Here are my reflections and comments from today’s scripture from Our Daily Inspirations App.
My brothers and sisters in Christ, before I read or comment on God’s word, I pray that He prepares my heart to receive his guidance and ask that He uses me as his vessel to comment on His word.
The scripture is from Exodus 35:35: “He has filled them with wisdom of heart to work all kinds of workmanship, of the engraver, of the skillful workman, and of the embroiderer, in blue, in purple, in scarlet, and in fine linen, and of the weaver, even of those who do any workmanship, and of those who make skillful works.”
The devotion is titled The Wisdom of God’s Heart by Beatrice Jean-Baptiste. The author starts off by reminding us that God has given each of us the ability to create something marvelous to add to Earth’s beauty. We posse talents that only we can do with our uniqueness and creativity. Our talents, skills, and gifts are by design. The creativity we have reflects God’s wisdom in creating us, His masterpiece. Just like in today’s scripture Exodus 35:35. God has a specific, special, and set-apart calling over our lives. He created us to create so our talents would further His kingdom and inspire others to do the same.
Reflections, Questions, and Challenges for Us: Why are your talents a form of God’s wisdom? How can you use your talents to serve others today?
Here is my response, yours may be different: God gave me certain talents only I can do. I can use my unique talents (in this case writing) to glorify God by inspiring and serving others.
My Personal Prayer for us: Creator God, thank you for blessing us with talents, gifts, and skills that only we can do in our own special way. Help us to use our talents to glorify You as Bezalel land Oholiab did. In Jesus’ name we pray. Amen.
