The Acts And Importance Of Your God-Given Talent

The Acts And Importance Of Your God-Given Talent

Talent is a natural gifts or natural aptitude or skill  from God to mankind.

There are numerous gifts that God gives to men that are not part of the Holy Spirit's gifts but serve humanity, praise God, and help the Body of Christ.

The skill is distinct from the Holy Spirit's Gifts. The Holy Spirit's gifts are known as the gifts of grace or the gifts of the spirit, which implies they are provided by the Holy Spirit, whereas talent is a skill God grants to individuals in order for them to work and make an influence. Both Gifts (Talents and the Holy Spirit) are given in order to have an impact on the lives of others and to bring praise and respect to God. Cooking, singing, dancing, designing, constructing, managing, administrating, and teaching are all examples of talents..


I know many people ask others, "What is your God-Given talent(s)?" The instant you are asked this question, you know what you can accomplish efficiently, you know the skill(s) that distinguishes you from your colleagues, and you can back it up with facts. Our talents distinguish us from many others; we have so many skilled people in this world; all those who are doing so well with their skills knew themselves and what they had, and they worked hard to develop on their talents, which is why they have a stronger impact in our modern society. Mark Zuckerberg's Facebook has been important today since he identified his talent, which is programming and used it to build such a social media website and app making intercontinental communications very easy.

Knowing what makes you unique from others—your skills—is crucial since you can never become like anyone else all at once. If you don't know who you are, you won't be able to make an influence in the world of today. In my home country of Ghana, where teaching occupation is found to be available , many people work in the teaching profession, but in all honesty, the majority of them simply completed the necessary tests to become teachers and are not naturally talented educators. You can choose to become a teacher as a career, even if you lack the requisite aptitude. Many workers are confusing clients, and many teachers are perplexing students in class, even though they have outstanding marks, but their method of teaching is not providing better results for students, because they went in for work but did not seek the correct position. What they are doing is not in relation with their God-Given talent so they struggle to make students understand concept.

There are many students in class who are not competent at all in class; in fact, their IQs for books are extremely low; but, they are very skilled, blessed, and efficient businessmen; some may fail in class but come out of school and be great because there are many abilities that does not require a lot of books. Mark Zuckerberg did not finish university, Bill Gates did not finish school, and Steve Jobs did not finish school; all of these "excuse me," school dropouts are today wealthy businessmen because they recognized that sitting in class for too long wastes vital time for them.

James 1:17 tells us that every gift is from God. We all have different talents and God-given gifts, but they are all important and can be used for God's kingdom.

Others require education; they might find their talents through the educational process. Some people arrive with talents that may need to be refined in school in order to help humanity, such as those of nurses, doctors, lecturers, lawyers, builders, and physiologists, among others.

With the exception of quack doctors, native doctors, and herbalists, no one can become a doctor or a medical practitioner without a formal education.

I'm not passing judgment on other people's skills, but if you're asking if God gave men all their ability, I beg you to say no. Not all skills come from God;  We cannot identify wrestling as a God-Given ability, just as we cannot classify boxing or anything else that cannot not exalt God or benefit either individuals or society as a whole. These talents are not prefect and good skills from God they are from evil acts and evil imaginations of man's heart.

 Why Your God-Given Talent(s)

Any talent that is not used to glorify God and benefit mankind is not approved by God; similarly, any talent used for self-improvement or not in order to honor God, provide for your family, and put food on the table is not used wisely. God endows us with abilities so that we might use them to make our lives more pleasant, benefit others, and exalt his name.

 The Easy-to-Read Version Exodus 35:30-35 Bezalel and Oholiab Then Moses said to the Israelites, “Look, the Lord has chosen Bezalel son of Uri, from the tribe of Judah. (Uri was the son of Hur.) And he has filled Bezalel with the Spirit of God—he gave Bezalel special skill and knowledge to do all kinds of things. He can design and make things with gold, silver, and bronze. He can cut and set stones and jewels. He can work with wood and make all kinds of things. The Lord has given Bezalel and Oholiab special skills to teach other people. (Oholiab was the son of Ahisamach from the tribe of Dan.) He has given both of these men special skills to do all kinds of work. They are able to do the work of carpenters and metalworkers. They can weave cloth with designs in it from blue, purple, and red yarn and fine linen. And they are able to weave things with wool.

 Easy-to-Read Version 1 Chronicles 22:15-16 You have many stonecutters and carpenters. You have men skilled in every kind of work. They are skilled in working with gold, silver, bronze, and iron. You have more skilled workers than can be counted. Now begin the work. And may the Lord be with you.”

 Easy-to-Read Version 2 Chronicles 2:13 I will send you a skilled craftsman named Huram Abi.

Our talents are required even in ministry because we must use them to glorify the Lord. While singing is not a spiritual gift, it is a talent, and God Himself can empower a singer to serve God via their singing, just as He did for Bezalel when He filled him with His Spirit. Along with Bezalel, Oholiab was a teacher who imparted knowledge of a variety of abilities to others.

Administrators, team members who can set up crusade grounds, media men, perfect sound engineers, graphic designers, and other professionals may be needed in the ministry; however, these are not spiritual gifts but rather talents that God has given us in order to serve Him, the Body of Christ, and all people in need for our own advancement.

