MIRACLES 09-16-21

Good day everyone. I would like to let everyone know that today is my son Ross’ 39th birthday and I’m proud to call him my son! He is one of God’s walking miracles because he was in a head on car crash more than 19 years ago and came away with only a few stitches in his head, Thank You Lord! I also would like to explain something to everyone reading this message today. Whenever you hear or see me praying for me and my house, know that each and everyone reading this message is part of “my house.” With that in mind I will now pray.

Today’s Prayer

Father, You own even the cattle on a thousand hills. You made everything Oh Mighty Creator and all is yours. You have provided abundantly for your creation. I’m sorry that we have not taken care of so many of the resources you have given us. I’m sorry for our complacency. I am thankful for your perfect plan and creation. I am thankful for your provisions and your ever presence. Please grant wisdom and knowledge that we will be the biblical and wise stewards that you want us to be. Thank you for taking care of me and my house. Thank you for your blessings upon us. Thank you for your protection and your haven within the body of Christ. I love you, Father. In Jesus’ name I pray, Amen.

Let’s eat.

A Tool for Miracles

With the tip of the staff that was in his hand, the angel of the Lord touched the meat and the unleavened bread. Fire flared from the rock, consuming the meat and the bread. And the angel of the Lord disappeared. Judges 6:21

There are some of you reading this message right now that may or may not know that I have been inquiring of the Lord where he wants me to go next with my ministry work. I have this burning desire to start a new work and I have just put my thoughts before Him. As I was thinking about the subject today, this question popped into my spirit; How does God call people into His service? I think that all of you will agree that God has never changed from the beginning. There is a clear pattern in the way God calls men and women into service for Him. Almost every major leader has been called while he or she was in the midst of performing his or her everyday vocation. Peter was a fisherman; Matthew, a tax collector; Luke, a physician; Paul, a tent maker; Moses, a shepherd; Jesus, a carpenter; and so on.

In the book of judges when God called Gideon to free the people of Israel from the oppression of the Amalekites, he did so while Gideon was threshing wheat in a wine press. Like Moses, Gideon argued with God, saying his family was nothing special, so how could he be used of God to save Israel? Gideon acknowledged God by preparing an offering to Him. The angel of God that appeared before Gideon did an interesting thing with Gideon’s offering; he took the tip of his staff and touched the meat and the unleavened bread. Fire flared from the rock, consuming the meat and the bread. As with Moses, God chose to do a miracle with a staff, the instrument that symbolized Gideon’s work life. Why would God do this? It’s because God wants us to know that the tools He has given each of us are the tools He wants to use to demonstrate His power. However, in order for that to happen, we must yield our tools to Him for miracles to be manifested through them. I got the reminder that what I’m doing to earn a living right now is a God given talent and that’s where he wants me to be until he changes my spiritual season. So right here and now I’m yielding my tools to God for Him to use as He sees fit not how I feel things should go.

Have you yielded your tools to the Lord? God wants you to have an overriding ministry objective to your work life. He doesn’t want you to leave your work; He wants to work through your work. Allow Him to do that today.
