FAN IT INTO FLAMES
2 Timothy 1:6 – This is why I remind you to fan into flames the spiritual gift God gave you when I laid my hands on you. (NLT)
Yesterday we learnt about Paul’s mentorship qualities when he wrote to Timothy. In today’s Bible reading, we will learn from Paul’s words. The first thing to note is Paul’s reminder to Timothy about the impartation of the Holy Spirit he received through the laying of hands. There is always a flow of power when a minister of God imparts unction on the people who are willing. When you find a genuine spiritual vessel, yearn for their impartation.
The second lesson is that Paul encouraged Timothy to use the gift he received from the impartation. Every child of God imparted through salvation, the word, or laying of hands receives at least one spiritual gift. 1 Corinthians 12:8-10 reveals the different types of spiritual gifts: wisdom; word of knowledge; faith; healing; working of miracles; prophecy; discernment; diverse tongues; and interpretation of tongues. Whatever gift you possess, if you don’t fan it into flames, it will die! We must always rekindle our fire for God to remain productive with our spiritual gift.
Beloved, if you have not identified your gift or failed to fan it into flames, I encourage you to discover your gift and use it. No single person is without a gift or talent, except those who are not yet saved. If necessary, accept Jesus as your saviour and ask the Holy Spirit for a baptism of power. He will possess you with the gift, and you will be able to please God and win souls for His kingdom as a result of it.
Hymn: Spirit of the Living God—Daniel Iverson (1926)
1. I decree a fresh baptism of the Holy Ghost over my life (Ask for the gift of the Spirit).
1. I command all my lost gifts and talents to be restored.
2. Any pot of affliction currently in use, for my sake. Destroy your owners!
3. Pray in the Holy Ghost concerning today!
YOU WILL HEAR GOOD NEWS
