“He proclaimed the kingdom of God and taught about the Lord Jesus Christ – with all boldness and without hindrance!” Acts 28:31.
Verse chosen from today’s Bible reading; Numbers 8-9 and Acts 28.
I have had laryngitis for several days.
Trying to teach teenagers to drive without a voice has been a large challenge.
Besides being a challenge, it has added my voice to my collection of things that God gives me.
How do I use my voice? Now that it is limited, I have had some time to think about this.
I am not assured that I will always be able to speak. Are there words that I want others to hear? For sure there are. But I am slow to speak, assuming that I will have time later. That is Satan lying again! I am terminal. My voice is terminal.
I must make the Godly most of what I have been given. My hearing works. Am I listening to others? My feet work. Am I going where He wants me to go?
Today’s verse has Paul telling others about who Jesus is and what Jesus did and he’s under house arrest! I am not confined anywhere. How am I using that blessing to please Him?
So many questions have come into my head during this bout of laryngitis. Can’t help but think that God was involved.
“Lord, I have been blessed by You. Empower me to use what I have been given to rightly represent You in every detail of my life. Prick my conscience when I’m messing up so that I can make the needed changes. I love You, Father.”
How effectively do we use the many things that God has given us?
