Exercise the gifts that I have given you already, says the LORD. They will expand and be more productive as you use them. Do not do as the one who hid his one talent in the ground but take what I have entrusted you with and invest it into My kingdom. You desire a double portion, and that comes with use, not more gifting. You will experience expansion and growth as well as experience and maturity as you fully engage in the things that I have assigned for you to do with what I have placed in your hands, says the LORD.
Be faithful in the few things, says the LORD. For it is your faithfulness and endurance that I Am looking at, not the size of the task. I want you to give Me your full self, your full sacrifice, and do not look for others to applaud you. Seek My approval. For those things that seem so small and insignificant that you do in secret, that no one is even aware of are the very things I will openly reward you openly for. Do everything onto Me with all your heart and strength, and know that I have taken notice of you, not just what you are doing. A wonderful promotion awaits My faithful servants who will be a peculiar treasure and pleasure onto Me, says the LORD.
