Wanting to Serve

“Comfort ye, comfort ye my people,” (Isaiah 40:1)

November 7, 2017

Dear Julie:

I am a firm believer in our God. I believe Christ died for our sins, and I thank him for it. I know there is no problem too big for God and I know he carries me through them. My situation is this: sometimes I feel as if I’m not doing something right for God, and I don’t have the close relationship with him I long for because I can’t talk to people the way you, Joyce Meyer, or TD Jakes, etc. can talk and give advice to his people.

I am a sinner and I pray and ask for forgiveness believing I am forgiven. I’m asking that you pray for me that God draws me closer and uses me as he pleases!! I want to be able to help people and save souls! –Wanting to Serve

Dear Wanting to Serve:

Here’s the deal. We are all sinners, saved by grace and raised to new life as God’s servants on this earth. As God says in Ephesians and Romans, He gifts people differently and we are to use those gifts as we recognize them. We are not to compare ourselves with one another but rather focus on our own gifts. We are all useful in God’s creative plan.

One way to know what your gift is is to focus on what you like to do and the experiences you’ve had over time. How has God uniquely prepared you?
Focus on your strengths, and trust in God to show you where He wants you to serve Him. God bless you, dear one. Love, Julie
