And whenever the spirit from God came upon Saul, David would pick up his harp and play, and Saul would become well, and the spirit of distress would depart from him. – 1 Samuel 16:23
There is someone who really needs the comfort you can share with them through the gifts and talents God has given you.
God used His imagination to think up the entire universe and then created it all with His incredible power—galaxies, quarks, DNA, every plant and animal. His artistry is amazing! And at a specific point in time He used His wonderful imagination and marvelous power to come up with you!
That’s right! You are as breathtaking as planets and solar systems. You are as beautiful as mountains and oceans. You are important and unique in God’s creation. You are loved by Him and supplied with gifts and talents, and a special purpose.
Maybe you think you have nothing to offer. But Jesus said if you give even a cup of cold water in His name, you will be blessed. So begin there, with things you know how to do. Something so simple and easy you may think it means nothing. Start with just a cup of cold water.
Most of us will not be like David and slay giants. We will not rule a nation or acquire great wealth. We will not write a book of the Bible, be a master musician, and drive away evil spirits with our poems and songs. But we all have gifts given by God that are just as important and just as glorifying to Him. In heaven, someone might say, “Look, David is standing next to that person that gave out 100,000 cups of cold water. Wow, God really used them!”
God has great things for you to do. That’s why He imagined you and created you!
