A young woman I met one time at a hotel where I was staying when I was on the road full-time for Jesus and my ministry work decided in the middle of one night to kill herself. She had an exact plan and apparently was ready to proceed. From what I recall of the story she told me, she looked down and saw the Finding the Light booklet I had given her which contains my personal story and the Gospel message about being saved from our sins and hell and having a forever relationship with the Lord Jesus Christ instead. She decided not to take her life and told me the story the next day. God had saved her life through the little bit of time I had taken to speak with her when we had crossed paths at the hotel and through that booklet and my story.
I believe there is a message for all of us in this. We have countless opportunities throughout our lives for God to use us to love, pray for, encourage, bless, share with, give to, help, support, share the Gospel with, minister to, etc. a world in need of Jesus and His love.
To be used by God to the utmost, we need to be fully devoted to Jesus, fully surrendered to Jesus, sensitive to the Holy Spirit of God who lives in His followers, obedient, and faithful in loving and serving God and others with all our hearts.
Imagine if every single day we cried out to God to fill us with His Holy Spirit and to use us for His glory! Let this very day be the one we begin to be humbly and wholly and forever HIS! Amen!
“For you, brethren, have been called to liberty; only do not use liberty as an opportunity for the flesh, but through love serve one another.” Galatians 5:13 NKJV
