We have this treasure in earthen vessels, that the excellence of the power may be of God and not of us. 2 Corinthians 4:7
God is the glory and the power. If I live my life with that firmly planted in my head and my heart… I can see my role clearly. I am to be an amplifier or a megaphone to spread the good news to the rest of the world. It is not my power or my presence that is creative or life changing… it’s only HIM! I can work to help spread the joy that is living in His light. There are many great products that are enhanced by amplifiers… iPod is wonderful for individual listening but when I have a party at my house… I need to plug it in to a device that will make the sound heard by all. The music is not changed only multiplied.
At a sporting event the woman singing the Star Spangled Banner would make very little impact without a microphone… but with it, the entire stadium is stirred with patriotism.
God gives me the opportunity to serve as a megaphone for His love . Love would be a very dry and lonely thing without expression and outward signs. Those opportunities for amplification of an interior emotion help me deepen the relationships with those around me..
I pray each and every day that I will be able to be a catalyst or a conduit for the Love of God that lives in my heart so that others will see Him as the Divine Healer, Wonder Counselor and Savior. If I can be that Multiplier, I will indeed have served Him well. Helping others to see their giftedness and realize their unlimited potential because of the one who lives within them is indeed a calling that I embrace with my whole heart!
Lord Help me always to remember that I hold Your gifts in an earthen vessel. My job on this earth is to joyfully magnify Your greatness. Help me to convey the music that You have created in me with humility.
