Topic: The Gift Of Faith

SCRIPTURE: 1 Corinthians 12:9 (AMPC)
To another [wonder-working] faith by the same [Holy] Spirit…

I believe there are certain individuals to whom God gives the gift of faith for specific occasions such as a dangerous missionary trip or a challenging situation. When this gift is operating in people, they are able to comfortably believe in God for something others would see as impossible. They have total faith for something others would be daunted by or even terrified of.

A person operating with a gift of faith must be careful not to think others who do not have this gift are faithless, for when the gift of faith is operating in an individual, God is giving that person an unusual portion of faith to ensure that His purpose is accomplished.

He can be used by God to bring courage and comfort to others, but he must remain humble and thankful for what God has given him. Romans 12:3 (AMPC) says, For by the grace (unmerited favour of God) given to me I warn everyone among you not to estimate and think of himself more highly than he ought…but to rate his ability with sober judgment, each according to the degree of faith apportioned by God to him.

God will always give us the faith we need to face whatever we have to face. However, the gift of faith makes a person unusually bold. Anyone who operates in it must be sensitive to realize that this boldness is a gift from God and always give Him thanks for it.

Prayer Starter: Father God, thank You for every gift you have given me. Thank You for faith, for boldness and for Your grace. In Jesus’ name, amen.
