The Apostle Paul makes it clear that God is aware of all of the data, and years of service showing how pure and sincere the faith is that runs deep in young Timothy’s family; however, the Apostle Paul also makes it clear to Timothy that he has to come into his own if he plans on keeping the family legacy alive and well. 2 Timothy 1:5-6, “When I call to remembrance the unfeigned faith that is in thee, which dwelt first in thy grandmother Lois, and thy mother Eunice; and I am persuaded that in thee also. 6) Wherefore I put thee in remembrance that thou stir up the gift of God, which is in thee by the putting on of my hands. Yeah, the Father is not going to dump faith operations on us just because of where we come from, but he will give us a chance to come as far as we want if we are willing to just start where we are with what we have. In the Godhead team, we are talking about the greatest management team to brace creation; the Godhead will move you along at a pace that will allow you to become all that the Father will need you to be. I hear this statement all the time, I don’t know what gifts I have, or what I am suppose to do to be gifted. These are good concerns to have especially if your background did not afford you any teachings in that area. If you had been raised with the teachings of being gifted, and being able to operate in those gifts, it would not seem so scary. And then one day you find yourself surrounded by people with gifts, and as they are operating in these gifts, it leaves you wanting to be like, Pastor Mike. I went to Church and Sunday school all my life up until I left home for college at 18, and you had better had a sick reason if you even thought about not going to Church for Sunday school, and Sunday Services. When I look back at the foundation training that I received on the Gospel as the good news, Jesus as my Lord and Savior, and all of the ongoing BTU’s at local and district; all I will say is thank you God for them all, and I would not replace them for they were what I needed for my later purpose in God. And once I was lead of God to a Church where the gifts, and walking by faith were just the way it is, my foundation from my earlier training from a child into being a young adult, proved to serve me well.
We can just put ourselves in Timothy’s place, and eat up all the direction given to him from the Apostle Paul for helpful ways, to push forward in the gifts that we have received from God. 2 Timothy 1:6, is a good place to start if you need a jumpstart in the operation of your gift; and this is with the knowledge that you have received the Baptism of the Holy Ghost in order for him to start to gift you if he wills. And 2 Timothy 1:6 reads, “Wherefore I put thee in remembrance that thou stir up the gift of God, which is in thee by the putting on of my hands.” I am sure that your Pastor has a service where the leadership can move in the Gifts to service any member needs, pray with you, and laid hands on you to release the anointing upon you for you to go forth in the area of your gifting. And Here in 2 Timothy 1:5, the Apostle Paul out right tells Timothy that he remembers him having the faith in him: “When I call to remembrance the unfeigned faith that is in thee.” The other thing that really gives you the confirmation of your gifting is when you move in it when gathered together with the saints, unaware. This is when the Spirit will just move on you to give a word of edification when you were just standing there in the midst available for him to use. Your Church or ministry leadership will recognize your coming forth, and give you a word of support, and edification in front of the saints to really root your belief in your gift. And you may have been in a prayer line pre-knowledge of gifting, and the Minister was lead of God to just edify you with a word of knowledge that you were endowed with a certain gift already. The Apostle Paul says this could very well be the way you first find out, and then to own up to it in order to grow in it: 1 Timothy 4:14-15, “Neglect not the gift that is in thee, which was given thee by prophecy, with the laying on of the hands of the presbytery. 15) Meditate upon these things; give thyself wholly to them; that thy profiting may appear to all.” So yeah, “The Father Doesn’t Stereotype or Profile Our Outcome; It’s Determined On How Our Faith By Faith Be Willing: you will become your own special gifted creation made by God, and you will be the only one of your mold. It doesn’t matter how strong of a gift that runs in your family, the Father has a special link to his over all Will that only your gifting can fulfill. So let’s trust the process of the management of the Godhead along with your leadership, and let’s get the gifting on. lol. There I go again.
The Father Still Does Love To Do The Body Good.
