The Lord showed me a picture of a garage. I thought “what’s so great about a garage?” Then He began to expound upon it in ways that only He can. Imagine somebody gives you a car, a luxurious car, a Rolls Royce, a Lamborghini, or a Bentley, you name it, and they tell you that it is yours so use it. However, instead of using it you decide to put it in the garage never to be seen again because you don’t want it to get nicked or worn down. The Lord says that this car represents the talents and gifting that He has given many people. instead of using it and Blessing others with this wonderful gift, they chose to hide it thinking they are protecting it or because they are too scared to Trust that the gift they have is meant to help others, they hide (sit on) it.
As the car sits, it begins to collect dust and get rusty. The car begins to deteriorate. A car is designed for motion, it is designed to be used, not to be in a state of stagnation. As it is with you, God has given you talents and gifts, specific to you. You are a Rolls Royce, a Jaguar, a Bentley, designed for the world to see. Don’t let your unbelief or mindset keep what God has placed in you from getting out. It is not about you, it is about the people you were meant to influence with your gifts. God is saying He will call into account the talents and gifts He has given you and see what you have done with them. Will you Trust God to mold you and use you or will He find your gifts hidden away in a garage left to rot?
