How some people seemed to be used by God more than others.
This has been something I have been thinking of lately how some people seemed to be used by God more than others. I had talked to my oldest son about that too. I asked him," Why do you think it is some people are used more by God than others.?"
I think the answer for that lies in the individual. Are we making our selves available to God for His use? How willing are we to lay down our lives, our plans, our desires, and our wants, for His will and plans instead? Are there some areas in our lives that we do not let him be apart of, or some things we just flat tell God that we can not do?
For instance, earlier this summer I had an opportunity to share at out local Bible Camp about our son Clayton, who passed away this spring, and a message God put on my heart to share about the hope we have in Christ. Now speaking in front of a crowd is certainly not my thing, yet here it was something on my heart to do and the more I thought about it the more excited I became. Though I also at times I seriously had my doubts on it, and did feel like telling God, " It is great idea, but I have a difficult time talking in front of a crowd and a group of senior highs no less. So sorry God, but I just can't do it." I could have said no. But if I had I would have lost an opportunity for God to work through me, to be an encouragement and blessing to the young people. And a blessing to my self as well. I came away the second time from speaking at camp on a high! After sharing my message they all prayed for me and my family, and it was such a amazing moment.
My prayer is that I am always a ready vessel for His use no matter what it is. Even if it takes me way out of my comfort zone. I want to be used by Him in every way I can and at every opportunity possible. In doing this He will make us a more usable vessel for His service. Then He can use us for what ever He wants.
~ May we all make our selves more available for God's use.
In Him, Mae
