Today as I was reading, I came across a very familiar passage of scripture that was paraphrased in a meaningful way.
God can use anyone, anywhere to be His instrument of provision for those who trust Him. (Phil 4:13)
Many times when we are waiting on God to do something great, our main question words are how, when and who?
1) How are you going to do it God? We ask this because all of our natural possibilities seem to have depleted.
2) When are you going to do it God? We ask this because it seems as if time had run out and gone past "our" deadline.
3) Who is going to do it God? We ask this question because we understand that God uses people to carry out His will. In our eyes, there is no one to help. Everyone we know has done what they could and some nothing at all, but it still seems like not enough.
Whenever the enemy and even your own intellect try to box you in, remember this...
God can use anyone, anywhere to be His instrument of provision for those who trust Him. God has all of our "How's," "Who's"," and "When's" under control. How? by His mighty working power. Who? Whoever He chooses or rather has already chosen. When? At His appointed time.
God is well capable of His job of using whom He will to carry out His purpose. So, If God has that covered, what should we do? Trust. Today, I invite you to join in me in practicing trust. Pr. 3:5 say "Trust in the Lord with all of your heart and lean not to your own understanding." Even though God gave us good sense and an understanding, in cases involving faith, we can't lean so heavily on what we know, we must trust and lean on God's abilities. Casting all of our care on Him, knowing He is capable and willing to complete the good work He has begun in us. Sooner than later, someone from somewhere you least expected will arrive as God's instrument to open a door, deliver a word, give a strategy or even provide a physical blessing that you are waiting for.
