Let’s be honest here, living out of our God-given identity will bless those around us in ways that they could never be blessed otherwise. There is no counselor, no doctor, no secular means of help, that will do for a person what the ministries of effective healing and deliverance will do for a person in just a few sessions. Casting demons out of an oppressed person will do for them what a lifetime of counseling and medications could never do for them – it can change their life forever!
Sometimes we can be in a deliverance session where we may never see that person again, and when you’re limited to a few hours, there’s a sense of urgency to get to the root of the problem. In those sessions, it is very important for somebody who is gifted and operating in the Word of Knowledge gift that Paul speaks of, because what may take hours to discover (or may never be discovered!), can be revealed with one simple word of wisdom! That person receiving ministry could have their life changed forever just from somebody who is operating in their Word of Wisdom gift! What if that gifted person isn’t present, or isn’t operating in their gifting? The one being ministered to may not get the help they so desperately need.
Not only do you change that person’s life to whom you minister or pray for, but you will likely change many others in their lives as a result of their testimony! I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again… you will do things in the kingdom that you could never do without operating in your spiritual gifts and calling!!
On top of changing the lives of others, operating in your spiritual gifts will give you a sense of identity and value in the kingdom that you can get no other way. You will feel a part of what Jesus is doing in the lives of others, and it will give you a sense of value and self-worth that nothing in this world can give you.
