Here I am Lord, ...Send Someone Else
God called to him . . . . And he said, ’Here I am’ —Exodus 3:4
Here is a quote from today's devotional:
We are so busy telling God where we would like to go.
Yeah? Ain't that the truth?
Readiness for God means that we are prepared to do the smallest thing or the largest thing— it makes no difference. It means we have no choice in what we want to do, but that whatever God’s plans may be, we are there and ready.
The truth of the matter is that I don't want to do anything that is too hard. I'm a bit of a wimp that way. I've really been struggling with some stuff and I don't know how to handle it. I don't know how things are going to turn out. I'm not sure of anything. I've got a list of things I want and I often will dictate that list to God in the form of a prayer. Isn't that rather arrogant?
God has a lot of work to do with me.
