Gifts from God

God has gifts for each of us that He has given us but 
some are too scared to open them.
Take hold of each gift that God has given you.  
Open them and unwrap them and use them for his glory.

Some of the many gifts are :

           Unwrap and take it. You no longer have to live in torment.

This includes laughter.  The Word said the Joy of the Lord is our strength.  
Smile even when you don't feel like it and regain your strength.

This is one that we desperately NEED because the Word said 
if we don't have Love all the other gifts are pointless.  
Love covers a multitude of sins.  
Two ways to demonstrate Love are random acts of kindness 
and praying for people who use you or who have mistreated you.

This is treating others as you would like to be treated.
Mercy looks into the situation and has compassion and can pray for the situation.
The Word says HIS mercies are new every morning.

It changes our heart and takes the focus off of us 
and puts it back on God where it belongs.
We need to praise Him through our circumstances 
for He alone is worthy of our praise.
We need to become true worshipers 
and stop giving God lip service.
Praise and worship Him even when you don't feel like it 
and watch your heart change.

This one is a very interesting gift because to get this gift 
we have to be willing to give this gift first.
God forgave us of our sins when He paid 
the ultimate price on Calvary but yet still
it is so hard for us to forgive someone 
for saying something about us.  
The more you give this gift away the greater the reward.

These are just some of the gifts God has given us.  
Ask the Holy Spirit to show you which ones you have not unwrapped yet 
and open them then use them for the glory of God.
