Are you fully available to God?

This is how we know what love is: Jesus Christ laid down his life for us. And we ought to lay down our lives for our brothers and sisters. - 1 John 3:16

The famous author Patsy Clairmont was sitting next to a young man on an airplane. She had already observed something remarkable about this young man… he called her “Ma’am.” Concluding he was from either from the south or in the service, she decided the latter was the most likely choice.

“What branch of the service are you in?” she asked.

“The Marines. I’m just coming back from a year and a half tour in Desert Storm. My family will be meeting me at the airport.”

Clairmont commented that he must have thought about returning to his family and home many times while he was in the Middle East.

“Oh, no, Ma’am,” the soldier replied. “We were taught never to think of what might never be, but to be fully available right where we were.”

When it comes to living out God’s calling in your life, are you fully available right where you are? Or, do you play it safe, sitting on the fence and not wanting to be too committed for the fear of looking like a “fanatic”?

God’s calling in your life is of the utmost importance. So just like a soldier, lay down yourself each day and be fully available to accomplish His mission for your life!

Prayer Challenge

Ask God to help you be fully available to His calling, willing to forsake everything you have to fulfill His mission for your life.
