I heard the Lord say, “Many of you have moved into your next season, but you haven't unpacked yet. I have many things for you. They are still packed away. It is time for you to unpack them. I have placed many things ahead of you for your next journey and it is time for you to open them up and use them. I have them ready, all you have to do is open them up. There are gifts waiting for you to open and use. I have it all ready for you. Open them and experience them and use them.”
Think of it this way: If I give you a gift for your birthday, you are going to take that gift and open it. Let’s say, for the sake of analogy, that inside this gift is a laptop. You will take that laptop out of the box, turn it on and learn how to use it. Then, more than likely you will use it every day.
God is saying to you and I that He has already placed gifts and things ahead of us as we enter into our next season with Him. We will need these for the next season, that is why He has them ahead of us already in place. He is wanting us to open them, take them out of the box and learn how to use them, learn what He wants us to do with them. He doesn't want us to leave them unopened or unused. He has them ahead of us for a purpose and it is time to move forward with Him and use the gifts He has given you for His purpose and plan.
Romans 12:6-8 (NLT) “In His grace, God has given us different gifts for doing certain things well. So if God has given you the ability to prophesy, speak out with as much faith as God has given you. If your gift is serving others, serve them well. If you are a teacher, teach well. If your gift is to encourage others, be encouraging. If it is giving, give generously. If God has given you leadership ability, take the responsibility seriously. And if you have a gift of showing kindness to others, do it gladly.”
I Corinthians 2:4-6 (NLT) “There are different kinds of spiritual gifts, but the same Spirit is the source of them all. There are different kinds of service, but we serve the same Lord. God works in different ways, but it is the same God who does the work in all of us.”
1 Corinthians 12:8-10 (NKJV) “for to one is given the word of wisdom through the Spirit, to another the word of knowledge through the same Spirit, to another faith by the same Spirit, to another the gifts of healings by the same Spirit, to another the working of miracles, to another prophecy, to another discerning of spirits, to another different kinds of tongues, to another the interpretation of tongues. But one and the same Spirit works all these things, distributing to each one individually as He wills.”
What gift/ gifts does God have waiting for you? He is wanting you to open it/them and find out. Then He wants you to take the gifts and use them, flow in them for His glory and His purpose for your life. I want you to understand that when God gives you gifts He will enable you and equip you to use them and flow in them with Him. He just wants you and me to trust Him, unwrap them and move with Him. He wants us to lean into and onto Him and not lean on our own understanding.
Don't leave your gifts from God unopened. Instead open them and fan into flame the gifts He has given you. These gifts are laid ahead of you for your next season. He has handpicked them and delivered them ahead of time. They are waiting for you. God knows what we need before we need it and He has it ready for you, waiting for you in your next season. “To the ones who haven't stepped into your next season, take the step out of your old season, leave it behind and step into your next season. NOW IS THE TIME FOR YOU TO STEP”, says the Lord. “Open the gifts I have ready for you and move in them. I am with you!!! Let's do this together. Your next season is HERE. Step into it , trust ME and move with Me,” says the Lord.
