During my morning meditation, reading a message from Oswald Chambers, a point really stood out: “There are some people who are totally unemployable in the spirit realm. They are spiritually feeble and weak and they refuse to do anything unless they are supernaturally inspired… If you make a god out of your best moments, you will find that God will fade out of your life . . .”
In the midst of all of the national concerns about the economy and unemployment and excess spending, I suddenly find myself wondering if I am spiritually employed? I also have to check my heart often to determine if I am making the work I do take the place of my time and relationship with God? Prolife work is very demanding, and we can find ourselves consumed by our “good works.” Yet, the question “can God use me,” is always there. Do I worship the mission and the mission for life? Or do I worship God?
Too often, the temptation to give all to the prolife ministry reaches into my true desire, to be close to God. Am I saying that we should stop doing our ministry of the Gospel of Jesus Christ and our prolife work? Of course not! When God calls us to stand for the unborn, the sick, the elderly and the least of these, we must answer!
Worshipping God, and allowing God to direct us in our work, vocations and ministries is so liberating. When we concentrate on our relationship with God, our responsibility becomes staying in constant touch with God! And He empowers us to do the prolife work!
Then, we don’t decide when to come and when to go, God decides that for us! God engineers everything, and when He directs us, our goal should be to “pour out our lives in wholehearted devotion to Him” in our prolife work.
