”Teaching The World Purposeful Living By Transforming Lives & Impacting Communities”
Dr. Myles Munroe Taught Us That:
“Your gift will make room for you”
How is the fulfillment of vision meant to work in practical terms? Proverbs 18:16 is a powerful statement that reveals the answer: “A man’s gift makes room for him” (NKJV). What you were designed to be known for is your gift. God has put a gift or talent in every person that the world will make room for. It is this gift that will enable you to fulfill your vision. It will make a way for you in life. It is in exercising this gift that you will find real fulfillment, purpose, and contentment in your work. It is interesting to note that the Bible does not say that a man’s education makes room for him, but that his gift does. Somehow we have swallowed the idea that education is the key to success. Our families and societies have reinforced this idea to us, but we will have to change our perspective if we are to be truly successful. Education is not the key to success. Don’t misunderstand me. I believe in education. However, if education were the key to success, then everyone who has a Ph.D. would be financially secure and happy. If you are intelligent but are not exercising your gift, you’re probably going to be poor. If you’re educated but have not developed your talent, you’re likely going to be depressed, frustrated, and tired. You will hate going to work on Monday mornings. Education, in itself, doesn’t guarantee anything. It is your gift that is the key to your success. The second part of Proverbs 18:16 says, “A man’s gift…brings him before great men” (NKJV). You don’t realize that the gift you’re sitting on is loaded. The world won’t move over for you just because you’re smart. However, when you exercise your gift, not only will the world make room for you, but it will also pay you for it. Anyone – yourself included – who discovers his or her gift and develops it will become a commodity. If you’re a young person in high school or college who is planning your career, don’t do what people say will make you a lot of money. Do what you were born to do, because that is where you will make your money. No matter how big the world is, there’s a place for you in it when you discover and manifest your gift. Alexander Graham Bell believed that sound could be converted into electrical impulses and transmitted by wire. No one remembers those who thought he was crazy. We remember only the man who had the vision and created the telephone. If you do things in a halfway manner, you can always find a job somewhere. Yet if you do just enough to get by, you are going to remain simply an employee. However, if you decide that you’re going to find something that is truly yours, then you will fulfill your vision, and you will be remembered by others.
