Where do you find a dog with no legs? Right where you left him!
Paul told Timothy to “fan into flame” the gift of God that had been given to him. You’ve got a gift from God, too. You possess something - some quality, some talent, some vision, that God has given you to use for his glory. If fear keeps you from using it, or anything else restrains you, God will find you as a small flicker rather than a flame. He wants you to fan into flame what he has given you to use. Remember that God did not give a spirit of timidity. God has given you a spirit of power, of love and of self-discipline” (2 Tim 1:7; NIV).
If you allow fear, misplaced priorities, indifference, or laziness to keep you from fanning the flame, God will find you right where he left you. If you fan into flame the gift God gave, he will find you blowing and going, bringing glory to him, and on that road that leads to life. That’s Life at Work!
