“As you grow in Me, many will come to you in need of what you have. Some will simply pass by on their way to other places. Others will tarry with you until they are whole enough to stand on their own. Still others will meet Jesus for the very first time because of the anointing that I place on you for their sake. Because you are beginning to understand your place in My economy and move only after waiting for My presence, I am free to anoint you with whatever is needed in any given situation.
"The more you give yourself to Me, the more I am able to impart Myself to you and direct others to you so they can find truth. A new portion is yours because of your seeking Me with all your heart. I am pleased. I will bless you with an abundant life. It will be My kind of abundance, full of eternal, life-giving qualities. Give away what you have now; I will continually give you more as it is needed. I love you!”
Hebrews 12:12-13 NLB
12) ”So take a new grip with your tired hands and stand firm on your shaky legs.
13) Mark out a straight path for your feet. Then those who follow you, though they are weak and lame, will not stumble and fall but will become strong.”
You need to know that there are many people waiting for us to grow up in Christ. They may not know it. We may not know them now, but in the Lord’s timing our paths will cross. In those ordained moments, days, weeks, years, or lifetimes, what has been given to us will be beneficial to their lives. It may even be life changing.
So many of us fail to realize that any growth to which we submit is really for the glory of God and the benefit of others. As we give the Lord more place in our lives, His wealth in us allows more to be poured to others. We become agents of His nature to those to whom He sends us or to those who come to us.
It’s not about me, is it, Lord?
