"6 Therefore i remind you to stir up the gift of God which is in you through the laying on of my hands. 7 For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind."
God wants us to start stirring up the gift that he has given us and he wants us to have a spirit of power, of love, and a sound mind. Three options of what God may be saying to you personally....
- Maybe God is saying for you to stir it up and put into action what you believe God has imparted to you. There is a gift in you and you need to stir it up, so step out in Faith and do it!
- Maybe God is saying that you know, you have exercised the gift i've given you for a little while, but now you just put it on the shelf and haven't touched it or tried exercising it. Now is your time to take it off the shelf and to start it up again! Start stirring it back up again!
- Maybe God is saying i want you to take your gifting up a notch. You are doing well with the gifting i have given you and you are exercising it, but now i want you to take it a step up. Stir it up even more than what you have!
For me personally, number 3 is what i feel that God is saying to me. I feel like God is telling me that, "Kriston, you have the gifting that i have given you, speaking in tongues, but now i want you to take it up a notch and to start stirring it up even more. I have also given you the gifting of encouragement and i want you to start stirring that up even more and take it a step farther by encouraging everyone around you as much as you can even when you don't want to or don't feel like it." That was totally God that just said that, i just typed that....haha. So this is what God wants me to do.
Now it's time for me to start looking for ways to stir up my gifts and how to use them more.
WHAT GIFT HAS GOD GIVEN YOU AND WHAT IS HE SAYING TO YOU PERSONALLY? HOW ARE YOU GOING TO STIR IT UP?!!!
