Getting Ready to Go!
Also I heard the voice of the Lord saying, “Whom shall I send, and who will go for us?” Then I said, “Here am I! Send me.”
- Isaiah 6:8
Word of the Day
While driving home this afternoon, I heard a song that ministered, professing that “I’ll be the one” the Lord could trust. As the song continued I was taken by the simple truths of holiness being taught through the lyrics, so I began examining myself by the principles so beautifully sung. By the time I got home and checked my cell phone I had a lengthy text from a young lady who was struggling with her faith walk and desired to “do something” in the church. Frustrated, she was asking for instructions to know how to live godly in spite of her circumstances. Her life had been riddled with abuse, betrayal and abandonment from the time she was a very small child, so having faith seemed a distant reality for her. When I began to think about the best way to answer her questions I started thinking of the lyrics to the song I heard in the car. The message in the song related that God had an expectation to find someone who would give themselves fully, knowing that God could trust him. The songwriter declared he was in a good place with the Lord. He was aware that Holy Spirit living within him brought the desire to live holy. Because of His enabling power at work in our lives, we are able to think, speak, act and make choices that will give us victory while bringing glory to God’s name. After a while a connection was made with the young lady, she understood her faith walk required her to do something other than just expecting God to move for her. She acknowledged Holy Spirit’s conviction in her life and began confessing her sins.
