The common approach to spiritual gifts can easily become self-centered rather than God-centered if you are the one who is taking the initiative to decide on a ministry that you think suits you. God does not ask us to find ministries we think match our giftedness. Often when people focus solely on what they perceive to be their spiritual gifts, they assume that any ministry in their church or life that matches their gifting is something they should undertake. Yet only God can tell us what He wants to do through our lives. We can’t figure that out on our own. We can’t discover God’s activity; God must reveal it to us. We don’t choose what we will do for God; He invites us to join Him where He wants to involve us.

From the Book “Experiencing God” by Henry and Richard BlackabyExperiancing God in May

My Father is still working, and I am working…..I assure you: The Son is not able to do anything on His own, but only what He sees the Father doing. For whatever the Father does, the Son also does these things in the same way. For the Father loves the Son and shows Him everything He is doing. John 5:17, 19-20
