Activate your Spiritual Gifts

The Greek word ‘charismata’ in New Testament word means “gifts of grace” and refers to the gifts or special abilities God has given believers through the Holy Spirit.   These abilities are not our natural gifts, but supernatural endowments.  Once you discover your gift, just like a muscle, can only be developed by use.

Look for opportunities to exercise your these abilities.  Galatians 6:4  Spiritual Gifts can also be imparted and activate by the laying on of hands by the Prophet or Apostle.  They have the authority, to release gifts and abilities as well as destroying yokes off your life.

The Word of God

The word of God is a lamp unto our feet and a light unto our pathway.  It is very important to understand that the gifts of the spirit are the outgrowth of a close relationship with the Lord. It is the basis of everything we will do in life and ministry.

You will never operate effectively in the gifts of the spirit, without knowing the Word of God or an active prayer life The Bible is our weight and balance.  If God tells you to do something or say something, it should always line up with scripture.  We have to develop the fruit of the Spirit in our lives. That is love, peace, joy, patience, meekness, faith, temperance.  

He will perfect those gifts and abilities he had given you, to bring glory to his name.  So study, the word, memorize the word and allow the word to become a part of you.   Most importantly spend time in prayer daily.  Only then, when you open your mouth, people will know you have been with God.  2Timothy 2:15.

  2.

  3. Hello, Adole. First of all, I thank you for your great question. Many people wonder what gifts God has placed in their lives. Too ofter these things are not taught in our churches because the Pastors themselves don’t understand how to recognize or activate or impart spiritual gifts to others.

    Adole, it is not that you do not have a gift or gifts, I may be that you have not recognized them. First of all, if you are filled with the Holy Spirit, God can use you in the gift of prophecy. That would mean either congregational prophecy or to give someone a word of exhortation.

    Our spiritual gifts many time line up with the things we are passionate about.

    1.Do you have a passion to pray, or intercede for others? You may be an intercessor.
    2.Do you find yourself alway sharing and breaking down the Bible? You may be a teacher and preacher.
    3.Do you have dreams that come to pass, or does the Holy Spirit show you things that always come to pass, you may have prophetic gift or be a Prophet.
    4. Do you find that many people your pray for get healed? You may have the gifts of healing.

    Don’t worry too much about what you call your gift, just begin or continue to do what the Lord has placed on your heart to do for God.

    Adole, I believe the main issue for you is a lack of education on the subject. I learned a lot when I attended Prophetic Conferences. I really encourage you to go online and see if there is a prophetic conference you can attend. Another place to get education on finding your gifts is a short-term school of ministry in your area.

    PRAYER: Father, I thank you for Adole and his desire to know more about the wonderful gifts he has placed in his life. Lord, I ask that you refill him with your Holy Spirit and that every gift and ability that you have placed in his life will be released in Jesus name. Where there is confusion, I decree he shall receive clarity as to his purpose and your plan for his life. In Jesus name, Amen!
