"Now no one after lighting a lamp covers it over with a container, or puts it under a bed; but he puts it on a lampstand, so that those who come in may see the light. (Luke 8:16 NASB)
What is amazing about these divinely orchestrated encounters is not that God chooses to place someone in the path of the fire of God. What is amazing is that God chooses us as one of His instruments.
How useful are we as instruments in the hand of God? Are we available and willing to be used? Would we prefer to choose our encounters or do we embrace whatever and whomever comes our way?
Today, pray that we and our loved ones would allow the fire of God to shine brightly so that all with whom we come in contact would clearly see the path of God for them. Pray for hearts that are equally receptive to the most pleasant and the least pleasant person who comes our way.
Don't forget to pray for the terrorist of the week, Nasir Al Wuhayshi, especially that his plans for evil would be thwarted.
Praise: at last count, at least 60 of the Nigerian schoolgirls have escaped! Keep praying!
