His Hands. His Feet.

But if we are the body
Why aren't His arms reaching?
Why aren't His hands healing?
Why aren't His words teaching?
And if we are the body
Why aren't His feet going?
Why is His love not showing them there is a way?
There is a way
"If We Are The Body-Casting Crowns"

When Christ left the earth He entrusted us with a big job, to be His hands and feet. We are to go throughout the earth to preach the gospel. But why oh why is it something that is so difficult? It shouldn't be-simply because as Christians we have the Holy Spirit living inside us! After Jesus ascended into heaven the disciples knew what had to be done and how to go about doing it. They did amazing things for God because of this! They definitely knew who they were in Christ and weren't afraid to show it! That's how we should still be today!

John 14:1212 “Most assuredly, I say to you, he who believes in Me, the works that I do he will do also; and greater works than these he will do, because I go to My Father.

The reason I'm writing this today is because I feel like God is really speaking to my heart in this area. I have been letting fear stop me from being His hands and feet. And that is just not okay-at all. My words have power, I can make a difference! The enemy lies to me daily telling me that my voice doesn't matter. That people won't listen to me if I tell them about Jesus! But that's a lie. Straight up. I'm  not taking it anymore! I need to be a vessel for God, because if I don't who will?

This morning I was thinking back on this customer I had at work the other day, how I felt like the I was supposed to minister to her. So I began to pray for her. I prayed that the Lord would send a Godly laborer across her path. As soon as I prayed that I heard a familiar still, small voice. "You are my Godly laborer." Ouch. I was the one God wanted to minister to her-and I didn't do it. I let her pass me by out of fear. That's just not okay!

2 Timothy 1:7For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind.

 Seriously, how awesome is that?! So with power like that living inside us, what other choice do we have?! We have to speak! We have to be bold! It's crazy NOT to!

So my prayer today is that I would allow the Lord to use me as He sees fit. I want to have that same boldness the disciples did!

Heavenly Father,
I'm sorry for letting oportunites to minister pass me by. Please show me who you want me to minister to, Lord. Please make me your hands and your feet! I want to fulfill my God given destiny! Help me to know I have nothing to fear! Please help me to be a light shining for You wherever I go, whatever I do. Thank you Lord!
In Jesus' name, Amen!
