I awoke a week ago after a restless night filled with something more like crying out to God more than praying. I needed answers to a HUGE question. What the Lord gave me was this message: God Can Use You! I still had questions. God can use me where? here? how? when? Well, within 24 hours I was sent, released, assigned, if you will. Since then my goal is to continue to trust Him when your whole week, month, year, and plan get's re-assigned.
It absolutely thrills me when I think that the God of heaven can actually use me! It blows my mind that I can be an instrument to accomplish His will...just like the land on which abundant rain falls.
Faithful Christians are the tools God uses to do great things that have eternal value. He uses His followers as witnesses to the entire earth to tell everyone about Him and His love. When you stop to think about it, you and I can truly alter the course of history and the world!
Unfortunately, some people are not being used by God because they are either unwilling or unfaithful.
It is said that Leon Trotsky, who was a key part of the Communist revolution in Russia, actually attended a Sunday school class one day during a visit to America. But the teacher of the class was absent that morning, and did not bother to get a substitute. So no one taught the Bible that morning, and as far as anyone knows, Trotsky never attended church again.
What if someone had been faithful enough to show up that Sunday morning? It may have helped to alter history!
All that God asks of us is to make ourselves available to Him. Tell the Lord today that you want to faithfully serve Him, to be like the land in today's verse that is a blessing to others and is blessed by God as a result.
Who knows what wonderful things might happen when you are faithful to the Lord!
All that God asks is for you to make yourself available to Him!
Scripture Of The Day: "For land that has drunk the rain that often falls on it, and produces a crop useful to those for whose sake it is cultivated, receives a blessing from God. But if it bears thorns and thistles, it is worthless and near to being cursed, and its end is to be burned." - Hebrews 6:7-8
