Devotional 6/29

While they were worshiping the Lord and fasting, the Holy Spirit said, “Set apart for me Barnabas and Saul for the work to which I have called them.” Then after fasting and praying they laid their hands on them and sent them off. Acts 13:2-3

Where you go, I’ll go. What you say, I’ll say.

Kim Walker

What is God looking for? He is looking for people ho He can trust and depend on.

God doesn’t’t need us, but He desires to use us. He is not like human beings, who drink a carton of juice and toss it when he’s done: God is not a slave master, we are collaborators with Christ.

We are amazing masterpieces: instruments in the hands of the Creator, the All powerful God. From human perspective, it’s easy to judge ourselves and deem ourselves unable, unqualified or limited. Real self-esteem is acknowledging your greatness and capacity. It is appreciating yourself for what you are. God wants to remind us today, that with Him ALL things are possible. Forget about YOU, and collaborate with God! You and God together can and will do amazing things!

Catapult:

  • hurl or launch (something) in a specified direction with or as if with a machine or mechanical force;
  • Propel, shoot, send flying, send, fling;
  • move suddenly or at great speed as though hurled by a catapult.

God knows our capacity, He knows our caliber. He qualifies us in private, to display us in public. He prepares us in secret, and places us in strategic places. He wants to use you… yes you! He wants to use your voice, your influence your intellect, creativity, temperament, gifts and talents.

Will you take a chance with God? He has approved you; He has tried your faith and found you- fireproof! Brace yourself because God is about to catapult you!

Let’s pray:

Father God, thank you for this word. I pray it falls into fertile ground, and yields a harvest of 30, 60 or 100 fold. We welcome you to use us to expand your kingdom, to set the captives free and save souls. In the name of Jesus I pray! Amen.
