For he chose us in him before the creation of the world to be holy and blameless in his sight. Ephesians 1:4
The one thing the devil fears more than any other thing is a God’s man who is willing to say these two little words each day: “use me.” We especially grab Satan’s attention when God asks us to begin inviting others to explore a relationship with Christ. Satan will stop at nothing to keep these two words: “use me” from ever being fused together in prayer. He needs to keep them separate in your life. Using other things is much better, he’ll say. Using people, substances, credit cards, false motivations, feelings, is all great. Using them now is optimal.
If the devil can make God’s man a dedicated user, occupying his life and mind with other things, we won’t be available to be used by God. So go on, he’ll say, use, abuse and blow a fuse! Satan would love to decommission you, dishonorably discharge you, and destroy your availability.
“Use me.” Two little words — a verb and a pronoun. If meant sincerely, they will turn your life around.
Father, use me. I want to be your man.
