THE STORY OF JESUS: Luke 1:57-66
“For the Lord’s hand was with him.” (Luke 1:66)
As I read this verse, I sense the Lord saying the same to me.
Believe it or not, the Lord’s hand is with me too.
Not for my own gain or advantage, but to fulfill His purpose for me.
Like John, you and I also have a job to do for the Lord.
“One who is least in the kingdom of God is greater than John.” (Luke 7:28)
I make no claims to greatness, but God wants to use me too.
God has always enjoyed making a big impact through little people.
His hand increases the impact of what their little hands do.
A word of hope, an act of kindness, a listening ear.
John prepared the way for Jesus, but in a sense we do too.
As Jesus followers, our actions open the way for Jesus to work.
In the Lord’s hands, our little words and deeds become significant.
I am encouraged to remember that His hand is with me too.
May this inspire me to use my hands to do good for Him!
What do you sense the Lord saying to you?
Lord, I offer my hands to You again. May Your hand make their impact great!
