A beautiful person spoke to me today and said, “you have no idea what you have done for me and my family. You have changed our lives.”
I felt very humbled and unworthy of such a comment but I know if I were honest, that my faithfulness and trying to follow God has been used by God to touch and change peoples’ lives. I appreciate that this probably sounds very boastful but we are all called to be the hands and voice of God to others.
Seeking God causes us to come face to face with God in such a manner that we are changed little by little into being more than we can be ourselves. This transformed person has a power to affect peoples’ lives because it is no longer we who are in control but Christ who increasingly lives in us.
Over time we can see this transformation in us. Our lives can be used by God to draw people to God.
If you seek God you will see how you have changed in your attitudes and actions and how God can use you.
This change is something we should want.
It will keep you humble and dependent on God because the more you change the more you realise that it is God at work in you and not your effort.
Lord use me to be your life changing presence in other people’s lives.
Father we make this prayer in the name of your Son Jesus through the power of the Holy Spirit.
