Five Minute Friday – SHARE

Post your Prayer Requests on Instapray. Pray with the whole world --------->

Our middle child is the mother of three children ages 7, 5 and nearly 4. They are good at teaching each other how to share. Words like “mine” and “don’t” and “give it to me!” are shouted from the housetops. They force the sharing and each individual child is the recipient of their own share.

Aren’t we like that? We see what someone has in the way of ministry gifts and we want to “share” that. It’s ours too! We may even decide that they need to give that gift to us! After all, we might know better how to use that gift. We might even think God intended us to have that gift simply because the one who has it is using it so well. We make comparisons of the gifts and that comparison is a thief – it steals our peace, our joy and our productivity.

Oh beloved, every good and perfect gift comes down from the Father. Share your blessings and share your story. But don’t think you have to be stingy with your gifts. And don’t think you have to have someone else’s gift to be worthy to God. You are unique and your opportunities to share are going to flow out of your heart as you let God be your source of giftings and blessings.

God loves you and He’s for you. This means you are fully equipped for every good work He sends you to do. Relax and let yourself enjoy the gifts God has given you as you live in the Light of His Glory and Grace.

Philemon 1:6 And I am praying that you will put into action the generosity that comes from your faith as you understand and experience all the good things we have in Christ.

2 Thessalonians 1:11 So we keep on praying for you, asking our God to enable you to live a life worthy of His call. May He give you the power to accomplish all the good things your faith prompts you to do.

About Rebekah Beene

In a Women’s meeting in 1983, I went up for prayer and to see if God had “anything for me”. The woman of God who was praying for people spoke over my life. She said these words: “You will write books. You can go to the bank on it. Rivers of living water will flow from your belly…”

    “We make comparisons of the gifts and that comparison is a thief – it steals our peace, our joy and our productivity.” This is so profoundly true, and one of the hardest habits to break. Life is so peaceful when we stop comparing ourselves to others and coveting their gifts. You write beautifully, Rebekah. Thanks for linking up.
