Just Report for Duty!


“I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.” Philippians 4:13

Feeling as though YOU just cannot minister at a place so depressing as an abortion mill? Have you asked God if His strength might not be powerful enough for YOU? Both you and I know what God has said He will do for strengthening those who obey His call to defend those sentenced to death. So, read now the words of Holocaust-survivor, Corrie Tenboom, and see if she would have you wave your flag of surrender or put on the Armor of God!

“Trying to do the Lord’s work in your own strength is the most confusing, exhausting, and tedious of all work. But when you are filled with the Holy Spirit, then the ministry of Jesus just flows out of you. There are no ‘if’s’ in God’s world. And no places that are safer than other places. The center of His will is our only safety – let us pray that we may always know it! When we see that we are powerless to do a thing, it is a great joy that we can come and step inside the ability of Jesus. So, don’t bother to give God instructions; just report for duty. I must remember that it is not my ability, but my response to God’s ability, that counts.” Corrie TenBoom

    Amen! Amazing truth and encouragement. I am reminded of David in the Bible. So many people act like David was the one going boldly forward to meet Goliath. His brothers thought it was just youthful bravado. But David simply showed up and recognized that God had been insulted…the God who could do anything. I am convinced that David was simply anointed and available…a willing vessel for God to use. May God show us how to go forward in His Strength!
