Back in the day when my hubby and I were kids, going to the “walk in” was a real treat. There was always at least one usher whose job was to make sure people were being quiet and that no shenanigans were going on. Up and down the rows and up through the balcony he would go. He was the least favorite of all the employees. Moviegoers didn’t like him and he was avoided by everyone. Yet his job was so very important. Without him overseeing things, the scene would be chaos because kids will be kids. He was there to usher and that was his job.
Maybe you’re in a hard place. You may have days when you want to give up, walk away or do something different. You feel underappreciated, over worked and not thought much of. You need to know today that right where you are is right where God has you, no matter how hard it may seem. You may feel like an outcast and useless part of whatever team you are on, but God knows you and loves you and He has a marvelous plan for your life. Trust Him today and ask Him what He wants to do about your situation. Don’t move, don’t quit, don’t give up – He will give you rest and peace and perhaps one day He will give you a change. But wait on Him, because He has a plan.
Oh beloved, did you know? You are an usher! That difficult place you are in? That’s where God wants to bring His glory. Where you are is where Kingdom principals are being called forth. You are a conductor for those Kingdom principles! You may feel like the least of the least, unnoticed, unrewarded by man but you are carrying God’s truth into your realm of influence! You are not there by mistake. You are not called to be overcome by the situations, places or people – you are called to change the atmosphere because you carry the Lord into every place you go! Speak God’s truth everywhere you go. It may seem like a very difficult situation in the flesh, but in the Spirit there are magnificent things going on. Watch as the whole situation begins to change, little by little perhaps at first.
Everyone is loved by God and needs His touch. You are the visible touch for Him in a world that is looking for love in all the wrong places. Even in your own hurtful situations that seem impossible to overcome you can call forth God’s will into your very own life! God’s Word is true and you belong to Him!
God loves you and He’s for you. Let Him show you His plan. Ask Him for eyes that see the supernatural in the natural. Trust Him to make a way for you at just the right time. Listen to His still small voice order your steps for your good and His glory as you usher in the Kingdom and live in the light of His glory and grace!
