Now there are different gifts, but the same Spirit. There are different ministries, but the same Lord. And there are different activities, but the same God activates each gift in each person.
A demonstration of the Spirit is given to each person to produce what is beneficial: to one is given a message of wisdom through the Spirit, to another, a message of knowledge by the same Spirit, to another, faith by the same Spirit, to another, gifts of healing by the one Spirit, to another, the performing of miracles, to another, prophecy, to another, distinguishing between spirits, to another, different kinds of languages, to another, interpretation of languages. But one and the same Spirit is active in all these, distributing to each person as He wills.
1 Corinthians 12:4-11 HCSB
Father thank You for the gifts I have received and those You have slated for my future. I know that You will always make me earn all that I receive. Amen.
Be grateful for each day, each special moment, and every gift you receive—especially the ones you know you didn’t deserve and the ones you didn’t anticipate. That’s God’s grace pouring down on you. Now stop what you are doing and say, “thank You Father”.
Love your sister in Christ,
