Stir up the gift of God

“Wherefore I put thee in remembrance that thou stir up the gift of God, which is in thee by the putting on of my hands. For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.”2 Timothy 1:6-7(KJV)
Years ago in one of the places I had worked had a coworker who was a Psychic Reader and could tell the people whatever message the devil had for them but she was fervent and not ashamed in using her gift. Initially, for me, I had to pray and look for safe opportunities to witness and pray for people who needed healings. Even though she was an agent of darkness, she did not hide it. What I subsequently noticed was that she could not do the consultations for people when I am around because my presence caused her medium to fail. With such encounters, I had since learned never to be “quiet” in witnessing. Later on the in that workplace was able to have some converts and encourage other believers and soon had a fellowship without any conflict with our work and the productivity increased. She was fired on the job, but her initial aggression in doing what she believed was remarkable.
Around us today are still workers of iniquities waxing firm and are not ashamed to display their trade. Most believers usually wait for the “right time” to witness or secretly to pray.
Sometimes we “sleep off” at our duty Post in being an active witness for the Lord. 
What are those gifts that God has given you to bring in more souls to His kingdom?  It’s great to use them at all times as the opportunities arise. Don’t restrict your spiritual gifts to when you are in the church or only during such organized programs alone.
God has put you on different platforms so He can shine through you.
You are a Christian 24/7 so also the ability of God to use you as His instrument resides in you.
Don’t be too hesitant to make the right nature of God visible and manifesting in your life.
Paul encouraged Timothy not to fear and to be diplomatic in remaining silent.
Speak up and don’t be ashamed of the gospel of Christ.
 Naturally, people will cling to the lies rather than wanting to hear the truth but continue to speak because when they face challenges that evil medium cannot solve they will come looking for you.
Be prepared at all times to share your faith.
“For the earnest expectation of the creature waited for the manifestation of the sons of God.” Romans 8:19 (KJV.)
Don’t be put off by what is happening around you.
Let God use you to bring more souls to His kingdom wherever you find yourselves.
The Bible says you are wise because you can win souls.
“The fruit of the righteous is a tree of life, and he that winneth soul is wise. Behold, the righteous shall be recompensed in the earth: much more the wicked and the sinner.” Proverbs 11:30-31(KJV)
As you continue to win souls for God, HE increases you in other areas of your life.
