It's not automatic. Just because we have been given certain gifts or talents, it does not mean they will spontaneously bloom and come to fruition. We need to play our part – rekindle them or stir them up day by day.

And the reward for utilising the gifts God has bestowed on us is MORE work, MORE responsibility. He will enlarge the cords of our tent. Our life will impact and influence more and more people, even those in faraway places.

We will be like a tree providing shelter, nourishment and succour to many who come to perch on our branches.

Rivers of living water will gush forth from our lives as we become channels of His blessing. It’s torrential and unstoppable.

God will do so many great things in our lives – what we cannot possibly think or imagine!

But only if we stay close to Him, like the branches which remain connected to the vine, drawing nutrients from it.

                                                                 Fan into flames 


2 Timothy 1:6
For this reason I remind you to fan into flame the gift of God, which is in you through the laying on of my hands.

Philippians 2:12
Therefore, my beloved, as you have always obeyed, not as in my presence only, but now much more in my absence, work out your own salvation with fear and trembling;

Matthew 25: 21, 29
His lord said to him, ‘Well done, good and faithful servant; you were faithful over a few things, I will make you ruler over many things. Enter into the joy of your lord.’
‘For to everyone who has, more will be given, and he will have abundance; but from him who does not have, even what he has will be taken away.

Isaiah 54: 2
Enlarge the place of your tent,
And let them stretch out the curtains of your dwellings;
Do not spare;
Lengthen your cords,
And strengthen your stakes.

Psalm 2:8
Ask of Me, and I will give You
The nations for Your inheritance,
And the ends of the earth for Your possession.

Psalm 1:3
He shall be like a tree
Planted by the rivers of water,
That brings forth its fruit in its season,
Whose leaf also shall not wither;
And whatever he does shall prosper.

Jeremiah 17:8
For he shall be like a tree planted by the waters,
Which spreads out its roots by the river,
And will not fear when heat comes;
But its leaf will be green,
And will not be anxious in the year of drought,
Nor will cease from yielding fruit.

John 7:38
He who believes in Me, as the Scripture has said, out of his heart will flow rivers of living water.

Ephesians 3:20
Now to Him who is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that works in us …

John 15:5, 16
“I am the vine, you are the branches. He who abides in Me, and I in him, bears much fruit; for without Me you can do nothing.

“You did not choose Me, but I chose you and appointed you that you should go and bear fruit, and that your fruit should remain, that whatever you ask the Father in My name He may give you.
