Dealing with Fear & Desire the Gifts God Has for You 1. Acknowledge that the gifts that are available to and working in you are to be used in dependence and cooperation with the Lord. 2. Be Available: By now you should be habitually waiting and cultivating quietness as a lifestyle. Both of these habits are quickening your inherent desire for using supernatural gifts. 3. Study: As with any new venture, set your mind that you will have to set your mind. You will not only be developing your inherited supernatural abilities, but the self-control and discipline to be able to handle them according to His direction. 4. Training: Ask the Lord for training in a specific gift. If you already have a desire to learn a specific gift, ask the Lord if this is what He’d like to be working on. Set aside time for training from the Lord apart from waiting and study. Ask the Lord for ideas on how to develop a specific gift. 5. Practice: Look for opportunities to practice throughout the day. Don’t wait for conditions to be “right”—they never will be! 6. Review: Set up a regular schedule to review your progress with the Lord regarding your use of the gifts and other opportunities the Lord may present to you. 7. Adjust: Because we are all in the learning process, we all make mistakes, both in using the gifts and being corrected by others. 8. Instruct/Encourage Others: Be willing to be used of the Lord to be an example and instructor to others of functioning in the gifts from dependence on the Lord alone. 9. Repeat: Learning to minister in the gifts of the Spirit is a never-ending cycle, since God Himself is never ending.
