If God was to use anyone in this world, would we be considered? Can the divine count on us to execute his mandate here on earth?
When David served God, the task given was executed through divine enablement. He was a leader, not entirely perfect but one who led a surrendered life. God anointed him while he was a shepherd boy and raised him to become a great king. His complete dependence on God led to a great manifestation of God’s presence in his life service.
As believers, we are not exempt from service. God requires that we serve him with all our heart and soul (Deuteronomy 10:12). Wholehearted service requires that nothing is left undone. And God can always use us in service, no matter our physical, emotional, or mental condition. He will provide what we need to serve him best.
All of us have a role to play in the advancement of God’s agenda here on earth. Therefore, the question that we ought to ask ourselves is this: when the time comes when we can no longer work and look back on our lives, would we have served our generation?
God has provided numerous opportunities for us to serve him, whether it’s at home, in society, or in the body of Christ. Identify those areas, plug into the spirit-filled life, and make the most of your giftings and skills to propel God’s agenda here on earth.
Heavenly Father, empower me today through your Holy Spirit so that I may serve your purposes here on earth. Amen.
