Winning Wisdom: For Special Use

Topic: For Special Use [Thursday, 11th May 2017]

In a wealthy home some utensils are made of gold and silver, and some are made of wood and clay. The expensive utensils are used for special occasions, and the cheap ones are for everyday use. 2 Timothy 2:20

God don't just want to use us to reach out to the world, He also wants to it do in a special way and at special occasions. The Lord loves to do the spectacular and He is happy when He finds us and uses us as the medium to do the spectacular. Scriptures say that special miracles was done by Apostle Paul, that mere handkerchief were healing the sick (Acts 19:11). That is one of the uncommon and spectacular miracles in scriptures. God also wants to use us, in these days, to do the same and much more.

But to be used by God to do these special miracles during special occasions, we must do what 2 Timothy 2:21 says: "if you keep yourself pure, you will be a special utensil for honorable use. Your life will be clean, and you will be ready for the Master to use you for every good work." Question: how do I keep myself cleans? Well, you can't keep yourself clean, only God can do that, but He does that with the word. Scriptures say in John 17:17,  "make them holy by your truth; teach them your word, which is truth." It is by the word God, taught to us, that can make us clean - holy.

Ephesians 5:25-26 says that "...Christ loved the church. He gave up his life for her to make her holy and clean, washed by the cleansing of God’s word." When you get the word of God into your system, it cleanses you and sets you up to be an instrument of God to do spectacular miracles or works at special occasions. God's Word is your purifier, and it purifies to the uttermost and makes you a special instrument in God's hands.

Keep winning daily.

Wise Action:

Make it a point of duty to study God's word. Get God's word into the bank of your heart and let it purify you and make you what it talks about.
