Benefits of Developing Your Spirit Gifts Part 2
Partnering with the Holy Spirit in the Prophetic
The Holy Spirit is the source of prophetic revelation. However, in order for the Holy Spirit to work with you, you must be willing and intentional about partnering with him. It’s an amazing thing when God entrusts His gifts and abilities to human vessels. It’s a privilege to be used by God because we do not deserve to have this role, coming from the degenerate nature we had. The Bible reminds us, “Like good stewards of the manifold grace of God, serve one another with whatever gift each of you has received” (1
The gift is from the Holy Spirit. We are only playing the role of administering it. By growing in our side of the partnership, we reflect the Father’s heart, His ways, and His purposes in our operation of prophecy. Growing our gift shows that we cherish it
And that we are doing our best in this partnership.
Attributes that you need in the ministry are developed by choice
There are attributes that we need to develop in the prophetic ministry, and these attributes need to be prepared for. Let’s consider the value of preparation with this passage:
In a large house there are utensils not only of gold
and silver but also of wood and clay, some for
special use, some for ordinary. All who cleanse
themselves of the things I have mentioned will
become special utensils, dedicated and useful
to the owner of the house, ready for every good
work. (2 Timothy 2:20-21)
One of the attributes we need to develop is having a Godly character, so that we can honor Jesus. We need to use our gift with integrity. Wisdom is also critical so that we know how to operate in the gift in such a manner that it benefits people that God intended. Moreover, intimacy with God is significant so that our gift is anointed with His presence and we hear God’s voice clearly.
