My Story: Being Used By God
Submit, Or letting God use us in anyway He wants can be scary but it is what gives us more peace and understanding than anything this world can offer.
Being Used by God
The people God chooses are often not the ones that people would consider the best suited for the job. We see this in Peggy’s story of God’s choice to use a 15-year-old girl who barely speaks the language to convey His heart to prostitutes in Hungary. We see it again in His choice to anoint the smallest brother, David, to be the next king of Israel. We cannot allow our perceptions of our abilities or our past to stand in the way of what God is calling us to do. If He calls us, He will equip us.
Being Used By God
We can and should seek after God, but ultimately, He is the one who finds us. The people were perplexed at Jesus’ choice of Zacchaeus. Some today may feel the same about his choice to use Logan. That is not for us to decide. If we are honest, most of us have a hard time understanding why God would choose to call us as well. What is important is that in both Logan and Zacchaeus’ cases they chose to answer when Jesus called. Our job is the same.
Jennifer’s story clearly illustrates that God works for us when we cry out to him. Joseph also experienced this. The hard times we experience often make it difficult to see God at work. Especially when we’re right in the middle of them! Yet, the situation that brings us to our knees may be just the push we need to move toward God. And to see that he is faithful... and is working for our good.
