A young African American Woman raises her arms facing the sunset down over the valley and the ocean.

Also I heard the voice of the Lord, saying, Whom shall I send, and who will go for us? Then said I, Here am I; send me. — Isiah 6:8.

This article was written by me in 2012. God led me to run this one again for new readers, and as a reminder to all of us as to why we were sent here on Earth in such a time as this.

In a sermon by Jonathan McLeod, I was reminded of a message God gave me. It’s worthy of sharing with you. During the entire week, I felt compelled to say these words: Lord, this is your body. You made me so that I could come to this earth for your good pleasure. Today, Lord, use my eyes, Lord, so that I might see. Use me, Lord, for all those who are seeking after Thee. Use my ears, Lord, so that I may hear those who are crying for help because they live in constant fear. Use my tongue, Lord, so I may confess my sins, Lord, and then I can give testimony to the world of your goodness. Use my arms, Lord, so I may reach out — and gather up those who are lost who doubt your goodness and mercy.

Those who doubt you, Lord, you say in the scriptures in Mark 11:23, “For verily I say unto you, that whosoever shall say unto this mountain, Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea; and shall not doubt in his heart, but shall believe that those things which he saith shall come to pass; he shall have whatsoever he saith.”

Use my legs, Lord; let them run free to bring your sheep back unto Thee. Use me, Lord, use all of me. Help me to find those who can’t see.” If you ever doubt God can use you, read Ephesians 2:10 which says, “For we are God’s masterpiece. He has created us anew in Christ Jesus, so we can do the good things he planned for us long ago.”

Don’t you know you’re God’s masterpiece? You were created to do His Will. Scripture tells us, He knew you before you were formed in your mother’s womb. We are His masterpiece, defined as a product with a designated purpose. We are His workmanship, and you can search the scriptures to prove it.

God uses whomever He chooses. Look at what Moses said: “O Lord, I have never been eloquent, neither in the past nor since you have spoken to your servant. I am slow of speech and tongue.”

The Lord said to him, “Who gave man his mouth? Who makes him deaf or mute? Who gives him sight or makes him blind? Is it not I, the Lord? Now go; I will help you speak and will teach you what to say,” Exodus 4:10-12.

“My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness,” 2 Corinthians 12:9.

Take time to pray without ceasing, quote scriptures throughout the day and sing songs of praise! When you see someone in need, help them the way the New York police officer did when he paid out of pocket to buy a man some shoes. He was allowing God to use him.

I know God is using me when I can encourage another student to apply himself or herself to do their work. Several students, who had once refused to work, proved just how intelligent they really are. They seem to be able to identify with me. It’s as if they are saying with the joy in their little eyes, “I’m so glad you’re here! I don’t see many teachers around here who look like me!”
