And above all things have fervent charity among yourselves: for charity shall cover the multitude of sins. 9Use hospitality one to another without grudging. As every man hath received the gift, even so minister the same one to another, as good stewards of the manifold grace of God.
1 Peter 4: 8-10
Hearing the message on Joseph this Sunday made me realize how important our gifts are. The fact that, globally, many people are all unique in some way only to seemingly waste their gifts is saddening. Others lift themselves up in pride while using their gifts for carnal gain. That is why it is so important as believers that we continue to allow Holy Spirit to flow freely within us. Subduing our flesh at all times so that it continues to be less of us, and more of the Father. The scripture here in 1 Peter illustrates that every man/woman receiving a gift from the Lord is to be used in hospitality.
It is powerful to see Holy Spirit allow Grace to go before us in situations even when we don’t think it’s there. We oftentimes take those small things for granted like driving on a regular street passing other cars going 45-70 mph. It seems like a normal everyday thing to us but one wrong move by someone could be a matter of life and death. Holy Spirit moves every day on our behalf to ensure our protection from not only the carnal matters but also the Spiritual.
That gift of having Holy Spirit on our side as believers is beautiful in itself. The Father is truly amazing. When you fully trust in Him, it’s an awesome thing to be in his presence; being led by His word rather than our actions. The Father not only gifts us Holy Spirit when we invite him in, but through that we open up ourselves even more to receive the impartation of our enabling and spiritual gifts. This is what we call our spiritual make-up; it’s what makes you just as beautiful (or handsome for my men) as you can be. Being your own self and own individual. I thank God daily for the revelation that continues to be shown to me and I encourage you to just praise Elohim for what has taken place in your life. Remind yourselves of who has brought you this far; right up to this very moment that you are reading this. Rejoice, no matter where you are on your journey!
