“A man’s gift maketh room for him, and bringeth him before great men.” Proverbs 18:16

Until recently, I had always read this scripture to mean that if you take a present to someone on your first introduction it will put you in good standing. I still agree with this statement, but upon reading Myles Munroe’s book, “The Power and Purpose of Vision”, I began to look at it in a different way.

In his book he states that this scripture means “The gift that God gave you (that talent, natural gifting to do) will open doors for you and it will bring you before great men.”

WOW! So if I am “gifted” to do, than that “gift” will bring me before great men… AWESOME!

Today I am encouraging all my brothers and sisters to find out what you are gifted to do; write, draw, play music, start a business, work will numbers, build, sports…. whatever it is, I would like to encourage you to GO GO GO! Use that gift, and see where it takes you. Maybe, just maybe you and Henry Ford, or Eric Clapton, or Paul McCartney, or even Beyonce aren’t that different!A prayer for today,”Father God you made me special. You gave me a gift. Thank you for revealing it to me and showing my through Dr. Munroe’s book that when I operate in that gift, that work that I LOVE, I will be brought before great men and with succeed, just like you originally intended and purposed. I love you, in Your Son Jesus’ name, AMEN!”Mickey Mouse, Walt Disney is a fine example of a visionary who laid hold of his gifts and gave his love for children, art, and animation his full attention.

He gave himself for us to set us free from every sin and to cleanse us so that we can be his special people who are enthusiastic about doing good things. Titus 2:14 NLT
