I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go; I will guide you with my eye. Psalm 32:8 NKJV
My friend’s father liked to have a glass of water with his dinner. His father could drink down several glasses. My friend’s job was to keep the glass full until his father finished eating.
If my friend’s father wanted another drink he would just look at his empty glass without saying a word. My friend would get up from the table and fill his father’s glass.
Jesus said, “I can do only what I see the Father doing.”
Ministry is seeing what God is doing and joining Him in His work. It is doing what God wants us to do regardless of what that may be. We should only do what the Father does!
Over the years my wife and I have seen things other people could not see. We tried to tell other people what we could see but we might as well have been speaking another language. God opened our eyes because He wanted us to do something.
God the Father sent Jesus into the world to save people. Jesus is sending us out to serve them!
God does not call the prepared to serve Him. He prepares the called. We all know that. Do we see what Jesus is doing? Do we join Jesus in the work He is doing?
Jesus wants us to partner with Him. We may not be ready for the great and mighty things Jesus wants to do in us and through us. That is not a problem for the Lord. Jesus delights in doing great things with ordinary people like you and me!
Jesus is looking for people who want to learn His ways. He is looking for men and women who will surrender to His will. Jesus is looking for people who will let Him do great and mighty things in and ithrough their lives.
Jesus is looking for willing hearts not spiritual superstars. He is looking for people who know only God can save people. If you are willing to serve the Lord Jesus will prepare you. Jesus will open your eyes, unstop your ears and loosen your tongue!
If God is going to prepare us and do all the work what is our part? We must draw near to Jesus. Jesus wants us to have the type of relationship my friend had with his father. Jesus wants us to be so close to the Father He can guide us with His eye!
Jesus wants us to see people as He does. Jesus wants us to know what He is doing and join with Him as He restores broken hearts lives and families. Jesus wants us to watch Him raise people from eternal death unto eternal life!
