God Needs You!

If anyone says to you, “Why are you doing this?” say, “The Lord has need of it.” —Mark 11:3

For His triumphal entry into Jerusalem,
Jesus chose a donkey to serve as His royal transportation. His
disciples were instructed to say, “The Lord has need of it” (Mark
11:3). Isn’t it astounding that the Son of God should use such lowly
means to accomplish His purposes? Alexander MacLaren commented on this:
“Christ comes to us in like fashion, and brushes aside all our
convenient excuses. He says, ‘I want you, and that is enough.’ ”

Think
of it! The Creator of the universe needs us and desires to fit us into
His eternal design! Though all-powerful and not dependent on any
creature, He has chosen to carry out His plans through lowly human instruments. If this were not so, He would have taken us to heaven as
soon as He saved us by His grace.

Someone once asked Francis of
Assisi how he was able to accomplish so much. He replied, “This may be
why: The Lord looked down from heaven and said, ‘Where can I find the
weakest, littlest man on earth?’ Then He saw me and said, ‘I’ve found
him. I will work through him, and he won’t be proud of it. He’ll see
that I am only using him because of his insignificance.’ ”

You may be small in your own eyes, but God has need of you!  — Paul Van Gorder

Yours is a mission you alone can fill,
Whether it be to build or teach or till;
Your goal may still be hidden from your view,
But somewhere God has urgent need of you. —Thayer

God is looking for ordinary people for extraordinary work.
