# 25 Don’t Hesitate

God’s Word:     Proverbs 24:11,12

God’s Message to Me:

Your areas of strengths and giftedness were given to you to use to bless others.  Life is not just a playground where everyone is trying to be king of the mountain and push all others off.  You are all in life together for a purpose—to help one another develop their strengths and together be successful.

Don’t hesitate to step in and help others who are struggling, nearly perishing.  No excuses such as “That’s none of my business” will get you off the hook.  If you are in a position to be aware of another’s need then consider that I have sent you there to help.  The need may be physical, spiritual, emotional, social—whatever.

My eyes are constantly roaming the earth and noticing the little things, the small acts of kindness, of helpfulness.  I also notice the times you ignore the needs of others with weak excuses.  You are my Ambassador of mercy to the people around you.  When you feel the inner urge to respond to a need—that urge comes from Me—don’t hesitate to act.  Those seemingly little things make you great in My sight.

God’s Question to Me:  What has come to your mind as you read these words—consider that as My urging for you to respond to that need?

God’s Promise to Me:   I have blessed you so that you can be a blessing to others—not just so you can pile up the blessings and retire in ease.

My Song to God:      Rescue the Perishing

Out in the highways and byways of life,
many are weary and sad;
are weary and sad
Carry the sunshine where darkness is rife
making the sorrowing glad.

Refrain:
Make me a blessing,
Make me a blessing,
Out of my life
out of my life
May Jesus shine;
Make me a blessing, O savior, I pray,
I pray Thee, my Savior,
Make me a blessing to someone today.

Tell the sweet story of Christ and His love;
Tell of His pow’r to forgive;
His pow’r to forgive.
Others will trust Him if only you prove
true ev’ry moment you live.

Refrain:

Make me a blessing,
Out of my life
out of my life
May Jesus shine;
Make me a blessing, O savior, I pray,
I pray Thee, my Savior,
Make me a blessing to someone today.

Give as ’twas given to you in your need;
Love as the Master loved you;
Be to the helpless a helper indeed;
Unto your mission be true.
Refrain

Make me a blessing,
Out of my life
out of my life
May Jesus shine;
Make me a blessing, O savior, I pray,
I pray Thee, my Savior,
Make me a blessing to someone today.
