More on Wisdom

The Holy Spirit is often forgotten but he is responsible for all our gifts. Not sure about that?

Take a look here.

God’s various gifts are handed out everywhere, but they all originate in God’s Spirit. God’s various ministries are carried out everywhere; but they all originate in God’s Spirit.

God’s various expressions of power are in action everywhere; but God himself is behind it all.

Each person is given something to do that shows who God is: Everyone gets in on it, everyone benefits. All kinds of things are handed out by the Spirit, and to all kinds of people! The variety is wonderful:

  • wise counsel
  • clear understanding
  • simple trust
  • healing the sick
  • miraculous acts
  • proclamation
  • distinguishing between spirits
  • tongues
  • interpretation of tongues

All these gifts have a common origin, but are handed out one by one by the one Spirit of God. He decides who gets what, and when. (1 Corinthians 12:4-11, MSG)

So it is best that we accept the gifts the Holy Spirit has given us and work to use them as God intended.

Prayer- Father, you are the best of the best and we thank you for giving the Holy Spirit the right to give us the gifts we needed to shine at your work. Amen.
