TOPIC: Gifts of the Spirit (II) (Mountain Of Fire and Miracle Ministries, MFM Daily Devotional 11 August 2019)
BIBLE IN ONE YEAR: Psalm 81-83; Romans 11:19-36
FIRE SCRIPTURE: Psalm 19:1-3
MEMORY VERSE: “But unto every one of us is given grace according to the measure of the gift of Christ.” – Ephesians 4:7
The baptism in the Holy Spirit prepares a child of God to receive one or more of the “gifts” of the Holy Spirit. (1 Corinthians 12:4-11). Three of the nine gifts may be categorised as the vocal gifts. They are the gifts of prophesy, diverse kinds of tongues and the interpretation of tongues.

These gifts of the Spirit operate through a believer to enable him or her to do God’s work, to help other people; to live in victory and to build up the body of Christ.
These gifts operate in different ways. The gift of prophecy is given to speak forth God’s Word. It is the prediction through the power of the Holy Ghost about the past, the present or the future of a thing. All true prophecy must agree with the word of God.
The gift of diverse kinds of tongues is a supernatural way of speaking to or for God in more than one language. It is the ability to speak different kinds of tongues, or ability to speak with strange languages. It is different from praying in tongues, or praying in the Spirit. All who have been baptised in the Holy Spirit have the privilege and the ability to pray in tongues, however, not all have the “gift” of tongues.
Interpretation of tongues is the ability from God to explain -or interpret -the message in tongues. It is usually a dual gift used in conjunction with diverse kinds of tongues. Sometimes the message in tongues and the interpretation in tongues may come through different people.
As a believer, if you are not sure God is speaking to you about a matter, wait and God will reveal His will to you: first, in your spirit, and then possibly by confirming it “in the mouth of two or three witnesses” with prophecy. However, get your direction from God, and not from human beings. Psalm 27:11 says, “Lead me in a plain path, O Lord, because of my enemies.” As you do this today, He shall direct you and make all crooked paths straight in your life.
DO EVERYTHING WITHIN YOUR POWER TO OPERATE THE GIFTS OF THE HOLY SPIRIT.
Receive the power to liberate your generation.
- Father Lord, give me utterances of your word, in the mighty name of Jesus.
- My prophecy of prosperity, manifest now, in the name of Jesus.
- Lord Jesus, speak to my situation now, in the name of Jesus.
- Every power with the demonic knowledge of my destiny, be impotent now, in the name of Jesus.
- Any evil mouth chanting incantations against me, die, in the name of Jesus.
- Powers masquerading to harm me, be exposed and be disgraced, in the name of Jesus.
7 I decree and declare good things into my life now, in the name of Jesus.
