What’s the use?
As each of us finds our place in serving the Lord we have a great opportunity. An opportunity to find our niche in God’s plan and see how His plan involves us. His awesome, perfect plan not only changes us, but also changes the lives of all those we meet. Not because of who we are and what we can do, but because of who God is and what He will do through us. We are part of the TEAM.
I know some very presumptuous people who minimize God’s plan in their life and just say, “Whatever will be, will be” and they think their part in this whole God plan is not significant. They are wrong and have believed “the lie” and continually stand on the sideline when God wants them in the game. They are living the “I” and God wants them to experience the TEAM.
So, as worship leaders and worshippers my challenge is to get up and get off the sideline of no commitment and get out there on the field and follow God’s plan. God has a great use for you in His game plan and now is the time to cinch up your gospel shoes and sprint to the line, ready to hit something. God will take care of everything else and then you will start to see victory on a daily basis. You will never be the same. Then you see the USE God has for you. Finally, be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power. Put on the full armor of God so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes. For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms. Therefore put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand. Stand firm then, with the belt of truth buckled around your waist, with the breastplate of righteousness in place, and with your feet fitted with the readiness that comes from the gospel of peace.
You’ve got it….Now use it!!
