A message to the weary in service

First, As Psalm 68 highlights, we have a God whose heart breaks for the orphans, widows, helpless, lonely, etc. and if they have a special place in the heart of God, then they must find such a place in our hearts as well. (James 1:27.) So consider what you can do for these helpless ones. You can either give your time, money, talents or prayers. For it is when we witness His strength and splendor that we realize the wonderful and personal supervision the helpless receive from the Heavenly Father. But remember...

Secondly, We have a God who delights in impossibilities! John 6:5-13. So when the needs are overwhelming and the problems seem too big and we feel too insufficient to answer the call, then and only then can we look to the sufficiency of Jesus! We are insufficient but He lives in us and He is strong! He already has in mind what He is going to do and if He wants to allow you the priveledge to be apart of His plan or not. For every need does not constitute your calling. So acknowledge your limitations and trust Him for He already knows how He will meet the need. And lastly...

Finally, As Beth Moore so eloquently quotes from our very own Bible, Heaven is God's throne. Earth is His footstool. Awesome creatures never cease day or night singing, "Holy, Holy, Holy, Lord God Almighty." Lightening flashes from His throne. The winds do Hid bidding. The clouds are His chariot. The earth trembles at the sound of His voice. When He stands to His feet, His enemies are scattered. And yet this very One is our Abba, our Father, He demands and deserves our respect. Without it, we are powerless. Romans 8:15!

So whatever is over our heads, is under His feet! Just open up your arms, release the troubles into His care, keep your arms open in intercession to God, and when they are ready to return, they will find you waiting with your arms open wide! :) Prayer works wonders and when you see the answers, praise is inevitable! I witnessed it the whole month of June myself! Praise His glorious name and Behold Him do His thing! It is a priveledge we even get to wash feet with Him!
