Thursday Man Church Assignment
“Here I am, Lord. Send me!”— That’s a powerful prayer to pray.
As a follow-up from yesterday’s assignment – Isaiah said of God’s whispers: “The Sovereign LORD has given me an instructed tongue, to know the word that sustains the weary. He wakens me morning by morning, wakens my ear to listen like one being taught. The Sovereign LORD has opened my ear; I have not been rebellious, I have not turned away.”
Do you see and hear that – “The Sovereign Lord opened my ear”? God can and will speak into your life…you simply allow Him to. No magic bullets, no magic words or meditations – just a simple awareness of His presence and an awe of His goodness – AND YOU HEAR.
God also prepared another prophet, Jeremiah, early in life to pay attention to heaven-sent wisdom he would receive along the way: “But the LORD said to me, ‘Do not say , I am too young.’ You must go to everyone I send you to and say whatever I command you.” God has spoken clearly to many of his followers: “Surely the Sovereign LORD does nothing without revealing his plan to his servants the prophets.”
Don’t make this complicated – young, old, seasoned or rookie – God will direct your paths when you STOP and spend quality time with Him. Again, “Surely the Sovereign LORD does nothing without revealing his plan to his servants…”
