:21 it says, “May he equip you with all you need for doing his will. May he produce in you, through the power of Jesus Christ, every good thing that is pleasing to him.”

Bottom Line:
I pray that God will make you ready to obey him and that you will always be eager to do right. May Jesus help you do what pleases God. To Jesus Christ be glory forever and ever

What this means to me:
May God prepare and equip me with all I need for doing his will.  May he produce in me an eagerness to do his will and do what is right.  Through the power of Jesus Christ, I do what is pleasing to him. The glory for this belongs to Jesus Christ.  God has designed specific animals to excel in specific areas, and he doesn’t expect them to do all the other things. If I was to expect everybody to fit in the same mold, all I’ll do is end up getting frustrated, discouraged, and being failure. A duck is made to be a duck and not something else. Likewise I was made to be me. God has given me unique abilities, and he wants me to use them the way he intended.  My abilities are the map to God’s will for my life. It points the direction. When I know what I’m good at, then I can know what God wants me to do with my life.  The Bible says in Hebrews 13:21, “May he equip you with all you need for doing his will. May he produce in you, through the power of Jesus Christ, every good thing that is pleasing to him” (NLT).  God has equipped me with the ability to teach and lead.  He has also given me some talent in playing the drums.  My heart is being drawn now to mentoring others that God has put into my life. I also enjoy leading small groups. I’m an introvert by nature, so most of what I’ll do is in smaller groups and one-on-ones.  As I continue to heal and get back to normal, I’ll resume these activities.  I’ll also re-engage with the worship team.  In my work life, I will continue to lead and coach others.  I would like to take my experience and new knowledge from my degree to help companies protect themselves in the digital realm.  Overall, I sense God wanting me serve as an example and to be a mentor to help others be what God intended them to be.
