Luke 24:28-32Then they drew near to the village where they were going, and He indicated that He would have gone farther.  29 But they constrained Him, saying, “Abide with us, for it is toward evening, and the day is far spent.” And He went in to stay with them.Now it came to pass, as He sat at the table with them, that He took bread, blessed and broke it, and gave it to them. 31 Then their eyes were opened and they knew Him; and He vanished from their sight. 32 And they said to one another, “Did not our heart burn within us while He talked with us on the road, and while He opened the Scriptures to us?”
Have you ever thought about how you are conceived in your mother’s womb? How the Maker formed you in your womb? How He protected you when you’re born? How He gave you a good education? How He gave you a job to survive? How He led you so far? Out of all these things, are you still feeling that your life is messed up so far? Think about the life of Moses, he was also messed up when he fled Egypt. Think about Joseph when he was sold as a slave and endured the dungeon life when it is not a mistake of his own. So what do we say about our life. Will we crib about our life inadequacies and failure or will we be ready to pick up a job for the Lord when it is time to begin? Moses picked up his job for the Almighty after the burning bush incident. Joseph took his role as the officer in charge of Egypt after the mighty revelation of a dream. David took his role as a King after a long fugitive life even though he was anointed long before as King. The scriptures give us the account of people in which we could bring our life under the light of it and be evaluated and could be amended with the help of Holy Spirit. We don’t have to crib or whine about our situation or inability to serve God, but instead, know His leading, receive His power and be ready to serve Him at any given point in our life. Open your ear for the Holy Spirit to speak to you, remove the deeds of the flesh that entice you into your natural activities of pleasure, know your time of silence or suffering or evaluation and then ask God to use you mightily for His revival in this midst of perverse generation. God will certainly meet with you like the disciple who walked to Emmaus and will light your heart with burning fire.
