If you will, He will equip you to accomplish His purpose! If you will, He will give you both knowledge and gifts you need to get it done! Will you take time to pray and listen to how God has gifted you? Will you take time to pray and listen to how God has and is strengthening you for His purpose? Will you also prayer for others in the church that God will also fill them of knowledge through His wisdom and understanding through His Spirit? Will grab a hold of the knowledge God is giving you through His wisdom? Will you grab a hold of the understanding God is giving you through His Spirit? Will take a moment and listen for God’s future plan in your life? Will you grab a hold of what God was saying to you in and through that prayer? Will you envision with God where He wants you to be in the next year and all the lives that will be touched through you? Will you ask for patience and peace to wait upon Him so that you can accomplish what He has planned for Him?
Will you envision where God wants to take you?
1Now the Lord said to Abram, “Go from your country and your kindred and your father’s house to the land that I will show you.
— Genesis 12:1
Will you walk in obedience and trust in God for provision? Will you share the love of God with those God brings into your life? Will you be Jesus with skin on to them? Will you live the life God is asking you to live? Will you surrender your way for His way?
“Preach the Gospel at all times and when necessary use words.” by Francis of Assisi
12If others share this rightful claim on you, do not we even more? Nevertheless, we have not made use of this right, but we endure anything rather than put an obstacle in the way of the gospel of Christ.
— 1 Corinthians 9:12
God knows what you have and will have need of! God will gift you to accomplish His will if you will be obedient to pursue and accomplish His will! God doesn’t call the gifted, He gifts the called! I learned this and now take hold of it whenever He calls!
17Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of lights with whom there is no variation or shadow due to change.
— James 1-17
So God, you see me right where I am at! You love me so much that You don’t want to leave me here! So Lord, as I turn to You in prayer and as I listen again to the audio including in today’s devotion, I give my life into Your hands in Jesus’ name. Amen.
Your love is a gift! Help me stay routed in Your love!
