Stir up the Gift of God Within You!
— Kay and Olu Taiwo
What are you doing with the gifts God has given you? Are they laying dormant? If so, I have a word for you: Stir up the gift of God in you! Stop waiting for someone to come and pat you on the back and tell you how wonderful you are. Most likely nobody will. You may find yourself waiting till your hair turns gray.
Paul had some powerful encouragement for His protégé, Timothy:
“…I remind you to fan into flame the gift of God, which is in you through the laying on of my hands.
“For God did not give us a spirit of timidity, but a spirit of power, of love and of self-discipline.” (2nd Timothy 1:6,7 NIV)
