A gift is something the donor chooses. We choose what it is and who will get it. The more we know someone, the better we can give them. How do we know them? We know them through their lifestyle and our fellowship with them.
God did not give us the gift we wanted, he gave us the gift we needed. He didn't ask us, what do you need? He already knew for us because of His love.
Ephesians 4: 8 Therefore he saith, When he ascended into high places, he led captivity captive, and gave gifts to men. Man must claim these gifts before he can offer them to another.
When God gives a gift, there is always a seed that must be planted and matured in the manifestation of the gift within that seed. He planted a seed in Mary that matured into the perfect gift to man who has met all our needs. He planted a garden in Eden that would spread throughout the earth. He told Abraham: In your seed, all the nations of the earth will be blessed. Jesus said of himself, except that a wheat kernel falls into the ground and dies, it remains alone, but if it dies, it gives much fruit. (John 12:24).
An offer is different from a gift. An offer is something that once the recipient has claimed ownership changes to offer back to the donor of the gift. Jesus as a man, on behalf of the man, offered himself back to God who rescues him. Jesus said of himself, my life is mine, I have the power to put it down and power to take it up again. He claimed ownership so that he could offer his life back to his Father on behalf of others.
The gifts God gives us, when we have claimed ownership of them, should be offered back to Him in service to others after they have matured. James 5: 7 Wherefore, patience, brethren, unto the coming of the Lord. Look, the farmer is waiting for the precious fruit of the earth and has long patience for it, until he receives the early and clay rain.
You can see this maturation process in the lives of individuals and churches. First, things break and grow fast because of the Holy Spirit's first rain on the gifts that are in us. After the first rain, the time-consuming growing period begins, where it does not seem that much happens. Then the Holy Ghost gives the latter rain and the gifts mature to perfection.
Suddenly, a person's ministry or church breaks in all directions in growth. What happened? They got the latter rain, and the gifts were perfect to harvest. That is why James says (1:17) to be patient and wait for the latter rain, for every good and perfect gift is from above and comes down from the father of light.
If the gifts God has given are used before they mature, the confusion of others is the result of no fruit present. People who go before God are ever frustrated and stop or fall into sin without understanding the process of God's time of harvest and harvest. God is patient. He waits for the gifts he has given to men to mature complete perfection before he can use them.
For a seed to grow, it must have free soil, water and light. The word of God is the seed. If the ground is not fertile, we must fertilize it. The word of God is the fertilizer. If the soil is dry, we must water it. The word of God is the water. If the ground needs light, we deliver the light. The word of God is the light.
