1 Corinthians 12 (NKJV)
10 to another the working of miracles, to another prophecy, to another discerning of spirits, to another different kinds of tongues, to another the interpretation of tongues.
When we look at scripture we seen there are nine spiritual gifts, surely God has given us one of the gifts to work in us. Through God’s Spirit you will see what gifts are prominent in your life, so you need to be led by the Spirit of God. First believe that you have a gift operating in you. Second we are all born again, Spirit filled believers that has been given the gift of the Holy Spirit. This gifts are for the body of Christ, the church and its members but the Holy Spirit distributes it to each one individually as He wills.
What do you think will determine the flow of the Holy Spirit?
The Spirit looks at our hearts, and by the releasing of our faith the Holy Spirit will operate in us. The measure of our faith will determine how powerfully the Holy Spirit will flow. For example if God has given you the gift of healing you need to exercise that gift by praying for people and by laying on hands. Confirm with the person you are praying for, if he is still experiencing pain. By allowing the Holy Spirit to use you as a vessel, God will bring the healing that is needed in the person’s life. You just need to be obedient to what the Holy Spirit is revealing to you. The more you operate in the flow of the Spirit the more God will use you. God will send people to you for prayer because of the Spirit that is working in you.
Remember that a gift is something that is given to us with love, and we must value it. If we look at 1 Corinthians 13:2 – And though I have the gift of prophecy, and understand all mysteries and all knowledge, and though I have all faith, so that I could remove mountains, but have not love, I am nothing. To be used by God is an honour, and showing love in the way we deal with people brings glory to God. When we become conceited the Spirit of God will be grieved and we will lose our power to hear from God.
Prayer: Father help us to develop the spiritual gift that you have placed inside us, active your Spirit in our lives so that we can be a vessel in your Kingdom. Help us to stay humble and never to become puffed up and allow pride to strip us of our spiritual authority in YOU. In Jesus Name, Amen.
