Gifts Like Seeds

November 25, 2021

For you formed my inward parts; you knitted me together in my mother's womb. Psalms 139:13 (ESV)

God has placed gifts and desires deep within you that are like seeds waiting to be watered.

When you were in your mother’s womb, God placed gifts and desires within you. According to Psalm 139:13, He shaped your inmost being. He gave you natural tendencies that can explode into great talents with a bit of dedication. He also shaped you for certain causes. You have the potential to focus your entire life on something you are passionate about.

If you didn’t have the opportunity to cultivate your gifts as you grew up, those gifts are still waiting for your attention. You are not limited to only one gift.

People often get hung up on finding the one path they were destined to follow. Your destiny is not one grandiose cause or purpose. There are several gifts and desires in you that can impact the people around you.

Your destiny is not a road that you need to frantically look for—it is a journey. To continue to go the right direction, build your relationship with God by exposing yourself to great Biblical teaching and by reading the Bible and applying what you have learned. Continue to make it your goal to grow closer to God and you will not miss the incredible destiny He has for you.
