We celebrated Pentecost, the coming of the Holy Spirit, this past Sunday. This event was the advent of the Holy Spirit being poured out on all believers, whereas in the Old Testament, the Holy Spirit was given to specific people, for specific occasions.
We read in the New Testament that differing gifts were given to various believers by this same Spirit. This phenomena continues to this day. Have you noticed not everyone thinks like you do or has the same set of skills? God has given you the ability to do some things and withheld from you the ability to do others.
The joy is that God has also surrounded you with people to complement your lack, people He has specifically chosen. While it may be annoying at times, rejoice in the place He has placed you. He knows what you need!
