Psalm 29 (NIV)

I Samuel 3:1-9 (NIV)

Acts 9:1-9 (NIV)

We find out in these passages that the Lord God can do anything and all things.  Psalm 29 speaks to us of the glory, strength, creative power, and majesty of God.  And yet at the end of the Psalm we read of God’s interest and protection of his people.  “The Lord gives strength to his people; the Lord blesses his people with peace.”  And with David we too can add our thanksgiving to the Lord.  

In I Samuel 3 and Acts 9 we see that God calls people to ministry, whether its a young boy or a persecutor of the Church.   Both Samuel and Saul who becomes Paul respond to God’s call in their own way.  God uses unexpected people to follow him; a little boy and an enemy of God’s people come to trust and serve the Lord God.

Samuel grows up and becomes a significant Old Testament leader.  While Paul, a persecutor of Christians, becomes a follower of Jesus, a missionary for Christ, and a New Testament author of many books.

God wants to work in your life and in my life.  Today, let’s ask the Lord to work through us and use us to his glory, however he sees fit. Amen!
