“I’ll tell him what to say and he will pass on to them everything I command him.” Deuteronomy 18:18 (The Message Bible)
God spoke to the people gathered at Horeb. “I’ll raise up for them a prophet…” Imagine being tapped on your shoulder by God and be told you are to become one of his prophets—one who will listen for messages from God and pass them on to the people around you. And, imagine the skies being clear and you are told by God that a tornado will wipe out the town you are living in, would anyone listen to you?
It would be difficult to be chosen for such a position in God’s kingdom. I would not feel qualified for such an important task. Yet, we are chosen daily to be “little prophets” for God. He wants us to share with others what we have learned from scripture and from what we have learned throughout our own life experiences to make more “little prophets” for God.
Dear Lord, keep me aware of opportunities to share your love with others. Amen.
