I See You Hiding (by Rebecca Albrecht)

I see you hiding there, come out and dance with Me. Hide and seek isn’t just for kids, there is an adult version that is like the parable of the talents.  We bury our talent, acting as if it needed to be preserved.  Talents and gifts are given to us for His glory. 

Shying away, being humiliated, fearful…these are slapping the face of the Gift Giver.  Harsh.  I thought so too.  I read this somewhere and it made an impact on me.  I was raised by constantly being compared to my cousin and younger sister which instilled in me, “Oh there is someone who can do that better…let them, and you just watch.”  Where does this leave your gift?  Behind the wall and unused.  No one can deliver your gift or talent like you.  The world has judges but our ultimate Judge is the one who gave us the gift.

Matthew 25: 25,26  And I was afraid, and went away and hid the talent you gave me in the ground.  But his master answered and said to him, “You wicked, lazy slave, you knew that I reap where I did not sow, and gather where I scattered no seed.”

My prayer for you is that you do not undermine your gifts and talents.  These blessings are from God, freely given for you to give back to Him in the lifting up of His Kingdom purposes.  Cherish these treasures until the end.
