Next week I will be finishing up Philippians 4, before launching into the Faith Dare daily blogs in July. If you would like to follow along with the Faith Dare, go order a book and start on July 1st with an online community here. The book can be done anytime, but I personally will be going through the dares in July and invite you to join me too. The blogs will be personal in nature and geared at applying truth of the day to my everyday life. I am hoping many of you will log on and make comments, as we stir up faith in one another.
today….here is a quote from Max Lucado, taken from a beautiful card given to me years ago, saved for it’s message.
Blessed are the available.
Blessed are the conduits, the tunnels, the tools.
Deliriously joyful are the ones
who believe that if God has used sticks and rocks
to do His will,
then He can use us. ( from The Applause of Heaven, by Max Lucado)
- Are you available to his nudges and leading today? Or are your plans the biggest factor in arranging the day?
- Have you stopped to think that you are a conduit, a tool, a tunnel from which God works through? Pretty exciting when you let your beliefs go there.
- Do you believe that God uses anything to do His will?
- If He can use anything, do you believe He can and will use YOU?
“If anyone would come after me, he must deny himself and take up his cross daily and follow me.” Luke 9:23
Are you coming after the Lord Jesus today? What is He requiring you to deny in order to follow Him and be used of Him this very day? Is it your own wisdom? your natural insecurities? you knowledge of your inability?
today, lay yourself aside and make yourself available to Him!
