As I conclude my series on Tools let’s look at five priniciples from God’s Toolbox.
Principle one: He uses His tools (your talents) to bless others (Romans 12:4-8)
Principle two: He is not looking for special tools, but He uses them all - not leaving anyone out! (1 Corinthians 1:26-31)
Principle three: He has assembled a variety of tools and placed them as he wanted them.(1 Corinthians 12:12-18)
Principle four: He is currently using all available tools! Philippians 1:6 "And I am sure of this, that he who began a good work in you will bring it to completion at the day of Jesus Christ." 1 Thessalonians 2:13 "And we also thank God constantly for this, that when you received the word of God, which you heard from us, you accepted it not as the word of men but as what it really is, the word of God, which is at work in you believers."
And Principle five: He uses his tools to create other tools (2 Timothy 2:1-2 "You then, my child, be strengthened by the grace that is in Christ Jesus, and what you have heard from me in the presence of many witnesses entrust to faithful men who will be able to teach others also.")
Let’s each of us let God use us. He has a specific purpose for each one of us.
Dear Lord we thank You for making each of us special with a specific job to do. We pray that we would each be willing to be used today. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
