An Unplanned Passenger
God said “I have people for that. You are one cog in that wheel. You did good son.” God went on to say “If you keep opening your heart to me, and spending time practicing to hear my voice, and open your heart to worship, you’ll notice more and more of these unique moments in life. It’s important to know about Favor, believe in Favor, be ready and willing to declare Favor over your life. BUT… Favor is not a magic spell. It’s not something you can declare every morning, without being in relationship with Me, and expect it to work the Favor Magic in your life. Favor is a byproduct of relationship with me. If you are deepening your relationship with me, Favor will come. Listen to Me. Hear Me. Obey what you hear. Favor is just as likely to use you to bless someone as it is to use someone to bless you.”
A little oil goes a long way!
Well, the fact is that this is a noble aspiration, and a complete LIE! You have to sow seed before you get fruit. When you don't have much, you still do the same thing you do when you do have much. You seek God as your source, and you keep your heart and mind open to be used by God at a moments notice. You keep your attitude humble and open, and be aware of your surroundings.
If you are a widow with one son, in a three year drought, and you only have a little oil and flour... then a man comes along and asks you to bake a cake for him... you can decide to help the guy, and risk giving from what little you have, or keep what little you have for yourself. In God's economy the first option produces results, if it's Spirit Led.
I'm not concerned with my "reward" or "return on investment". I'm going to believe that God has my back, and there will be something coming. But I'm going to keep my focus on what I can do next. It was exciting. I'm ready for the next opportunity to do something for someone... what opportunity will be next?
In other words... will I #BeStillBeLed?
And now I leave you with a question:
What do you think... when has God used YOU to help someone?
