Will you open your heart to His gifts?
By Megan Bailey belief.net
Each year, families spend hundreds of dollars picking out the best Christmas gifts to give each other. We scour the internet for the best deals and latest gadgets so that we can give our friends the best presents we can find. But while we are busy planning, shopping, wrapping, and sending gifts – God is too.
There are gifts from Christ that every Christian can be open, to receiving all year round. No matter what is or is not under your Christmas tree this year, you can take comfort in knowing that God offers you lifelong gifts that are more fulfilling than anything we could have ever bought ourselves. Each gift comes specially wrapped in love – all you have to do is ask! Revelation 22:17 says “The Holy Spirit and the bride say, ‘Come!’ And the person who hears should say, ‘Come!’ Anyone who is thirsty should come. Anyone who wants to take the free gift of the water of life should do so.” Here are the six gifts that God has for you to open this Christmas season.
The Gift of Direction
God wants us to live a life where our talents are used to serve His greater good. In Jeremiah 29:11 it says “‘For I know the plans I have for you,’ says the Lord, ‘plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.'” God’s plan for our lives is greater than one we could ever plan for yourself. Following His plan blindly might feel scary. Obedience often requires faith and risk, but God will delight in your dependence on Him and always be there to support you. We must be willing to trust the Creator and step out, taking His hand by faith. When we do so, He will lead us to bigger things planned. Do not lean on your own understanding, because God has direction for our lives.
