PROPHETIC WORD: I pray that God will find you a worthy servant, in the name of Jesus.
In 1 Corinthians 12: 8-11, the nine gifts of the Holy Spirit are enumerated. These nine gifts are classified into three major categories namely: the Revelation gifts, the Inspiration gifts and the Power gifts. The Revelation gifts are word of wisdom, word of knowledge, and discerning of spirits. These reveal information.
The Inspiration gifts are gift of prophecy, diverse kinds of tongues, and interpretation of tongues. These inspire communication.
The Power gifts are gift of faith, gift of healing and gift of miracles. These ones are for signs, wonders and working of miracles.
I want you to understand that the gifts of the Holy Spirit are given by God as He wills. No man can choose what he wants. He gives you what He wants you to have for His own purpose. The Bible says that there are diversities of gifts, differences of administrations and diversities of operations but the same Spirit. These gifts are given to serve God, to accomplish things and for common good and profit (1 Corinthians 12:4-7).
Remember what happened in the case of Moses and Aaron. When Moses complained that he was not capable due to his speech impairment, God said, He would make Aaron his mouthpiece. You would wonder why God didn’t simply give the assignment to Aaron (Exodus 4: 10-16). But He is God and knows best.
Beloved, the question is: what is your own gift? Have you discovered the gift of God in your life? If your answer is yes, what have you done or are you doing with it? These gifts are given for work, and not for play. At the end of the day, there are rewards but you must give account first of your work before the reward is given.
Revelation 22:12 says, “And, behold, I come quickly; and my reward is with me, to give every man according as his work shall be.” I encourage you to pray, identify God’s gift in your life and put them to good use to serve God, His Kingdom and mankind. God bless you as you heed this piece of advice, in Jesus’ name.
