“Then he said to his disciples, “The harvest is plentiful, but the workers are few. Ask the Lord of the harvest, therefore, to send out workers into his harvest field.”
I remember the first time I heard something different from the prayer, “Lord, use me”; I was on a bus full of brethren like myself, and the prayer that day was “, Lord, please use me”. That is one of the noblest of prayers anyone can pray, of course. But that day, a different prayer rang in my heart—”Lord, make me usable.”
In the passage above, we see that there is so much to be done, but it is as if the available ones have yet to avail themselves to be made instruments of great use in the Father’s hands. God wants to send you forth. So many things are happening now that break His heart, and His eyes are roaming around the earth, looking for who will go at His behest.
“Also, I heard the voice of the Lord, saying, “Whom shall I send, and who will go for us? Then said I, Here am I; send me.” Isa. 6:8. In the Book of Isaiah, God asked that question, but the preceding verses show precisely what He does to a man who volunteers to go for Him. He purges you. He moulds you. He strips you of yourself. He rearranges your life to suit Him. He prepares you for the people He’s sending you to.
And the process is not a walk in the park. So, do you want to be used? Then, stay under God so He can make you a vessel unto honour. Know this: God wants to send you forth. He wants to see His Glory shine through your life and reach out to the struggling, wounded souls. But He can only send you if you avail yourself to His making process. So, submit, and submit again. Surrender all that you are and follow the path as God leads you so that you might become a mighty instrument in the hands of the Lord.
God bless you.
- Lord, help me to submit to be made under your hands.
- Father, I pray for mercy. Insist on me, so I become one of the labourers ready to go at your beckoning.
- Dear Father, I ask for the grace to stay yielded to You all the days of my life. Amen.
