The Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve,
and to give his life as a ransom for many.
Matthew 20:28 (CSB)
At lunch, my new friend opened up and shared some struggles going on in her life, and I was able to speak truth into her life. When I got home, I shared with my husband about our time together. “It was the first time in a very long time I felt like God had used me,” I told him.
He looked at me and solemnly said, “God uses you in this family every day, baby.” His words meant the world to me. I have been thinking about them for months. Chances are, you need to hear the same thing.
God uses you every day.
When you cook dinner for a group of friends, He uses you. When you are sitting in a cubicle, answering emails, He uses you. When you get up in the middle of the night to rock your crying child, He uses you.
Sometimes in life’s mundane moments, it can be difficult to see that, can’t it? But it’s true. God created us in His image for such a time as this. And so today, right where you are, I want you to pray and ask God to show you how He is using you. Because if you are like me, you don’t think of God using you when you are wiping snotty noses and trying to get dinner on the table after working all day. But He is. He uses you every day.
