1 Samuel 10:03-07 (Easy to-Read Version)
Samuel said, “Then you will go until you come to the large oak tree at Tabor. Three men will meet you there. They will be on their way to WORSHIP God at Bethel. One man will be carrying three young goats. The second man will be carrying three loaves of bread. And the third man will have a leather bag full of wine. These three men will say hello to you. They will OFFER you two bread offerings RESERVED for PRIESTS, and you will ACCEPT that bread. Then you will go to Gibeath Elohim. There is a Philistine fort in that place. When you come to this town, a GROUP of PROPHETS will come out. These prophets will come down from the PLACE for WORSHIP. They will be PROPHESYING. They will be playing harps, tambourines, flutes, and lyres. Then the Lord’s SPIRIT will COME ON YOU with GREAT POWER. You will be CHANGED. You will be like a DIFFERENT MAN. You will BEGIN to PROPHESY WITH THESE PROPHETS. After that happens, you can do whatever you choose to do, because God will be with you.
Upon receiving the Gift of the Holy Spirit and beginning to grow in intimacy with Him, one begins to desire and crave for the Spiritual gifts. Your continued/earnest desire for these is a pointer of a deepening relationship with (and in) Christ. Calmly absorb this!
Key to note is that, this/these desire(s) and the craving(s) is/are purely ACCEPTABLE in accordance with God’s Mind concerning the Church of Christ and ought to be continually watered.
God wills to have His Church operating in fullness of the Spiritual gifts for the VERY intent of making Christ Real, Plain and Tangible to the world EVEN as the Church waxes stronger. Commit to grow in what the Holy avails and has availed to you beloved!
For many of the Sons/Daughters of God, the limiting barrier towards accessing and operating in these gifts is their company/association; Knowingly or unknowingly, your associations in the matters of FAITH influence your relationship with God. Reflect about this!
For example you can’t continually share together with those against the manifestation of the Holy Spirit and expect to grow in your manifestation/ministration of Him. In a matter of time you will embrace their ideals and quench the Fire of the Spirit!
Beloved, you got to fix your close company and watch as your life in Christ takes a Supernatural turn. Make this change this day! Praise the Lord!
