Do you ever see the pain in someone’s face and feel helpless? Depression and heartbreak can overtake a body and the results spill out upon their face. What do you do? I have a friend who feels the pain of others. Though it may not seem like a gift, it is. Someone else’s hurt will overwhelm her and cause a disturbance within her. However, God also gave her the gift of healing, so at her touch, the pain that had once overtaken them will immediately disappear. It takes every bit of energy she has; similar to when the woman with the issue of blood touched the cloak of Jesus and power left Him. This same thing happens to her! I’ve never met anyone like her before. She didn’t even know that she had this gift until she took a gifts survey. From that point on, God made that gift come alive within her. Do you know what your spiritual gifts are? If you don’t, you need to find out and start walking in them so you can also help others when they need it.
Now there are varieties of gifts, but the same Spirit; and there are varieties of service, but the same Lord; and there are varieties of activities, but it is the same God who empowers them all in everyone. To each is given the manifestation of the Spirit for the common good. 1 Corinthians 12:4-7
