Dear God, help me to take whatever is given and make it large for you.....

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.  Isaiah 6 : 8

God causes wonderful and significant things to happen in your life. He blesses and gifts you in many ways. Then it is up to you to respond to what God has done God's touch on your life wakes you to obligation, responsibility, and commitment. God moves in you, and then you move out and on for God.

When an alarm clock goes off in the morning, it wakes you up. But that's as much as an alarm clock can do. It can not drag you out of bed. Getting up is your responsibility. God touches your heart with presence and call. It is then up to you to respond in faith and dedication. God acts in your life, and he waits for the response of your obedience and trust.

Commit to the Lord whatever you do, and your plans will succeed.  Proverbs 16:3


This is from a devotional I am using now and it really touched my heart today. I thought it might touch someone elses heart as well. I am so much like a child that the understanding of the alarm clock and my response to it is easily transferred to the movement of the Lord's presence in my own life and my response to Him. I so want to be one who says to the Lord , " Here am I" How about this as a challenge for you my blog readers...What is the Lord moving in your heart? What is He calling you to respond to. What has He given and how large can you make it for Him.
