Do you or have you ever seen yourself as a carrier of His Kingdom? This is a weighty responsibility. Do you find yourself not thinking about it because it’s too much responsibility?
We are called to be His vessels. I love that because a vessel is not responsible for making itself or filling itself. It’s soul responsibility is to be available for use. Vessels do not even have a say in what it is filled with. It can be soup one cold winter day and then iced tea on a hot summer day.
So as a believer, it is not our responsibility to fill ourselves but to be available for the King to fill us. We also don’t have a say in how we are used, this is tough for us sometimes. I know it is tough for me.
So how can we be available? We spend time with the King through prayer, fasting and bible reading. Books by Christians are a nice side dish but should never be the main course. God’s word should always be the main course.
As God fills us then He can use us to advance His Kingdom. We need to be vessels that are over flowing.
Chris Tiegreen puts it perfectly, “ You are called to be a fount of life, love, faith, joy, peace, wisdom, and comfort for the people you know.” This is from his daily Devotional, Praying In Faith Devotional, I highly recommend it.
So, as you read and pray and it seems like Gods not there, remember this verse, “Keep on asking, and you will receive what you ask for. Keep on seeking, and you will find. Keep on knocking, and the door will be opened to you. For everyone who asks, receives. Everyone who seeks, finds. And to everyone who knocks, the door will be opened. “LUKE 11:9-10
Once we are filled then we will be carriers of His Kingdom.
