GOD’S USE OF US ALL

GOD’S USE OF US ALL

 

God wants to use us all. He has a great plan for rich and poor, strong and weak, man and women, parent and children.

If you don’t believe that, study your Bible. Look at young David and a child named Samuel. Observe Moses who began to lead the Israelites in his 80's. Read the story of Rahab who was used to deliver the Israelites as well as Joshua, the great leader. All of these people were greatly used because God was greatly with them.

A PROPHETESS, A LEADER, AND A TENT PEG

There’s a wonderful true account in Judges 4 that illustrates this. Israel had been in bondage for twenty years to a wicked, pagan king from the northern town of Hazor. There was an Israelite woman, Deborah, who often heard from God and was a prophetess. God told her to give a leader named Barak a message to go up against the wicked king.

Barak obeyed, but he wanted Deborah to go with them. She agreed, although reluctantly for she didn’t want it to be perceived that the battle was given to a woman. They both went to Mt. Tabor and Barak went down and defeated the king. The king fled and ran into the tent of a woman named Jael and fell asleep, and Jael took a tent peg and drove it through his temple and killed him.

Although this was a bloody, physical battle, God used two women and a man to get the job accomplished. Everyone had a part to play!

YOUR PART

You may not be handling tent pegs, but God has a part in His kingdom for you to play, regardless of who you are. But, like Deborah, Barak, and Jael, you must rise up and fulfill your role by following Him explicitly. Never underestimate how greatly God can use YOU, when you are humbly following HIM.

Father, thank You for creating us and then calling us to follow You. And thank You that, when we do, we get to be a part of Your great plan. Thank You that everyone can have an equally important part and that you love to choose the humble to use greatly. Lord, help me to follow You fully and be used fully as You see fit.

When a difficult problem, a crushing weight comes into your life, is joy your first response? Do you even consider the possibility that you could rejoice in the midst of the difficulty? If this were a possibility, it could only be explained as something supernatural. Something initiated by God Himself.

There are only two ways to operate in this world. You can try to do things yourself, to the best of your ability. Or you can align yourself with God’s Spirit and let Him lead you, empower you, and flow through you. There are no other options and we need none.

It is said of Martin Luther that he dreamed he was transported to heaven and there noticed thousands of boxes with his name on them. When he asked the angel what they were, the angel replied, “These are answers to prayers that have never been asked.”

God has much more for us. He reminds us that “we have not because we ask not” (James 4:2).
