Hello! I’ve been reading Relentless by Jennie Allen and it is SO GOOD! I would highly recommend checking it out! If you know me, you’ll realize that I turn just about anything into a life lesson… Yeah I’m one of those people. So Jennie said this and it really got me thinking, “He is after the people around you, and he pursues them through us.”
“God did this so that they would seek him and perhaps reach out for him and find him, though he is not far from any one of us.” Acts 17:27
Maybe the reason God placed you in that person’s life, is so that He could pursue them through you… Sometimes we get caught up in the “why” and never move on to “use me.” So what would happen if instead of wondering why God has us in the situation we are in, and just said “use me?”
Sometimes our lives seem so random and all over the place that God couldn’t possibly be working in it… This could not be further from the truth! God has His hand on your life. He is with you at all times! He will never leave you nor forsake you! So like the verse above says, He is not far from any one of us!
So when you understand this you have to accept that He is using YOU to pursue the people around you. This applies to your family, friends, co-workers, and ANYONE you meet. I believe God sets up divine appointments… So what are you going to do about that? Are you going to positively influence the people around by pointing them to Christ, or not do anything about it?
Today I’m going to challenge you to take advantage of your situation… Listen to His voice. Is He trying to speak to your friend through you? Has he placed you in someone’s life to point them to Christ? Pray that God can use you today! I’m telling you there is no better feeling than when you realize that God has you in someone’s life for HIS WILL!
