"god Help Me"

  1. I've said to God so many times, "use me", "Im ready, use me."
    Yet as I read a message this morning, I broke. I cried and I thought "God I don't know what to say or do".
    Later on I listened to "God help me" by plum. I played it maybe three times. On the last go the verse, "Help me to do whatever you would ask of me" hit me in a new way. I don't have to know what to say or do, at least not in of myself. Because it's not about what I do, but what God does through me.
    I don't have to figure it out myself. I don't have to be superwoman. Im not the hero. And should I ever take the credit for what is really His work, may He cut me right back down to size.
    I am not alone. Because its not about me.
    Its about Him.
    " help me to do whatever You may ask of me. Feeling so alone here and I know that You're faithful but I can barely breathe. God help me."

    He has been using you since the day you were born. Just your desire to want to be used by Him is proof that He is using you. Everything you are experiencing right now are things that will one day be a testimony that you can share with someone who is right where you are today. Line upon line, precept upon precept did He lay the foundation of the Gospel that we may build upon. Everyone has the same foundation but not everyone builds the same structure of dwelling. What do you feel in your heart to do....ministry? healing, salvation, service, missions, teaching.....God gives us the desires of our hearts...many think this means if you want something say for instance a better job...then this is you hearts desire....I tend to believe this means HE literally Gives us the desires of our heart...the desire to want to serve Him for example. In any case, remember this....It’s easy to despise the day of small beginnings. Small beginnings often come with hard work and little help. Small beginnings usually offer tall resistance and modest encouragement. Small beginnings typically see limited budgets and abundant setbacks. Nevertheless, whatever God has called you to do, “Do not despise these small beginnings, for the Lord rejoices to see the work begin” (Zech. 4:10, NLT). Also,
    Luke 16:10New Living Translation (NLT)
    10 “If you are faithful in little things, you will be faithful in large ones. But if you are dishonest in little things, you won’t be honest with greater responsibilities.

    So I just want to encourage you to remain steadfast. Be not weary in well doing for in due season you shall receive your just reward.
    You are right where God wants you to be....and the fact that you are "seeking" more of Him pleases Him. If you seek me, you shall find me.....

    Read your post again, and again I say, Amen! God has given me that same revelation, but in a different way. If we would only learn to rest in Him and obey. The hymn "Trust and Obey" comes to mind.

    Good subject

    Looking back at the beginning of my walk with the Lord. I meet Jesus and then got born again. Now picture yourself as a new born baby crowing around on the floor,exploring your new world. A year has gone by now and Jesus is the the room. He knows that this is the day you want to learn to walk with him. He helps you up and you take you first step.
    What is is this first step.
    Jesus puts a desire in your heart to go or phone this friend you have to talk to them.
    You are out shopping and you see this small item and think,oh my friend ___ would like this.
    Later on you find out how blessed that person was when you called and same thing with the gift.
    Jesus just used you to meet a meed or say I love you.

    You are maturing when you respond to the small things He puts on your heart. What come neck.
    Hearing His voice,John 10

    My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me:

    yes Jesus speaks to you. Jesus is the perfect relationship,if the person in a relationship doe not speak to you, is that a perfect relationship,take time to get along with Jesus to pray about[Prayer is talking to Jesus or The Father and by faith Jesus or The Father will respond with their voice. Jesus tough me this lesson,How to discern your though life.
    Once you get the revelation on this and you push forward,in faith. Every forward step you take is by FAITH. You speak it out,Father by Faith I step out,take a step forward. That is putting action to what you just said.
    You are growing up. No more dippers for you..There is a progression in our growth, 1.Being a servant of Jesus.2.Becoming a friend of Jesus.3.Son ship,being like Jesus.

    I am excited for GOD to use me, but so far, He has not used me yet. The thought of serving Him does excite me, thinking I can be of some use, me, a puny little human being (GOD has increased my humility, praise be to Him). I guess I have to learn to wait on Him because He has not used me for anything yet.

    I have prayed several times for GOD to show me what He wants me to do, and to use me in any way He pleases, but so far, nothing. I just praise and worship him and pray all day long.

      What's impressed on me is that many of us don't see when we are being used by God because we don't see any affects. We think we have to do something big and see big affects. But sometimes the smallest things make the biggest ripples. Like saying something encouraging to another person and giving them hope. It may seem like a small thing. But to affect that person's life we had to be in the right place at the right time. And say just the right words. Such moments are not accidental.

      That's God at work in my opinion

    "Because it's not about what I do, but what God does through me." Amen!
    May God bless you as you continue to yield yourself to His working in you to conform you to the image of His Son. (Romans 8:28-29) Praying that He will cover you with His peace and enable you to rest securely in His love. :praying:
