1 Corinthians 14:26 NLT

Well, my brothers and sisters, let’s summarize. When you meet together, one will sing, another will teach, another will tell some special revelation God has given, one will speak in tongues, and another will interpret what is said. But everything that is done must strengthen all of you.

When you read the full chapter of this scripture, the Apostle Paul was elaborating on the use of spiritual gifts and why God gave them to us. Every gift we have received from God is to be used to edify His church and bless His kingdom. God gives different gifts to different people as He sees fits. Not everyone will be a prophet or a seer. Not everyone can sing or serve. There are many anointed people who lack administration skills and can barely manage an organization or ministry and that’s OK because it is not their gifting. What we need is a discerning heart with wisdom to bring together the men and women who are gifted in different areas to build the church or ministry.

Whatever your gift is, it is solely to strengthen God’s work and not to tear down what He is building through other men and women. I pray for you that as you go through your week, you will seek God’s direction on how you can use your gifts and talents to strengthen His work on earth and especially His body. May the men and women who need your gift also find you so you can become a blessing to your generation. Let it be so and so it is in Jesus’ name. Amen!
