Respect the Gift

I was sharing the other day, I believe that our gifts are to empower each other. Empower, to heal, to help, bring light into someone’s darkness. I know I would not be where I am today if people sent to me did not utilize their gifts to enlighten me. I’m so thankful that my call was answered, my prayer was heard, the angels, healers, and helpers were sent to me.

But what happens when we request, call, pray and the answer is brought but we do not embrace it. I believe if you request or pray for help and a helper or healer comes your way, you might not want to ignore it. The person sent to you that you feel a connection with or know they are present to share wisdom to enlighten you and help you, you need to embrace.

I know of a situation where one person prayed for an answer. You know, you’ve heard it, God please send me a husband, a wife, a child, a person to help me with this or that. Well, the prayer was answered when the person came but the requesting party did not embrace the helper. The answered prayer was right in front of them but they disrespected it, didn’t honor or appreciate the helper and the gifts they brought. The person that requested the helper, started having one bad thing after another happen. It was a series of crazy unexplainable events. This went on for many years and I believe still is happening today because the person that prayed for the answer did not honor the answer.

It’s simple, you cannot pray and ask God to help you and then snub the person he sends to utilize their gifts to help and heal you. It’s a slap in the face to God. Respecting gifts and honoring those he sent is your prayer answered.

We are all here to help, heal and serve each other and the only way to do that is to utilize the gifts that we are given. I’ve always believed that our God-given gifts not utilized can be taken away. The gift is given for you to practice, then to perform so you can bless others. It’s the only way other’s prayers can be answered.

Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you.
Matthew 7:7
