Who will serve the Lord?
When God chooses who will serve him, he looks at the spirit not what is easily seen.
In our church there is a young man who has Cerebral Palsy. He is confined to a specially designed wheel chair. His speech is impaired and his body does not respond as he would like. It is often out of his control and goes its own way.
His mother sings in the choir and brings him to rehearsals with her on Wednesday evenings and on Sundays he can be found in his chair next to the first row at the front of the church engaging in worship.
Recently a choir member, who is single, shared a lovely story about God's infinite wisdom in sending his servants to do his work.
She had experienced a particularly difficult week. She was feeling alone and greatly in need of comfort. In her angst she prayed to God saying, "God, I just need you to send me someone to touch me--to give me human comfort."
She sings in the choir and went to the rehearsal on Wednesday evening. As she was preparing her music, absorbed in getting ready for instruction, Michael directed his chair and came to a stop next to her. She reached out her hand to him and he took it,
continuing to hold it even as she sang.
Suddenly, she was struck with the realization that God was answering her prayer. Michael was the one God sent to provide touch and comfort for her. And, he was obeying his God.
God's wisdom is infinite.
Sometimes we entertain angels unaware
