Skills that can kill a giant

*Making the Most of Opportunities – 2!*
*Skill That Can Slay a Giant*

*"A man's gift maketh room for him, and bringeth him before great men." Proverbs 18:16 (KJV)*

When people hear the story of David and Goliath, sometimes they think, "That was God." And yes, you are right, I know it was God. But the truth is that God didn't sling the stone. God didn't cause it to hit at just the right spot. It was the skill God gave David that he had developed.

Like David, God has put in you the skill that can slay a giant. You have skill that can open new doors, skills that can lead to an abundant life, but the key is that your skill has to be developed. Every day that you spend growing, learning and improving, you're getting prepared for that new level.

While you're waiting for that new opportunity, start sharpening your skills. Study your boss. Study your manager. Learn that position. Be able to step into their shoes. *When God sees that you are prepared, then He can open new doors. Keep developing your skills because there is a giant slayer in you!*

When I was in Primary 5, I was picked alongside some other pupils to represent the school in a debate competition and I wanted to be the main speaker, but the teachers didn't choose me. Nevertheless, I imagined that the girl who was made the main speaker wasn't going to do well, and the teachers would have to pick me after all. I dreamed about it in my mind. But it didn't happen that way.
I was dreaming about being the main speaker, but I wasn't preparing; I wasn't learning the words or memorizing the points. If the teachers had called on me, I wouldn't have been able to perform.

God does not want us to just sit around dreaming about things we can do and be. That's a good place to start, but a poor place to stop. God wants us to turn our dreams into action. We all have untapped gifts and talents inside us, and the way to develop our potential is by stepping out in faith and making the most of every opportunity.

It's not how much you have, but it's how you use what you have that matters. Are you making the most of the gifts and talents God has given to you?

*Opportunity is taking advantage of situations by the gift of God in your life. If you are not prepared for an opportunity, you won't get it.*

*It is skill that empowers us to out-smart our peers. Prepare for opportunities.*

*Jesus is Lord!*

This week will be your best week ever.

Good Morning!