"Service to mankind is service to God," is a proverb.

To receive your rewards, you must use your gift to serve men as well. The benefits include earnings and salaries, but if you use utilize them to advance the work of the kingdom, you will also receive rewards from God.

Psalms 33:3-4

[3]Sing unto him a new song; play skilfully with a loud noise.

[4]For the word of the LORD is right; and all his works are done in truth.

The Importance Of Your God Given Talent. 

1.  Your Talent(s) Shall Send You Before Great Men And Kings. 

Easy-to-Read Version Proverbs 22:29  Skilled workers will always serve kings. They will never have to work for less important people.

The Israeli soldiers rejoiced when David defeated Goliath, whom they all feared. David, who was filled with the Spirit of the Lord, used his skill properly, which led to a breakthrough and earned him the king's favor. David gained widespread recognition. David was a guy of many talents; he was a shepherd, a musician, and a performer of instruments. His God-given talents made him the King's constant necessity. He was asked to play harps for the king, and that resulted in Saul's liberation. Your brilliance will make even powerful men want to work with you, want you to work for them, get you jobs at major corporations, and even lead people to fight for you. We have graphic designers who design flyers for large establishments such as the Flagstaff House (Working for the president), we have people who work for ministers, and we have people who work for people who are known as big men, and this is because these people use their talents very well, earning them such favor to work in such places.

Joseph, a stranger to the Egyptians, was imprisoned, but he escaped and rose to become Prime Minister via his God-given talent. He was a dream interpreter, and as a result, he was bailed by the king and honored by both the king Pharaoh and his people.

2. The Lord Will Reward You.

Colossians 3:23-24

[23]And whatsoever ye do, do it heartily, as to the Lord, and not unto men;

[24]Knowing that of the Lord ye shall receive the reward of the inheritance: for ye serve the Lord Christ.

God will bless you if you use your talent correctly and use it to serve the Lord as well. You will be rewarded by God.

If God gives you a voice, use it to praise, worship, and adore God as David did, and He will take you to greater heights.

Use It Or Loose It! 

Matthew 25:14-30

[14]For the kingdom of heaven is as a man travelling into a far country, who called his own servants, and delivered unto them his goods. 

[15]And unto one he gave five talents, to another two, and to another one; to every man according to his several ability; and straightway took his journey. 

[16]Then he that had received the five talents went and traded with the same, and made them other five talents. 

[17]And likewise he that had received two, he also gained other two. 

[18]But he that had received one went and digged in the earth, and hid his lord's money. 

[19]After a long time the lord of those servants cometh, and reckoneth with them. 

[20]And so he that had received five talents came and brought other five talents, saying, Lord, thou deliveredst unto me five talents: behold, I have gained beside them five talents more. 

[21]His lord said unto him, Well done, thou good and faithful servant: thou hast been faithful over a few things, I will make thee ruler over many things: enter thou into the joy of thy lord. 

[22]He also that had received two talents came and said, Lord, thou deliveredst unto me two talents: behold, I have gained two other talents beside them. 

[23]His lord said unto him, Well done, good and faithful servant; thou hast been faithful over a few things, I will make thee ruler over many things: enter thou into the joy of thy lord. 

[24]Then he which had received the one talent came and said, Lord, I knew thee that thou art an hard man, reaping where thou hast not sown, and gathering where thou hast not strawed: 

[25]And I was afraid, and went and hid thy talent in the earth: lo, there thou hast that is thine. 

[26]His lord answered and said unto him, Thou wicked and slothful servant, thou knewest that I reap where I sowed not, and gather where I have not strawed: 

[27]Thou oughtest therefore to have put my money to the exchangers, and then at my coming I should have received mine own with usury. 

[28]Take therefore the talent from him, and give it unto him which hath ten talents. 

[29]For unto every one that hath shall be given, and he shall have abundance: but from him that hath not shall be taken away even that which he hath. 

[30]And cast ye the unprofitable servant into outer darkness: there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth. 

Please understand that the talent here is referring to gifts or money, but I am using this story because it best fits what I have stated about "use it or lose it." I am telling you the truth: we will have to account for every skill given to us by God. How do we put our Talent to use?

Did you narrate your time in order to become so useful and beneficial to God's kingdom?

We will be asked a series of questions.

Please don't be idle since the Lord has entrusted these gifts to us so that as we utilize them to glorify Him, we may also put food on the table.

The Man made them stewards over what He entrusted to them, but He returned to find someone acting unfruitful.

If you don't use it, you may lose your stewardship and someone else may take what you have. You may have the talent here on Earth, but someone else can take over what you should have.

May you not lose your stewardship; please, my darling, we shall be judged; never, ever hide yourself when your duty is required. It distinguishes you; otherwise, God will offer your spot to someone you never expected.

Whatever you discover, please do it with all your strength and heart.

Colossians 3:23-24

[23]And whatsoever ye do, do it heartily, as to the Lord, and not unto men;

[24]Knowing that of the Lord ye shall receive the reward of the inheritance: for ye serve the Lord Christ.

Never hesitate, put off, or give up on your talent.

You are welcome to share what you have, and the Lord Himself will reward you as you develop or emerge!

Isaiah 60:1

[1]Arise, shine; for thy light is come, and the glory of the LORD is risen upon thee.
