I have heard people talk about grand plans to serve the Lord. They want to turn the whole world upside down and shake entire continents, yet they can’t commit to a local church and serve there. It starts where you are, not out there in the cosmos. If you are faithful with the little, God will give you greater things. Take a good look at where you are and seize that opportunity to be of value and worth in service to the Lord.
I have also heard many make reference to their limitations, commitments and inabilities. They feel unqualified and incapable of making a difference. So they keep hoping that at some point in the future they will get into ministry when everything falls into place. Don’t wait for the perfect day cause there is no such day. Start where you are today!
SCRIPTURE READING: Luke 12:35-40
Let your loins be girded about, and your lights burning; and ye yourselves like unto men that wait for their lord, when he will return from the wedding; that when he cometh and knocketh, they may open unto him immediately. Blessed are those servants, whom the lord when he cometh shall find watching: verily I say unto you, that he shall gird himself, and make them to sit down to meat, and will come forth and serve them. And if he shall come in the second watch, or come in the third watch, and find them so, blessed are those servants. And this know, that if the good man of the house had known what hour the thief would come, he would have watched, and not have suffered his house to be broken through. Be ye therefore ready also: for the Son of man cometh at an hour when ye think not.
Loving Father, I thank you for ministry. As I take a good look at where I am, may I seize the opportunity to be of value and worth in serving you in Jesus’ Name. Amen
