Stir It Up

Last week I was at a bomb . Have you ever watched a fire begin to burn down to the point that all you have left are coals? It looks as though there is no fire left, but when you take a fresh log and toss it on top of those coals and stir it around a bit, it suddenly ignites, and you have a whole new fire going.  

We need to take advantage of the opportunities that are out there. Some want to have big, visible ministries. They want the applause of men. But if we will humble ourselves and take what we have and offer it to if we are willing to do what He has set before us and be faithful in the little things, then He will give us something better than visible ministries or applause – He’ll give us the and joy that comes from pleasing Him. 

Today on my 59th birthday says Ray, “Stir up the which is in you…” (2 Tim1:6). The phrase stir up the means to fan it into full flame. The truth is as I reflect over my years there are live coals in my life like yours, that we have allowed the fire to burn down. We haven’t been using the and talents that God has given us. It’s time to fan them into full flame again. It’s time to be reignited. It’s time to say, “please Lord, use me for Your glory until You return?” 

Stir up the gift of God which is in you through the laying on of my hands” (2 Timothy 1:6). 

Let’s Pray 

Yahweh, thank you for another year of life. Father, I pray I do not neglect Your Spirit or the gifts You have given me. Give me the courage to use these gifts and the to not use them for my glory, but You and Your glory. God, me see the work You have ready for me and embrace that work with willingness and joy. In Christ’s Name, Amen.
