God Can Use Anyone to Meet Others’ Needs

Imagine for a minute what it must have been like for Mary, a young woman of little means, with no power or authority or status to speak of. Suddenly an angel appears to tell her that God has chosen her to help usher in the greatest rescue plan of all time. Do you think for one second that she felt worthy, or capable or READY for such an important role? Nope. Mary was none of those things. But she was WILLING. The same is true for us. God can use anyone to meet others’ needs. We don’t have to feel ready or “called” or enough, we just simply need to be willing. As you lead your family this week, pray for each of your kids by name and pray the following prayer, placing each kid’s name in the blank: “God, use ____________ to meet other’s needs.”
