Sharpen Your Skills

Wednesday, September 04, 2013

“He has filled them with skill to do all manner of work...”
(Exodus 35:35, NKJV)
TODAY’S WORD from Joel and Victoria

It’s easy to fall into “destination disease.” That’s when you’re comfortable where you are. You’re not stretching, not learning anything new. There is nothing wrong with being happy where you are, but you have to remember, you have so much more inside of you. You were created to increase, to grow, to stretch and sharpen your skills.

Studies tell us that the average person only uses 11% of their brain. Think about how much more potential we all could be tapping into. Maybe you’re an accountant. That’s good, but don’t settle there. Why don’t you go get your CPA license? There’s a new skill you can develop. That gift will make more room for you. Maybe you’re an electrician, a mechanic, a plumber. That’s great, but what steps are you taking to improve? I believe in this day and age, if you are at the same skill level today as you were five years ago, you’re at a disadvantage.

Today, shake out of that “destination disease” and start sharpening your skills. Keep stretching, keep growing and keep moving forward into the life of blessing God has prepared for you!
Father, thank You for every good and perfect gift that You have given me. I choose to honor You with every gift and every talent. Show me how to sharpen my skills in a way that always brings glory and honor to You in Jesus’ name. Amen.
— Joel & Victoria Osteen

    It is easier, as we get older, to be comfortable wherever we are. As young people, everything is new and exciting. That's why I like SP because it gives me the opportunity to set new goals and keep stretching myself. emoticon Thanks for sharing since it gave me a chance to share too. Have a great weekend!

    Love, Chelsea emoticon
