TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 15

 

One day as these men were worshiping the Lord and fasting, the Holy Spirit said, “Appoint Barnabas and Saul for the special work to which I have called them.” 3 So after more fasting and prayer, the men laid their hands on them and sent them on their way.

Acts 13:2-3 (NLT)

 


 

LAUNCHING OUT: SURRENDER MY HEART

 

Jack Andrews wrote: I read about this football team that was facing the biggest team they had ever faced. The coach called the play to run the tailback, Jones, off left tackle. The quarterback called the play, broke the huddle, and ran the play. Instead of running the play the coach called, the quarterback ran a bootleg and was clobbered. The coach was furious. He called the same play to run the tailback, Jones, off left tackle. This time the quarterback dropped back and passed to the wide receiver and it was incomplete. The team huddled up and the quarterback looked to the sideline for the play. This time the frustrated coach yelled to the quarterback, “Give the ball to Jones!” Jones stepped out of the huddled and yelled back to the sidelines, “Coach, Jones doesn’t want the ball!”

 

Thank God that Barnabas and Saul wanted “the ball!” In Acts 13:2, the Holy Spirit tells the church leaders to launch Barnabas and Saul into the mission field. We know these two men were open and obedient because they went.

 

Reflection

Are you willing to go where God asks you to go? The first step in being used by God is an inner conviction from God that He has called you to this work. Therefore, it’s beneficial for us to spend some time in prayer and fasting so God can show us His will and soften our heart.

 

Praise

Thank God for His calling on your life. Ask God to give you clarity about where He wants to launch you.
