Are you the tool or the user of the tool?

July 13, 2008

Many times I have tried to tell God what I wanted to do for Him in ministry. Many times, those plans have failed. The book of Isiah tells us why.

Isaiah 10:15 BBE
(15) Will the axe say high-sounding words against him who is using it, or the blade be full of pride against him who is cutting with it? As if a rod had the power of shaking him who is using it, or as if a stick might take up him who is not wood.

You see, we are the tool not the maker. We need to be used the way that God wants to use us, not the way that we want to be used. If all the things that you are doing for God are failing, maybe it is time you got with God's plan.
