Spiritual Gifts

on June 25, 2012

I have asked God for Spiritual gifts according to His will and grace. My God has granted my request and I received the following gifts: word of wisdom word of knowledge discernment of spirits tongues prophecy healing of the sick faith All these gifts are increasing as I use them. The problem that I am facing with is that I have little opportunity to use them. Most of our gifts are for edification of the church – says the Word- and the church might feel that they 1) do not understand your gifts or 2) do not have a use for your gifts especially if they have a set way of doing things (this is my perception).

 I would like to explain my statement. We have early prayer sessions and I got a sense of people coming to church with stress headaches. This was confirmed because one of of intercessors/leaders was suffering from the same problem. We laid hands on her and prayed for her healing. I relayed my concern to the leadership of the church about the other sick people who will be coming to church. My hope and prayer were that the leaders will call these people to the altar for prayer. My sense was that the Lord want this to be done publicly so that He can be glorified. I have tried before to pray for these people privately and it did not work. When I say it did not work I mean that the Lord was not satisfied with my disobedience and left me with the pain of all these people.

Receiving the word of knowledge about the sick leave me restless and uneasy until something gets done about it – meaning that they are prayed for publicly. This is not part of how my church do things – so now I am faced with a dilema because my going to church make me restless and anxious because of my gifts- if I may use this term- bottled up gifts. I have these gifts but cannot obey God or act on my gift.

 I have prayed to the Lord for help and I have submitted what ever I receive may it be word of knowledge or wisdom to the leadership of the church – but still no rest. I also went through a process of testing whether the gifts is from God or not. I do not understand that we do not help people if we know what is wrong with them. I do not understand that we allow people to go away without with them receiving their healing. I have asked God to give me a word about the matter. The Lord responded by telling me to read Psalm 99 ( see blow). I read this before I went to bed and the Lord highlighted verses 6-7. Again I ask the Lord that if He feels that I can receive guidance like Moses, Aaron and Samuel than He must please instruct me in my sleep like He did with Job. I went to sleep and God spoke the next scriptures into my spirit :

John 15; 16 and John 21:6. I woke up to see what the Word says. 6 Moses and Aaron were among his priests, Samuel was among those who called on his name; they called on the Lord and he answered them. 7 He spoke to them from the pillar of cloud; they kept his statutes and the decrees he gave them. Psalm 99:6-7 (NIV)

16 You did not choose me, but I chose you and appointed you so that you might go and bear fruit —fruit that will last—and so that whatever you ask in my name the Father will give you. John 15:16 (NIV)

 6 He said, “Throw your net on the right side of the boat and you will find some.” When they did, they were unable to haul the net in because of the large number of fish. John 21:6 (NIV)

What do you think the Lord wants to tell me? What I do know is that He is with me like He was with Moses, Aaron and Samuel who were prophets and priest. I do believe that the gifts I receive comes from Him and He will give me a launcing pad. I must follow their ways by keeping the statues and the decrees of the Lord. I believe that if I ask according to His will He hears me for I was chosen and apointed by Him. The King james Bible says ” ordained” by Him. The fruit that I now bear is little in comparison to what He wants me to bear. So the Lord confirms increase in fruit of the spirit. Amen.

 I am not afraid to ask from God. My latest request is that I should be able to hear the spiritual world so that I can assist God’s people. This was granted to me for His glory. Amen. So I will keep on asking in order to heal and deliver His children. From John 21: 6 it looks like I am casting my net on the wrongside or at the wrong time or not in tune with His word- not in obedience with Him. So I will pray and wait on Him to show me where, when and how. I need to do things differently form what I need to – and I need to go in deeper. The disciples were tired by the time the Lord instructed them to cast their net again. They have thrown in their nets- wash them for the next time.

I need to be on the look out for partners because the harvest (large number of fish ) will be to to much for me (read the rest of the text). So right now I am giving the Lord praise for the harvest and the partners – in Jesus name Amen.
