So often I give you a gift
And then you take it from me
Then you let it rest awhile
You don’t use that gift from me.
You don’t fully unwrap it
You lay it on a shelf –
You hold the gift and receive it
With thankfulness to me –
Sometimes you start to use it
And then you lay it aside.
The gifts I give are for your use
To benefit my kingdom.
The answer to the prayers you pray
Are often on the shelf.
Oh that you would understand
The instruction in my Word –
You need never put them on the shelf
To wait another day.
Keep them close.
Use them one by one.
Sometimes even together –
Use the best gift for each occasion.
None is better than another –
They all work together for my glory.
I ask you this day to use the gifts I have given you.
Fully open each
Look and see.
Read the instructions carefully.
As my power flows
And you plug into me
You will see – those gifts work ‘automatically’
They are designed in such a way
To function well through each one.
As you progress and start to use the gifts I have given
You will see my glory flow
In a way you have not yet seen.
