Shaped

You were shaped to serve God!

“Your hands shaped me and made me.” Job 10:8

Before God created you, he decided what role he wanted you to play on Earth. You are the way you are because you were made for a specific ministry. Not only did God shape you before your birth, he planned every day of your life to support his shaping process. God uses all of it to mold you for your ministry to others and shape you for your service to him. “We are God’s workmanship, created in Christ Jesus to do good works.” Ephesians 2:10

God’s custom combination of capabilities is called your S.H.A.P.E.:
Spiritual Gifts

Heart

Abilities
Personality
Experience


Spiritual gifts are special God-empowered abilities for serving him that are given only to believers. Have you taken time to discover your gifts? An unopened gift is worthless.

Another word for heart is passion. People rarely excel at tasks they don’t enjoy doing or feel passionate about. God wants you to use your natural interests to serve him and others. Figure out what you love to do – what God gave you a heart to do – and then do it for his glory.
