Rom 11:29 29For the gifts and calling of God are without repentance.
God is not sorry He gave it to you and He ‘s not going to take it back. (hint – it may remain dormant)

One must remember, you are responsible for the full gospel whether you operate in the gifts or not.
The gifts are not a sign of salvation or how wonderful you are to the body of Christ…
Remember the old “Lord didn’t we…”

Matthew 7:22-24 (King James Version)
22Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast
out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works?
23And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.

Romans 12:6 6Having then gifts differing according to the grace that is given to us, whether prophecy, let us
prophesy according to the proportion of faith;

1 Corinthians 12 AMP

1NOW ABOUT the spiritual gifts (the special endowments of supernatural energy), brethren, I do not want you
to be misinformed.
2You know that when you were heathen, you were led off after idols that could not speak [habitually] as
impulse directed and whenever the occasion might arise.
3Therefore I want you to understand that no one speaking under the power and influence of the [Holy] Spirit
of God can [ever] say, Jesus be cursed! And no one can [really] say, Jesus is [my] Lord, except by and under the
power and influence of the Holy Spirit.
4Now there are distinctive varieties and distributions of endowments (gifts, [a]extraordinary powers
distinguishing certain Christians, due to the power of divine grace operating in their souls by the Holy Spirit)
and they vary, but the [Holy] Spirit remains the same.
5And there are distinctive varieties of service and ministration, but it is the same Lord [Who is served].
6And there are distinctive varieties of operation [of working to accomplish things], but it is the same God
Who inspires and energizes them all in all.
7But to each one is given the manifestation of the [Holy] Spirit [the evidence, the spiritual illumination of the
Spirit] for good and profit.
8To one is given in and through the [Holy] Spirit [the power to speak] a message of wisdom, and to another
[the power to express] a word of knowledge and understanding according to the same [Holy] Spirit;
9To another [[b]wonder-working] faith by the same [Holy] Spirit, to another the extraordinary powers of
healing by the one Spirit;
10To another the working of miracles, to another prophetic insight ([c]the gift of interpreting the divine will
and purpose); to another the ability to discern and distinguish between [the utterances of true] spirits [and false
ones], to another various kinds of [unknown] tongues, to another the ability to interpret [such] tongues.
11All these [gifts, achievements, abilities] are inspired and brought to pass by one and the same [Holy] Spirit,
Who apportions to each person individually [exactly] as He chooses.
