Determining Spiritual Gifts
I can remember not so long ago taking a test at Church that would help me discover what my spiritual gifts might be. It determined that my gifts were first in the Administration and second in Discernment.
I can remember being disappointed because I thought my gifts would have fallen into a different category. Something like teaching, or serving. Now I can reflect on that test and know that my gifts of the Holy Spirit are intertwined with each other in a way that God perfectly determined while I was formed in my Mother’s womb. They all come together so that I can fulfill the purpose He has for me. Talents that are useful for His glory, not my own.
I also now know that that test wasn’t the end all be all in determining what my gifts were, but to direct me towards what they might be. Many of us have more than one Spiritual Gift. More than one talent that we can use to glorify the Lord.
Now I can say, I’m happy with the gifts He has blessed me with. I see now how they are coming into play in an ever so divine way in ministry.
This week I am featuring Robin from Robinality and her post called “How Does God Plan To Use You” because she goes over the different areas of gifting we may have and how they are useful in serving each other. I just love the scriptures she references too! Please make sure you read her post before linking up.
