For we are God's workmanship, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do. Ephesians 2:10
God created us to do great things. He has plans for the future. He speaks with intent and waits for us to patiently listen. He guides our thoughts and provides wisdom to learn how to serve Him with thanks. And as we respond in obedience, He helps us discover HOW to glorify Him with the gifts He provides.
Sometimes we try and convince ourselves we’re not ready to do what needs to be done. We question whether or not we’re capable to work for the Lord. But the Bible says, “Trust in the Lord with all you heart and do not rely on your own understanding.” Proverbs 3: 5
We mustn’t waste time when God asks us to bless others with the gifts, He has chosen for us. He will grow our faith as we pray for guidance in our lives. He will help us realize His power of strength, so we will be filled with passion and purpose for ALL He provides.
The voice that whispers “no I can’t” will respond with the boldness of “yes, I can” when God has readied us to approach tasks with confidence. He will help us remember we ARE capable of doing great things!
God WILL place joy in our hearts as we honor Him with our talents. He will bring peace in desire to do His will. He will faithfully grow us as we glorify Him and patiently wait to discover what’s in store. And He will reward the love of our gratefulness as we wait for Him to change our lives and perfectly transform us.
Dear God, Thank you! You pull us from the empty spaces of our lives and create magnificent moments to recognize how to serve. You bless us in so many ways. Help us be a blessing to others! Guide us by Your will as we glorify YOU. We will be ready when You open the door of opportunity and ask us to step through. Thank you for preparing us to remember who plans our days. We will trust in You, surrender our fear and gratefully wait to be grown by Your greatness. Thank you, Lord. We will remain faithful to YOU. Amen
