GOD-GIVEN GIFTS!

Then the Lord spoke to Moses, saying: ‘See, I have called by name Bezalel the son of Uri, the son of Hur, of the tribe of Judah. And I have filled him with the Spirit of GOD, in wisdom, in understanding, in knowledge, and in all manner of workmanship,’”Exodus 31:1-3 ~NKJV“

.GOD is the giver of skills and wisdom! Do not waste that gift by being bored! That’s why He said, “I have filled him with the Spirit of GOD, in wisdom, in understanding, in knowledge, and in all manner of workmanship,”

Scripture gives us a few examples of people who, because of their dedication and hard work, were serving in the presence of kings:i)

Joseph served Pharaoh as an administrator (Genesis 41)ii)

Moses was a powerful orator (Exodus 4:10, 11)iii)

David served Saul as a musician (1 Samuel 16)iv)

Huram served Solomon as a master craftsman (1 Kings 7)

Remember this fact: “If it is worth learning, then it is worth learning well. Do your best.” Learn as much as you can. Excel in what you do and bring glory to your Heavenly Father.“

And whatever you do, do it heartily, as to the Lord and not to men, knowing that from the Lord you will receive the reward of the inheritance; for you serve the Lord Christ. But he who does wrong will be repaid for what he has done, and there is no partiality.” (Colossians 3:23-25)

May be an image of text that says "Do you see a man skillful in his work? He will stand before kings; he will not stand before obscure men. ~Proverbs 22:29 ESV"

Solomon has pointed out over and over again that laziness and apathy will get you nowhere, but hard work will open doors. Remember this proverb: “The way of the lazy is like a hedge of thorns [it pricks, lacerates, and entangles him], but the way [of life] of the upright is smooth and open like a highway.” -Proverbs 15:19 (AMP)Even in the New Testament we find instructions on not being lazy, but working hard.

The Apostle Paul, speaking to the church in Rome, advocated for enthusiastic work for the Lord. Paul tells them to work with a good attitude and an expectation. He said:“Never be lazy, but work hard and serve the Lord enthusiastically.” Romans 12:11 (NLT)
