GOOD WORKS

What are the good works that God created for you to walk in?
How do you know what they are?

I certainly have wrestled with these questions plenty and may have a glimpse or two at the answer to help you find your way.

 

What are your spiritual gifts?
Helps (also called service)
Giving
Exhortation
Teaching
Prophecy
Words of knowledge
Wisdom
Tongues
Interpretation of tongues
Healing
Working of miracles
Administration
Pastoring

 

What do you seem to be attracted to?  One of the most important lessons I ever learned is that God’s assignments will feed and bless me as much as they do others.  He built me with certain likes, desires and interests that can only be fulfilled as I “will and do his good pleasure.”  Vocational choice, volunteer activities  and hobbies will point to these things.

What are your natural gifts and talents?
Music
Art
Poetry
Writing
Cooking
Fixig things
Mechanics
Computers
Research
Gardening
Taking care of people
Building
Designing
Sewing
Cleaning
Organizing
Working with children
Serving elders

And on the list goes.

 

One thing I have come to understand that really encourages me and helps me to rest:  God does have good works for me to do; I don’t have to wonder about that.
