How would you feel if God interrupted your day to use you to minister to someone who is desperate for answers from heaven? Would you welcome it… be somewhat hesitant or say no thank you? Perhaps you feel disqualified to share Jesus with others, pray for them, or invite someone to church.
If you do, you are not alone. This is how Peter of the Bible felt when Jesus asked him to leave his fishing business and start catching men instead. Peter said, “get away from me Lord, for I am a sinful man”. In other words, he was saying I have failed too many times – I’m not worthy to help you reach people for God.
The good news for Peter, and all of us, is that because of the cross of Christ we are all forgiven and made worthy through His sacrifice. Regardless of our past failures, His grace allows God to use us anytime and anyplace.
Jesus interrupted Peter’s life and He may want to interrupt your life here and there to share an encouraging word, invite someone to church, or pray for someone you’ve just met.
There may have been a day when someone allowed God to interrupt them to minister that which brought a lasting impact in your life. In the same way, God wants to interrupt you at times to share a brief but powerful message of encouragement to someone whose life may be spiraling out of control.
“Do you know how much you are loved by God today and that He is working on your case right now.” Or, “God wants you to know your miracle from heaven is on the way. Be encouraged.” How about, “can I pray for you… Jesus can heal your broken heart and bring new life to your future.”
Let the Holy Spirit guide you. The Bible says we have an unction or anointing from The Holy one. That anointing can lead us to hurting people and then give them the words they need to hear to make a difference in their lives.
Invite God to give you divine interruptions throughout your day and watch Him use you in a wonderful way to minister to others, the same way others have ministered to you.
