Meet Someone's Need
Prepare your heart. Who has God picked for you? We can’t possibly mentor everyone. The world is too big, the population too vast for us to meet the need of everyone we encounter. How do you know who? With experience this gets easier. Psalm 143:10 says “Teach me to do your will, for you are my God. May your gracious Spirit lead me forward on a firm footing.” Simply said we need to ask. Pray with expectation, He answers.
His answers have come in various ways. If you are not sure you are hearing Him. Ask yourself the following questions: Who do I already know? Is there a relationship I have that I could nurture? Who do I see on a regular basis that I don’t really know? Alert to His direction He will show you. Make a mental list of the names that come to mind. Continue to pray for these individuals regardless of your contact with them. Be patient as you wait for the next step.
Remember God promises to lead you. Your job is to follow his lead not concern yourself with questioning if He will. 2 Corinthians 2:14 promises “But thank God! He has made us his captives and continues to lead us along in Christ’s triumphal procession. Now he uses us to spread the knowledge of Christ everywhere, like a sweet perfume.” Trust Him, and He will show you.
