The Treasure Within You

“We have this treasure in earthen vessels.” 2Co 4:7 NKJV

God has given you talents and He wants you to use them. They may lie dormant under layers of failure, fear, or low self-esteem. You may be aware of them, yet not know how to put them to work. Maybe you’ve been going from relationship to relationship hoping to find someone who will acknowledge what’s within you and draw it out. If so, read this: “But we have this treasure in earthen vessels, that the excellence of the power may be of God and not of us.” Only the God who placed your talents within you knows where they’re hidden and how to release them. Delayed destiny is the Devil’s delight. By not allowing God to develop your talents you play into Satan’s hands, living far below your potential. The fact is, you have so much treasure buried within you that the Enemy is out to steal it. You never have to wonder about Satan’s motives. Jesus said he comes “to steal, kill and destroy” (Jn 10:10 TLB). You don’t try to rob somebody unless they have something worth taking, right? Your talents may be raw and undeveloped, or buried under years of self-doubt, unconfessed sin, bad habits, regret and despair. But God can take something that looks like nothing, and create something wonderful with it. Just think: He made the earth from nothing—so imagine what He can do when He has something to start with! Today get down on your knees and pray, “Father, help me to recognize and maximize the talents You have placed within me, and use them for Your glory.” That’s a prayer God will answer!

Thanks, Ken. I see so many talents in folks that they don't recognize as talents and fail to use them. I always try to encourage them to do so.

Awesome! Seems like the potential of our brains isn't the only thing we don't use. We all need help to develop in so many ways.
