How can one approach having a spiritual gift if they find it's almost impossible to reveal a gift given from the spirit. You often cannot show the receiving of it and if you have the beautiful living of a spiritual gift it is most often only shared between you and God.
You'll also discover false claims go on with hundreds of people who make up stories of having a spiritual gift only fooling many in telling them wild stories or lies if you will about their most unpredictable gift. In all unrighteous sooner or later they'll be discovered as fraud. However, you'll discover that not all claiming gifts of the spirit are not putting up fake stories at all.
Each individual who has a gift of Holy Spirit can be trusted because of the completeness of knowing the Spirit of Jesus Christ. This is Jesus gift to all believers in him. As quoted in the bibical words many have the gift of prophecy, the gift of speaking in tongues and the gift of intrepretation of tongues. Some spiritual gifts include seeing a third portion of the heavens and the spiritual of healing and discernment. Gifts of the Holy Spirit are unique in ways that they are given as your own relationship with God and are used to edify him in your life with him.
Spiritual gifts are real only when it is practiced and used correctly in obedience. You'll remember the disciples of Jesus displayed gifts of the spirit in healing and even bringing back to life those who were dead. These disciples followed Christ's teaching and were granted many gifts of prophecy and other miracles of tremdous elevation.
When a person does receive a spiritual gift often they are met with some delusion that they are not actually having the gift. They may face doubting but before long "if they do not continue in doubting" the gift of the spirit will show the revelation of it's purpose. God grants gifts to those who will use them wisely, and with an unequally amount of total trust. Trust is developed by much continued faith and belief and devout devotion. Many who have received spiritual gifts speak less of their gift because of the ridicule the world would bring on them. Especially when others have not received any gifts of the spirit at all. They may mock the person and make excuses to them what they've experienced is not real only one's imagination playing tricks on their minds. So then, many receivers remain silently using their gifts only when necessary in edifying, or in praises and worship in mysterious secret place within the inner spirit of themselves.
Do not confuse spiritual gifts with gifts and talents. The gifts of talents are always gifts given of God, but these are developed with faith and are awarded as ones the person uses to give show that these are possible because of their ability to pursue and allow God to develop their talent into perfection. Spiritual gifts are often not displayed in the same mannerism. These are again more personal with your relationship with God and the blessing of the Holy Spirit's annointing. Spiritual gifts are produced by the indwelling of the Holy Spirit.
You can make your own conclusions if you believe in the gifts of the Spirit, be aware though that God is Spirit and the giving of spiritual gifts are real as God. Therefore, you must remember not to mock the Holy Spirit, or speak against things pertaining to the Holy Spirit existance--being careful of uttering blasphemy.
There are many scriptures giving proof in the Word that Spiritual gifts are indeed true. I have note scriptures from which you can read and study, but there is always more to know. I suggest that you must always read, study, hear and obey to learn more of the deep secrets of God including the Holy Spirit who will intell all knowledge to those willing to receive and accept the Spirit of Jesus.

Even so you, since you are zealous for spiritual gifts, let it be for the edification of the church that you seek to excel. Therefore let him who speaks in a tongue pray that he may intrepret. For if I pray in a tongue, my spirit prays, but my understanding is fruitful. What is the conclusion then? I will pray with the understanding. I will sing with the spirit, and I will also sing with the understanding.
