THEME: GIFT FROM GOD
“We have different gifts, according to the grace given to each of us. If your gift is prophesying, then prophesy in accordance with your faith; if it is serving, then serve; if it is teaching, then teach; if it is to encourage, then give encouragement; if it is giving, then give generously; if it is to lead, do it diligently; if it is to show mercy, do it cheerfully.”
-We are all created differently with unique gifts that the Holy Spirit bestows unto us. Gifts like prophecy are given to us according to ones faith and before one receives it, he/she must pursue love and desire spiritual gifts (1 Corinthians 14:1). Gifts like serving, teaching, encouraging, giving, leading and showing mercy; should also be done cheerfully with love. Other spiritual gifts include:- word of wisdom, word of knowledge, faith, working of miracles, discerning of spirits, speaking in different kinds of tongues and the interpretation of tongues (1 Corinthians 12:7-10). The Holy Spirit gives us these gifts as He pleases according to what we are destined to do on earth. It is by the grace of God that the Holy Spirit gives us these gifts and the same grace to use them effectively for His kingdom. Sometimes we veer-off our paths and let other preoccupations distract us. Each one has a purpose geared towards the advancement of the kingdom of God. God reminds us to seek first His kingdom and His righteousness and all other things will be added unto us. These gifts enable us to accomplish our purposes here on earth and anyone who puts his hand on the plough and looks back is not for His kingdom.
We put our trust in You Lord for Your faithfulness endures forever. We submit our hearts and minds to You Holy Spirit, help us to know You more. We delight ourselves in You always Lord, give us the desires of our heart and help us to accomplish our purposes here on earth. We commit all our ways to You Lord and put our trust in You, bring all our prayers and supplications to pass. We choose to rest in You Lord our God, and wait patiently for You, only in You do we obtain favor. Lord You are our Shepherd, we shall not want for You are always with us. Thank You for the gifts You bestowed unto us before the foundation of this world. May Your mighty works be known through our gifts in all the heavens and the earth and may Your name be praised forever. Thank You for Your grace Jesus upon our lives, increase our faith so that we may tap into more spiritual gifts and abilities as You have called each one of us. Open our hearts Holy Spirit so that we may serve Your and those You have called us to serve cheerfully and with love. Thank You for the plans that You have for us, plans to prosper us and not to harm us, plans to give us hope and a future. Amen
