(05/05/2000) in line with His workmanship
|hello prayer warriors,
1. prayer note: in line with His workmanship
For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus
unto good works, which God hath before ordained that
we should walk in them.
Praise God that He had a great plan for us when we
were formed by His hands while we are in our mother's
womb. We are His workmanship.
So, when He speaks to us, many times it is in line
with His gifts and His talents that He has given us
throughout time, or how He has shaped us through our
Romans 12:6 We have different gifts, according to the
grace given us. If a man's gift is prophesying, let
him use it in proportion to his faith.
1 Timothy 4:14-15 Do not neglect your gift, which was
given you through a prophetic message when the body of
elders laid their hands on you. 15 Be diligent in
these matters; give yourself wholly to them, so that
everyone may see your progress.
As God shapes us, He tells us and He shows us what He
is doing in our lives. I remember that I liked music
instantly when I first heard the musical organ being
played by my cousin sister. My father saw my interest
and he bought me one for me without telling me. After
that I had lessons for a while and played. One day, I
remember sitting behind someone playing the piano and
wishing that I could play like that person. I thought
I heard God's rhema word telling me that I will. My
heart leapt for a while.
I'm not playing the instrument in my church now, even
though I've done that before in my previous church,
but sometimes I play in my cell group. God has blessed
me with this instrument so that I can worship Him on
my own in my room.
So, when God tells us something it is usually in line
with how He has shaped us all the while. If we hear
God telling us something that we feel is against the
grain of our being or what we like, we've really got
to seek God and seek confirmation from others. We also
need to not learn to not just jump in to something
because a prophecy was given. Maybe God is still
shaping us for the task.
