But unto every one of us is given grace according to the measure of the gift of Christ (Ephesians 4:7)

You have special abilities!

The Living Bible translation renders the opening scripture this way “However, Christ has given each of us special abilities; whatever He wants us to have out of His rich storehouse of gifts.”  I like that term, “Special abilities,” for it lets us know that there’s not single one of God’s children that is lacking in ability. You may never have thought about the fact that God has given you special abilities, but let it dawn on you today that there’s special abilities in you which came into your life when you were born again and received the Holy Spirit.

The Bible says “But you shall receive power (ability, efficiency, and might) when the Holy Spirit has come upon you”. (Acts 1:8 AMP). What you need do is recognize and agree with what the Word says; tell yourself “God has given me special abilities, and I’m putting these abilities to work in my life.” Remember that God doesn’t have a duplicate of you; He has deposited in you gifts and abilities that set you apart and make you do things in a unique way. What a wonderful blessing! You can express the beauty of God from your spirit in a way that no one else can.

Never look at yourself and think there’s nothing special about you; don’t compare yourself with someone else. God has given you special abilities and it’s up to you to let them show, and make impact in the kingdom of God.


I thank You Father for depositing within my spirit, special abilities according to the measure of the gift of Christ. No task or endeavour is beyond me for I have in me the grace and supernatural ability I require for every task, in Jesus Christ Name I pray! Amen!


May Our God The Almighty prosper Nigeria and Israel and defend us from all our enemies in Jesus Christ Name, Amen!
