I consider it a privilege and an awesome responsibility to be trusted with the task of being a vessel to minister to God’s people. His grace never ceases to amaze me. I’ve said many times before that I know the “me” that no one else truly knows. The fact that God knows that “me” and still chooses to use me, blows my mind.
I keep messing up. He keeps extending His hand. When I look at what I have to offer and how I would respond to situations, and then I look at the way Christ responds, I’m humbled beyond description. When I would cry Murder, He offers Mercy; when I would want REVENGE, He offers redemption; when I continue to give in to sin, He continues to extend salvation; when I would cause hurt, He looks to heal. The more I know Him, the more I understand my insufficiencies and the more He shows me that those insufficiencies are covered in His abundance.
Even with all this, He – the God of the Universe, the One who spoke the very earth into existence….. chooses to hear me. He hears me. He attends unto my prayers. Who am I?
I want to know Him. I want to be closer to God. I heard someone say before that you are as close to God as you want to be. If that’s the truth, then my desire is to have a stronger desire to be closer to the One who yearns to be close to me.
