You Are Gifted By God (1)

You Are Gifted By God (1)

‘The same Spirit works all these things, distributing to each one individually as He wills.’ 1 Corinthians 12:11 NKJV

The Bible says, ‘There are diversities of gifts, but the same Spirit.’ (1 Corinthians 12:4 NKJV) The word ‘gifts’ comes from the Greek word ‘charis’, which literally means grace. That means you cannot earn, qualify for, work for, or deserve a spiritual gift. The Holy Spirit gives them to each of us ‘individually as He wills’. They are not something you get by study, practice, or inheritance. They are not highly developed natural talents. They are supernatural endowments that enable you to carry out God’s will in God’s way. And you will never discover God’s way until you realise that you are not meant to serve Him by drawing on your own abilities, but by depending upon the indwelling power of His Spirit. In a sense, you are like a glove; the Holy Spirit within you fills that glove, moves it and accomplishes through it what needs to be done.

A young pastor once said to an older pastor, ‘I’m discouraged because God expects the very best from me, and as hard as I try, I can’t always give it to Him.’

The older pastor said, ‘Son, God expects nothing from you but failure!’ Then he added. ‘But He has given the Holy Spirit to you so that you need not fail.’

Jesus told His disciples, ‘He who abides in Me, and I in him, bears much fruit; for without Me you can do nothing.’ (John 15:5 NKJV) The secret to success is not just in activity, but in abiding! Your job is to learn the ways of God, and lean on the power of God.

SoulFood: Is 8–11, Matt 9:1–13, Ps 89:38–52, Pr 3:1–2

Open Heavens
for Thursday, December 19, 2013
by Pastor E.A Adeboye


It is one thing to receive the anointing and another to keep growing on it. There are people who had the anointing, but today, everything has virtually ebbed out. It is possible to connect with the Holy Spirit and to continue to flow in the power of the anointing even at increasing levels. If this is your desire,...More

Genesis 37:31-36

History and cover-ups? Eternity will uncover all. Read what the wicked children of Jacob did to their aged father in today's main text when they sold their blood brother Joseph into slavery and cooked up a story to tell the old man using that same coat of love he made for his dearest...More
