Day 17

Know your role

1 Corinthians 3:6-7 (NKJV)
6 I planted, Apollos watered, but God gave the increase. 7 So then neither he who plants is anything, nor he who waters, but God who gives the increase.
During this fast, focus on your role in God's work.  You have a place and a mission that God has set forth just for you.  No one's purpose is greater than the others.  Each person has a valuable role to play in the Church.  
  • Do you know your role? 
  • If not, have you asked God to show it to you?  
  • What are you burdened for?  
  • What are some things that make you tick?
  • What's stopping you from jumping into the role God has called you too?

I realize today's devotion is full of questions, but what better time to ask these things than during a fast.  God believes in you and we do too.  

Remember, we do our part but it's all for nothing if our greatest Partner, God himself doesn't send the increase.  Our efforts matter but He is the power of growth.  Lord, shine down and grant increase.
