1 Corinthians 14:1 KJV
Follow after charity, and desire spiritual gifts, but rather that ye may prophesy.
Gifts / presents are very desirable on one’s birthday. At least, one feels loved and some sense of worth when gifts come from loved ones. So on a special day like this for me, I would have desired some goodies.
But the scriptures got other ideas for me. Reading the very first verse of 1 Cor 14 this dawn hit me straight in the face: …desire spiritual gifts!!!
So for a change, I asked the few people who called me later to wish me a happy birthday to rather speak/prophesy into my life.
Though we desire God to shower us with the good things of life, which we call blessings, it is important we don’t lose thought of who we are and focus too much on material gifts. Apostle Paul’s words are clear: Desire Spiritual gifts. So God’s healing, good health and protection are all gifts though intangible.
Exercise your faith in ways that make others easily notice the difference. Desire prophecy, desire healing, desire every good spiritual gift the Lord has to offer, He is more than willing to release those too to you.
Have a blessed day.
