For God’s gifts and his call can never be withdrawn.
Romans 11:29 (NLT)
Reminiscing of my childhood. My favourite game was Tag. We would play for hours, if you tagged someone, you would call out, NO tag backs!!!… Meaning that once you transferred your position to them they could not turn around and give it right back. This reminds me of our heavenly Father. Our Father God is imparting talents into us frequently, He is equipping us for the work He has for us to do, For God’s gifts and his call can never be withdrawn. This verse always reminds me of that childhood game, NO TAG BACKS!
We often find ourselves in a position where we feel we are fighting to keep a hold of what we have been given. Struggling with our flesh and the discipline it takes to stay faithful where you are.
Maybe its struggling to find your place in the body of Christ. I can remember a time in my life where I felt as though I was playing tug of war with God, I felt as though the gifting’s God had placed in me were slipping away. I realized after time in prayer that He wasn’t the one that was taking away my gifting’s, I was robbing myself by not spending enough time in the word and in prayer.
Romans 11:29 Amplified says
For the gifts and the calling of God are irrevocable [for He does not withdraw what He has given, nor does He change His mind about those to whom He gives His grace or to whom He sends His call].
The passion Translation states
And when God chooses someone and graciously imparts gifts to him, they are never rescinded.
The Message Translation states
God’s gifts and God’s call are under full warranty—never cancelled, never rescinded.
Under Full Warranty!!! If I feel as though my gifting’s are not in full manifestation I can spend more time in His word and prayer and I know without a doubt that a refreshing will come because the gifting’s God has placed on me are Under Full Warranty!!
When God saw you at the foundations of the earth He called you faithful, He called you developed, He called you complete lacking nothing. God knew what your gifts would be and He said I can use those! I need those gifts in operation on the earth. I need YOU to be my hands and feet. If you will give them to Him He will use them.
I know at times I have questioned: Did God give me gifting’s? Did God call me? Did God choose me? The answer is yes!
Make a fresh dedication today to pray into your gifting’s and receive the full manifestation of the call of God on your life! We all have a place in the army of God so receive your orders!!!
Confession: Heavenly Father, today I come before you to make a fresh commitment of my life. I will, by faith, walk in the gifting’s and callings you have placed in me. I will, by faith, receive a refreshing in my spirit. I will, by faith, look for opportunities to use the gifting’s and callings you have placed in me. I thank you now that I am full, I am filled to the brim, I am running over with your anointing and your love. I thank you now for the lives you are going to reach through me and for counting me faithful. Thank you, Father, in the name of Jesus, Amen!
