As I sit here this morning, I cannot help but thank God for all the opportunities He sends my way. You know, I am finding out that God will bless you with gifts just so you can help others in need. It's that simple. You think you know all the things you know just because you went to school, or started a new hobby that turned into financial gain but God is saying, "I blessed you to be a blessing to others."
If you are a natural giver, it is sometimes easy to get caught up in the whole "I can't let them use me" feeling. Why? Because people ask you to do things or expect you to do things that they'd pay anybody else to do but you. Nevertheless, God showed me something. Sometimes you have to view your deeds as seeds and you sow them now not expecting a harvest. We all know seeds take time to grow, and just when you go to sleep a couple of nights and wake up a couple of mornings, the seeds are working for you to produce in your favor.
What I'm saying to you is don't get wearied in well doing, even if you feel used. Rest assure that God sees you and He will reward you in due season!
God even showed me something in John 9 that I have never seen. You know Jesus pass by the blind mind and because He pays attention to him, the disciples do also. The blind man never asked to be used for God's miracle, but God used Him (without him asking), so that He would be glorified. So my brothers and sisters, God will use you not because you asked Him to (cause God doesn't need your permission to use you), but so that He can get the glory and sometimes His leading the people to you for your help, is a GLORY MOVE.
Now instead of feeling used by people, know that you are being used by God; and no matter how it looks, feels, or seems---nothing just happens---and the person who thinks he or she is using you, were only set up by God to show that you my dears are truly His children. Be Blessed!
Now do you feel better about what you are doing for someone else? Are you determined to keep on giving and doing as unto the Lord? Let me hear from you!
