Lord, Use Me

March 7 | Psalm 22:9-11

“For you are the one who brought me out of the womb. You made me trust you at my mother’s breasts. On you was I thrown from the womb, from my mother’s womb you have been my God. Do not be far from me because distress is near. There is none to help.” (Psalm 22:9–11)

Some people seem to have destiny in their bones. They know what they want to do and who they want to become. They don’t worry about what college to go to, which job offers to accept, who to marry. But most people need career counselors.

Jesus knew his destiny. Ever since he began his ministry, he knew where he was headed. John uses the phrase, “His hour had not yet come” to describe Jesus’ goal of the cross. He knew what he would do from a very young age.

Whether you know your destiny or not, Jesus came to earth to die on the cross and be raised to life for you. No one was coming to save Jesus. But he came to save you. When trouble was near, Jesus trusted in the Father.

When trouble comes your way, trust in God. He will lead and guide you, walk beside you, through every trial. He has called you out of sin and death to serve him, the Living God.

Action Step: Commit to serving the Lord in a specific way today. What can you do for him? Is there something he has prompted you to do? What are your gifts? Who needs to know Jesus is real? Listen to his voice and do something great for God today.

Jesus, I want to serve you with all my heart. Give me an open door to share you with someone today. Help me use my gifts for you. What can I do to serve you? My ears are open, and my heart is full.
