Wait a Second?!


Ever got busy in your job? You sit there, fill out some forms, check a few emails and file some important documents. You then take a moment and reflect on the fact that you didn't sign up to become an administrator, but rather a change agent.

This may be my story at the moment, but I know I'm not the only one. I speak to people who are lumped with the day to day expectations of their position; phone calls, emails, phone calls, faxes, signatures, memos, answering machines...

One day you step back and say, 'Hey, wait a second, it's all about Jesus.' You then begin to find ways to connect people with the Saviour, to ignite a flame in another, to bless a friend, to encourage a work colleague. You find yourself praying for the salvation of your city, as you fulfill another mundane administrative expectation.

I understand some are gifted administrators, and I thank God for them, but I'm thinking of those who are stuck in a rut. Those who find themselves in a place of frustration, of indesiveness, of purposelessness, and angst. God calls you to rise above the circumstance, and endure, commit, stick it out. Some day soon God is going to use you in an amazing way, and you need to be in that place where God wants you. Smack bang in the middle of God's will. Stick it out. Outlast it. God will use you; trust Jesus to take your life and use every minute. Be ready for the Spirit of God to open an opportunity, a discussion, a breakthrough. It happens - you bump into a long lost friend, or someone who's walked away from faith, and the Spirit uses you. You email someone a thought, and the Spirit touches their life. You SMS a mate and tell her God's got plans for her.

Be ready. In the mundane, be ready. Every day holds opportunities for the Kingdom of God. Be ready to take hold of them and run with it. Fix your eyes on Jesus, not on the frivolous.
