Daily Devotional for Thursday May 5, 2011
Doing Something Great for God
Doing something great for God! Each day we wake up, and during the course of that day we can choose to do something great for God, or we can choose to do something totally in rebellion to God. We don't have to just sit back, and allow the flow of life to move us along. We have the choice each day to do something POSITIVE . . something GREAT FOR GOD!!!
This morning, you woke up. You had had your normal daily schedule in front of you. Chances are great that at the end of the day you will go to sleep. At the end of the day, WHAT DID YOU REALLY ACCOMPLISH OTHER THAN LIVE ANOTHER DAY???
One of the points I try to drive home in my Devotionals is that tomorrow is promised to none of us. We all are guilty of taking our days for granted. We all WASTE the better portion of the day just "getting by". Most will one day grow old, get sick, and lay on their death bed wondering where the time went, where all the days of their life went. The other night as I got out of the shower, I took my washcloth and began to wring the water out of it. As I did that over and over, I realized that this is what we must do to each day.
GET EVERY DROP OF LIFE OUT OF EACH DAY, BECAUSE ONE DAY THIS LIFE, AS WE KNOW IT, WILL BE OVER.
So the challenge that I bring to you today is this.
TODAY . . . DO SOMETHING GREAT FOR GOD!!!
God has given each of us, given YOU, special gifts. The Bible says that people perish for lack of vision. Where does vision come from? God!!! Where did the vision for Liveprayer come from? God!!! Where will the vision you need to do something great for God to come from? God!!! Start praying. God will give you the vision, and He will open the doors. The ONLY thing stopping you from doing something great for God TODAY is YOU!!!
I don't care if you are 15 or 85 . . . today you can do something great for God!!! In this life, we can either sit back and let our life pass us by, we can sit back and simply go with the flow and let each day slip past us until life is over, or we can take control of our life and make a difference. We can make a difference for God!!!
I love you and care about you so much. I will be praying for you today. In the name of Jesus, the Son of the living God, you are here to make a difference for God. It is what God has called each of us to do. Peter made a difference for God.
Paul made a difference for God. John Wesley made a difference for God. Billy Graham is making a difference for God. What is the difference between you and Peter, or Paul, or John Wesley, or Billy Graham? NOTHING!!! The ONLY difference is that these men made a decision to make their life count for the Kingdom!
I prayed this morning as I typed these words, that if only ONE person, only ONE person of over 2.4 million that will read these words in the next days will accept this challenge . . . millions of lives can be changed for eternity!!!
YOU CAN BE THAT ONE!!!
Many of you have been called by God but have run, just like I did for many years. God is speaking to you today to stop running and give Him your life. The Bible says that what man meant for evil, God meant for good. Even though some will chose to rebel against God today, you can choose to something GREAT FOR GOD!!!
