Work from Your Core Strengths Август 16, 2010

Posted by Lee Goodall in Today's Devotional.

‘…Bring me seventy… who are known… as leaders…’
Numbers 11:16

A group of neighbourhood children built a treehouse and formed their own club. When the grown-ups were told who had been selected for each office, they were astonished to hear that a four-year-old boy had been elected president. ‘He must be a born leader,’ one dad observed. ‘How did it happen that all you bigger boys voted for him?’ His son replied, ‘Well, he can’t very well be secretary because he doesn’t know how to read or write. He couldn’t be treasurer because he can’t count. He would never do for sergeant-at-arms because he’s too little to throw anybody out. If we didn’t choose him for anything, he’d feel bad. So we made him president.’ Life doesn’t work that way! You don’t become successful by default; instead, you must work from your God-given strengths. In life, your purpose is always connected to your giftedness. God doesn’t call you to do something you’ve no talent for. God told Moses, ‘Bring me seventy… who are known to you as leaders.’ You cannot grow to your full potential if you continually work outside your core strengths. Improvement is always related to ability. Do you know what happens when you spend all your time working on your weaknesses, and never develop your strengths? If you work really hard you could claw your way up to mediocrity, but you’ll never get beyond it. Economic necessity and family responsibility may require you to work for a season outside the area of your core strengths, but don’t settle there. Seek God’s guidance, sharpen your gifts, be patient, and God will open doors for you.
