I heal the pain. My hand covers the wound and restores the broken. Do not fear your brokenness will not allow full life. What I do not heal, I will use for greater than healing. The desire of perfection is as the desire for riches, even with great abundance there is always more to be desired. Do not fall within the snare. I give enough and heal enough. Your provision is sufficient for the work in which I call you. Do not give excuse that today you are insufficient. Use in My Name what you have been given, and you shall find more than you thought you had. Your treasure is greater than it appears. The copper coin given in My Name, becomes the gold of the Kingdom. The small measure of time given to he who is in need, becomes the deed of eternity remembered without end. The cool water offered to the thirsty because that is all you can offer, becomes a great well of abundance to he who thirsts. Focus not on your healing or the incompleteness of your desires; it is in the giving out of insufficiency that the partial is made whole.
Luke 21:1-4 (ESV) – Jesus looked up and saw the rich putting their gifts into the offering box, and he saw a poor widow put in two small copper coins. And he said, “Truly, I tell you, this poor widow has put in more than all of them. For they all contributed out of their abundance, but she out of her poverty put in all she had to live on.”
Bottom Line: We will never be perfect, and we are not called to be. We are called to be holy, earthen vessels claimed by God to be used for His purposes. We are all broken in some way, but in His eyes, we are fully capable of the work He has planned for us. We need to stop focusing on what we don’t have, and use what we do have to make Him smile, however small or humble it is. What does that look like at your workplace today?
