When someone acknowledges the gifts that God has placed in me, I tend to downplay there complements. I don't want to take credit for what God did, I am just a vessel. I have seen all too often where a person receives praise or complements on gifts that God gave them and let all of it go to there head. They start out humble but somewhere along the way they forget who gave them the gift from the beginning. That is a mindset I do not want to take on. It's not about me, never was and never will be. As long as you are moved closer to God by the words he gives me, then that is all I need to know.
However it is important that we know what God placed in us so we can have the confidence to move when we need to move. Paul acknowleged God in every aspect of is live but at the same time, he wrote and spoke with the confidence of knowing who he is and what God has gifted him to do.
Yes we should know the gifts God has given us but also remember that we are just empty jars of clay without him filling us up.
Much Love & God bless
