What Shall I Bring Him?
“And when they were come into the house, they saw the young child with Mary his mother, and fell down, and worshipped him: and when they had opened their treasures, they presented unto him gifts; gold, and frankincense, and myrrh.” Matthew 2:11 (KJV)
During this time of the year I am reminded of my favorite cartoon in which a young boy thinks he has nothing to bring the new born Baby Jesus, until he realizes he does have a special gift, to play his drum. It is my favorite because despite the tragedy he faced and seeming hopelessness of his life even as a young boy, he still had something to bless the Lord with, to play his drum. This simple story is a powerful reminder to us all that regardless of what has happened in the past, you still have a gift to give the Lord. He has given every one of us a gift and talent to be released in this earth for His glory and purpose. If you are already operating in your gift, then take it to the next level. There are no limits in God.
If you are just starting, then continue and do not let anything the enemy will bring stop you. If you have not started yet or started and laid it down, then make a beginning, start again and do not fear, for He is with you. When the wise men from the East were seeking the King Jesus, they brought with them gifts to give to Him as an act of worship. In this season of hustle and bustle, take the time to reflect on what gift and talent He has given you and bring this gift to your King this Christmas.
Prayer: Dear Heavenly Father, Thank you for the gift of Jesus. I make the commitment and bring to You my gift and talent to be used for Your glory. I repent for not going forward fully and allowing fear and circumstances to stop me and slow me down. I place my trust in You and thank You for taking me higher and higher as I unleash my gift and talent on the world for Your glory. In Jesus’ Name I pray. Amen.
