21 Prayers Every Christian Should Pray

DAY EIGHT – “USE ME”

Today’s Scripture Reading: Ephesians 2:10

The idea of being “used” is not exactly what any of us aspire to. It elicits feelings of being taken advantage of, disregarded, or even abused. But, let me assure you, when we volunteer ourselves to be useful for God it’s a beautiful thing. It’s beautiful because it’s actually what we were uniquely created for. You were lovingly designed by God to accomplish His noble purposes for this world. So, when we ask God to use us for His glory, it leads us to a great sense of accomplishment and fulfillment. 

As you make plans and goals for the coming year, I want to encourage you to be open to what God has to say to you. Ask Him what He wants for you in the year ahead. Make yourself available to God to be used by Him to love others and to accomplish His Kingdom purposes in the world.
