There is a good chance we have all tried to do a job or a project with the wrong tool. Generally, it doesn’t go very well. At the very least it is not very efficient. Operating outside our spiritual giftedness can have similar results. God gave us gifts to empower us to do ministry, not in our own strength, but in His. Operating outside our giftedness can lead to discouragement, burnout, and frustration.
God is always at work in our lives. He has a plan for each one of us. As we continue on our journey in service to Him, being disciples, making disciples, making disciples, we must not waver or allow ourselves to be distracted. We must keep our eyes on the mission and through guidance of the Holy Spirit continue until the end. 2014-08-03 Acts 20-21_SayingGoodbye
