1 Corinthians 12:9 (NKJV)
To another faith by the same Spirit, to another gifts of healings by the same Spirit…
Gift of Faith – It is a gift to the believer in order that they might receive miracles. The Working of Miracles on the other hand which we will look at tomorrow, is a gift given to believers so they can work miracles. The gift of faith receives, working of miracles does. One is passive, the other is active.
The Gift of Faith is a supernatural manifestation of the Holy Spirit whereby a believer is empowered with special faith or wonder-working faith. Or simply put… it is the God-given ability to believe for the impossible in a given situation.
Gifts of Healing – This gift is manifest for the supernatural healing of sickness and disease without any natural source or means.
Healings refer to the renewing or repairing of a diseased state or condition, while a miracle is generally something in the creative scope.
The Gifts of the Spirit as you can see are wonderful and complex, yet, they are giving by the Spirit and are available to all as the Spirit Himself wills. We will dig deeper into these in the days following.
