Your Gift Will Make Room for You.............

Proverbs 18:16 A man's gift makes room for him, and brings him before great men"

On yesterday, a co-worker and I was conversing about career changes.  We discussed the possibilities of pursuing an education in a career totally different field from what we pursued in school.  My co-worker stated that she would be more successful if she would go into another field.  Once she mentioned that statement, my mind immediately went to the scripture in Proverbs 18:16 A man's gift makes room for him, and brings him before great men.  I am not referring to a gift someone gives you,  but of the gift that is planted within you. I informed her that no doubt that education is important, it opens doors for you and is the one thing no one can ever take from you, however it is your God given gift that makes you successful . God gives each of us a gift and each of us was born with a God-given talent or ability--the same gift that makes you unique from others. What is your gift? Some people have the gift of writing, others singing, and some speaking, just to name a few. Your gift is your passion. When you are operating in your gift, you have complete fulfillment, peace, and joy even if there is no compensation involved.  Are you exercising your gift? Some of us are sitting on gifts that will make us successful,  however we have not yet discovered what those gifts are.  Your gift will lie dormant within you if you do not utilize them. Once you begin operating in your gift, doors will begin to open and you will begin to achieve great things.
