Question: How does a man make himself available? How long does he wait for God? He may have gifts but what if he is never used in his church. Shouldn't your gifts make room for you? (Proverbs 18:16)

Answer: There is no universal answer to this question. God gives gifts for ministry to every Spirit-filled believer. Ideally, leaders should recognize these gifts and help each believer develop them. Unfortunately, some leaders do not understand this as being part of their role.

In general our counsel is to keep seeking the Lord and developing your gifts the best you can. Always be on the look-out for opportunities to serve the assembly. Keep a right spirit and always demonstrate the highest integrity. God can open doors in unexplected places.
