I’m amazed at the new things God teaches me in my daily walk with Him. I’m often overwhelmed how He puts people in my life or He puts me in certain situations to minister to others or to be ministered to. I pray every morning that God would bless my life today with someone new that I might minister too. Amazingly He answers that prayer everyday.

No one ever comes up and says, “God sent me to you, so minister to me.” I have to pay attention, open my eyes and find others (Luke 7:13). While many people will call it “chance,” or “luck” or “coincidence,” somehow if you look close enough you’ll see God’s finger prints all over the situation He’s put you in.

God has blessed me with some amazing opportunities to minister to others in the past few months. The cool part is those same people have ministered to me as well. I’m glad I’ve asked God to bless me with opportunities to minister to others. I’m glad I’ve looked to find those God has placed in my life, and I’m glad I’m seeing how God is working in my life.

I love watching God work in my life. When was the last time you looked for Him working in your life? When was the last time you asked God to give you someone to help?

    i’ve often asked God to lay a burden on the heart of someone i have told of Him but i have never asked God to send me someone to minister to. thanks Trey, another great post… our goal should be “that no one be left behind”. Amen

  3. Zack says:

    Yes, another great post here Trey.
    I’m blessed to have numerous ministry opportunities for people sacking groceries at the grocery store. Awesome stuff!
    We can see that all throughout the book of Acts too. Christians ministering to the people in their communities. Awesome stuff!

    I have had similar experiences, but unfortunately not often enough.

  5. Robert Lukenbill says:

    You are right Trey no one ever comes up to us (at least not often in my life) and says God sent me to you now teach me. God uses experiences (both positive and negative) in our life to bring about these opportunities to teach others. Our reaction to these opportunities will determine whether we open doors or not. Consider what Paul talks about in Philippians chapter 1. How his chains brought about change even in the imperial guard because he was positive about his experience of being in prison instead of being negative.

    BTW-read the book “The Shack” by William Young if you haven’t….it uses this very thought as a basis for forgiveness and why we should use every opportunity to further our ministry in God. Great read!

    Great post brother!

    I remember when we used to sing “Lead Me to Some Soul Today…”. Did we quit singing it because we were afraid or lazy or just fell out of the habit with so many other great songs to sing? I hear it in my head from time to time. I too try to look for those opportunites each day. Some times being a “minister” just gets in the way of ministry.

  7. James says:

    BTW – the lack of opportunites to truly minister may be part of the question of longevity. I have know more than one person who left a congregation becasue he wanted to minister more and was trapped in their system of doing church. That is just one in a long list of reasons but is one none-the-less.

  • good list. Don't forget Nickelback, OJ, ISIS and beer-throwing Blue Jay fans.
  • He was pretty tough to listen to as well.
  • As crazy as it might sound, Chris Collinsworth just might be worse to listen to than the song Christmas Shoes.
  • Please remember that some Christmas music is incredibly offensive to people with grandmothers who actually were run over by reindeer.
  • Unfortunately, not a great night for "bobcats." :)
