Be Prepared

Description

God has filled us with the Holy Spirit and many gifts. In order to be prepared for all God desires, we must do our part.

Today’s Reading: Exodus 31

 Key Verse: Exodus 31:3

And I have filled him with the Spirit of God, in wisdom, in understanding, in knowledge, and in all manner of workmanship.

In order to be prepared for all God desires, we must do our part. Yes, God will give us gifts, enabling us to do our part. God created gold, silver, copper (out of which bronze was made), jewels and silver. Bezalel, grandson of Hur, who lifted the hands of Moses, was prepared with his gifts to co-operate with God for God’s purpose. He was the chief artisan of the Tabernacle. God gave Moses the details but never intended that Moses would do it all by himself. We need the leadership of our pastors, and our pastors need us. As God has filled us with His Spirit, given us gifts “in wisdom, in understanding, in knowledge, and in all manner of workmanship,” let’s show up and say, “I’m here, Pastor. What do you need done?”

PRAYER FOR TODAY:

By Your grace, Lord God, I will show up at the Pastor’s study and ask, “Is there anything I can do to help you fulfill God’s call?” Lord, may I be willing to do a small task that no one but You and the Pastor will know about, or a big task which the whole congregation notices. May I not expect recognition or honor. I want to be Your loyal servant. In Jesus’ Name I pray, Amen!

100 PERSONAL WORDS:

The Boy Scouts’ motto is “Be Prepared.” I had the opportunity to be a Cub, a Scout, and at 18, a Scout Leader for a year. I had those two words drilled into me. I love to work with my hands as well as my heart and mind. Norma-Jean loves to serve too. A couple of years back, she took on a project of knitting toques for AIDS orphans in Africa. It gets cold in the highlands of Africa, particularly at night. I watched her for days as she knitted 55 of them. Many others joined her as Crossroads Missions promoted the “Toques for Africa” challenge. We received over 10,300 knitted toques by our 100 Huntley Street viewers! Our mission’s partner in Swaziland booked the National Stadium, filled it with AIDS orphaned children, and handed out these treasures, along with many other blessings. What joy this service brought to the heart of God and to the hearts and heads of the children. (Our mission partner for that project was Heart for Africa). I plan to practice what I’m preaching and find a way to help one of God’s leaders today. I know of a neighbor who may need help. I’ll visit them and ask what I can do.
