Power Gifts – Gifts that DO something!

1. Gift of Faith
The Gift of Faith is also sometimes called Special Faith or Wonder Working Faith. It’s first important to understand that there’s a difference between the faith that we all have and the Gift of Faith. Remember, these gifts are as the Spirit-wills, not as we will. We can all exercise faith in God’s Word to believe for a miracle anytime we want! We can develop our own personal faith, and make it stronger. The Gift of Faith is Gods Faith on a Believer for a time so that they can receive a miracle. One minister said the Gift of Faith is like God unscrewing your head, and dumping out all the doubt and unbelief, and then filling you up with high-octane, unleaded Gods Faith!

2. Gifts of Healing
The Gifts of Healing is the supernatural ability to minister healing to other peoples physical body. Scripture does not exactly explain why it is called “Gifts of Healing”, but it is commonly accepted that it is because some people are used specially with certain types of illnesses. Not all divine healing is done through the Gifts of Healing. For example, the Bible says that the Word of God is health to our flesh. We can all receive healing in our own bodies through the Word and faith, however that is not the same Gifts of Healing. Someone operating in this Gift is able to minister healing to others with ease.

3. Working of Miracles
A miracle can be defined as a supernatural intervention by God in the ordinary course of nature. We can all receive a miracle through prayer and faith in Gods Word. However, the Gift of Working Miracles actively performs a miracle. When this Gift is on you, you’ll walk on water when you should be sinking! With this Gift you’ll see the miraculous in manifestation in your home, business and on the streets!
