Be that piece of the puzzle! Can God depend on us?

Hello, once again all Royal Prayer Guards! 

I am grateful for all of you and those who unite with us online. Thank you for continuing in God’s agenda of praying for people who need Jesus, the Savoir of the world. Thank you also for praying for all those in Christ. We all need prayer and each other.


The main objective of this prayer focus.

1. Be that one piece of the puzzle God can use in the lives of others. 
2. Be a solution or an answer to a problem.

A  question.
Can God and others rely on us? 

Think about the following statements.
1. To be relied on we need to be available to the Lord, and people.
2. To be relied on we need to be working properly or effectively. 
3. To be relied on we need to fit together with the other members of the body of Christ.



A beautiful combination.
I believe that the following combination will be required to give God glory and honor.

1. Reliable! (Trustworthiness) 1 Corinthians 4:1-2
2. Available! (Accessible or reachable) (Not self-centered)
3. Working properly! (Effectively)
4. Fitting together with the other members of the body of Christ. (People)

Insights:
1. I was pondering over the difference between being reliable and available.
2. I learned that a person could be available (Show up) but not trustworthy. (Honest)

1 Corinthians 4:1-2
This is how you are to look upon us, as servants of Christ and stewards of God's secret truths. 2 Now in this matter of stewards your first requirement is that they must be trustworthy

3. I view stewards as anyone who has responsibility, such as parents, and grandparents… to name a few. 

1 Corinthians 4:2 
The requirements for a good guide are reliability and accurate knowledge

The question again.
Can God and others rely on us? 

Consider this portion of God's word.

1 Corinthians 1:10
But I urge and entreat you, brethren, by the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that all of you be in perfect harmony and full agreement in what you say, and that there be no dissensions or factions or divisions among you, but that you be perfectly united in your common understanding and in your opinions and judgments. 

Suggested prayer opportunities.
Turn the following into prayers for all those in Christ, including yourself.

3. Be reliable or trustworthy. 1 Corinthians 4:1-2 
4. Be available. (Accessible or reachable) (Not self-centered
5. Decide to work effectively for the Lord and others.
