OPEN HEAVENS DAILY DEVOTIONAL FOR TEENS WEDNESDAY 28TH FEBRUARY 2018: USE YOUR TALENT WELL
MEMORISE: A man’s gift maketh room for him, and bringeth him before great men
Please read: Matthew 25:14-30
Your talent is the gift that God gave you when you were coming to the world. He expects you to
use it well. If your talent is to write, then study more on how to write better and keep writing
and publishing your write-ups any chance you get.
If your talent is to play football, then you should practice regularly. Whatever your talent is, don’t let It lie fallow because one day, God will ask you what you used it for.
You must however note that education is very important to help you use your talent better.
Many talented people that did not get education have missed it. They thought their talent will help them become great and rightly so, but they
forgot that raw talent is not enough.
You need to go to school, get a degree and then you will be
better equipped to use your talent profitably.
Also, many use their talents for the devil; the devil has nothing good to offer you. He will
entice you with flashy things, and at the end of the day give you emptiness.
When you use your
talent for God, you will have all round peace and joy in your life.
Don’t waste God’s gift in your life, use your talent well.
BIBLE IN ONE YEAR:
1. When we walk with the Lord in the light of His
What a glory He sheds on our way!
While we do His good will,
He abides with us still,
And with all who will trust and obey.
Trust and obey, for there’s no other way
To be happy in Jesus, but to trust and obey.
2. Not a shadow can rise, not a cloud in the
But His smile quickly drives it away;
Not a doubt or a fear, not a sigh or a tear,
Can abide while we trust and obey.
3. Not a burden we bear, not a sorrow we share,
But our toil He doth richly repay;
Not a grief or a loss, not a frown or a cross,
But is blessed if we trust and obey.
4.But we never can prove the delights of His
Until all on the altar we lay;
For the favor He shows, for the joy He bestows,
Are for them who will trust and obey.
5. Then in fellowship sweet we will sit at His
Or we’ll walk by His side in the way;
What He says we will do, where He sends we will
Never fear, only trust and obey.
