You Can Change the World

You have the capablity to change the world.

I'll say it again.

You have the capability to change the world.

We each have within us the same chance. We can be used greatly by God or not.

Maybe you are shaking your head right now and saying "not me." Maybe you believe you weren't designed for greatness. Maybe you think I have really lost my marbles making such a statement. Maybe I have, but I don't believe so.

You, like everyone else, have the capacity to acheive greatness in the kingdom of God. Your belief in this is the first step.

How dare I make such a statement?

I dare because when we believe that God can do great things through us, we take the first step to see amazing things by God. Notice I say "by God" When we yield to Him and are fully open to what ever He wants to do through us He can transform us. We, as a vessel of God are then open to be used greatly.

I believe God wants to use each of us for great things. It comes down to if we are willing. Are we willing to yield? Are we willing to put our own agenda aside? Are we willing to look like a fool or have people ridicule us? Are we willing to really believe?

It is when we step out on faith believing that God can do all things that He can use us for great things of the kingdom.

Our world needs help. Are you willing to be used greatly?

Isaiah 6:8 - Also I heard the voice of the Lord saying: "Whom shall I send, And who will go for Us?" Then I said "Here I am, send me."

This post is full of absolute truth, Sherri! God doesn't call the equipped (who's equipped anyway), He equips the called! And those, like you said, those who are willing! God bless you,

I never dreamed in my wildest dreams that God would use me for His glory, but He has. A messed up and broken woman such as myself has been used by God in so many ways to help others. If He can use someone like me, He can use anybody! Praise His name!

I'm ready and available. I really try to be sensitive to the Holy Spirit and see what He wants me to do.

Amen Sherri! The impossible in our lives is possible with God. He calls us to do things that we would never imagine! We can change the world.

Bless you!

This was such a great read. I loved the willingness to let go and be used. I often think when I make calls to government servants, I use it lightly that I am driven to do so. The difference is that I am not mad or mean when I do it. God Bless

Hi Sherri! I am amazed that we both wrote on the same topic... God certainly orchestrates everything! I especially like your ending, "...
It is when we step out on faith believing that God can do all things that He can use us for great things of the kingdom...." Amen, Sherri and I hope you are well!

God Bless!
