MFM Mountain Top Life Daily Devotional 10 August 2019 By Dr. D.K Olukoya – Gifts of the Spirit (I)
TOPIC: Gifts of the Spirit (I) (Mountain Of Fire and Miracle Ministries, MFM Daily Devotional 10 August 2019)
BIBLE IN ONE YEAR: Psalm 79-80; Romans 11:1-18
FIRE SCRIPTURE: 1 Corinthians 12:1-11
MEMORY VERSE: “The secret things belong unto the LORD our God: but those things which are revealed belong unto us and to our children for ever, that we may do all the words of this law.” – Deuteronomy 29:29
The revelation gifts of the Holy Spirit equip the Church to express the fullness of God’s love to the world. These gifts are given to the Church to benefit both believers and unbelievers. The gifts represent the work God does through the life of a believer in a given situation to demonstrate His supernatural power.
The three revelation gifts as listed in 1 Corinthians 12:7-11 are word of wisdom, word of knowledge and the discerning of spirits.
The word of wisdom is the revelation through the power of the Holy Spirit about the future of a person, a place or thing. The gift of God in a believer to identify the power behind a situation or in a person is known as the discernment of spirits.
After listing the spiritual gifts, the Apostle Paul added this critical statement: “But all these worketh that one and the selfsame Spirit, dividing to every man severally as he will.” (1 Corinthians 12:11). As you learn about the gifts, remember that the Spirit of God is the source of these gifts, and they are manifested to bring God glory.
Some of these gifts are mentioned only once in the Bible and a thorough explanation of them is not given. To gain an understanding of the gifts, one must rely on a study of the individual terms, an accurate interpretation of the Greek words used, and wisdom from the Holy Spirit (John 14:26).
These supernatural, spiritual gifts are awe-inspiring and are to be coveted by all believers. As instruments of God’s work, Christians must seek to walk in the power of the Holy Spirit and to submit to God through these gifts, instead of yielding to the influence of their sinful natures. When the Holy Spirit works among believers and bestows these spiritual gifts, there will be peace and orderliness, not strife and confusion. God will be glorified and the Church will be edified.
GROWTH IN THE REVELATIONAL KNOWLEDGE OF THE LORD HAS A PRICE. WHEN YOU PAY IT, YOU WILL GET THE REWARD.
The Lord will reveal ancient secrets that will guide your future.
1. O Lord my Father, reveal Yourself to me now, in the name of Jesus.
2. The power to know divine secrets of God, fall upon me now, in the name of Jesus.
3. Every gadget of frustration afflicting my life, scatter now, in the name of Jesus.
4. Evil cloud, blocking my miracles, clear away, in the name of Jesus.
5. O Lord, remove spiritual cataract from my eyes, in the name of Jesus.
6. Father, make your way plain before my face, in the name of Jesus.
7. I refuse to fall under the manipulation of the enemy, in the name of Jesus.
