Being Used by God

I’m discovering to be used by God has little to do with qualification. It has little to do with what experiences I’ve had in the past. It has nothing to do with what offices I hold now or have held in the past, that includes pastor, priest, monk, CEO, big shot, or even really big, big shot.
 
It has nothing to do with past accomplishments or recognitions, publications or connections to other important people. To be used by God requires only one thing. A present tense connection to Him. It requires I belong to Him, I’m in relationship with Him, so His life is flowing through my life. No more, no less. I may be used by Him today and not tomorrow. I may have been used by Him in the past but not today.
 
Forget the past with its failures and accomplishments and press forward, develop intimacy with Jesus Christ today, stay very close to Him and let His life live in you. Then without striving, you will be His and used by Him to accomplish what He wants.

About Scott Ranck

Enjoying life with my wife Gayle and our Yorkie, Zoe boy. I've come to believe life begins when through brokenness I can embrace it fully and openly. I've learned the human drama is an adventure and all of us are made of the same stuff. The Lord is the only being who knows me fully and he has an individual educational plan of life long learning for me and I'm enrolled. This blog is all about what I'm learning.
