Daily Devotional – 8/4/14 “Are you available to be used?”

I shared this on Facebook yesterday but it’s worth sharing again because someone on today is still trying to figure out why they can’t be blessed like others. Someone is trying to understand why nothing is working out in their favor. Someone is even questioning God on why He hasn’t used them yet but beloved, God can’t use you when you’re not available. Yea, you’re constantly asking God to use you yet every time He calls you, you’re unreachable. You claim you’re waiting to hear from God yet your ears are being filled with gossip and lies which makes you inaccessible. Baby, God can’t use you when you are unapproachable. Sure, you say you’re ready yet you complain about the storm you’re in but don’t you know that God can’t use you when you’re not willing to be cleaned up. I hear you when you say, I’m ready, willing and able yet God can’t use you when you’re still unsure of which side of the fence you want to land on. You cry that you’re ready to lead and be put in charge of things at church but chile God can’t use you when you’re still the one turning on the lights at the club after they make the last call for alcohol. You say you have a message to share but God can’t use you when you’re the one still starting all the mess!

Please believe me when I tell you that God will give you just what you ask for. If you ask Him to remove enemies, He does. He doesn’t look at the fact you’ve labeled them as friends, He’s only doing what you ask. When you ask God to strengthen your gift and He does, don’t allow fear to make you run and hide. When you ask God to speak to you, He will, so don’t get scared of what He tells you to do. Yes, I get it. You may think it’s too big for to stand in or you may even think you are unworthy of the calling but Romans 8:30 says, “And those he predestined, he also called; those he called, he also justified; those he justified, he also glorified.” Simply meaning this … God had already predestined your destiny (Jeremiah 29:11) which means He had already Christened your name (Jeremiah 1:5), He had already vindicated your past (2 Corinthians 5:17) and overestimated your worth (1 Corinthians 6:11) so you were born for this. All you have to do is make yourself available. And please know this; once you’re available don’t start complaining about the test because God surely can’t use you if your faith can’t be tested!
