Set Up By God

Set Up By God by Keith Cook

"This is what Hezekiah did throughout Judah, doing what was good and right and faithful before the LORD his God. In everything that he undertook in the service of God's temple and in obedience to the law and the commands, he sought his God and worked wholeheartedly. And so he prospered." 2 Chronicles 31:20,21

There are three words that represent how God has set up every believer for success and fulfillment. Believers down through the ages have all had the same opportunities for greatness and servanthood. Our Lord wants us to know that we are privileged, held responsible, and have a great capacity to serve.

1. Privileged - Every Christian is privileged to have a life in Christ. It is a glorious thing to be called "Christ Like" and it is even more of a privilege to have the opportunity to get to know Christ better each day through our times of devotion and walking in the light of His revealed will.

2. Responsible - Every child of God has a God given responsibility to do the work of the kingdom and to be ambassadors and servants of Jesus Christ. We must do the work of the evangelist. We must take up the cross of Jesus as our own. The cup of cold water and the gifts of compassion must be shared.

3. Capacity - Once a person comes to Christ their capacity for good and their resources for service are expanded. This happens by the filling of the Holy Spirit. The Word of God says that each day we can be filled to overflowing, our filling will result in boldness, and our boldness will result in decisions for Christ.

Today you and I are privileged, held responsible, and have a great capacity to do God's will. Oh that we could live up to those three words and see lives changed because of our witness and the power of God's Holy Spirit ministering through us!

Daily Prayer Focus: Praise God for the opportunity to be privileged, to be held responsible, and the great capacity to serve.
