TOPIC: Gifts of the Spirit (III) (Mountain Of Fire and Miracle Ministries, MFM Daily Devotional 12 August 2019)
BIBLE IN ONE YEAR: Psalm 84-86; Romans 12
FIRE SCRIPTURE: Matthew 28:18-20
MEMORY VERSE: “But ye shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you.” – Acts 1:8a
The last category of the spiritual gifts is known as the power gifts. They include gift of faith, gift of healing and the working of miracles.
Although, the Bible tells us that ‘God has dealt to every man according to the measure of faith (Romans 12:3). However, the gift of faith is a special gift or ability which God impacts to some people to do exploits or to reach out in faith to do great works for Him, for example, to evangelise in other nations. Faith is exhibiting absolute trust in the work and Person of God.
The gift of healing is manifested in a situation whereby a person is healed by the power of God. This may be through the laying-on of hands, use of water or anointing oil, confession of Scriptures or through the application of handkerchiefs or aprons. The gift of working of miracle is a supernatural ability given by God to serve others as a channel of God’s miracle-working power. The working of miracles may happen as a result of a person’s faith, or simply because of the sovereignty of God: either way, it is a gift from God!
The working of miracles is a situation whereby a person ordained by God suspends the law of nature to supernaturally effect a work that is uncommon, like raising the dead. Working of miracles is to glorify God and to demonstrate His power, and not to glorify man.
As a child of God, you have the gift(s) of the Holy Spirit in you, latent, like a dormant giant. You have to prayerfully discover this/these gift(s), hone, develop and use it/them to counsel, to deliver, to heal and to solve diverse problems and challenges in the lives of people -especially the people of God. When these gifts are used in the right way, through the wisdom and power of God, it projects one into the realm of the miraculous and leads to the fulfilment of destiny.
The move of the Holy Spirit in the lives of many fathers of faith such as Charles and John Wesley, George Whitfield, Kathryn Khulman, Joseph Ayo Babalola and so on makes it abundantly clear that the gifts of the Spirit are the children’s meat. God is willing and able to give us these gifts in the latter days, if we can only but ask and seek earnestly for them from Him (Matthew 7:7).
NOTHING UNMASKS A MAN LIKE HIS USE OF POWER.
Receive the power to fulfil your destiny and impact your world for Christ.
1. I receive power to move forward, in the name of Jesus.
2. Power to ascend on high, fall upon my life, in the name of Jesus.
3. Blessings of Abraham shall be my portion, in the mighty name of Jesus.
4. Warring angels of God, disrupt and destroy all the works of darkness mounted against me, in the name of Jesus.
5. Every household wickedness trying to rearrange my destiny, lose your hold, in the name of Jesus.
6. The enemy will not convert my riches to rags, in the name of Jesus.
7. I receive power for divine acceleration, in the name of Jesus.
