It is not uncommon for us to overlook what we may have at our disposal in our course towards progress in God’s will for our lives- business, career, ministry, family, etc.
In instances where God gives us His revelation or His vision towards His will or purpose, we may even lack the faith by overly focusing on our lack or inadequecy.
Looking at what we have
I believe God can use whatever little or much when we have faith in Him and in what He can do.
Moses answered, “What if they do not believe me or listen to me and say, ‘The LORD did not appear to you’?”
Then the LORD said to him, “What is that in your hand?”
“A staff,” he replied.
In this passage from Exodus, Moses didn’t expect God to use his staff that was in his hand. The staff was a mere stick in the eyes of Moses.
It must have surprised him that God would asked for his staff. But with it, God showed that He could use it to glorify His Name by turning it into a snake.
God can use whatever little we have
Often, like Moses, we might belittle what we have by overlooking them. Worse, we might even doubt that God can actually use the things we have.
But more important than things, I believe we should NEVER depise our lives and even think for a moment that we are not worthy or good enough for His purposes.
As we give to God what we have and whatever little we think our life is, and He will take it and use us beyond what we could ever imagine.
I tell you the truth, anyone who has faith in me will do what I have been doing. He will do even greater things than these, because I am going to the Father.
And I will do whatever you ask in my name, so that the Son may bring glory to the Father. You may ask me for anything in my name, and I will do it.
