Operate More, Expect More

“A spiritual gift is given to each of us so we can help each other. To one person the Spirit gives the ability to give wise advice; to another the same Spirit gives a message of special knowledge. The same Spirit gives great faith to another, and to someone else the one Spirit gives the gift of healing. He gives one person the power to perform miracles, and another the ability to prophesy. He gives someone else the ability to discern whether a message is from the Spirit of God or from another spirit. Still another person is given the ability to speak in unknown languages, while another is given the ability to interpret what is being said. It is the one and only Spirit who distributes all these gifts. He alone decides which gift each person should have” 1 Corinthians 12:7-11, New Living Translation

While in prayer, the Lord spoke to my heart and said, “I want My people to operate more in the spiritual gifts I have given them, and begin to expect more from their brothers and sisters in Christ.” As born again believers in Christ Jesus, every one of us have been given a spiritual gift that is designed to help others.

After I gave birth to my youngest son, I had began to have terrible migraine headaches. No matter what I did, the headaches just wouldn’t go away. So a close friend called me and asked how I was doing. I could have lied and said everything was fine, but I chose to open up and let her know about the migraines. Well, before we got off the phone, she asked me if she could pray for me. I said yes, and after she prayed, the migraine headaches completely went away and I haven’t had another one since that day! Praise God! If I would have shut her down and said, “No, no no! You can’t pray for me!” I would have missed out on a blessing! My friend isn’t known for operating in God’s healing power. She’s not on anyone’s healing ministry team that travels the world, but she’s known in the kingdom of God, and I’m thankful the spiritual gift within her greatly blessed me!

My friends, don’t ever become so familiar with someone that you think they don’t have anything to offer you. You may know all about someone’s financial problems, health problems, relationship problems, but that doesn’t mean they can’t bless you. Your sister in Christ may have a prophetic word from God that could totally revolutionize your life! Your brother in Christ could have the gift of miracles! We are to expect more from each other and operate more in the spiritual gifts each of us have received by the Spirit of God!

Prayer: Father God, I thank you for this understanding today! I ask that you please reveal to me the spiritual gifts you have given me. Help me to understand them more, begin to operate in them more, and help me to expect more from my sisters and brothers in Christ. Cause your people to help each other with the gifts you have given to us by your Spirit. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
