Day 209: Willing & Able (Psalm 53-55; Acts 27:26-44)

“God looks down from heaven upon the children of men, to see if there are any who understand, who seek God.” -Psalm 53:2

God is always in need of people to do His work. Unfortunately, it sounds like good help is hard to find for Him. Maybe it’s because we are prone to not see the need around us – everyone seems to be getting along just fine. Or, more likely, we don’t feel “ready” to do anything significant or think that someone else can do it better than us.

Yet, God continues to look for a willing and ready heart to do His work. He doesn’t need you to first get a college degree or to go on a mission trip to a third world country. He doesn’t check if there is a wedding ring on your finger or if your body is at your target weight. He doesn’t care if you have ten social media followers or a million; whether you’re an introvert or an extrovert; or the balance in your bank account.

He just wants someone who understands and seeks Him. That is all.

So today, I challenge you to pray: “Here I am Lord, use me.” Then, keep your eyes open for an opportunity to be used by Him. And an opportunity will present itself -it might be as “small” as praying over a friend in need or a major life change like clearly seeing what your college major should be. Be ready. Be willing. Seek Him. And listen. God’s got great things planned for you, Love!
