All true ministry begins in the presence of God IV

Peace to you and grace be multiplied in Jesus Name!I want us to continue to explore the classic example we saw in the book of Isaiah about starting our ministry in the presence of God. So far we have seen that such lifestyle allows us to see things from a godly perspective. it also helps us to have a sound understanding of ourselves. We saw that spending time with God also helps in transforming our character and removing our limitations.Today we are going to see another thing that happened to Isaiah in the temple as he drew near to God.I Isaiah saw the needs that really concerns God God’s heart at the moment. 
“Then I heard the voice of the Lord saying, “Whom shall I send? And who will go for us?” And I said, “Here am I. Send me!” (Isaiah 6: 8).
We can be too busy about many good things, but there are some specific needs that are closer to the heart of God right now, that He knows you have the opportunity to meet. The only way you can be aware of those needs is when you turn a listening ear to Him.The mistake of Martha when Jesus visited their house was that she became over busy with the desire to feed Jesus and His disciples with physical food. Main while at that moment feeding the Spirit of Jesus by just spending time with Him and listening to Him was more important. Mary got it right and Jesus praised her for that.
“As Jesus and his disciples were on their way, he came to a village where a woman named Martha opened her home to him. 39She had a sister called Mary, who sat at the Lord’s feet listening to what he said. 40But Martha was distracted by all the preparations that had to be made. She came to him and asked, “Lord, don’t you care that my sister has left me to do the work by myself? Tell her to help me!” 41″Martha, Martha,” the Lord answered, “you are worried and upset about many things, 42but only one thing is needed. Mary has chosen what is better, and it will not be taken away from her.” (Luke 10: 38-42).
Are you so busy about ministry that you are forgetting to spend time with the master? How will you know if you are pleasing Him or not, if you do not take some time to listen to His evaluation of what you are doing? It is so important to cultivate a sensitive heart that can easily discern God’s desire. This kind of heart can be cultivated as we understand that all ministries should begin in the presence of God. This is God’s word for you today.May God help you to develop a more sensitive heart as you continue to serve God with your gifts and ability in Jesus Name!Pastor Rufus Ajiboye
