I surrender all

Two old ladies, one 82 and one 84, one stone blind took to heart a great concern for god to do something in their parish, and both of them took to prayer and waiting on god in their little cottage.
One night god gave one of the sister's a vision.
In the vision she saw their church crowded with young people
And so moved was she that she turned to her sister and said
"I believe that revival is coming to the parish and I am going to send for the minister in the morning."
She sent for the minister, and told her story.
That she believed that god was going to visit the parish in revival and the youth of the
Community will be swept into churches again.
At that time there wasn't a single young person attending public worship.
So the minister listened to the old lady and took her word as a message from god to his heart.
So he turned to her and said
"Now what do you think we ought to do?
"What" she said. "Give yourselves to prayer, give yourselves to waiting on god.
."Get your elders together, get your deacons together and spend at least 2 nights a week waiting upon god in prayer.
And if you do that, at the other end of the parish my sister and I will get down on knees here from ten until 2 or 3 o'clock in the morning.
So the minister called his elders and they waited on god in prayer.
1 month later god brought revival to that place...
(Taken from the Lewis revival in the Scottish Hebrides)

So my question is this
Have you given god your weakness, your faults, your disabilities along with your strengths and giftings? Or like me have you held back on these, mistakenly thinking that they were of no use?
From this story above we can see that these 2 old ladies had many reasons for opting out of things (old, blind, poor) and yet they surrendered there all to him and he in turn used them to effect great changes in their community.
They could have said I am too old or I am disabled and left it at that.
God used their so-called weaknesses and turned them into his strengths.
God wants our whole lives.
I have been challenged to let god use my all for his glory and that means the things I struggle with, those things that make me feel and appear weak.
He wants us with our frailties and faults, the disadvantages and disabilities...
Be encouraged; don't let your weaknesses hold you back from doing things...
Our weakness may be the very tool god wants to use...



If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
