“For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in, I needed clothes and you clothed me, I was sick and you looked after me, I was in prison and you came to visit me.”
As kingdom living becomes more natural for you, it will be easier and easier for you to help and serve where you can. The needs in the world seem endless. The love of God is all around us and calling us to fill the gaps and to help with the needs. At first, some people get overwhelmed and are not sure what to put their time, efforts and giving too.
Listen for the whisper of the Holy Spirit, and use what you have on hand to be a blessing. For many people at first that is giving their time. Then as you expand in God’s promises there may be expansion into giving time and money. No need to measure what you give vs someone else. As you use your time, money, and talents to the best of your ability you will expand and increase and be able to help even more people. Eventually and often sooner than you might think, you can use your talents to help uplift and encourage people so that they increase their time, income and talents and they too expand their capacity to make a difference to others.
You may not even know who you are helping on a day to day basis. When you choose to live in the kingdom, opportunities to bless are all around us. The Lord is sending people your way. The Lord knows your capacity to help and serve and you continue to become more aware of who the Lord is putting on your path to be a blessing too!
LORD THANK YOU FOR YOUR GRACE. I KNOW IN THE PAST I LIKELY MISSED A LOT OF PEOPLE YOU HAVE SENT MY WAY. THANK YOU FOR CALLING ME INTO LIVING WITH YOU AND I TAKE THE CALL TO HELP AND SERVE AND ASK FOR AWARENESS EACH DAY SO THAT I AM READY, ABLE AND WILLING TO HELP SOMEONE WITH A NEED!
