BELIEVING IN YOUR GIFTS

SPIRITUAL DNA

The DNA simply consists of all the information that your body needs to function, reproduce and enable one to live. It is a genetic code hidden within our individual cells and plays a vital role in determining what color of eyes, hair and skin one has. Without the DNA, the reproduction of essential cells, the function of various members of the body and all the intricacies of development would not be viable.

Since the DNA cannot leave the cell, it requires another constituent to work closely with it to make sure that the information is copied and made available to the outside world. The transcription process enables the hidden information within the DNA to be expressed and manifested in a way that the body can utilize and benefit from it.

The entire process of transcription is so complex that it amazes me how our bodies are able to handle it. Enzymes and other proteins that initiate, accelerate and cut at certain locations are all crucial to the success of proper gene expression.

As God formed man in three parts, he placed not only the physical DNA in our bodies but also a spiritual DNA. The spiritual DNA carries information on the kinds of spiritual gifting, blessings and capabilities placed within us. As we start seeking the Kingdom of God, deep calls out to deep and the Spirit of God begins to call forth those things that are hidden, and brings them out into manifestation.

Blessings in the spiritual realm are just as useless without faith as a DNA is without a cell. Our faith enable the whole journey from receiving a promise to walking in the promise become possible. What God has provided in the spiritual realm was not intended to stay in the spiritual realm. Access in a Christian’s life means to be able to grab hold of our promises through faith and see their full manifestation in our lives.

Take for instance, the story of the woman with an issue of blood (Luke 8: 43-48). She stretched out in faith and grabbed hold of the garments of the savior. Jesus actually professed to have felt power depart from Him, because the healing that had been available in the spiritual realm found itself pulled into a hungry vessel.

Access provides a way for every Christian to walk in a life of victory in Christ.
The blessings provided for us in the spiritual realm are accessed through faith and pulled into manifestation by the word of faith.

The Holy Spirit enables us to walk through such a complex process by providing His anointing (power) in our lives. As we put on the new man created for us by God, our spiritual gifts and blessings are then “transcribed” and expressed in a way that edifies and benefits the entire body of Christ.

SPIRITUAL GIFTS

God always gives us any gift or talent for the benefit of others. His blessings in our lives are not so that we can just hoard them to ourselves but so that we can pour them out to others. He never created us closed up, but open so that as stuff comes from him, it can go out into the world around us. We are meant to be a blessing wherever we go.

1 Corinthians 13:7 ” A spiritual gift is given to each of us as a means of helping the entire church.”

God always deals with us first. He strengthens us so that we can strengthen others. 2 Corinthians 1:4 “He comforts us in all our troubles so that we can comfort others. When others are troubled, we will be able to give them the same comfort God has given us.” God heals us and breaks off crazy cycles in our lives so that we can be ready to be used by Him to reach out to a hurting world. So many people out there need God’s help but they don’t see how God can help them. They don’t understand that His love for them caused him to give his only Son, Jesus for them. They don’t know how to reach out to God and receive His love and help because they have messed up mindsets about God.

Being prepared by God to reach out to the world around us means changing our mindsets and being transformed by His word. We have to be able to see things as God sees them and deal with them according to His way. God has a great future for us and we must be willing to embrace it through utilizing our talents and gifts.

WHO AM I and WHY AM I HERE?

We all want to know where we came from and why we are here. According to Jeremiah 1:5, before God formed us in our mother’s womb, He knew us. We are not an accident and we do have a purpose on this earth. Part of knowing our purpose requires us to get reconnected with God since it’s tied in with Him. God loves us and His plans for us are to prosper us and not to harm us (Jeremiah 29:11). The greatest realization for any human being is the great love God has for each one.
Knowing your purpose requires an understanding of God’s heart for your life.

When you realize that God never created you to suffer or be nothing in this world, then you can start seeking answers with an optimistic outlook. God has given us the talents and the gifting we need to accomplish our purpose. He would never expect one to invent things and then not give him/her the creativity required to do so.

In the book of Exodus 35, God required the Israelites to bring offerings of gold, silver and other materials needed to build the tabernacle of the Lord. The Tabernacle was the dwelling place of the presence of the Lord that only the priest could enter and offer sacrifices for the people. When it came to the actual building of the tabernacle, God required only specific people to do the labor. He anointed (filled with power) specific people for the job and gave them what they needed to do the work ahead of them. One of the guys God called was named Bazalel. God filled him with “the Spirit of God, in wisdom and understanding, in knowledge and all manner of workmanship, to design artistic works, to work in gold and silver and bronze, in cutting jewels for setting, in carving wood, and to work In all manner of artistic workmanship”( Exodus 35:30-35).

Even though every person contributed in bringing gold, silver, bronze and other materials, notice that only specific people were anointed for the job to build the tabernacle. Sometimes we get so caught up in following the dreams of other people that we miss our path and get frustrated doing what we were not meant to do. God has fully equipped us to do what He created us to do.

One way to know if you’re walking in your purpose is to ask yourself if you struggle doing what you do. God is so amazing in that He empowers his servants in fulfilling their destiny. He gives ideas, knowledge, wisdom, creativity, and all manner of workmanship to all his children. The best place to find out your purpose is in the presence of God. He brings out those talents to the open and leads you along the best path for your life.
