Day 25 / A Prophetic Voice (pages 139-143)
My ah-ha from today’s reading:
“It is more noble to give yourself completely to one individual than to labor diligently for the salvation of the masses.”
Goodness this quote spoke to me tonight unlike ever before. It was just a few hours ago I was thinking to myself, “Lord, I want to do BIG things for you!!!”
It’s as if He sent a reminder directly to me that it doesn’t always have to be BIG.
In fact, take this prayer challenge as an example. This is the second time I’ve lead this particular challenge with a group of friends and the 5th study overall I’ve hosted here in this space online.
This current study is actually the biggest participation we’ve ever had – over 50 people signed up!
The first time we did this challenge we had a ton of interaction between friends commenting and sharing. That hasn’t really been the case this time. I totally get how some people don’t like sharing with those they don’t know and some people are just plain busy, etc.
But, I’ll admit I’ve questioned along the way if there is something I’ve done differently or not as well. That’s just human nature.
Today’s devotional encouraged me in knowing that even if this study has brought 1 person closer to God – it was well worth it.
All I’m asking God to do is use me – whatever way He sees fit. Sometimes that might be in big ways that are super obvious. Other times it may be in the quiet subtle ways.
Whatever the case, I want to remember this:
“…your words have the potential to change lives by helping people discover their identity and destiny in Jesus Christ.”
Yes!!! Lord, help my words to change lives by helping people – not by tearing down! Use my words to bring someone closer to You. Let my life make a difference – big or small!!
