Last night I was reading the story of the inventor of the Morse code- Samuel Morse. The backstory that created the desire to develop a way of faster communication is fascinating, I recommend you go look it up.
But what I wanted to point out today is what he said after it was all over and he was provided many accolades.
“I have made a valuable application of electricity not because I was
superior to other men but solely because God, who meant it for mankind,
must reveal it to someone and He was pleased to reveal it to me.”
That is such an interesting and unusual attitude. But it’s one that shows great faith in the creator and his willingness to be a part of our lives. It is a thought that should make us pause to think about how the Lord is using us and what he will reveal to us that we should be using for his purpose.
As you go about doing today be used as an instrument in the hands of the Creator.
For we are co-workers in God’s service; you are God’s field, God’s building. (1 Corinthians 3:9 NIV)
