He is able.

Wow, it has been an intense couple of weeks. I can hardly sleep at night sometimes. The thought that is uppermost in my mind so much of the time, is the work that remains to be done in our world. Yes, I am trying to do my part in the work. Some friends and I are even doing something as I write this to do our part. And I sincerely hope that more will join in it as time goes on. But, I have to be honest. I don't feel worthy. I don't feel qualified. You see, I don't have degrees and lots of education, I am not a highly polished and refined person. I'm more or less a farm boy. I cannot do this work! Seriously, I can't! It's impossible. Or is it? “As the will of man co-operates with the will of God, it becomes omnipotent. Whatever is to be done at His command may be accomplished in His strength. All His biddings are enablings.” Christ's Object Lessons, pg. 333. You see, I still hold it true. I cannot ever do the work God has for me. But He can! Oh, how encouraging. Another thought: “We are nearing the close of this earth's history. We have before us a great work,--the closing work of giving the last warning message to a sinful world. There are men who will be taken from the plow, from the vineyard, from various other branches of work, and sent forth by the Lord to give this message to the world.”--Testimonies, vol. 7, p. 270.
Praise His name, He can use even me. I may come straight off of the tractor, and He can still use me! And friends, the reason why I am sharing this, is this: If He can use me, simple, unrefined me, He can use you. Brothers and sisters, do you think someone else is going to do the work? I have decided not. I have finally come to the conclusion that He is waiting for me. And He is waiting for you. What are we going to do about it? “As the will of man co-operates with the will of God, it becomes omnipotent.” Let's not forget that, amen? And let's enlist in His army. The battle's almost over. Why not speed it along?

“It is the privilege of every Christian, not only to look for, but to hasten the coming of the Saviour.”
The Acts of the Apostles, pg. 600.

Let's go for it friends.

Joining hands by faith,


  1. You don't need to have college degrees to work for God... :-) God gave the demoniacs a work to do and He's got a work for us to do too. Obviously, that doesn't mean we should not do our best to prepare ourselves or fit ourselves for even more usefulness and service but He's got a work for us even now as we learn. :)

    We read this, this evening and it really stood out to me. "He also impressed upon their minds the importance of letting simplicity mark every feature of their education. Only in this way could they receive the mold of heaven and go forth to work in the ways of the Lord." PK 225

    1. Amen to that quote! Thanks for sharing those thoughts Elyssa.
