Gifts of God

The gifts of God consist of:
  1. A spirit of boldness;
  2. A spirit of power;
  3. A spirit of love;
  4. A spirit of a sound mind, understanding, and judgement.
He did not give us a spirit of fear to act in a cowardice manner, but of the above mentioned.  God has donated an inherent power in us.  This power (of which God is the source) is already in our DNA and we need to reproduce.  It is our responsibility to actively and constantly continue to reproduce it.  It's like a dynamo:  it needs to be in motion to produce power.  To be able to function like a dynamo, you need to stir up into flame the gift of God in your own life.

The gift of God that is in you

Be faithful even in afflictions according to the power of God in you.  These gifts are referred to as a fire in you, which, if not frequently stirred up and more fuel added, will go out.  It is your duty as Christian to kindle up this fire and to add fresh fuel to it.  Should you choose to neglect these gifts, it will go away.  Even if we don't use it properly or we don't replenish it with continued grace and power from the Holy Spirit anointing, it will become powerless and useless and fail in their purpose. 

For this reason we need a constant supply of the Spirit - many fillings.  For this very same reason Jesus Himself had to live in prayer and receive a constant supply of the Holy Spirit.

Taking ownership of your life

Sometimes we find ourselves in the midst of fog.  This fog at times, becomes so thick that we can't even think or see clearly what is ahead of us.  We become an observer of our own life instead of living it.  The fog includes man infused fear, obligations to others and guilt.  To this we add negative perceptions as we experienced it.  We shift into a mode of "I want" and the spiral of this experience sucks you in.  You choose to stay in your cocoon:  your comfort zone and are too scared to take a step outside of it.

Break open this cocoon of yours, reform your thoughts in order to transform and conform to the new.  Give structure to your life or what you want to be.  Add positive experiences to your thoughts, climb out of your head and into your spirit which connect to the Holy Spirit.  Stop the worrying and be silent for a moment or two before God and let God be the one who transform you to conform to the new.  Shift your mode to "I am".  I am a child of God who cares for me and loves me dearly.  Your "I am" can be anything you want it to be, but in a positive mindset.
