Opportunity

“If you wait for perfect conditions, you will never get anything done. Keep on sowing your seed, for you never know which will grow—perhaps it all will.”And as Jesus said to His followers, “But you will receive power when the Holy [God’s] Spirit comes on you, and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.” God will present the opportunities for us to share His Gospel with those around us. Witnessing may look different for each of us, and at times it will be a one-time conversation, while other times it will be a continual conversation until God’s timing is right for the individual. The important thing is that we are consistent in telling others about Christ with our words and actions. Consistency leads to building trust. When people trust us, they will be more willing to hear the message we want to share.If you are afraid to witness, like I once was, tell God about it and ask that He give you the words to share what He wants you to share. IF we are available for God to use, He will do so. After all these many years I still pray the following prayer every morning and plan to keep doing so for the rest of my life. I encourage you to do the same:”Dear God I am available again today. Please make me usable and use me to be an effective witness for Jesus today, and please help me to be ‘as Jesus’ in some way to every life I touch. Thank You for hearing and answering my prayer. Gratefully, in Jesus’s name, amen.”
