Have you ever thought about asking God what you can do for him?
It seems to be a foreign concept to ask the creator of the universe if he needs us to do something. But when we consider how the Almighty has set things up, we actually should be asking him that, more times than not.
Consider this: John the Baptist came to bear witness of the light. The bible says he was not that light, but came to bear witness of the light to the world.
Jesus then comes on the scene as the light and teaches his disciples that they are the light of the world.
Question: If I am the light of the world, shouldn’t I ask the originator of the light where he wants me to shine?
I can make some assumptions, but why? Is it too much to think that God would actually place certain people on our hearts and minds so that we can pray for them, minister to them or just help them?
If this still sounds foreign to you, pray this to the Lord: “Father in heaven, you have been so good to me and I don’t deserve it. I want to serve in your kingdom and show the world how good you are. Please point me in the right direction. Give me a ministry that I might utilize the gifts you gave me to better your cause. I love you and thank you in Jesus name, amen.”
See how simple it is? It’s good to be in a place where you are content and can see clearly how to help another person get there.
The harvest is still plentiful, but the workers are still few…. selah.
