If I look at my own journey, I’ll admit that it hasn’t always be easy nor did it play out how I wanted at the time. But, what’s great is our ability to look back and see that its this journey that really matters. I know that’s so cliche, but without these experiences, we wouldn’t be who we are today. God is always preparing and always using. I have to remind myself that a lot. Its not that God is just preparing me to use me later, He’s using me now.
Maybe you need to be reminded of that too. God is using you now, or He wants to. Even if you are called to be a senior pastor and you are the youth pastor, God can use you now. Maybe you are called to start your own company, but you are working as an assistant, God can still use you now.
If we embrace that God is not only preparing us to use us later, but he is in fact using us now, we would have more joy in our current circumstances, which would enable us to be used even more.
Are you losing joy in current circumstances because you are waiting to be used?
