Gifts – spiritual

1 Corinthians 12:7 “A spiritual gift is given to each of us so we can help each other.” ID-100181357

God gave each person a spiritual gift in order that we could all be a help to one another. 1 Corinthains 12 goes on to say “To one person the Spirit gives the ability to give wise advice, to another the same Spirit gives a message of special knowledge. The same Spirit gives great faith to another, and to someone else the one Spirit gives the gift of healing. He gives one person the power to perform miracles, and another the ability to prophesy. He gives someone else the ability to discern whether a message is from the Spirit of God or from another spirit. Still another person is given the ability to speak in unknown languages, while another is given the ability to interpret what is being said. It is the one and only Spirit who distributes all these gifts. He alone decides which gift each person should have.” (8-11)

God decides the type of spiritual gift we each should have and it usually is something that comes naturally to them. One of my gifting’s is the gift of Knowledge I just seem to know things. I don’t always understand how but its a knowing in my spirit. God provides that for each of us. He chooses what fits each one of us and sometimes you may think, that is so not me, but its exactly what God knows you need and it really is who you are.

God knows us even better than we know ourselves and he knows what gifting’s work best in our lives and will bring out the best in us in order to help others. The key here is we are to use our gifts in order to edify and build each other up. That is how we help others with our spiritual gifts.

Do you know what your gifting is? If not pray and ask God to reveal to you what it is.
