In the Sweet Spot

4 Jun

God’s Word: Acts 22:22-30

God’s Message to me: (My interpretation of what God is saying in these verses)

What does it take to move you to your sweet spot?  HammockThat is the place where you are at your best, content and thankful to be there.  Most people would begin thinking of lying in a hammock on an exotic aisle.  For Jesus, the sweet spot was the cross.  It was there He did his most important work—on your behalf.  Yes, you dwell in the center of His sweet spot.  And you who believe in and follow Him will dwell with Him in that sweet spot for eternity.  Jesus’ sweet spot was all about you, not about Himself at all.

Consider Jesus’ example when you think about what it is that moves you to your sweet spot.  For most people it is all about self-gratification.  Concern about self is a huge stumbling block on the road to self-fulfillment.  Jesus set side that stumbling block in order to go to the cross.  So few are able to get to that point in life where they are so concerned for another they would sacrifice self.  But those who do learn a lesson so valuable it surpasses all human reasoning.  Self-sacrifice, on behalf of another, puts one in the sweetest spot possible.

Look around you—see the needs—the causes that move you.  That movement in your being is your point of contact with My Spirit.  You were created just for that sweet spot of union.  No earthly pleasure can compare to reaching that point where you and I are united as one.  It is then that I am enabled to reach out to your hurting world so you become my hands and feet to touch others lives.  I have chosen you for tasks that you are empowered and gifted to do.  If you don’t do it, it won’t get done.  Together, you and I can move mountains.

God’s Question: Will you step away from self and look around?

God’s Promise: I have tasks that only you can fulfill for Me.

My Prayer to God:

I Praise You for sharing Your sweet spot with me.

I am Sorry I am not more engaged in helping others for You.

Thank You for never giving up on me.

Please Help Me set self aside and step into Your sweet spot.
