October 29 – Your Gifts and Abilities

“As every man hath received the gift, even so minister the same one to another, as good stewards of the manifold grace of God.” I Peter 4:10

You have special God-given gifts and abilities. Some you received at birth, and some you received at rebirth (salvation). God wants you to discover your SPIRITUAL GIFTS and use them as tools of ministry to others and as warfare against the enemy.

The MANIFESTATION GIFTS (I Corinthians 12:4-11) are given by the Holy Spirit to help you minister supernaturally…Word of Wisdom, Word of Knowledge, Faith, Gifts of Healing, Working of Miracles, Prophecy, Discerning of Spirits, Tongues, Interpretation of Tongues.

The MINISTRY GIFTS (Ephesians 4:11) are ministry offices of leadership given by Jesus Christ to equip the saints and to help each one become a functioning member of His body.

The MOTIVATIONAL GIFTS (Romans 12:6-8) are given by God the Father, so that together the saints form a healthy, functioning body of unique individuals. These gifts are often referred to as “character traits.”

PRAY: “Father in heaven, help me to discover the gifts You have given me so that I might exercise them to greater growth and maturity. Thank You for being my partner. In Jesus’ Name, amen.”
