If a man cleanses himself from the latter, he will be an instrument for noble purposes, made holy, useful to the Master and prepared to do any good work. 2 Timothy 2:21 (NIV)
Would you like to be an instrument I can use? Would you like to be prepared and ready to be used by me? Would you like to accomplish my purposes and fulfill my plans? Would you like me to bear an abundance of fruit for my kingdom and bring glory to my name through your life? Yes, I want you to use me. Yes, I always want to be ready for your use so I can accomplish your purposes and fulfill your plans. Nothing would please me more than to be able to be able to know and do your will. That is very good.
How will you prepare me and make me ready to do any good work? That is a very good question. I will ask you a few questions. Go ahead, I’m listening. Will you draw near to me so I can draw near to you? Will you seek me with all your heart and mind and soul and strength? Is it your desire to love, follow and serve me above all else? Will you be fully devoted to me. Is it your passion to live your life fully with and for me? I am very glad that you are asking me these questions. Why is that? It is my joy to answer them. I want to tell you how much I love you. I will draw near to you as you draw near to me. I will rest in your presence. I will listen to your voice. I will allow you to restore my soul. I will allow you to change my heart and transform my mind. I welcome you to do whatever work needs to be in down in my heart and mind and life. That is very good.
I have forgiven you of all your sins. I have cleansed you of all your unrighteousness. I will make you ready for my use. I will make you able to accomplish my purposes and fulfill my plans. How does this all sound to you? It sounds fantastic. I want to tell you that I am fully devoted to you. You will find no hesitation within me. I will go wherever you guide me to do whatever you ask of me. I am at your disposal. I am ready for your use. Yes, you are. That is very good. Watch and wait and listen. I will be sending you on a mission. I give you instructions. I will lead you to where I want you to go. I will give you what I want you to do. Here I am, send me. Yes, I will.
Lord, I will separate myself from any situation or circumstance that displeases you. Even still I know that I will sin. Forgive and cleanse me of all my unrighteousness so that I will be a clean instrument for you to use in this world. Amen
