The Weak and Willing
So Samuel grew, and the Lord was with him and let none of his words fall to the ground. - 1 Samuel 3:19
The Christian who has committed his or her life to the Lord should always be available to be used by God. We ought to say, "Lord, You can use me whether it is my day off or not. I may be out surfing, or on the golf course, or out snowboarding, but I want You to call upon me. I am available to represent You. Please call on me." Every Christian must be available and ready to echo the words of Samuel, " 'Speak, for Your servant hears' " (1 Samuel 3:10).
God is not looking for ability as much as He is looking for availability. You may think, God only uses the really talented people. He will never use me. There is not much I can offer Him. God is looking for someone simply to be available and let Him be strong on their behalf. God is not looking for strong people. He is looking for weak people through whom He can be strong. That means every person is qualified to be used by God. That means God can use you.
Are you available to be used by God? If not, why don't you let the Lord know that you would like Him to call upon you? He may call upon you before the night is over.
