ACTIVATING GOD’S GIFT IN YOU!
Therefore I remind you to stir up the gift of God which is in you through the laying on of my hands (2 Timothy 1:6).
A Christian is admonished to constantly activate the gift of God in him. To activate simply means to stir, to rouse, to motivate, etc. In the opening text, Apostle Paul reminded Timothy his beloved son in the Lord to stir up the gift of God in his life which he received through the laying on of his hands. This shows that every Christian has the gift of God in his life which he needs to constantly activate. Activating God’s gift in life is a spiritual exercise which every Christian is expected to participate in order to constantly renew his gifts in life.
When you study the life of Samson in the Old Testament, you will discover what it means to activate the gift of God in one’s life. Before Samson was deceived by Delilah and his hair shaved off, he constantly activated the gift of God in his life. We saw this when he killed a lion with his bare hands (Judges 14:6); slain a thousand men with a jawbone of a donkey (15:16); and uprooted the two giant gates of Gazite city (16:3). Therefore, every Christian is hereby admonished to constantly activate God’s gift in his life and ministry.
As a Christian, God wants you to constantly activate His gift in your life. That is the only way you can remain victorious and overcome life’s challenges. That is the reason why the Bible tells us in Jude 1:20, “But you, beloved, building yourselves up on your most holy faith, praying in the Holy Spirit.” A Christian is admonished to constantly activate God’s gift in his life by praying in the Holy Ghost. Praying in tongues is one of the most effective ways to activating God’s gift in one’s life as a Christian.
Daily Tip: A Christian should learn to constantly activate the gift of God in him by the power of the Holy Spirit. Shalom!
Golden Text: Then the Spirit of the Lord will come upon you, and you will prophesy with them and be turned into another man (1 Samuel 10:6).
