[Able to avail]
I was praying with a friend who thanked me for being available when she called, but I was thinking how nice it was to be able to avail for her in prayer! When we are available for the Lordâ€™s use He gives us the ability to avail. James 5:16 says that â€śThe effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much.â€ť We are ready for use, having sufficient powerâ€¦promises are accessible and made valid. Manifestation of the promise is at hand if you are just one little thingâ€¦available! Does that mean then if we are not available we are not able to availâ€¦something to think about, huh? I guess the whole point isnâ€™t in the guesswork but to be avail able!
