You have already been given that what you need to start your supernatural ministry

Good morning, dear friends!

Welcome to “Daily Word for Spiritual Edification”. We are talking about how important it is to use the gifts and talents that God has given us. All great things start small.

When you first begin, don’t expect something big. Start doing something small that you are able to do and do it with consistency and responsibility and do it with all of your heart. Develop the gifts and talents that you have noticed in yourself, using them for the good of the people and the Kingdom of God. As you do it God will allow you to enter larger ministry. You will be noticed not because you’re sitting around doing nothing, but because you are doing your best. That is how your gift makes room for you.

A man’s gift makes room for him, and brings him before great man” (Proverbs, 18: 16).

Thank God for how He has made you. You may not sing like others or play musical instruments, or do things that others are good at. Nevertheless God is able to do through you unordinary and amazing things. Since you are a member of the Body of Christ, you have a particular role nobody else can play. Nobody else can do things you can do, so forget your excuses and get to work. Start where you are and do your best.

When God called Moses and told him to go to the Pharaoh so that he can lead the children of Israel out of slavery, Moses started looking for excuses and telling God what he can’t do. Then God asked him: «What is that in your hand? He said, “A rod”» (Exodus, 4: 2). God wanted to show Moses that he had everything he needed for his mission; he just needs to put it back into the hands of God Almighty.

Dear friend, you have already been given that what you need to start your supernatural ministry. You just have to be obedient to the Lord and trust Him with the small things you have today.

When Moses gave his rod to God, He turned it into a miracle working instrument. So the rod of Moses turned into the rod of God.

«And you shall take this rod in your hand, with which you shall do the signs. (..) Then Moses took his wife and his sons and set them on a donkey, and he returned to the land of Egypt. And Moses took the rod of God in his hand» (Exodus, 4:17, 20).

Remember the Bible story about Jesus feeding the multitude; it happened because one little boy gave back to the Lord the little he had.

«When it was evening, His disciples came to Him saying, „This is a deserted place, and the hour is already late. Send the multitudes away, that they may go into the villages and buy themselves food.” But Jesus said to them, „They do not need to go away. You give them something to eat.” And hey said to Him, „We have here only five loaves and two fish.” He said, „Bring them here to Me.” Then He commanded the multitudes to sit down on the grass. And He took the five loaves and the two fish, and looking up to heaven, He blessed and broke and gave to the multitudes. So they all ate and were filled, and they took up twelve baskets full of the fragments that remained. Now those who had eaten were about five thousand men, besides women and children» (Mathew, 14: 15-21).

Here, in the story we see that Jesus was teaching His disciples (it means, He was teaching us too) that we should not neglect the small seed that we have, because great thing grow out of small seeds.

Jesus’ disciples were ready to send these people away hungry, even though these were the ones called to minister to; the disciples decided they have nothing to feed them with. So very often we do the same thing: we see some huge ministry need (helping children, youth, women, men, students, families etc.), then we look at our limited resources and decide that there is nothing we can do. So we stay passive expecting these needs to be met some other way.

Jesus wants to meet all needs through us. «But Jesus said to them, „They do not need to go away. You give them something to eat” (Mathew, 14:16). You and I – and not somebody else – are God’s instruments for meeting people’s needs. Start looking at yourself differently starting today. You are a unique creation of God, equipped with God’s gifts to meet the needs and solve the problems in the Body of Christ.

Till tomorrow! Be blessed!
