God’s various expressions of power are in action everywhere; but God himself is behind it all. Each person is given something to do that shows who God is: Everyone gets in on it, everyone benefits. All kinds of things are handed out by the Spirit, and to all kinds of people! The variety is wonderful: wise counsel

clear understanding

simple trust

healing the sick

miraculous acts

proclamation

distinguishing between spirits

tongues

interpretation of tongues. All these gifts have a common origin, but are handed out one by one by the one Spirit of God. He decides who gets what, and when. (1 Cor 12:4) I remember once having lunch with Michael Barling. He said: “I was at a ‘churches together’ meeting on the Gifts of the Spirit yesterday, when a senior pastor from (another church) asked me: “Well Michael, how is The Spirit manifesting Himself at your church?” Healing’s? Tongues? Miraculous acts? …. Michael said he was affirming everything until he got to the Gift of Discernment- or the Gift of distinguishing between spirits. He said simply: “…. you know, I couldn’t think of anyone that was working this necessary Gift amongst us!” Lord Jesus, there are so many voices shouting for our attention and all of them proclaiming ‘this is the way…!’ Help us to hear and distinguish ‘The Way of the Spirit!’ X
