DAY 20 -Prepare yourself to be used by God

So if anyone cleanses himself of what is unfit, he will be a vessel for honor: sanctified, useful to the Master, and prepared for every good work. 2 Timothy 2:21

The only ability God seeks in us is availability. God does not seek someone intelligent, talented or eloquent. All of these are good traits. However, what He seeks is someone who is available. The Bible tells us that the first requirement for someone to be used by God is to be at His disposal. Many people have gifts and talents, but unfortunately, few make themselves available for Jesus. The Lord knows when a heart is available for Him. Many of His children say “No” to God because they feel they are not worthy, or that they can’t do what God asks of them, or that the burden is too heavy, or that they don’t have the necessary talent. To all of these, He says today: “If you are willing and available, I will make you a carrier of My presence and My glory, so that you may minister with My power wherever you go”.

 This means that we must be ready for the time when God wants to use us to manifest His glory. All members of the body have to be available for the head. Regardless of how strong an arm is, it won’t be useful if it doesn’t do what the head wants. Are you available for God?

The gifts and talents are good, but above all, what God seeks is that you are available to serve when and where you are needed. Do you want to give your availability to the Lord?

Let us pray together
Lord Jesus, on this day I put my gifts, talents and resources at Your disposal, but above all, I want to give You my time. I am available for You. Here I am, Lord! I will go where You need me, and be an extension of Your arms to embrace the helpless; an extension of Your hands to heal the sick; I’ll be Your compassionate heart to free the captive, and Your agape love to love unconditionally. Use me Lord, I am available for You!
