Today’s devotion is from 1 Corinthians 12:4-7 (NLT)
There are different kinds of spiritual gifts, but the same Spirit is the source of them all. There are different kinds of service, but we serve the same Lord. God works in different ways, but it is the same God who does the work in all of us. A spiritual gift is given to each of us so we can help each other.
The bible says that a spiritual gift is given TO EACH OF US s so we can help each other, that means that you have at least one spiritual gift from the Holy Spirit. You may have more that one, but you have at least one. Ask the Holy Spirit today to reveal to you what that gift is…
Between 1 Corinthians 12 and Romans chapter twelve 17 gifts are listed…the word of wisdom, the word of knowledge, faith, gifts of healings, the working of miracles, prophecy, discerning of spirits, different kinds of tongues, the interpretation of tongues, helps, administrations, ministry, teaching, exhortation, giving, leadership and mercy. There are more that just these 17 gifts, and you have at least one of them! (This does not include the offices of Apostle, Prophet, Evangelist, Teacher and Pastor)
Each gift is every bit as important as the other and there are no lesser or unimportant gifts. A gift from the Holy Spirit is a supernatural gift that operates by the power of the Holy Spirit and has nothing to do with your natural ability. Every gift operates by faith and requires the believer to step out in total trust and reliance upon the Holy Spirit. Right now I am writing under the power and supernatural ability given to me as a gift from the Holy Spirit. What I am writing and how I am saying things are a direct result of the gift operating through me. I have very limited natural ability to do what I am doing, but I have unlimited supernatural ability that operates according to the gift given to me.
The Holy Spirit will reveal your gift to you when you ask Him to, He will train you and teach you how to operate the gift according to the Word and He will teach you how to discern His leading as to when, where and how to use your gift. You have a gift, get ready to start flowing in it by faith, in Jesus Name!
