Memorise: But unto them which are called, both Jews and Greeks, Christ the power of God, and the wisdom of God. – 1 Corinthians 1:24

Read: 1 Corinthians 1:21-24 (KJV)

Bible In One Year: Ezekiel 24-26, James 3

MESSAGE:

The gifts of the Holy Spirit are to be used to bring profit to the Kingdom of God by those who have them. They also make the lives of those who possess them profitable. One thing we can learn from the life of Joseph is that the gifts helped him to fulfil his destiny. He was able to interpret the dreams which moved him from prison to the throne.

As a child of God who wants to fulfil destiny, there is something you need to see in order to positively affect your destiny. Until you see it, you may remain on the same spot for long.

Isaiah 40:31 says those who wait on the Lord will not only exchange their weakness for His strength, but also soar like eagles. But with what does eagles fly? They soar with two wings, not one. Any eagle that folds one wing and tries to fly with the other one will lose control of its motion. In the same way, we need two wings to soar: we need signs and wonders, power and glory, gifts and fruits of the Holy Spirit.

Prayer Point: Father, fully equip me to fulfill my destiny in Jesus’ name.

Hymn 6:

1. Our God, our help in ages past,
Our hope for years to come,
Our shelter from the stormy blast,
And our eternal home:

2. Under the shadow of your throne
Your saints have dwelt secure;
Sufficient is your arm alone,
And our defense is sure

3. Before the hills in order stood
Or earth received its frame,
From everlasting you are God,
To endless years the same.

4. A thousand ages in your sight
Are like an evening gone
Short as the watch that ends the night
Before the rising sun.

5. Time, like an ever-rolling stream,
Soon bears us all away;
We fly forgotten, as a dream
Does at the opening day.

6. Our God, our help in ages past,
Our hope for years to come,
Still be our guard while troubles last,
And our eternal home!
