God's Irrevocable Gifts

For God's gifts and His call are irrevocable. [He never withdraws them when once they are given, and He does not change His mind about those to whom He gives His grace or to whom He sends His call](Romans 11:29 AMP).

Our opening verse in the King James Version reads: "For the gifts and calling of God are without repentance." That means He doesn't take back what He gives you. If He blesses you with the gift of prophecy for instance, He'll never withdraw it. "But what if I feel as though I don't have the gift anymore?" you might ask. It has nothing to do with feelings; it's still there in your spirit; it's up to you to stir up the gift of God in you, and I'll tell you how.

First, make sure you're committed to the Lord; Remember, He's the source of the gift, and He's greater than what He gives. Stay connected to Him and serve Him with wholehearted devotion. Recognize that He's the Lord of your life, not sometimes, but all the time; let your commitment to Him be very clear to you.

Secondly, you must cultivate a prayer discipline. Everything from the Lord is preserved through fellowship with the Holy Spirit. As you spend time to commune often with the Lord in prayer, your spirit will be enriched. Also, pray in tongues more.This will energize, strengthen and inspire your spirit, and bring you into the arena of greater revelations. Praying in other tongues enhances your spiritual consciousness, and helps you gain more clarity in the spirit for walking in the direction of the Lord.

Lastly, learn to study and meditate on the Word. As you study, He'll bring the understanding of the Word to your spirit! And because your spirit has become more sensitive, you'll be able to pick God's message from the Holy Spirit and live a brilliant, ever-glowing victorious life.

Dear Father, my commitment to you is unwavering, and as I pray in tongues and prayerfully meditate on the Word, your spirit is enlightened and rightly positioned to receive inspired thoughts from the Holy Spirit for my strengthening and edification of the Church, in Jesus' Name. Amen.
