For the gifts and calling of God are without repentance. Romans 11:29
God’s purpose for us is not to work or “toil” for a living but to work or “utilize our gifts” based on our assignment here on earth. Everything created in the universe performs its assignment effortlessly. The sun does not toil to radiate energy and heat and the sea does not struggle to produce waves. They do not toil or struggle to perform their respective assignments because they are gifted to radiate energy/heat and produce waves! That is the reason the Bible says, “A man’s gift maketh room for him, and bringeth him before great men” (Proverbs 18:16). Notice that the preceding verse does not state that a man’s toil or works will make room for him. The angels for example, fulfill what they are assigned by God to do with “working” in order to get their needs met. Hebrews 1:14 declares concerning the angels, “Are they not all ministering spirits, sent forth to minister for them who shall be heirs of salvation?” We are not working for a living but using our gifts to fulfill God’s purpose or assignment for our lives. Once we operate in our gifts to fulfill God’s assignment, He will supply every other thing we need!
