Have you ever said or done something…and then look back later, wondering how in the world you said or did that? Whatever you said or did was not something you normally do. In fact, you wonder where the thought or action came from? These are the times when we recognize that God works through us. This is called the Holy Spirit. There are times we will be astounded by the obvious presence of the Holy Spirit that we are blessed to experience. We are a vessel in God’s honor. Many times you will never know the impact you have had on someone. You may have said or done something that was ‘nothing’ to you…but was a defining moment for someone else. I admit that I read back over these daily writings sometimes, and think to myself, “I wrote that?”. It is a beautiful reality to know that God uses each one of us in unique ways…on a daily basis. NEVER think you don’t have something to offer this world. You make a difference in this life every day. Your words or your actions have an influence on someone throughout each day. The gifts that God has instilled in each one of us are unique and valuable. Whatever you are gifted with has a purpose. There is a ministry within your talent. It may be as simple as recognizing your gift at being a good window cleaner. However small you think the task is…it is big and powerful when God uses you in it. There is talent in every single one of us. Whatever you do on a daily basis…do it with the knowledge that someone is being blessed by you. Allow God to use you. Pray and ask God to allow you to be His vessel on a daily basis. You will be amazing at the blessing you will receive yourself…when you open up your heart to be a blessing to others.
There are different kinds of gifts, but the same Spirit. There are different kinds of service, but the same Lord. There are different kinds of working, but the same God works all of them in all men. 1 CORINTHIANS 12:4-6
And whatever you do, whether in word or in deed, do it all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through Him. COLOSSIANS 3:17
God is with us.
