God: makes selections….
Isaiah 6:7-8 (KJV) “And he laid it upon my mouth, and said, Lo, this hath touched thy lips; and thine iniquity is taken away, and thy sin purged. Also I heard the voice of the Lord, saying, Whom shall I send, and who will go for us? Then said I, Here am I; send me”.
I find that at times when you discuss ministry work with some folks, there is always a hesitation to step out or to be challenged in any deep way; when you get to the root of it all, the response many a times is “I am waiting for Jesus to lead me”.
It puzzles me at times, that if He already came, gave the instructions and is interceding on our behalf in heaven, what is left out of the equation?
But I am persuaded that we all have to be honest with our relationship with God; maybe we missed it at times or maybe we are bogged down in fear. But maybe it’s time we get to being honest with ourselves and allow Jesus to override the objections.
Jesus did a cleansing within us and already prepared us for the work: the harvest is ready, but the laborers are few”; maybe its your time..
Here am I: send me can be a phrase you use in Jesus name from now.
