To become a threshing instrument
Isaiah 41:14-15 - Fear not, thou worm Jacob, and ye men of Israel; I will help thee, saith the LORD, and thy redeemer, the Holy One of Israel. Behold, I will make thee a new sharp threshing instrument having teeth: thou shalt thresh the mountains, and beat them small, and shalt make the hills as chaff.
In our lives many of us come to the Lord because we have problems, but some of us may have come out of want to just know Him and build a better relationship with Him. But the Lord speaks to us like He spoke to Jacob the unredeemed man, the man with deficiencies and tells us like He told him that He wants to use us by making us into a threshing instrument.
A threshing instrument is used to separate the corn from the straw. Through this instrument God does not want to put any agricultural products but humans - specially His people. The Lord talks about mountains and hills being threshed, these are not the mountains of the Lord but the human high places that man has created for them selves. The high places are their thinking of themselves as being great persons, successful people, knowledgeable people or self made people. In short the Lord will use us to bring down the high places that people have created for themselves and make their thinking like chaff to be taken away with the wind.
Please do not be happy, unless we ourselves are not threshed, we do not become a threshing instrument.
[ Prayer Starter ]
Father God, make me a threshing instrument as You have spoken. Use me to better your people and to bring the best out of them. But Lord when You put me through the threshing be gentle with me. Let me not hold on to the high places I have created for myself and in the process get more hurt. I make this prayer in Jesus' Name, Amen.
