How can you receive from God without faith? Faith plays an active role when it comes to receiving from God. It is impossible to please God without faith.
Faith is also a gift of the Holy Spirit. So do you lack faith? Ask the father, the owner of the entire universe, Lord God Almighty, The Lord of Hosts.
Aside faith other gifts of the Holy Spirit includes; Wisdom, speaking in tongues, discerning of spirits, healing, prophesy, knowledge, interpreting of tongues, helping people, administration.
In this article, I will dwell more on faith. Faith is the building block, the foundation on which the other gifts of the Holy Spirit are built.
To every one of us, God has given the measure of faith. Faith grows when you exercise it. How do you exercise faith: by reading Bible stories of what God has done in the biblical times. By listening and reading the testimonies of what God has done in the lives of men.
It is by these gifts of the Holy Spirit you receive from God the blessings He has in stock for you, as always He does exceedingly and abundantly above all we could ask or think of according to the power of the Holy Spirit at work in us.
God also gives gifts in form of talents. The best expression of your talent is to use it or them in serving God and humanity through God.
When you use your talent to the glory of God and to serve humanity the right way, you excel in the use of the talent. Your light shines to the world. You become a reflection of God’s glory to the glory of God.
What gift has God given to you? Use it to the glory of God, serving your fellow people the right way as God directs you to and God will reward you abundantly and even eternally if it pleases Him to do so. Do not forget that it is by faith that you receive from God.
Matthew 5: 14 ‑16; “You are the light of the world. A city set on a hill cannot be hidden. Nor do people light a lamp and put it under a basket, but on a stand and it gives light to all in the house. In the same way, let your light shine before others, so that they may see your good works and give glory to your father who is in heaven.”
God gives you according to your ability. Sometimes when you ask of God, he first enlarges your ability to receive so that you can receive more. And where human ability the stops, God’s grace continues.
You can receive God’s gift and harness it. Keep working on it, keep perfecting on it. Remember to serve God and humanity with them. When asking God for anything you cannot receive anything from God.
