So this has been where I have been the past few months.. feeling frustrated and useless when it came to the kingdom of God. I realize now that the problem all along was that I was focused on me and not on God. God has really been showing me lately that I am not on this earth to save anyone or change anything, I am here to love God, to surrender it all to Him, which of course will lead to Him using me in the way He knows is best. We just have to realize that we can do nothing in our own strength and that our total dependence must be on God.
Here is an example of this in scripture...
Then Moses answered and said, “But suppose they will not believe me or listen to my voice; suppose they say, ‘The LORD has not appeared to you.’”
2 So the LORD said to him, “What is that in your hand?”
He said, “A rod.”
3 And He said, “Cast it on the ground.” So he cast it on the ground, and it became a serpent; and Moses fled from it. 4 Then the LORD said to Moses, “Reach out your hand and take it by the tail” (and he reached out his hand and caught it, and it became a rod in his hand), 5 “that they may believe that the LORD God of their fathers, the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob, has appeared to you.”
God uses our everyday lives to prepare and use us, we just have to cast all of our passions, skills and talents down at the feet of Jesus. Moses had been carrying that rod around with him for forty years in the wilderness trying to do things his own way in his own strength. (meanwhile God was actually preparing him to be used by Him) But the minute he cast it down before God it became something that God could use.
So whatever you are holding in your hand, whatever God has placed before you in your life, whether it be a blog, your family, a job or a passion or dream.. cast it all down at His feet and watch and see what He will do. He promises to be faithful and that He will fulfill our hearts.
Delight yourself in the Lord and He shall give you the desires of your heart. Psalm 37:4
Being confident of this very thing, that He who has begun a good work in you will complete it until the day of Jesus Christ. Philippians 1:6
