I Peter 4:10 (NIV) Each one should use whatever gift he has received to serve others, faithfully administering God’s grace in its various forms.
In our walk with the Lord, finding a way to help others is an expression of our Faith. It shows that we believe in the sovereignty of God. We don’t’ have to wait until the pain in our life is gone, because we know God can use it for good. We don’t have to wait to feel better or for things to get better to serve other people of God.
Finding a way to help others requires that you ask two questions: “What is God doing?” and “How can I get into the flow of the Lord’s activity?” When we ask these questions, ideas and inspiration will come. And once we begin doing this, the ‘why is this happening’ question, which once seemed so important, becomes irrelevant.
The best answer to why is always “What”! When we stop asking, “Why has God allowed this?” And begin asking, “What does God want me to do with it?”, we are then ready for God to start Divine work in us, and that prepares us for Ministry service. I love serving others and look forward to serving each of you my friends and family!
