Take a look around you today! Where have you been place? What area have you been placed in? What office space? What company? What group? What region? And do you realize why? Do you see all the people that have been place around you? Relationships are the key! How can you speak into someone’s life if you don’t know anything about their life? And how can we find purpose in our lives? We need to build up relationship with God! We can’t pour out what we haven’t been filled with. We need to allow the Holy Spirit to fill us up so that we can then pour out into the lives around us! So ask God to fill you! Allow His anointing to fill you up to overflowing! Overflow God’s love, grace, peace, and mercy into the lives of those around you today!
Before we start, let’s stop and take a moment to listen to a prayer…What is your unique gift? How can your gifts be used today to touch others? How can God use you to touch the lives of those around you?
Will you be in the office today? How will you allow God to use you?
Will you be travelling today? How will you allow God to use you?
Wherever you will be today, prepare this morning and ask God to help you to use your unique giftings to speak into the world around you in Jesus’ name.!
Today’s reading starts in 1 Samuel 3 when Samuel first hears from God and learns to listen to His voice…
7Now Samuel did not yet know the Lord, and the word of the Lord had not yet been revealed to him.
Take time to listen to His voice. Take time to be in His Word! Take time to build up your relationship with Him! Take time to hear from God! Take time to be obedient to His calling and His plan!
God’s reading today continues in Ephesians 1:9
7In him we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of our trespasses, according to the riches of his grace, 8which he lavished upon us, in all wisdom and insight 9making known to us the mystery of his will, according to his purpose, which he set forth in Christ 10as a plan for the fullness of time, to unite all things in him, things in heaven and things on earth.
God wants us to know His plan, His will, His purpose for our lives! He wants this world to understand what love is! We only know what love is because of the incredible sacrifice God made through Jesus that we could be reconciled back to Him! We know what love is because God provides us His Word that tells us that love is…
4 Love is patient and kind; love does not envy or boast; it is not arrogant 5or rude. It does not insist on its own way; it is not irritable or resentful; 6it does not rejoice at wrongdoing, but rejoices with the truth. 7Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.8Love never ends.
