Daily Thought For September 4, 2018

Overcoming Insecurities
 
How can I overcome the insecurities that get in the way of allowing God to use me? 
 
GOD'S RESPONSE 
 
We are God's masterpiece. He has created us anew in Christ Jesus, so that we can do the good things he planned for us long ago.  Ephesians 2:10 
 
You should not be like cowering, fearful slaves. You should behave instead like God's very own children, adopted into his family---calling him "Father, dear Father." For his Holy Spirit speaks to us deep in our hearts and tells us that we are God's children. Romans 8: 15-16 
 
I can do everything with the help of Christ who gives me the strength I need. Philippians 4: 13 
 
 God made you in his own image, so he must value you highly! He doesn't make mistakes; he created you with unique gifts so that you can do the specific tasks he has for you to do. He does not expect more from you than what he knows you can give, but he does expect you to use what he has given you. That is why it is so important to discover your own special gifts. When you match your unique God-given gifts with the right area of service, you have a match made in heaven. Your insecurities will melt away and you will become bold in serving God. Then service will no longer be a chore, but a joy and passion. 
 
GOD'S PROMISE 
 
It is the one and only Holy Spirit who distributes these gifts. He alone decides which gift each person should have. 1 CORINTHIANS 12:11
