“For the gifts and calling of God are without repentance.” Romans 11:29 (KJV)
If someone gave you a gift for your birthday, it is your gift. You could leave it at their house and come back the next day, and they would still say it is yours. The struggle comes when you left and didn’t come back for a considerable amount of time. We wonder is it still there. We even get tempted to think it’s gone or it’s too late, therefore, why even try. However, when you decide to come back, they tell you your gift is right here and it is still yours. That person is God.
Our gifts are a miraculous faculty and God has given them to us. Go back to God, and you will find He never took it away. The Amplified Version says, “For God’s gifts and His call are irrevocable. [He never withdraws them when once they are given, and He does not change His mind about those to whom He gives His grace or to whom He sends His call.]” God did not give your gifts and calling to someone else. It is right there where you left it. Those gifts are still yours. That calling is still yours. This is the amazing love of a faithful God for His daughters. God will continue to call you, and now it is time to answer.
Prayer: Father, I thank you that just as You will never leave, what you have called me to do will never leave either. I thank You it is still there. Forgive me for walking away, yet I am here as Your daughter to pick it up again. I have been given gifts to do to fulfill Your calling on my life. With joy, I answer You now and I know Your voice. I will use what is in my hands and move forward with power, in all You have called me to! In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
