Conclusion:-
A modern army is fitted with a strategic mix of various weapons to maximize it’s effectiveness in fulfilling it’s purpose. Some soldiers receive a rifle and some are given pistols or ride in a tank armed with a cannon and machine guns. Others operate missiles, jet fighters, bombers, or ships. To win the war, it takes the unified effects of all these weapons, operated by the shared efforts of all the variously equipped soldiers. God, as the wise Commander-in-Chief in our spiritual warfare, has likewise given to each of his children in the body of Christ spiritual gifts so that we can work together to be effective in fulfilling his will. And, as in a physical war, if Christian “soldiers” work together and use their gifts, the task of the church on earth will be accomplished.You can’t  seat,pray and expect the Holy Spirit to move, if you are not moving in faith towards manifesting the spiritual gifts within you!! You have to move and act according to the leading of  the Holy Spirit.

In Genesis 1:2  The earth was without form, and void; and darkness was on the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God was hovering over the face of the waters.

We learn from the above  scripture the Holy  Spirit was hovering but He did not do anything until God spoke.After you have prayed, fasted and studied  God’s word move in faith and the Holy Spirit will do the rest of the job,He is the Power behind manifesting the gifts within you.

The gifts are not medals of Honor for you to possess them but they are tools for us to use in fulfilling God’s purpose here on earth

Romans 12:6-8

Having then gifts differing according to the grace that is given to us, let us use them: if prophecy, let us prophesy in proportion to our faith; or ministry, let us use it in our ministering; he who teaches, in teaching; he who exhorts, in exhortation; he who gives, with liberality; he who leads, with diligence; he who shows mercy, with cheerfulness.
God Desires The Best For You.
